Vintage Jacket Help

I have searched SO many places for the perfect jacket to no avail! Does Anyone know of a jacket that matches the following pre-reqs:

-No gaudy logos or designs
-CE Armor
-Vintage leather look
-Race stripes or not, doesn't matter
-Metal buttons, as in NO or minimal velcro
-Flap on the collar with metal button
-Enough vents to keep cool on hot days (preferably vents in front AND back)

Think Joe Rocket: Old School jacket but with armor...(damn you Joe Rocket) http://www.joerocket.com/catalog/ind...ts/Old_School_[cowhide]

Any ideas???

Re: Vintage Jacket Help

Dainese Vintage Pelle looks sick but doesn't have quite all the features you're looking for.

Re: Vintage Jacket Help

^^I like that jacket.. Id wear it off the bike just as a normal jacket. But, so far, its looking like I might not even need a jacket this winter. It was like 80 degrees today

Oh yeah, no gaudy logo's/designs, I'll have to edit the original post. Otherwise that jacket would be practically perfect

Re: Vintage Jacket Help

Vanson has some jackets like that. Dainese does too - that only have the small canid symbol rather than a big name on it. Triumph makes some jackets that fit the bill too.

The more I'm searching and NOT finding this type of jacket without the logos/brand name, the more I'm liking this Vintage Pelle one
