We're 95% on the same page here except I also like "cognac" and "wine". Basically browns that aren't flat and age by becoming more complex by integrating various hues. As to the OP well it depends on the stuff you'll wear it with, I'd generally say that if you're only going to have one leather jacket black is the best choice but then I only own black and white leather jackets.

In the leather jacket thread someone just compared that awful RL leather to Batman's outfit. Seems like a surprisingly good comparison. It does have a certain super hero like quality.

I think we're 100% if you re-read my post pimpin. Was also going to recommend burgundy as a substitute for plain horrid brown.

I love brown and black together. It is very YSL circa early 70s.

I'm with Fuuma and jet. I don't really like the ubiquitous "off duty cop" brown, but prefer unusual browns like Port, Cognac, whiskey, etc... and also greys. I will wear black, but prefer it to look a little washed out and busted up, or be, again, an unusual shade like a blue-black. FWIW, I sometimes allow these types of threads to stand if I think that they might stimulate conversation and discussions. I will delete threads that ask "Which of these 2 sneakers", especially when they are both ugly Steve Madden Aldo love children, or "Which slim jeans?"

Did this guy have different vehicles that were also kind of insectile? I'm about 90% sure I remember some earlier iteration of this from my childhood.

Kamen Rider aired briefly on Fox Kids but it airs in Japan to this day, with different themes for each season. The one that aired on Fox Kids did have an insect theme.

for jackets I prefer the rich chocolate browns and have a moto in that color.

edit: you may be able to wear beige leather with your coloring, but I just can't do that. : /

pics are better than words for this type of debate, so . . .

here is a good brown:

here is a bad brown:

I think the type also plays a role in the color. Like for me, a moto/dr would look best in black or some unusual colorways (red, navy, etc..) while bombers looks better in brown (along with different shades of it).

As Paul Fussel wrote: "Only six things can be made of black leather without causing class damage to the owner: belts, shoes, handbags, gloves, camera cases, and dog leashes."
