Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 712

Ah nice... missed that one since he posted it in classic menswear.

 

And that Burberry jacket is one of the most FOB things I've ever seen. Funny thing is that I have a Japanese friend who above all else wants to make sure that he avoids FOB brands ("like Hollister"). But I can't manage to convince him that his favorite brands Burberry and Armani Exchange are about as FOB as you can get, and that the True Religion jeans he likes so much look ridiculous.

How do StyleForum.net members like their leather jackets to age?  We purchase heavier leathers, such as Horween Chromexcel Leather and Vanson's Comp. Weight Leather so that our jackets age like 1950s originals. 

 

Here is a good example of the look we like to see from a rack of our vintage leather jackets...Both Aero and Vanson jackets develop this patina with time and wear...we like nothing more than to meet one of our customers who purchased a jacket from us 10 years ago...without doubt, his jacket is looking absolutely amazing! 

 

Heavy leather is a lot like heavyweight denim...time and wear is what make it amazing!  Each piece becomes a "custom" reflection of it's wearer's life...

Thanks for the tip!

 

Heavyweight leather gives a look like this, but in leather!

 

Worn to perfection!

In quoting images.  Not trying to be a dick, but by not providing context, you came off as one :/

You always show up and it seems like you are trying to stir something up, so not trying to be is being one as well.

Why don't you contribute something to the forum rather than post random critique.

Worn-in denim looks pretty good, but those jackets look ready for Goodwill IMO.

I don't really think that's true.  I try to contribute as often as possible.  I just tried to clarify what you meant to Thurston Bros.  You're evaluating my posting style on a sample size of one.

 

I posted a while back about how I don't post fits often because in the past they've been awful/rightfully shit on.  The general (appropriate) consensus is and has always been to lurk as necessary and post as necessary, and I'm not going to go clog up the WAYWT thread with fits that I don't think are on point.  My closet doesn't house the most exuberant/exciting wardrobe in the world, and I don't have the money to expand it right now.  When I get disposable income, it pretty much goes toward style stuff.  Sure, you could say "not all fashion stuff is that expensive" and that's true, but I'd rather save for what I really want then buy all stop-gaps along the way.

 

As I become more confidant in how I look in terms of changing my aesthetic toward where I want it to be, and as my collection of stuff to wear grows and becomes more reflective of that aesthetic, then I will post in WAYWT (and elsewhere) more.

 

This is a beating-around-the-bush way of saying that I do exactly what most SFers consider to be the gold standard for newcomers: build a good wardrobe, try to dress well, try to contribute to the discussion when appropriate.  Back to the last post, I thought it was worthwhile.  Thurston Bros might not have known what you were talking about specifically.  I apologize for my backhanded hostility, I hope you can find it in yourself to reevaluate your opinion of me somewhere down the road.

mer this is not the first time you quote me and say something provocative so my opinion is based on that, change your ways and my opinion will change as well.

I don't think that those types of jackets are what most SW&D users go for on here. 

 

SW&D users mostly go for slimmer fitting jackets with more of a taper from the chest to midsection and slimmer arms with higher armholes. 

 


TOJ is so popular on here because they're providing these classic styles with updated fits, which very few companies wish to do.
