Also, it looks like you have opted for the racing shirt style?  Wh not a straight hem, which is much more common and easily recognizable in cafe racer styles, which many of the other elements look to be consistent with.  But yes, you have a variety of pocket configuratios there, some of withc are more "racer", and at least one of which is more commonly seen in "civilian" bomber jackets.

 

Is this for some sort of project?

thanks a lot for the input,

 

those first row #3 and #4 I got the inspiration from Pegasus Luftwaffe's chest pocket somehow looks great on that jacket, however I admit it doesn't look that great on my drawing.

 

as for the hem, I somehow like how this kind of hem for several reasons:

- it doesn't cut the body in half proportion wise so perfect length jacket is less an issue

- wearing untucked t/shirt underneath looks more acceptable not as sloppy looking than with straight hemmed jacket imo

- I like how it mirrors the slope of the shoulder 

- even when the jacket length can be considered a long racer jacket visually at its longest point, but technically on the side it still has some advantage of shorter jacket with easier access to pants pockets, easier to sit with, and won't flare out on the side, less strain on the main zipper's bottom

 

about the pockets, especially chest pockets, I think on this kind of jacket the chest is probably the tightest part of the jacket, having a pocket on that part doesn't seem like a good idea because whatever stored there would be bulging out against the leather, so I tried some ideas basically to have the pocket bag below the pecs and above the gut slightly to the side where there is some space there as in

#5 on first row and #3 on second row. I use V angle to make it not droopy looking.

 

it is not a project, just a random drawing and sharing ideas :embar:I dream of a new jacket but currently out of budget

@navetsea Did you ever take any higher res photos of that jacket you sketched and then had made for you? It was a year or so ago, iirc.

Anything with a design similar to the TOJ minimal double rider jacket?

Original cafe racers had no hip pockets but had chest pockets, because it's pretty hard to reach anything at your hip

when you are hunched over, and also, it would be pretty uncomfortablr.  The waist on the cafe racer is actually the tightest spot, generally.  They tend to be quite V shaped, as you probably know.

 

I like the shirt hem.  The issue, with this is, to me, it looks like you mixed a racing shirt with a cafe racer with a western shirt.  While all the elements make sense the way you describe it, because the details are pretty recognizable from the originals, that it could possibly look a bit frankensteined.  It could looke really good, but it could also look really overdesigned.

if done in a very lightweight goatskin or lamb and study the color and finishing it would probably fly just fine in many of these configs. as has been pointed out it's practically a shirt (or even a sleeved waistcoat - there is a heritage filson design that is very close to this that was repro'd not too long ago). many old forgotten designs are pretty frankenstein. not everything has to be a classic.

 

a single applied slash pocket might work too, close to the zipper for the opposite hand, sort of like those old bucos d-pockets...

Yeah, I would agree that as a shirt, in a lightweight goatskin, that could work.  

 

I also agree that not everything has to be a classic, but sometimes, there there are too many elements, it can get a bit messy.  Maybe eschew the zippered cuffs and have a snap cuff instead?  That would put it definitely into the realm of a leather shirt.

@LA guy and @double00

yes it was frankensteined from all those ideas, racing + western + waistcoat,
prior to that drawing I drew something visibly more western nod[1].gif

High Large Leathers.

 

Came across this brand online. Looks fantastic, similar style to the steer trucker @LA Guy did with Aero. Gonna try and pick one up in the next little while, but it looks like they only ship within Japan for now.

 

Anyone have experience with them?

No experience, but you if you look up Zenmarket, you can get them to proxy.  We work with them.  Um, here is their thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/518233/japanese-online-stores-proxy-service-zenmarket-jp-official-affiliate-vendor and you get the first shipment free of fees, not that the fees are ever high.

Incidentally, mine is a type 3, but this is a type 2.  Both cool.

Kind of interesting: Atelier Savas recently posted a photo of their production board. Apparently they make everything from Western styled jackets to bombers to even sport coats.

Would be curious to see what the sport coats look like.
