Recently been considering switching from single to double needle diamond on my diesel blue bcdr order, anyone feel like convincing me one way or the other?

yeah, but this was a two hour domestic flight on a small shitty plane (2+3 in coach) so being in the six rows of first class seats was great.

does anyone have good fit pics of the new Double Rider jacket, haven't seen any posted on the TOJ gallery website yet, looking to either purchase a TOJ biker piece or a Schott Perfecto biker jacket, not sure which one to get yet, any opinions?

Just discovered that my brown goat bomber has a lot of dark stains caused by various alcoholic beverages. Anyone know a good way to remove or reduce the appearance of them?

I'd like to see a fit of the sample but it's pretty easy to imagine. It's similar to the 2.3 in the gallery. I'm curious as to how the lapels look relative to the other styles and the previous DR though.

exactly, i just wanna see how the lapel looks and if the positioning of the button pocket looks good on the left side cause it bothers me a little bit that it's there

post #30416 of 44318

Pocket positioning is pretty standard, no?

post #30417 of 44318
Yes, it is. See anything from a repro jacket to a Rick Stooges.

Yeah hopefully in two weeks I can post pic of my new burgundy double rider. I tried on some jackets at Schott in NYC and they're actually quite nice. The quality is good, but it's just different from TOJ. TOJ is more luxe and the cut is more fashionable.
post #30419 of 44318
I dunno man, that's basically how the pattern is cut, regardless of the Twerkjacket in question. Both moto and DR kick back a bit when unzipped, which creates that "A" shape when seen front on and keeps the jacket from flapping open (as, for example, the bball is wont to do). I'm pretty sure that Drew has mentioned this before, and that it's intentional.

Pretty sure both my BCDR and CM kick back when unzipped. If you think about it, wearing a jacket that doesn't have a banded hem means that the zippers are going to separate. This happens less at the chest because the shoulders and arms hold the jacket in place and more so at the bottom because there's nothing holding it in place. This means that the bottom of the jacket has to go either out to the sides - which doesn't really happen - or kick back and/or forward. I don't think I've ever seen a jacket that kicks forward more than it kicks back, and while it may be theoretically possible, the weight in the front from the zippers and pockets as well as the downward force from the shoulders will make it kick back more so than forward.

This will be less pronounced on a jacket with a ribbed hem because the ribbing is just going from stretched to relaxed, changing the circumference of the hem of the jacket. The appearance will also lessen over time even on a rider-style jacket as the leather breaks in, starts to mold to your body, and "drapes" better. I supposed it's also possible to get a jacket that's so narrow at the hem that it minimizes the effect, but you literally wouldn't be able to zip it so you could only wear it open.
