heres the jacket zipped up on me, still think its too big Erdawe?? ...

nah good fit, if you sized down one it would've put more pressure on the seams and high friction areas like the arm pits. as long as its very fitted it's good and of course leather will give over time.

The jacket was sized fine, seeing that pic I wouldn't have changed it. Again, the first pics threw me off for reasons I mentioned earlier. The washed leather on it looks nice. On Topic with the thread I really like the burgundy-red color of this CN jacket, looks gorgeous... though the jacket styling itself doesn't do much for me.

I think one of my main purchases next year will be RO or Julius leather. They are amazing. Will look good with either pair of my w+h boots and slim straight + taper denim. Awesomeness.

I love a good leather jacket, and have more than I need. I've posted a bunch of photos of jackets from my collection (mainly Belstaff) but here are some more, mainly ones I've sold now. Mulberry leather - Perfect fit on this, great leather as you'd expect from Mulberry. I just couldn't get on with the pre-disstressing and how it appears a different colour in different lights, so I've sold it on Nudie Leather bomber. Not bad at all. Fits well, reasonable leather but I have better, so am going to sell it me thinks Lot 78 - I don't think Lot 78 have made it over to the States yet. Apart from the crap name they make super nice leather jackets. Incredibly well fitting (on me at least) with the most amazingly soft leather Lot 78 - again lovely leather and a great fit

Glad to see this thread still going. I just got my Aero Highwayman after a 6 month wait, and will be getting an Aero Veste de Rallye in the winter. Woo hoo!

I recently got this one,



The quality is great, soft and thick supple leather, so I jumped on it when it went on sale, but sadly I just cant pull off a size 50 in dsquared, now I think I'll have to sell it or trade it instead

I think keeping it simple and basic is the best way to go with leathers. Kunks high neck RO is perfect, that mulberry one is great too. RO or julius next year for me. Maybe aero depending on the quality of the vintage black calf.

I find the ones that are catching my eye in this thread are the ones that aren't black or dark brown. I'm sure it's just that they're standing out among the acres of black leather, but still, I'm seeing some nice-looking jackets here in dark red and whatnot.

This is a great jacket. I live in L.A. and there is a What Comes Around Goes Around store in Hollywood. They have this jacket in the cognac shown above and black, costs about $875.-

Am debating whether to go for this or get the original Belstaff at abt. $1,500. which is really stretching the budget.

I love this style jacket. At WGACA they also have the Belstaff Lawrence Of Arabia in heavy med brown cotton, which can be seen on the Belstaff website. It's killer.

Since the US Wings I tried didn't fit me right I'm returning it and planning to get one of the above.

Opinions would be welcome.

This is the best leather jacket, luckily I am the owner of it: I want to get the same thing now, in suede and perhaps another color of leather.

I'll be in Buenos Aires for two weeks in July. Does anyone have any experience buying a leather jacket down there? I've never been, but from what I understand, the leather's top-notch and the price is just right. Thoughts appreciated!

A little known brand that also makes some good leather jackets and has some very good sample sales is m0851 from Canada, they usually make jackets from something they call analine leather, or something like that, which is like a dye/wax treatment which makes the leathers age/stain really well although the leather itself in this line is a bit thin for my tastes on some types of jackets, but sometimes they get a batch of washed leathers that also have a really nice dye/stain treatment and are thicker yet still very smooth and supple to the touch, definitely better then the regular line and pretty much on par with most high end designer jackets.
