AFAIK, it's that shape where its slim and fitted up top and more relaxed throughout the body.  /  \

that's called a rectangle, since your body is naturally wider at the shoulders then at the waist

don't force your ideas of proper body structure on us. I can have a wider waist than shoulders if I want to!

Can it even seriously be considered a jacket? It looks like a makeshift garment a kid who ran away from his parents to live in forest would make out of a deer he trapped and killed.

In all seriousness:

- The jacket in general lacks finishing touches, it looks like a work in progress rather than finished product
- The high collar is atrocious, the only person who ever looked good in that style is dracula. This issue is exacerbated by the fact (sorry) the guy taking the picture has a bit of chin neck fat
- Sleeves too long. Stylistic choice? Yes. Looks ugly? Also yes.

That dude, in all honesty would look better in a DKNY or mall leather or whatever. I fully understand there will always be certain favourite brands. But for gods sake its just a rather ugly slab of leather with sleeves. No way in hell it would've been posted in here if it wasn't identified as A1923.

The oiled horse leather is really incredible, and the fit is spot-on. I don't know who this critical OJ fellow is, but I'd like to see pictures of his favorite leather jacket just to get some perspective.

Lol, wow. Is that we're calling that jacket? Deceptive simplicity? Even Don Draper would be impressed.

These are my 2 current favourite leather jackets for some perspective:

Those chest zips on the SLP are completely out of proportion to the rest of the jacket. Not a fan of leather jackets that make it all about the hardware.

kinda the SLP thing, they want studs and bling... fwiw I'm not a fan either

Not only the pockets but the shape, Mr. Krugers words popped into my head as soon as I saw it, some pear shaped loser

It's the size of the zips but also the orientation. Perfectly vertical on a design that's all about angles. I think designers are running out of ways to screw up a classic jacket.

SLP rider jackets integrate easily in a look and are fine, well unless you're taller than 5'10"...They're really fucking short.
post #13467 of 16653
When I tried it on, it had a really boxy cut. I think the zippers are meant to accentuate that.

post #13468 of 16653
Yeah, it is rather square (not oversized), nice jacket and all. There's nothing great to say about it but it's a good, everyday piece.

jesus those guys look like they weight 100 lbs possibly total.
