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.
That was my response, too, CG. Simone tends to focus on the leather and its treatment, and that's what appealed to me here, in addition to its (deceptive) simplicity. 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:
