RRL Leather aviator/motorcycle fit. Too short?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

i love the attitude of this jacket and the fact its fairly bold for what you see out in seattle. im not sure if its too short - it seems to meet what ive been told are the styles fit:  it sits along my hip bones and flares a bit when open. that being said, i havent a lot of experience with these types of jacket and wouldnt be surprised if its too snug. naturally, when my arms lift above my shoulders or i bend over it rides up a bit. this seems to tell me its too small but i cant imagine someone wearing this style of jacket and not facing these same issues. thoughts? should i get rid of it and get something more tradition to satisfy the 'brown leather jacket' slot in my wardrobe? i already have an aggressive schott per2 in black. ignore the clothes i have on with it - wasnt picking anything special, just concerned about size.

Let me ask you this.

How many leather jackets you have?

i have three, including this one, because i just parted ways with one of those ubiquitous PRL lambskin jackets in brown. i recently went vegan and have been dropping weight and that particular jacket was getting a little big. ones kinda thrashy and i basically only wear it out when im doing band/music stuff and the other is a pretty traditional black bomber from FC. kinda cheap, but i feel OK wearing it in the rain and such.

 

i've been looking for something brownish and this caught my eye. that answer your question? am i about to get flamed? i admit total noobage.

I don't know about others but.. I think it's kinda funny that vegan wearing leather jacket that is made out of animal's skin.

Anyway, jacket looks tight on your body.

i know, right? i do the mental gymnastics and tell myself i won't buy leather made AFTER the date i went vegan. so far, i'm cool. im into vintage stuff anyway.

 

point of clarification: looks tight as in looks too snug or looks tight in the colloquialisms of young-folk and it looks alright/good? isn't it suppose to be kinda snug?

What size is that and how tall/heavy are you?

Fits you as perfectly as it really could, but I find it kind of ugly. Might be better dyed to brown, I just don't really like the 'distressed within an inch of it's life' look.

hey sorry for the late reply. alerts were going to my spam folder.

 

anyway, im somewhat oddly proportioned. im 6 foot 2, 250 pounds, but only have a 32 inch inseam and a true- 37 inch waist (wear mostly 36s, they're always a little loose). i say 'only' because, while 36 is by no means small, most people in the 250 pound range are much more  'obese' looking (i think). nurses usually eyeball me at 210ish. this is both flattering and occasionally really, really painful, but that's another story. 

 

and the jacket was a gift, so i couldn't tell you where or how much. i'll try to remember to ask about where it came from.
