But my doctor warns me that the padding that felt so good for so long will ultimately give me arthritis or even a hunched back. I started experimenting with unstructured jackets instead, and though there's more pain in the short term, I feel safe knowing I'm saving my shoulders from a darker future.

 

Spalla camicia? It's the only way to go...

I still do too, despite everyone else telling me now. Those colors are just so crazy beautiful, never seen anything like it. Fit looks off though...And could I wear it with black?

"all" isn't really a viable option.

1st or 3rd, depends on if you're gonna wear it in a SW&D or MC way (1st=MCish, 3rd=SW&D imo)

Switching from traditional heavily padded running shoes to frees fixed a lot of problems with my running form.  Anecdotal, I know.

yeah it is not cheap...why do you think it is a novelty? It seems like a staple. I could wear it 2x per week.

I was underwhelmed by the Lanvin bomber I had from last season. It was nice, but not full-retail nice. And made in Romania.

Lanvin bomber is not ok at all. Looks like some technical hybrid scuba shit with ugly zippers and seams detailing. The stupid clavicle seam thing also makes it look like there's a hood.

just my wearing behavior, really...probably wouldn't be a go-to for me the way it'd need to be at retail

aside from the clavicle seam comment, the rest of that is ridiculous.

I can see your comment about the clavicle seam, but I like it--nice differentiator with the glut of basically identical bomber jackets out now. material on that is great as well.

I'm not a fan.  Especially that color.

I spend way more than $130 to look good at things I spend less time at than the gym.
