There've been a few other designs that caught my attention (Panther, Cougar, variations on the Roadmaster, really), but I think Belstaff prices have gone up at least 50% since I posted that and I'm still a student, so I'll just go with a Knight of Infinite Resignation.
The Roadmaster is basically the Trialmaster without the tilted pocket, so you have options there. There are a number of decent knock-offs on the market, and best of all, you can get a real vintage Trialmaster on ebay for $200 or so with a little persistence. The 70's versions are longer and have the striaght pocket like the Roadmaster. Also, you can get a brand new current version Trialmaster, the actual motorcycle version, not the fashion version:http://www.bel-store.co.uk/classictouristtrophyman.html
