Not a perfect analogy - McDonalds always had it within their power to bring back the McRib.

Less blistered lamb, more parka talk. Unless of course you're gonna make a blistered lamb parka.

Actually, it's been back for about two weeks.

I actually did miss it!

I hope you'll consider more "experimental" leathers in the future, Drew!

are the sleeves stacking around your wrists? I guess lamb would do that if the sleeves are long enough. not a bad look, just surprising.

Sorry missed this question. They do stack some. Charly said I should get the sleeves a little longer. I guess so when your arms are bent the sleeves don't ride up?

Finally a member of the The Temple, and all praises due to the craftsmanship of this gorgeous jacket.

I went with a stock 47 because I knew from the measurements; a 46 would've been a tight squeeze. Unfortunately, I should've bought a 48.

Pics Below:





I'm able to move freely when unbuttoned, but when buttoned, there's movement restrictions. For ex: when I raise my arms, you get a peak of my belly button. Absolutely 0 room for layering under, just a tee like in the photos above, which sucks because I had planned on mastering the art of steeze this winter.

*sighs* The hunt continues...

It fits fine. Don't raise your arms.

i don't think a size up would look good
post #7329 of 8365
If anything, it's a bit big.

My experience with ToJ sizing and fit pics in a nutshell: "I can't raise my arms" / "I can't layer" "looks too big bro"

It should relax enough to throw a light knit in after a few wears

this project came about because a friend of mine has a Royal Enfield and came to the conclusion that there are no jackets on the market that provide adequate safety with a look that matches the bike... so he came to me and I think it can be done. It may take more than one try to get right but we'll see. The shell is gonna be 4oz horsehide, 1.6mm, the lining and pocket bags will be made from nylon mesh, and the rear shoulder gussets will have zips inside as well, so that all the zips can be left open for flow-through ventilation around the pits while keeping the jacket zipped closed and skid pads in place. The pads will have pockets secured with velcro for holding the pads in, to allow them to be removed quickly for casual wearing as well.

Good luck. Especially with leather meant to be worn year-round, I've found vent design to be an enormously fickle thing when it comes to motorcycle riding. I've returned more jackets for that reason than any other. Getting the proportions of protection and styling right while still retaining breathability is bloody hard. Definitely interested in the final result. Though I don't know if 4oz horsehide is going to be viable in sweltering Korean summers to begin with, so if you're only designing for 3 seasons it might be easier.
