I still prefer the biker jackets, guess i just have a thing for that stuff lol. Though havent the rag and bone one worn yet, but i dont like them 2 soft.

I dont like yours Dsquared because i dont like jackets with 2 much pockets and stitching lines in them. I think the less there are the better, for me.

Berlin thanks for the pics man. Both look great on you. The Schotts looking pretty good too. I agree the vanson is better though. The collar thingie too is better on the vanson on the jackets without collars, which is why i initially posted the collared one from Schott.

Whats your chest size if u dont mind me asking (im about 42-43 in., what size would you recommend for a tight fit for either jacket?)

Thx again

I tried on the Junya X Vanson biker jacket and that thing was incredibly stiff, I couldn't even move my arms upward. I don't know how you people who buy real motorcycle jackets do it.

You got to spend a lot of time in front of a mirror flexing your biceps and admiring how tough you look, that breaks em in

Another option for real racer jackets:

This is the brand I went with, and I don't think the quality can be beat.

Yeah, Aero is in a class by itself. The price is steeper, though, no?

Agreed. Aero is definitely where I would go looking if I wanted a classic biker jacket.

A 42 in the Comet will likely be out of the question, but even the 44 will be tight at first. I'm a true 41 and I'm really glad I went with the 44 and had it altered. If you're 43+, you may even consider trying on a 46!

Have you considered having Vanson custom make the jacket for you? I believe they could do a custom comet or a variation on it... I haven't fully investigated it yet though.

I lucked out and got a good deal on ebay, but yes, they are pricey these days due to the dollar being so low.
post #28 of 48
Berlin, could you post some of your measurements? I'm thinking about buying that Vanson and it looks like a perfect fit on you and I think I'm about your size (5'7, 37" chest, 31" waist, 140 lbs)

thanks.

Who made it is somewhat irrelevant, quality of Theory garments are quite high, the design [of this jacket] is superb – $900 for that quality and cut is kind of a deal, IMO. It could probably be found for cheaper during the sales. The CCP one is nice, but that's not a motorcycle jacket, at all.

dont know if it helps, but i just took my 20 year old vanson out of storage-and have to say it weighs a tooooooooooooooooooooooon. Now if you dont mind that it is a quality product all the way. I intend to be wearing it all winter!!! Much to chagrin of my wife and kids.

I like the schott too. They are both made in the usa and i blieve both still family owned!
