Himel Brothers for Self Edge – Heron Horsehide Jacket

We stumbled across Himel Brothers a while back and were immediately impressed with their Toronto made, repro leather jackets. Here they step into collaboration territory with Self Edge, a match that definitely gets our seal of approval. The Heron is packed full of amazing detail. The style is based on the A-1 (predecessor to the A-2 and one of the most beautiful pre-zipper models) as well as civilian/motorcycle jackets from the 20s/30s. Deadstock melamine buttons, WW2 Marine Camo lining, Vegetable Tanned Horsehide, stenciled spec numbers…the list continues. This Shawl collar gem is currently available in very limited numbers online. Grab one here.
