Frankly this jacket only looks nice with the collar worn up buttoned. I am letting it cool off outdoors after going through the steamer but I doubt that helped the floppy collar. Just my 2 cents.
I like the fit and movement. Cool details like the lining and 2 button interior chest pockets. I hope it is versatile enough, nahneun shog[1].gif Sleeves a tad long

Is it too formal to tuck in a casual dress shirt? I just hate that look when it's untucked.

Nooby Question I know.

It's trendy to have your shirt untucked.

For a classic, timeless look that's flashy, finesse ridden, free-spirit... adventurous, flashy and blissfully sassy... a look that's all about the cloth, the leather, and the lifestyle..... always tuck in your casual shirts.

And lest I forget, if you tuck in your casual shirt, you will be made of money, and get the honeys.

that's honestly just as bad as any other dress code out there. maybe even worse since it's done under the guise of 'freedom'

i like t-shirts. anyone who doesn't will have to pry them from my cold dead clavicles.

The difference between the two is that in MC people spend 3.000$ on an outfit to look like 3.000$, in SW&D people spend 3.000$ to look like a post apocalyptic japanese junkyard worker. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Hello friends,

Drunk at time of posting, but I recently ordered Clark's Red Oaks from Amazon.com. They were expensive relative to most Clarks, $140~ or so. 2nd day wearing them and some random guy at a food truck asked me about them and where he could buy them. As soon as I got them I put obenauf's oil on them, which made them very dark. The red is only noticed now at the creases. It's very subtle. I'm happy with the purchase despite paying so much for Clarck's on Amazon.

*Not my own pic. After the oil mine are slightly more dark, but lighter int he creases, this pic was taken right out of the box*

I would rather look like a post-apocalyptic junkyard farmer than a guy who wears a suit every day. Why not dream big?

i find that classic menswear is a good escapism.. i love watching classic hollywood cinema, noir etc.. but doesnt mean i want to reenact them out of period context.

People on MC don't spend $3,000 on their outfit. The average MC poster is usually a budget shopper who spends a good amount of their money on clothes from Lands End, Brooks Brothers, and other non high end brands. If anything, MC is full of non-ballers wearing 'cheap' clothing but who are trying to look like they're 'ballers.' Most of the guys over there aren't 'wealthy' and don't spend much money on clothes, but they want to project an image where other people think they're important, rich, have class, are james bond, etc. The difference between MC and SWD is that the old dudes over in MC are obsessed with the image they're trying to convey and they're focused on using their clothes to tell the world, "oh look at me, I'm an important person because I wear a suit. I have class and am a proper gentleman." In reality, to me it usually screams "oh look at me, I'm a douche."

 

MC spending habits =

You're deluding yourself if you think there's a big difference. Here it's "oh look at me, I'm an interesting person because I wear an asymmetrical leather jacket. I am unique and not like all these plebs."

It's like that on both sides. Clothing is a discourse, and there's romance to be embraced on both sides, to an extent. There can be, at least.

Just looking at what a person wears probably won't tell you much about them, but learning why they wear it might.
