Hi guys! Dropping in to ask a Q which was already discussed but I still am not able to reach a decision.
Looking for a recommendation on which Vanson leather to buy.
I’m not a biker (per se). I ride a Gilera Nexus scooter. Don’t know whether you are familiar with that particular two wheeler. It’s a sporty scooter, fast and agile enough to need some proper gear. I ride mostly in the city (700 thousand population); short daily commute to work; year-round (have a legs cover for it). On weekends I do max 150 km trips outside the city.
I’m mostly in a suit during the week. On weekends I ride in jeans and have a (Bally) leather jacket (obviously not proper gear) and a Belstaff Roadmaster (which is great over the suit but not suitable enough for winter and faster rides outside the city).
So, after reading up I decided on Vanson. I need something with armored (removable), black, slim, slick, least patches possible, very warm (removable liner?) that I can use during the week (suit jacket taken off) and outside-of the-city rides, which still doesn’t look out of place if worn in a bar or similar (if needed).
Since there are no dealers here I would be ordering on-line so size is also an issue. I’m a 42L in suits. My Belstaf is an XL (purposely a little bit bigger to fit over a suit). Which size am I looking at in Vanson? I’m mostly worried about length.
Btw great bikes here and a great discussion. Looking forward to participating. Thanks in advance for all recommendations.
Have you considered Schott? Their online/phone help is top-notch. They'll get you into the right fit even if it takes shipping a few jackets back and forth.
