the shoulders are not too wide. However, they are cut without taking into account my rolled forward shoulders, because I'm guessing that most guys wanting it are not going to have my boxers shoulders. I took a fast pic to show this, but it won't load right now. I'll try again tomorrow.

It does remind me though, why fit pics áre such a bad idea for any product shot. Also, the Jacket will hit a standard 5'11" just under the belt line or dead on.

People can adjust from the stock measurements, of course, but it's typically not going to be an awesome idea to try to design from scratch.

 

Edit: more succinctly, the sleeveheads are not cut for my specific shoulders.

I think that you can see from this angle that the shoulders hit at the right spot laterally, with just a tiny bit of drop it extension, but that my shoulders are rolled forward.

I'll take a picture with a jacket made for riding later to show you the difference. The problem with a lot of that type of jackets, for a lot of people, is the angle on the shoulder, which can be much more of an issue.

Question:

 

I'm between two sizes of a thin lambskin leather that only comes in S/M/L/XL, should I do the smaller size or the larger? They both look fine on me, I'm just thinking the M might conform better to my body over time, while the L might get too loose. Again, this is thin lambskin.

Get the one that fits you best right now.  Lambskin will lose it's shape over time, regardless, so you may as well get the one the looks best right now.

Digging this thread. This is the jacket I spend a lot of time in and seriously kicks ass. German WW2 fighter pilot jacket (no bullet holes). But there are no raw edges and every seam has piping. Warm and comfy.

Even with the flowers I think I'd rock it. Sick jacket

I keep wanting to try on some Dsquared2 because they're literally the only Canadian-ish fashion house I know of. Most of their stuff is too wild but if I had to push my comfort zone a little I'd check this jacket out. Not for $4,000, of course, but, you know, theoretically.

The stuff looks like good quality.

Hey guys, I'm going to be in Amsterdam for a few days shortly. Would like to take advantage of the Euro and buy a leather jacket (biker's ideally). Any recommendations for Amsterdam menswear stores? Cheers. Don't mind spending USD1000ish.

I'm looking to buy a leather jacket with a budget of $1k. Knowing nothing about leather jackets other than what I've read here, I was wondering if I could get some input on this Schott jacket.

https://www.schottnyc.com/products/cowhide-leather-motorcycle-jacket.htm

I will not be riding in the jacket and am looking for something I could wear in the Fall, Spring, and Summer. I'm leaning towards a lighter-weight, slim-fitting jacket with a softer, more supple feel than horsehide.

Also, I'm not sure if this is sacrilegious, but I don't care for the belt and buckle on many jackets in a similar style to the one in the link above. Is it possible to have the belt removed? Or, is there a similar style without a belt (but in my price range) that someone may be able to recommend? I've checked Aero, Himel, Real McCoy's, and Lewis Leathers (don't care for the logo on the outside of the Lewis), but they are either out of my price range, too heavy/stiff of a leather, or not the style I'm after.

Any thoughts on the Schott jacket and/or recommendations on other jackets in a similar style would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for the help.

If you don't like the belt, get a café racer instead of a perfecto/double rider.
