Which Belstaff jacket?

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
J.Crew has two different Belstaff jackets available right now and I'm planning on picking one up. I've always wanted a leather Belstaff. Both jackets are similar but slightly different styles. The Brad jacket is more of a motorcycle jacket and is shorter cut. The panther looks more like a classic Belstaff jacket and is a bit longer.

Which jacket would be more versatile? I'm looking for something that I can wear on a day to day basis in the city. When I goto work, I dress business casual with cotton dress pants and an OCBD. On the weekend, I'm usually wearing dark jens (APC) and either a tshirt or an OCBD. Which style of jacket would go better with this kind of look?

I'd say go with the Brad jacket. Looks more BA to me.

I'd suggest the Panther (classic cut) and wear it with everything but black. You ride bikes right? If that's the case, it's a bit flashy (until it gets some wear on it) but justified. Plus, you'll be the baddest motherfucker on Robson St.

I like them both, but will say the Panther is tough to pull off if you're a smaller guy.

They're both for wankers.

A leather Belstaff is an oxymoron, designed by an Italian company who are pimping the heritage of a great brand. If you want to go flash, look out something like the Sammy Miller limited editions. A reworked leather Belstaff is like a pair of velvet Levi's; it's just not right.

Not fond of either. Look at something else.

Was wondering about the Panther since I'm only 5'9 with pretty short legs. The brad might be better for that.

I also like this Cougar model quite a bit.

That cougar model looks amazing

I'd go with the one that looks like you didn't just put a leather jacket in a washing machine.

The Brad gets more utilization. The Panther is a bit more of an oddity in normal day to day wear.

anyone know about the sizing in the belstaff brad? I tried on the panther and I am medium,... would i be the same in the Brad cut?

No experience with the Panther, but the Brad fits quite a bit smaller than the Roadmaster.
Enough to size up.

Hmm the roadmaster looks pretty similar to the panther... So u suppoe I should size up?

Def size up on both compared to the Roadmaster, which is a size up from the Che Guevera model, and possibly other Trialmaster models. When I was in NYC I tried on a bunch of them. Could just fit in a small Che Guevera but would have needed a medium, was a solid large in the Roadmaster and the Panther in a large was well too small, couldn't find a XL to try on but that would have done it.
