To credit the TOJ guys, when I measure it, it is awful close to 5.9". What I cannot figure out is why it is so different than the J. Crew jacket (5.8" cuff). They look the same to my eye, but fit very differently. Either I am just a retard (likely) or I am missing something.
Haha, I knew this would pop up. It's not truly a 54, but it would be the closest stock size and the cuffs are the same. I intended to order the jacket a bit large as I am still gaining my weight back, but to answer your question, it is around 42-43" at the moment. The way I figured, it was better to order too big than too small.
Olive Calfskin Collared Moto From the above picture, I think it looks fine, but I must admit the sleeve opening (at cuff) seems a bit large (if anyone cares it was set at 5.9" or standard for size 54). Here is my best afixedpoint impression:
I'll post pictures later, but I will say for now that the sleeve opening seems kind of large, but (in my opinion) not obnoxiously so. Kind of like what afixedpoint posted earlier. It looks OK, it just kind of seems to defeat the purpose of having the zippers there. The CM is really awesome in person though.
You aren't too far off from me (6' 4", 205 lbs). You can't really go wrong with either one. I would pick whichever you like best. As for color, my first choice would be a light whiskey. It looks excellent with silver zips on light haired people. After that I think either bottle green or black. Green tends to look good on blond people and black is kind of the "standard". This is the lambskin whiskey, but the color is pretty similar: Whiskey Calf: Bottle...
As long as the belt is brown, you are fine. Although, beige might be pushing it, for me at least, but then again, I have not seen the belt. Some like to be very "matchy matchy" others dislike it, personal preference. As for pants, any shade of grey or navy would look fine with those shoes.
I am pretty sure I remember a dude having good luck with this. He used it in conjunction with some shoe polish to get a big scuff out of a jacket.Consensus is then: Lexol for lambskin, Obenaufs for calf? and what for goat?
It is probably more important what you wear with the jacket than the leather itself. I.e. a t-shirt vs a thermal.
If you are, what I will call "consistent", you should be OK. As ghdvfddzgzdzg describes, the DR looks good with more rugged shoes and the bomber is more versatile. I think the reason it looks particularly good on Willy is that he also has an OCBD shirt on, giving it a hair more formality, hence the "dressier" shoes. Desert boots would be another shoe choice that would probably work well.
I guess I will say this. There is nothing wrong with wearing a hat as you describe. However, I have never seen a single person wearing a baseball hat in any manner that I thought looked great or would not have looked better without said hat.
