"As someone afflicted with the leather jacket collecting disease, I stumbled upon Cal-Leather by accident. I purchased a stunning vintage leather jacket that had no label. After a very lengthy investigation, I was able to identify the jacket as the iconic Cal-Leather LAPD jacket, they very same jacket worn by James Dean on the cover of Life Magazine. A few conversations with Cal-Leather and owner Gwen Cornell, confirmed my belief that Cal-Leather is exactly the kind of company I wanted to do business with. Within a very short time, my collection of Cal-Leather jackets has reached 22 with no sign of stopping. My recent purchase of a Six Panel Competition Cafe Racer has been one of my best decisions, and quickly become my favorite article of clothing, period. I simply do not want to take it off.
My interactions with the staff at Cal, and owners Gwen and Ira Cornell, have been exceptional. I don't feel like a customer, I feel like a member of the Cal family. In return for their incredible service and products, I have become an evangelist for Cal-Leather and volunteer my time and energy to help more customers enjoy the same amazing experience I've had. Cal-Leather is more than a company, it's a family, one I am proud to be a member of. I look forward to passing along each of my Cal jackets to future generations."
