Hi Gang... Long time since you heard from me. Sorry 'bout that, but I have a question: Are there any USA Companies that make custom motorcycle jackets anymore? I can't seem to find any. I had a jacket I wanted to have made in my "Wish List" file by a company called "Classic Motorcycle Jackets", but I guess they went out of business as I can't find them on the web. Too much of what's available is imported crap. I'm looking for traditional motorcycle jacket, w/ brass hardware, (zippers, snaps, etc.). Heavy duty, last forever. Got any leads. Thanks. NickNasty

If you've got the $, check out Langlitz Leathers. Custom made to your measurements. They're in Portland, I think, and you can get measured there or have a tailor take your measurements and send them to Langlitz. Wait time is usually a few months. http://www.langlitz.com/

For less cash, a lot of people like Fox Creek Leather. Not 100% custom fit, but not off the rack either. Also made in USA. http://www.foxcreekleather.com/

Our cowhide is drum-dyed using a 3-3.5 oz leather and tumbled to a soft heavy perfection in our men's jackets and a beautiful soft 2-2.5 oz natural leather in our ladies' jackets.

Our leather jackets are nylon stitched and the stitching is guaranteed for the life of the jacket. We only use YKK zippers, the best available.

+1 on FoxCreek. Not custom, but they pretty much have what you described.

I have one of their jackets and the quality is incredible.

I like Vanson leathers too. A little too pricey for me but everyone I know who has Vanson is ecstatic. I can's speak for the others.

I also can highly recommend FoxCreek. Their jackets are just phenomenal. I own two of them and cannot accurately describe just how high quality they are. By far the best leather jackets I have ever owned.

A lot of members recommend Fox Creek.

I like some of the Vanson leathers (don't own any). I also like Bates racing jackets. Both have websites you can check out.
