those are 2 very different jackets, rider and moto might fit slim but are different. FWIW that sandro looks nice but for the price point i'd go for the vanson x styleforum collab. Belts is out of place and jacket looks a bit too short.

Thanks for posting the pics. You're right about them being two different directions. I'm concerned about fit and the overall silhouette, which is what attracted me to both. I also love DRs and minimalist motos, so these are pretty much archetypical examples of the styles I'm most into.

 

On my body, I'm hoping the Sandro's cropped cut will look more typical.

 

The Vanson collab is something I've been keeping my eye on. Looks like a fantastic jacket and an appealing price point. Most of the leather I've seen from them is a bit heavy for everyday wear, but I've definitely got it in mind as an option.

@sinnedk where is that first jacket from? Looks quite good

 

First jacket is Leather Jacket 85 by Blk Dnm.

The Sandro jackets run small, slim and short. I don't believe they ever carried XS in the Ramones and Nortons, although it's listed on the site.  I was advised to order the Small as it fits like an XS.  I think you'll be impressed with the Ramones jacket - it's slightly heavier than the Norton and has more of the "classic" look.  More importantly, I think the size may work for you - I'm very close to your own size/dimension and also prefer a shorter/cropped jacket.  

 

I'm quite OCD on how I like my clothes to fit so I did quite a bit of research on these jackets.  From speaking to Sandro's customer service to having their sales reps measure the jackets for me.  The leather quality is superb, the craftsmanship is solid and the fit is spot on.

 

Keep us posted!

I gotta disagree I think the belt looks on point for that jacket. Ro stooges is the only asymmetrical zip I've seen that pulls off having no belt with the epaulets and the toll pocket. Plus if you go on mr porter and look at the pics I'm 80% sure the half belt snaps under the back panel which imo is a ridiculously cool detail, much better than having a full belt and those snap belt loops like on slp and other brands because it keeps the front a little cleaner so it doesn't draw attention to the fact you took the belt off

I can't wait to feel the z150 leather because super thick leathers are what I'm about but for people that want a soft fashion-ey leather the calfskin is probably a better choice

Also with the shortness I notice the sleeves are a little short too which is probably more to do with the model than anything. He probably is something like 6'2" while minimal is 5'8" the torso is gonna look a lot diff on him

i am honestly not a fan of belt and belt loops on a jacket so thats my 2c. And i have the stooges which if it had belt loops would kill the look.

@sinnedk I agree with you. I think belts make sense on a period piece (like a repro or something) but I don't like the look and wouldn't buy a jacket with one.
post #11901 of 16653
Is any perfecto copy not in a sense a repro piece? Just for the point of starting discussion I'm used to people prefferring super minimal leather jackets

But really I want minimal to not like feel scared of his $1200 purchase going to waste because of the half belt which I think looks dope on it and that there is a big bias in minimalism on fashion forums especially when it comes to more aggressive pieces like double riders where you have to just kind of own the look

I had two, they're lined in flannel, so for winter would be a good jacket, otherwise satin lining is the way to go

1200 is steep for that item imo. if it was RO i wouldn't really think the price tag is too crazy. Anyways, my main point to everyone is that those belts functionally will get in the way. How often do you zip up your jacket and then belt it up? I never do and wouldn't. Hence, a belt would just hang and hit stuff. This is why in particular i love the RO stooges.

Do you know where the sandro jackets are made? I couldn't find anything on it.

no idea sorry

I guess to sort of expound on my previous post, the design of the ro stooges and even the toj 4 zip mdr, they really do feel like a reimagined double rider in the style of the designers, and I think parts of their design accounts for the significant design changes. For toj the 4 zip along with the banded hem does add some visual weight to the piece and drew knew this going in, I remember he explicitly mentioned the 4 zip was his favorite take on the mdr and while he made a few "ultimate minimalist double riders" for a few members, he stated a few times he didn't care for the design changes and that it wasn't really true to his vision. Ro is really the same way, the super tight shoulders and extra long sleeves for stacking really create a lot of cool visual accents to the design. The vanson sf rider with the sleeve zips on the outer edge of the sleeve, the bicep zip, and the banded hem are all also very calculated imo. Part of that was junya, part was thurston bros with coming up with the banded hem after members didn't want the belt. Whereas stuff like the sandro and blk dnm, they really are just their generic "take on the perfecto" which isn't inherently bad imo and the calfskin does look nice but if you just cut the belt and other details the jacket imo just looks sort of neutered and plain

The belted DRs in this thread mostly suck, but that doesn't mean belts always suck, IMO. Belts look good on certain jackets. It just so happens that the more rugged, slightly vintage/ retro styles are poorly represented on SF.

I like that retro style, but the belt makes wearing a jacket open, which I always do, extremely awkward.

Think of it as a leather penis.
