Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 811post #12152 of 1665310/15/14 at 10:19pm
Saw a secondhand MMM navy 5-zip for sale and I was wondering about thoughts on that piece? I searched this thread and there seem to have been conflicting thoughts about the leather quality. Also the owner provided the following measurements:
Does this seem feasible for what seems to be a tagged size 50 from Mr. Porter? The chest seems really slim by those measurements.post #12153 of 1665310/15/14 at 10:33pmLeather quality on those varies season to season so there's no definitive answer. It's usually "alright" to "pretty good," I've never been stunned or too disappointed by MMM leather quality. However, alright doesn't cut it when you're dropping $2500 on a jacket so it also depends on the deal you're getting. It does run tight in the chest and wide in the shoulders, but not that much so, so likely someone measuring in the wrong place. Newer season ones consistently fit true to size. Don't buy ones older than 2008 or so without a good idea of the fit as the sizing is unbelievably screwy season to seasonpost #12154 of 1665310/15/14 at 10:36pmIt really depends. I own both calf made in italy and lamb made in romania. If I were to choose one jacket for the rest of my life the calf is nicer and would be my pick, but I actually wear the lamb more. Its lighter weight and "easier" to wear. Both of mine are size 50 and measure exactly 20.5" p2p. That being said, even though some people say the quality on certain 5 zips is iffy, generally speaking it is good or better across the board.post #12155 of 1665310/16/14 at 10:53pm
Found this post in the Epaulet thread...
So Epaulet jackets are better made than Lewis Leathers now?
Has anyone handled a Lewis Leathers rider in person and can comment on the quality?post #12156 of 1665310/16/14 at 11:30pmpost #12157 of 1665310/16/14 at 11:37pmWhat are people using to judge whether the quality of a leather jacket is any good?
Aside from obvious "flaws" -- like a maker using fatty/ wrinkly leather for certain parts of a jacket -- I'm not totally understanding how people are judging these things. And even then, some vintage repro brands will purposely use those parts of a hide becuase they're truer to the early to mid-century originals.
I get the sense that the things people deem as "quality" are really just "characteristics."
I can tell the difference in quality between an MMM and an H&M, but not so much an MMM and an RO. Or Cucinelli and Loro Piana. Buzz Rickson and Aero. Much like I don't think people can really tell the difference in quality between a Kiton and Isaia (or Crockett & Jones and Carmina, etc etc etc). The extreme comparisons are easy, but the stuff in between doesn't seem to be.post #12158 of 1665310/16/14 at 11:57pmpost #12159 of 1665310/17/14 at 12:40amThey almost exclusively use Horween leather (arguably one of the best tanneries in the world). Although the leather they use is much thicker than the average style forum member is after, it's gorgeous stuff that will last a lifetime. Top quality leather, classic styling and world class manufacturing, no wonder a lot of A list celebs wear Aeros.post #12160 of 1665310/17/14 at 1:44amQuote:Originally Posted by proteinnerd

What A-list celebrities wear Aeros?
Most of the Aero fits I see on the internet look pretty bad aesthetically.post #12161 of 1665310/17/14 at 1:55amIf you don't like them, you didn't like them, no skin off my back. They definitely aren't for the androgynous hipsters if that's what you are into.
As for celebs, from memory Daniel Craig, Leo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, Dave Grohl, Hugh Laurie (whether he is a list is debatable lol), P Diddy and others I can't think of. Check out the Thurston bros thread here to see some examples of good fitting jackets (or at least the fit I like)post #12162 of 1665310/17/14 at 2:06amQuote:Originally Posted by proteinnerd

I didn't say they were bad jackets, I just said they look bad aesthetically in most fits posted on the internet. Then again the main demographic for Aero seems to be overwhite old white men. I've seen a few good fit pics in the sheene and board racer on younger dudes but they are rare.
It's not hard to find good Lewis Leathers fits on the other hand.post #12163 of 1665310/17/14 at 2:45ampost #12164 of 1665310/17/14 at 3:43amWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)Quote:
Thats pretty much the androgynous hipster look that if you like, most Aero jackets probably won't be to your taste. The thickness of the leather they use is akin to real motorcycle jacket leathers...its just too thick for most fashion jacket wearers and doesn't give the drape they are after.post #12165 of 1665310/17/14 at 3:55am
