Seems quite long

Definitely the Vicenzia russet.  I mean, the battered tan is nice, but seriously, the vicenzia, unless you are looking for something really heavy, is a consicerably more complex looking leather.

That jacket looks a little too long.

Personally not into the hoodie + DR combo. It's a bit too Kanye cos play.

2 jackets everyone should have in their collection: A side-zip motorcycle (Schott Perfecto) and a nice clean one with collar (Schott 689 Horsehide)

JP stores, END, and Haven, most sizes already sold out. I kinda thought about it but the designs for FW16 look interesting.

The elastic was new to me.

I usually wear a 48 and this is a 50 but I think it fits pretty well. I could probably wear a 48 no problem but I like being able to layer a sweater in winter. Sorry for the crappy bathroom pics.. I broke my real camera on a recent hiking trip.

Only question mark for me on the fit are the sleeves.. I know 5-zip sleeves are cut wider but these feel really wide. I did a quick measurement and my KKA DR (which has pretty slim sleeves) is 6.25" at the elbow, my Theory DR is 6.5" and the 5-zip here is 7.25". Thinking of having my tailor slim these down a bit. Thoughts?
 

I think this fits really well, especially considering how the 5 zip used to fit. The slim and unfortunately much shorter sleeves of recent models doesn't have the same kind of strong look that the original did. Theres an old editorial photo thats for sure in this thread's past with a man wearing a black calf 5zip with white boots. His fits similar to yours. I couldn't find the pic of him standing but this is from the same shoot I think.

 

 

 

 I have a newer one thats close in look to yours, its grey and burnished but in lamb. I bought it thinking that it was from around the same time (2009-2010) as yours but after looking at the comm code I'm pretty sure mine is from 2014. Anyways, I wouldn't even give the sleeve width a second thought because that jackets fits you really cool, and the leather looks beautifully aged. I'd wear with wide trousers or heavily stacked denim.

 

Here's mine, sleeve length is shorter but I also am very lanky. I went with a 52, but would enjoy a 54 if I could have found one in this color.

I really dig Blackmeans, though I've never actually held one of their jackets in my hands. They've got some great designs...even their basic bikers are really well-proportioned and just look good. Apparently John Elliott brought them in to do their jackets for FW16, and I'm interested to see how that turns out.

 

I love their suede band-collared rider and their collared moto. Their stuff looks awesome simple and murdered out, too.

I've been looking for that pic several times over the last few months. I've seen it online before but I can't remember where... It shows the same guy standing at a bus stop or something with some other random people and wearing the same outfit as in the pic above, right?

Yes.

 

 

Found in the SZ Margiela thread, but I'm sure plenty of other places as well.
