Fine Creek Leather just released one beautiful jacket, the Shinki leather version of their Type I denim style jacket. These have a shorter break-in period and slightly lighter weight which is great for all weather wear.

Fine Creek makes some of the most beautiful horsehide jackets we’ve seen. Using a vegetable tanned Japanese horsehide, which ages in a fairly fast manner, they cut and sew these jackets in their own studio in Tokyo. The quality of stitching is as good as it gets for a leather jacket, and we’ve not seen many jackets age as well as these do. Depending on the panel they’ll use a different type of stitch thread and thread count to achieve puckering in certain areas for added character.

Care: We recommend not doing much to these jackets outside of wearing them. The natural oils in this level of quality of horsehide is enough for quite a few years. At the most Fine Creek suggests to wipe down the jacket every few months with a damp soft towel, and once every couple of years to rub in some Mustang Paste leather conditioner into the jacket.
