Time has come for a new leather jacket.

Any suggestions on where to go either local or online.
Went to a couple places, but found only 1 decent one.
found some nice ones online, but I prefer local.

Need good price for good quality.
Vented leather motorcycle jacket.

Though I do wear a lot of black and I do "enjoy" Goth, not in a leather love kind of way.

And not that type of leather jacket. Motorcycle jacket. Non-racing.

That's really unintentionally funny! She's just got to comment!

LMAO Triniman!

I am by know means a subject matter expert in leather, but some locations that come to mind:

Leather Master on Ness
There is a place on Ross (In the exchange, West side of Princess, I'll have to walk by and take note of the name) that sells leather goods.

So, I did not find anything good local. Found a good one online though.
LeatherUp.com

Jacket was $100 US plus $35 for shipping and $30 taxes from the border ($165 USD total).
Closest I came to this jacket locally was $350 and not as good (no vents, no removable liner).

Ordered Thursday, had it Tuesday at noon (wow).
On my online invoice the shipping was $35 US via FedEx, and that is what I paid.
On the invoice on the box, shipping was $105 US.

Hell of a difference, so I called and questioned the difference.
Turns out, that is what THEY paid to ship it to me.

That means I paid them $135 total for a jacket and shipping.
And they paid $105 to ship it to me.
So if that jacket cost them any more than $30 they are selling it at a loss.
Holy sh1t.

Wow! Their Fedex estimator is fubar'd! Unless they just do that to make the customer feel like they got a steal of a deal....

I order an awful lot of sh1te on-line. Not because I don't want to shop locally (I do, and I spend lots locally). But it is just so damned convenient.

Outfitters on McPhilips - Only had a few, also had a few, but nothing my size or style.
Outlet place in Inkster Industrial (Can’t recall the name) - Only had a few, and this was the one with the $350 jacket.
Canada West Boot - Nothing.
Leather Ranch - Nothing.
Danier - Nothing.
Half dozen other places online, before I expanded to Canada wide searches (and here). Which is how I ended up at the above place.
