I dunno about them hems, They just do what it takes to make me look good.

I think it looks OK right now but will get better as you wear it in, and it drapes and molds to your body. Throw on a v-neck tee shirt, and beat the jacket up, I think you'll get plenty of compliments on it in real life.

The DR breaks in really quickly for me because of all the women coming up to me and touching the leather. Then i let them compare the leather on my jacket to that of my....

C'mon y'all.

Most people don't post fits in this thread because it's apparently very difficult to find someone to take a picture for them.

I think the fit is fine, jeans and a white t-shirt is all you need to rock a leather jacket. A leather jacket imo is suppose to be effortless swag.

I just think the Moto would have worked really well with that particular aesthetic and body type. Drew has mentioned before that Moto jackets tend to work better for people with a bigger build, which I agree. And that DR's tend to look better for people who are more slender. There are exceptions to every rule and in this case, this is not an exception.

I don't think that's bashing you in anyway. Some looks work for certain people and some looks don't. That's just the reality. For example, I can never rock a flannel and I don't buy any flannels because of that revelation.

That's the beautiful part of the internet, every one can act how they please.  If one posts, you best have thick skin otherwise you will end up getting ate alive.

It was fresh out of the packaging, how ever when it's 90 degrees outside I rather not wear it.  Awkward poses for camera never look good, definitely need to be more relaxed.

I just put on a shirt I had here at work, pretty sure that was the first crew neck I've worn in months shog[1].gif.  I can see how it will end up fitting better with the right clothes and after wearing in.

 

After looking at the Moto again, I probably should have gone that route.  Maybe a Brown one should be in order before it's too late!

I'm not sure why this thread should be immune from giving honest truths about a particular fit, especially when the intention was never to bash the original person.

If this was a denim thread and someone posted a fit, typical remarks would be:

1. Those jeans look too tight on you

2. You need a hem.

3. That looks too big, you should sell and size down.

4. The cut doesn't work, your thighs are too large. Get a more straight cut.

Why should this thread be any different? In real life, a lot of people are unwilling to give the person the honest truth. The beauty of the Internet for better or for worse is that you get honest opinions.

Totally agree with this statement, basically if you're not a supermodel with a perfect sense of style that suits this forum then expect to be taken down a notch or two. I guess it's the hope that you post willingly and actually want constructive feedback. Unfortunately people suck at that(aka 'you're bad but here's what you could do to make this work' etc.).

Even if you are a supermodel with a perfect sense of style, people will still try to put their two cents in. Some comments are constructive, but others are just opinions. I hate faded jeans but I'm not going to go around trying to tell people to stop wearing them.

snowboarder's fit looks really good to me. am i the only one who thinks that?
post #32983 of 40635
I think it looks good. I didn't mean to start an extensive analysis of his outfit as followed, just giving friendly advice to not have the zipper so high...
post #32984 of 40635

For how much longer is TOJ taking orders? I'd really like to get a fitted TOJ0 13

post #32985 of 40635
No one knows exactly, not long at all. Just order it. You can alter measurements later.
