Few jackets age like a Fine Creek Leathers jacket. That’s especially true of these new 1.3mm Shinki horsehide Erics. This slightly lighter weight leather has undergone a unique tanning process at the fabled Shinki Tannery of Himeji, Japan. The tanning imbues the leather with matte, smoky black hues with subtle hints of plum red in the right light. Over time, the leather’s surface pigments will chip and age to reveal the dusty, vintage browns beneath. Special in-house sewing techniques add to this ageing process, as varying sewing tensions help the hide to pucker and pebble in unique ways. Fine Creek Leathers’ Eric style is slick, minimal, and modern – no bells and whistles, just a clean jacket that will age beautifully.
