Neutral.  I'm not sure if it's optimal, but as far as I remember it certainly didn't look bad.  Though perhaps his weathered looks helped the outfit.

 

Double riders are fashion nowadays.  Authenticity is a silly thing.  Maybe you'll want to wear certain other pieces with it, but it's hardly a faux pas to wear a double rider while not being a biker.  Hell... Doc Martens went from being popular with housewives to skins to college girls.  The way you carry yourself will probably indicate if the leather is right for you...

I need some opinions on a double rider, specifically a black schott one star. I like the way the jacket looks a lot, but my style is classic menswear (ocbds, chinos/cords, wool trousers, sweaters, leather "dress" shoes, occasionally sport jacket & ties). I am young, but I'm afraid the jacket would make me look like a goon because whenever I see these in real life or on anyone but Marlon Brando, they look terrible. However, is there any way it could be implemented into a wardrobe such as mine? I am not so rigid in my rules and ways that I would refuse a meshing of the styles. 

i prefer the leather daddy look and cuts but the main issue I have with Schott classic DRs are the baggy sleeves. don't know if you noticed them or if you have 20 inch guns to fill them out.

You do have a valid point. I just didn't want to make a mistake and buy something that will go with nothing I wear. I've always wanted one, but I'm also not going to try and pull off a dark streetwear look because it's just not me. I never see too many people try to experiment with double riders.

Could anyone recommend a motto jacket for me? I'm 6'3"-6'4" 175-185 lbs. so obviously I'm tall and skinny. I want something like a schott perfecto in black but the only concern I have is that I want it to be very fitted. I just get nervous that a regular schott won't be slim enough and long enough. Also I want to stay in schott price range. So no slp or balmain etc. I like how these fit and like the styles in general. Any suggestions?

2nd hand stooges in a 52 or large or new blk dmm, size large

Also if you're set on schott their 626 is slimmer and longer. their stock photos are horrific but this photo from their site looks much better

If I have 18 inch shoulders, would a perfecto with 20 inch shoulders be too large?

is blk dnm worth it at retail?
post #12568 of 16653
I hear the leather is actually pretty good but idk being made in India when other than being slim there's really nothing special about design would lead me to not buy them at retail when schott and vanson both offer leathers at 700. If you lurk on gilt long enough they go for 400-500 which is more in line with what I'd pay and I'm sure on other sites they go down to those prices too

But I mean if you really like their designs and just want a jacket and it's worth the extra $$$ to you to get it sooner than later then it's worth it to you

No. There are better options out there with the prices their charging.

 

Schott, Vanson, some of the brands at BlueInGreen, etc

schott and vanson are nothing like blk dnm.
