Not all, but some of the original East West jackets had these special zipper details you don't quite see in most leathers. Some had a zipper pocket underneath the collar and zippered vents on the side of the jackets if you ever wanted to carry a messenger bag underneath, kind of like what Acronym does with their interops system, but no where near as exaggerated.

Yes, but with a change in the open chest pockets up top to zippered ones that you can see in female jackets of a similar style. I haven't gotten a reply from him on a fitting yet, so nothing is final. This is taking a bit longer than expected, but then again, new pattern is being made and I don't know how long that takes.

Alan used to have one of their jackets back in the late 60's so that's good to know as well.

Will definitely post detailed pictures when the project is complete. Hipster Reunion has done a blue barnstormer, but probably not in the same tone you desire.

Historically, the length on these jackets changed from decade to decade. In the late 40s they were pretty short, but by the 60s they were being made much longer, so you see examples running to both extremes, even from Buco. Below are three J-100 types, a Himel Kensington in steerhide, then the master himself wearing his own jacket in white with navy stripes, and finally me in an Aero goatskin Board Racer. Mine just extends over the belt but looks shorter because of the shirt hanging down.

It also depended on the company.  Brimaco versions of cafe racers were quite long, though I suppose that you could argue that those were based more on a racing shirt.

Givenchy has something a bit East West-y this season.

Thanks Chris, for the fitting advice, and the pictures to illustrate.

Incidentally, jumpsuits on women can look pretty flattering - really creates very long line.

Not affiliated with the seller whatsoever, but just saw this Incarnation leather piece in the case anyone is interested. Love this piece and if only in a small, I'd be all over it! :D

Incarnation jackets have had a rough time on Grailed recently...there's one in dry lamb at $182 right now, and another in calf a couple weeks ago that didn't move at $280 until the seller took it down. I was surprised, but maybe there's just less interest in that style of jacket these days?

I've had one for sale forever. The worst part is that it is relatively conventionally styled, I have just put on too much muscle for the high armholes to fit comfortably.

Ridiculous stuff, but honestly for anything less than what I am listing, I'd rather just keep it in case I slim down in the future again.

The brand it self never really took off in that niche. It doesn't help that some of the earlier stuff were straight up CCP rip offs.

That's odd. Perhaps it is just the style and just noticed my link I originally posted doesn't work, but I really think that specific style is perfect, of course depending on who and how it's worn. I myself would rock the s**t out of regardless. :)

i don't think the incarnation jackets for sale are the one's anyone wants. lately their designs haven't been interesting, a few years back was much cooler.

How do you feel about the Thedi leather?  I have a hard time with the lightweight of it, personally, but they do cut a good (and ridiculously slim) jacket.

How do you guys feel about combining black leather with brass/matte gold zippers? I guess most people prefer the black/silver combo, and leaving the golden metals to warmer colors like brown Leathers...

^ Plenty of historical precedent for brass/matte gold zippers with black leather. That said, I much prefer nickel with black.
