Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 496
Styles mentioned in this thread:
The blue one is 2nd hand but i loved the faded blue (rather than the new bright dsquared ones etc). All up ~100 and ~300 for the blue and black, respectively.
Also have another brown Johnbull one which is my fave of the bunch.
I find that most jackets available in Australia don't fit me well. Even 'Viparo', mentioned earlier on this thread are too large. Sure they say its slim fit, but the sleeves, length and waist area are too 'generic loose', if that makes sense. I recall trying the smallest size they had, and while it fit my shoulders and chest perfectly, everything else was long or loose.
Does anybody have any recs for sculptured leather jackets to fit short dudes? For more traditional styles the Japanese workwear brands work well, but I'm having trouble finding something along the lines of Rick, Julius, Obscur, etc. I have a 27-28 inch waist and stand 5'6", but I work out pretty regularly and weigh about 150 with much of it in the chest and shoulders.
Depending on the model, I can get a snug though flattering fit in Julius wearing a 2 or 3, but that puts the sleeves well over my hands. From looking at most measurements, it seems like Rick would be the same deal. Am I doomed?
Thinking I may just go for a ToJ MDR and give up on my dreams of high collars.
Yea seems correct, I checked my previous 5 zips (size 46) and compared with measurements from porter, pretty much spot on, same with measurements from ssense.
From memory the past few years the 5 zips in size 46 are roughly 18.5 inches in the shoulder, and around 40+ for the chest, one could say it runs "larger" if one is of slighter/smaller frame when compared to say other sized 46 leathers.
If you think the newer "design" is boxy, you will be surprised at the older version, as it is boxier.
Here's a pic of me in my Cactus Mountain hand made, beaded and fringed jacket that I just love to death! It was a gift from the owner who is a dear old and wonderful friend for building her website. The quality and craftsmanship is top notch and fits like a jacket should.
anyone who fails to see how awesome this is does not deserve to be in this thread
