Yeah I was actually kinda worried it might look like that in a way but the color is actually more subtle, it's almost like a cherry red, where its more like a darker toned red. It feels really I definitely feel it being smoother and more pliable than both the dark whiskey and bottle green. I think I might need to get the sleeves tailored a bit in some areas where the quilting is at it kinda pushes up and it feels like I have fabric kinda hanging in a way mostly on my forearm/wrist area. Even zipped up there like a full 3/4 or inch of leather. I don't want it super tight it definitely feels like an air pocket almost.

QDR is so good.  Really creates a nice body shape/V shape.

Do you guys think quilting on shoulders could spread ones V-shape if he is naturally shaped more like a box?

to be honest it could but it also would have to fitted well because while it might give the wider shoulder appearance If its too long it could make it look a little off. I mean for me I almost wished I would've gone maybe an inch shorter so that jacket was more cropped because I'm 5'8" but it still looks good and feels really nice as well.

that's because of the camera angle, a direct front shot would be better

Really fits you well man, good job.  Camera angle still angled downwards though.  I can sorta see what you're saying in terms of length.

Just my opinion, but quilting around the traps/shoulders/delts = naturally more flattering for most (if you're going for the V-shape silhouette).  Also seems to make the shoulder/arm transition a lot smoother.

Arms look kind of loose don't they?
post #25631 of 40732
Yeah they are more so than my other two jackets, I'm going to take it to a tailor see if maybe they can take it in a little bit, I think it's really more of the quilting that kinda pushes the leather differently but it's not a huge issue.
post #25632 of 40732
The arms looks fine. It is a jacket, not a dress shirt. I would leave them.

Handling TOJ lamb is like handling your own dick. It's a familiar feeling, soft, supple and typically arousing.
