How to Order
We appreciate you considering Good Wear Leather as a source for vintage leather jacket reproductions. Our hope is that our process of ordering
a jacket will be both easy and fun, and that you'll want to buy more jackets from us over time. Our greatest strength in getting
this right will be communication. We've provided some information below and by talking with you, we should be able to start and
complete an order of a jacket that you'll enjoy. Vickie Erlandsen has been hired as sales director, and will communicate with you
about orders and jacket details.
Once you've gone through the selection of jackets we have, we would like to talk with you about the fit you prefer. Each contract
is slightly different in how it fits, and different body types will have a better experience with certain patterns. Just the same,
we are able to adjust any pattern to fit well.
We'll note what jacket you want, and then we can determine the details. Rather than offering only stock jacket designs, we are
flexible and willing to alter our standard patterns to reflect design differences seen historically within a contract.
Leather choice is important, and the price will be affected as our cowhide costs less than goatskin or horsehide. If a zipper is
provided by the customer, a discount will be applied to the price of the jacket of $30. In some cases, we are willing to create
details like lining pockets or apply patches, but jackets with this type of work are non-returnable.

Vintage WWII Zippers
We have been able to find a small number of original WWII zippers that are
in usable condition—this is a good and rare thing.
• Talon Zippers: $120.00 each.
• Conmar Zippers: $150.00 each.
• Crown Zippers (sorry - no longer available).
Reproduction zippers, which are standared if a WWII zipper is not
chosen, are free with each jacket.
Shipping with the Continental U.S.:
$30.00 USD—parcels will ship via USPS Priority Mail with insurance and delivery confirmation.
Shipping to nations and states outside of the Continental U.S.:
$60.00 USD—parcels will be shipped via Express Mail, which will have a tracking number
and insurance for the total cost of the jacket.
The total cost of a jacket will be the leather choice, zipper choice (if other than
a reproduction zipper), and shipping. Only residents of Washington State will have a tax
applied. (Tax rate is location-based and is determined by shipping address.)
We're able to take major credit cards, checks, money orders (international as well) and PayPal.

We ask that customers place a deposit on all orders. Due to the long wait time, we ask for a $200.00 deposit up-front with the
remaining balance due upon completion. (Sorry, we are not set up to accept payments during the waiting period).
Please contact us to find out more.
Right now, we're running around 12-15 months for delivery after deposit payment is received. This may seem like a very long wait, but
we only have one operator making the jackets, and high quality is far more important than speed. Suppliers we have for horsehide
and goatskin often take unknown amounts of time to produce what we need, so we ask for your patience. We want you to be
We will be able to take returns only on jackets that were made incorrectly. Since each of our jackets are of a custom nature,
it's important that the customer know what they want before a jacket is made. We will make every effort to ensure we know what
to make before starting a jacket, and this should match what a customer wants.
If there is an inaccuracy in the jacket received,
please contact us for a Return Authorization Number, and a new jacket or refund will be available. The RAN must be requested
within 5 days of receiving the jacket, and the jacket returned within 5 days of having the RAN. Our concern is that each customer
be happy with what they have, and we also must cover our business model.
Any jackets that are worn, have signs of use, or have been altered after a customer has received it, and other such alterations
will negate the ability to return a jacket. Only jackets in new condition will be approved for return.

our leather increases, our prices will reflect this difference, but we will strive to keep stability in pricing to the best of
