slim leather jackets - Page 2

post #16 of 20
I don't think J Lindeberg is very highly regarded here but he has some offerings that pop up on ebay from time to time and I find they go at significantly below retail; they are fitted as well.

I also own a couple of leathers from Compagnia; there an italian brand and they seem to fit nice. Maybe check them out.

Leather is not on pair with Schott or Vanson but I find them sort of overkill for a night on the town just loafin.

I have a Prada leather jacket that I absolutely love. It's sort of a modified m65 with hidden pockets (2 chest pockets only) and is cut slim. The leather is just unbelievably soft to touch

Belstaff jackets have the look you're looking for however their more design oriented / less utiliatarian jackets are a bit hard to come by in the States. Even though they've been making motorcycle gear since before the second World War, they've successfully marketed themselves to the more fashion oriented scene and seem to have become quite popular with the Brad Pitt wannabes of Europe and LA. I still wouldn't mind owning one.

I've tried a few, but I can't pull off jackets that slim. I always end up looking like David Brent.
It's unfortunate how often I see a guy in a "Fight Club" jacket who obviously thinks he looks like Tyler Durden, but actually looks far more like the above. It's scared me away from 70s-styled leather jackets.

You're right, I forgot all about that line. I hope they still make those in Mass., there's something to be said for American made leather.
