leather jackets

any leather stores around? looking for a leather rideing jacket for me and my cruiser.

i already checked HD, and DGY and some bike shop in naperville off of Ogden. anyone know of any one else? Im on the south side of chicago.

im a medium to large type of guy, i fall into the 5'8 155lbs bracket.

checked out wilsons in foxvalley they didnt have anything and DID you know that wilson is doing a MAJOR downsizing. so if you want some kinda leather for the wife or kids or bags gloves blah blah they are like all 75-80% off.

Is anyone a Vanson dealer? I still have my leather motorcycle jacket that I bought for myself fifteen years ago. Wonderful jacket, built for riding, but nice enough to wear with a tie. I ordered it outright in 1993. Still make the same jacket yet too.

I tried on a bunch of brands and took notes of my size. I came home and bought one on Ebay for half the price. Another option is www.newenough.com that's where my helmet came from. It was $170 at the bike shop I got it for $90 shipped. ~Mandy
