Any of the brands that you guys are discussing have removable armor? Looking for some more options in motorcycle jackets besides Belstaff. I have some nice RL and Himel Bros jackets but no armor in those.

Dianese?

Do you have any fit pics or photos of that jacket?

I did ask him if there are new jackets that are currently being designed but he said none at this time. He did make a version of this without the zipper placket. I do agree with fps that adding zippers to the pockets will ruin the lines.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.

Dianese is not the best quality and fit wise and they plaster their stuff with logos--sometimes across the back but almost always on the arms. That is a deal killer for me.

He had a jacket that was made more recently and it had heavy CCP influence. He inserted metal elbow guards and some other things. I found it off putting and gimmicky.

Min know dianese as a one of the moto rider faves. True they have logos but it's a cool logo. I do know now that there is a lot of better stuff out there, as thurston they specialize in this. I personally don't like too many logos but 1-2 is ok for functional jacket.

One custom product that we carry is the Vircos Custom Sport Rider jackets...they're awesome and we do killer designs for them!  Vircos is the firm that does most of the MotoGP and WSBK suits for larger, more internationally known companies...

Link to purchasing that shirt? I could probably recycle many of my current jackets for motorcycle use with that.

Pretty sure the first is someone from here, just got it from a google image search.

Second jacket is fully customisable, I'm not a huge fan of the D-pocket either. Would probably go for 2 zipped hand warmer pockets instead. Just not sure if a straight 40yr old guy can wear a green leather jacket without looking ridiculous.

looks fairly rugged and classic. its not like you are buying an all saints jacket, if u remove the pocket and get a regular one then i think u r good to go

been looking for an RO mollino/intarsia in black size 54 on ebay/sufu for a while now with no luck. any other designers I should be checking out (that regularly carry in this size) in particular?

short list of wants:
-sub $2k
-slimmer cut (a la RO v. some of the aero/vanson stuff I've seen)
-decent quality leather (newer season RO I tried off MH was shit, not sure if attributable to newer season RO leather or being off MH)

Thoughts on this leather bomber jacket?
