Jacket looks good imo.

 

Plus they're one of the few brands at that price bracket who cut their stuff to fit short skinny people, which is great for me. I bought a few suits from them for a new job I started 8 months ago, fabric and cut is great, and they have frequent sales.

Sure.

First, I am somewhat old school and I prefer older jacket styles, including J-100s, half-belts, Californian, etc.  The listed manufacturers specialize in these and other similar designs.  While I appreciate (some of) the more avante garde, contemporary designs (particularly MA+), I am not yet ready to venture down that path (although MA+ is, admittedly, tempting).  Moreover, the particularly slim contemporary designs do not work well on my middle-aged body.

Second, the listed manufacturers consistently deliver outstanding quality and workmanship.  The stitching and other details are first rate.

Third, the listed manufacturers use high quality, durable and interesting leathers.

700 euros max at this time.I dont mind buying a used one as long its in great condition.My other problem is the weight.I am currently around 55 kg (and i cant do much about it,i am trying though :P).I am 174cm tall.What size would you suggest with the potential of adding some more weight?Is there any ratio that can calculate what size is suitable? Lets say the X size its good if you are between (Min,Max) kg

see above list posted by androit, i'd add to check vanson and schott, TOJ used if you can find it here or on another site. 700e is a lot of room to buy a leather jacket.

sizing i cannot help you with based on height/weight, measurements of chest and shoulders is how to to tell. Just find a jacket you like in maybe one of the mentioned makers and you can either ask for measurements or have one made.

Could it be a little more tailored?  Sure.  As it stands, though, there's nothing baggy about this jacket.  The shoulder seams hit where they're supposed to, and the chest is very slim.  The waist  and biceps could be taken in a little bit, but overall I'm happy with the fit.

 

It's brand-new cowhide as well, it's going to take some time for this thing to break in.  Right now it's very stiff.

 


I think it would look good a few inches shorter. Wouldn't change much else.

Agreed that certainly looks much better! Minor nits to pick, sure, but it's more reasonable than the previous picture.

Who did it better? Leather MA-1 edition.

 

 

Rick Owens 

 

 

 

 

 

TOJ

I just need a black leather and that first RO MA-1 just about does it for me
post #12322 of 16648
disto

Ro is longer and slimmer, toj is more of a classic fit. Both done well but different.
post #12323 of 16648

Always liked the placket on the RO

post #12324 of 16648
Both look great.

I'd personally choose the ToJ.

looks better, but still a bit shorter would be better...

I took a look on the jackets from the pages but i think they are more to the vintage side

What do you mean by classic fit? TOJ is pretty slim esp depending on measurements.

I wish I could tweak the TOJ's designs a bit. The shoulder construction makes them look a put too pointy imo. Also the gussets on a ma-1 seem pretty out of place on the design.

Yeah I agree it looks a lot nicer zipped. The lightweight cowhide really does conform to the arms better once broken in. every week I notice my 626 creasing and forming to my arms better, yours will likely do the same

That rick owens was not slim, I had it and it was super padded, too bulky.
