    Brown leathers?

    OK, different strokes and all but the Darth Vader look isn't my style. Anyone out there able to suggest good quality, armored, BROWN, leather riding jackets?

    There's a learning curve when wearing black leathers. A certain swagger has to be developed.

    I wear black leathers but wish there were more brown available. The choices are limited

    Have a peek at Vanson Leathers .
    I have some of their gear and been to the shop many times. I think they will do any color you want.

    yeah.
    and there's a good reason that you CANNOT get one today...

    probably anyone who makes custom leathers will do a set in brown for you. i have an old Vetter
    Bomber-style riding jacket but no armour in that one.

    I can expedite the transaction with your Nigerian banker. I will just need a little upfront fee to cover the costs that in turn you will recover when he sends you the money.
