I am beyond excited to share with you our First collaboration piece from Y2 Leather our of Japan
We took their classic Western shirt using water-dyed steer oil and used our own combination dyed Vintage Pony
The Combination dying process leaves the brown core of the hide to be able to come through the lustrous black coating over time as it ages.
At first the 1-1.2mm thick hide is fairly stiff but quickly takes shape and will turn into a piece that you will absolutely love for years to come.
Testing my own personal western I've worn it on and off the bike, in the pouring rain and even in the snow..
I was surprised at how well this piece kept me dry.. and I have been blown away by how well this is not only worn as a shirt , but a light jacket that I've been layering all winter.
These fit on the snug side so please read the sizing chart and ask questions if you have any
I personally measure 39." around the chest , and usually wear a size 40
I wear a Size Large Ironheart UHF,
Medium in most North American sized tops and Large in those made in Japan ..
and I wear a Size 42 in this shirt,
I had a buddy of mine come in today who measures 45" snug and 46 comfortably , Wears an XXL in an Ironheart UHF , XL in North American shirts like Dehen , XXL in Japanese, and he wears a 48 in these.
In general most people seem to go one size up from what they measure.
If you're a 42 chest order a 44 ect , as they seem to fit about one full size small.
