Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 564

I want the helmet and bike.

I plan on making a sample jacket but am undecided on whether it will look good in the brown leather (as seen on the shoes I've made) or the black hide underneath. What do you gents think?

Edit: After doing some research, I think I know what this jacket is. It's actually the 2011 version of the 5 zip jacket that was only sold in Barney New York at Japan. It was a limited edition that look like the first gen 5 zip hence the armpit vents and some other things.

nice ... pit-zips are a great feature ... oftentimes, I have grommets installed to vent moisture

I was leaning toward the brown as well. I'm also working on replicating these two jackets since I was never able to find them in my size.

When working with the concept for the second jacket, I figured why not experiment with corresponding ostrich hides, just to see how the jacket turns out. However it might be overkill on an already 'loud' jacket. What do you think?

ok seriously, i was joking about supporting the ostrich leather jacket.

The 2 jackets you posted are weird as well.
jacket 1 - cannot decide if it is a jacket or vest. also whats up with those buttons/rhine stones near the shoulder area. I would never wear that and would make fun of someone that does.

jacket 2 - a bit better but why all the colors? it looks like a mess similar to those jackets with all the nascar advertisements on it, might as well add advertisements to it.
Check this out, closer to what you want but looks way better Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
What are you looking for in a leather jacket? Casual, fashionable or something rough to protect you while riding a bike? Additionally, how much do you want to spend?

There are a lot of styleforum favorites such as MMM 5 zip, RO intarsia or stooges. Good brands like Temple of Jawnz, Schott NYC, new affiliate vendor Thurston Bros looks cool. There are a lot of good things out there better than what you posted. There more distressed options like incarnation, backlash, BORIS BIDJAN SABERI, a1923, etc.

For me the choice would be between classic look VS distressed look. Once i know that, i can make a solid choice.

EDIT: folks memeber Namor is selling an awesome jacket here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/351305/new-perfecto-brand-by-schott-nyc-burgundy-aviator-bomber-995-size-large, $350 for a Shcott is ridiculously low, the only reason its that low is because Barnyes did not know what they marked down. see http://www.schottnyc.com and compare the prices.

EDIT2: guys these are just my opinions/suggestions, if you dont agree with them thats fine, not trying to push my tastes on others.

i was kidding about the ostrich jacket too but you are so far off-base here – not to mention ill-informed – that's it's embarrassing

stop trying to project only your own tastes onto others

Ostrich is a terribl jacket leather. It stretches and deforms weirdly around the feather "holes" and as far as I imagine would end up looking super weird
