Vanson Chopper Jacket

(( EDIT: we sold this lovely jacket on Mar 11. But we have another Vanson Highwayman jacket in a 48 TALL! )) The folks at Vanson, a company famous for racing leathers and making jackets only out of very very vigorously healthy cows, have outdone themselves with this one. This …
