Nope, that CWU-45 is sizes to big for me. I'm sure one will be mine in the future though. Drew killed it with the new models and it's impossible to pick just 1.

I want one in black or grey, would sell one of my jackets to fund it too
post #6935 of 40746
Thinking of getting 2 pieces of these 3 leathers but not sure which too choose. Given that they are both different colorways and I like them, I'm unsure if having 2 leathers is a waste of money or not. Might not have time to break 2 leather cycles in. Any thoughts? I know some people have like at least 5 TOJ pieces :S My outfit is like clarks DB, gitman shirts and APC petit standard denim (indigo and black) .. But will be getting some leather boots from Buttero later on.

CWU-45 in grey is sex. I have the old bomber in grey lamb and it's one of the best jacket that I own. When the CWU-45 was introduced, I was so tempted to get in grey once more, but I just can't justify myself having 2 grey leathers in a similar style.

Sounds like the bomber suits your style the most (without seeing any pics), but any of them are good really. If you're getting them in lamb, then theres not really a break in period. Just wear and go I'm wearing my MDR 3-4 times a week at the moment and i'll be getting a bomber soon - 2 leathers seems fine to me hah

Well, the 2010DR is definitely the hardest to wear, followed by the MDR, and then the bomber. I agree with the poster above in saying that it would seem as though a bomber would suit your style best.

What you mean by hardest to wear ? Hardest to match or ? Or did you mean hard to wear in only if it's calf ?

IMO the 2010DR isn't as hard to wear as people seem to think, just look at all the ways synth and aeglus and the others have done theirs. But who knows, maybe I'm wrong, I don't have one. Give it a week.

IMO in terms of easiest to wear to hardest Bomber variety Collared moto 2010/2011 moto Minimalist DR 2010 DR BCDR DR vest I like the DRs as a piece but most of the times that I see them worn I can't help get a feeling that it's like playing 'dress up' biker gang. People either don't look comfortable in them or it just looks out of place. Only ones I have seen that really impressed me are when it's on impolyt, synthese, youngwan91, and that skinny guy that impolyt uses to model the jackets where they never look like they are trying to look like they are apart of a vintage motorcycle gang. I think u just needs a certain level of swag for it lol

Just from what I've seen in Recent Purchases and a few WAYWTs, neither seems like it fits your style that well. Of the two, the grey CWU-45 makes more sense (slimmed down for fashunz as Drew suggested), but a minimal DR even better. Unless you already have that. Can't remember.

Thread Starter 
Easiest/hardest to wear depends on your a) build b) shoulder/neck/face width c) accompanying wardrobe To me, if there was a 'one' jacket that everybody could wear, considering the above, it'd be the 4-pocket Moto, or the CWU-45 actually. Both in black lamb. I personally can't wear the DR and feel comfortable in it. My face is too wide for it and the neckline goes low, so it looks like I've got a bobbly head on a spear of neck flesh, not a good look for me. If I was as fucking handsome as jakekrait or Synthese, then maybe. I've been feeling really swaggy in the black CWU-45. It's not super tightly fitted, it's light and effortless, has tons of details and textures, goes well with a white tee or a white BD shirt.

I may be getting two jackets as well. Dead set on getting a DR in black calf, but am still undecided on whether or not the zippers should be gunmetal or black. What would you guys recommend?

How's your bomber holding up? My grey moto now has a noticeable brownish tint to it. I don't particularly dislike it, but I do kind of miss the hue it had. Maybe some leather conditioner would help.
