    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.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone! Sounds like I'll need to go to one of the custom shops for what I'm searching for and I'm a little too "frugal" for that - at least without touching some samples first! I currently wear an issue G-1 when I feel like leather but after wearing armored fabric jackets for years putting on an unarmored jacket feels about like riding in a T-shirt.
