Re: How about this jacket?
I was at Vanson's earlier this summer. Apparently their jackets are the new North Face in the city-which is to say, it's what people are wearing for fashion in NYC similiar to North Face products several years ago. And just like the people who wore North Face had no interest in summiting McKinley, this new crop doesn't ride bikes. So Vanson is developing a line of jackets that are more fashionable than functional. They will be cheaper than the real deal and as such will not have all the features and will be built of a thinner fashion weight leather (their term, not mine!). Be wary. Although not the case with this particular jacket, what I noticed it that the fashion jackets seem to be sized in traditional S, M, L, XL while MC jackets are still sized by chest size.
By the way, I'm not a Vanson hata!! In fact, I hope to buy one this winter.
