Yeah, that's a major 'meh'. You're better than that.

I have thus far withheld the purchase... Just wanted some outside input (oxymoron?).

purple if you have to get one of those since the other option looks like something a trashy kpop dude would wear

also hope you have some cuban heeled boots!

http://www.jafrum.com/Motorcycle-Gea...Pa38Ta38Lbxb0# What about that one? I actually think it's pretty damn cool. I really like the idea of a denim motorcycle jacket, mostly because i really dig the style but don't want leather (I'm attempting to live a more animal-friendly lifestyle) or to downgrade to faux leather. You guys got any better recs?

Get it if you actually ride, otherwise don't; I'm saying this because it is armored.

Even though the armor is removable? Again, sorry for the questions but this is sort of an odd/unconventional peice thati'm looking for. (I saw the MJ peice and I'm not that into the speckled black color)

Yikes a $45 motorcycle jacket?! I wouldnt want to be caught in an accident with that on. Thing would probably explode. Also if you were wearing it casually without the armor its probably gonna fit like dick and or come off making you look like a tool.

I think anything that takes a purpose-styled item like riding gear and changes the material or primary elements of it (leather) without reinterpreting it is a major fail from a fashion point of view. 'Gear' (cold-weather, sailing, riding, horsey-stuff) as opposed to everyday garments are purpose-driven first, stylish second. That jacket is a travesty of design, taste, and defeats any statement of purpose. That said, if it's armored, it's a no-go, though armor is always removable. True riding gear is cut differently for armor and riding position (though that jacket doesn't look it). Plus, denim is like tissue paper under crash-abrasion conditions, so that makes the jacket even more ghey, as any real rider knows this point.

I said my piece about them glasses. You're gonna look washed-out. You're also dancing a fine line between Boy George and The Sisters of Mercy with those two styles... #2. Seek other options and leave the TV mactoress personalities to do their own queenie thing...
