It's pretty stiff and does not drape much yet, especially compared to the lamb. I'm wondering if it will look better after some break-in, although that wouldn't help the length. I've only worn it around the house so far.

The pics where I'm facing away show the jacket's color the best, I tried to capture the color well in natural light. Try to ignore my terrible hair and jeans looking weird.

i am awaiting the same moto in black, if it looks as good as yours i'll be happy

My friend actually said it was funny as well.
proper on the top but....

Reminds me of a situation I just faced recently - when I am in Korea working I usually find myself kinda drunk in the evenings and heading back to wherever I'm staying. I usually bump into homeless people and since it's late and I'm usually the only one on the street so they often accost me or try to at least say something to me, but I can't hear them. I offer to buy them some sort of food and especially in the winter, because you can get some hot soup and rice in Korea for like $2-3, $4, and it drops to pretty bitter cold temperatures. I've offered tons of times by now but not a single one of them has taken me up on it, to date. Many of them point at my clothes or my watches and try to get me to give them to them. I'm like, uh, no. I'd give clothes off my back to people, but I only have two outfits nowadays - MMM leather and white tee, jeans, or a full on suit and tie. So the concept of giving these people my MMM leather, I'm like, what does this homeless guy need with a 13 year old irreplacable leather jacket? It's not like he has the wardrobe to support it, lol. The above fit pic kinda conceptualizes what I see in my head when I envision these homeless people wearing my jawns. lol. You gotta step up that footwear game man. Don't cuff those jeans either, looks awkward.

on a similar budget? just some black monochrome chucks and rolling down the pants hems normally would be better looking for that fit.

also, shirt tucked in under the sweater. Top of the sweater and the loose shirttails clash. That was cute on girls back around Clueless but I advise against it now.

nonono. it was about those homeless people.
post #24160 of 42232

in my experience, the homeless people in korea are far less aggressive than homeless people that i've encountered in the us or japan (surprisingly).  i also dont look korean, so that might be a part of it.  regular drunk ahjussis  (of the non-homeless kind) are a different story, though.

peacoats!

going to order one in navy/black details...does this color look good in real life in most people's opinions? or should I stick with black

Maybe I am biased but like abracadabra said Korean homeless people seem less crazy and loud as the Americans I see here. But then when I look into their eyes I can almost drown in the sadness.. musicboohoo[1].gif Most of them are (ex) husbands and fathers who got laid off from their job

A nice way to cheer yourself up is to remember that one day they will soon die and the sadness they bear will be lost as the record of their memories dies with them and the spirit which experienced the life they lead will move on to its next destination which is to live the lives of millions of different lower life forms like animals and insects where existence is nothing but confusion and hunger because an MA-1 with moto cuffs and hem wouldn't really work the whole point of an MA-1 is that a soft cloudbody is given corporeal form by the ribbing which could almost be seen to mimic the fact that these jackets were worn by men traversing the clouds while suspended in soar by structured wings and hull.

i think your posts are usually pretty funny, but making fun of homeless people seems a little low, even for styleforum.
