Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 577

calf and deerskin seem the most popular versions. the fw13/14 calf is very nice IMO, but zippers are gunmetal. i dont think they've made the silver zipper version for a while.
the vince seems to fit your shoulders but the body looks quite boxy on you. the 5 zip has more of a taper and would probably be better, if you can find a small enough size

I have saphir renovateur, but I'm not sure if that would be appropriate to use.  I have the option of trying for a refund from the seller, but I don't think it's necessary as long as the rest of the jacket is in good shape. I'm asking my proxy for a couple more pics before proceeding, though.

Thank you. Yeah I noticed the gunmetal zippers when I tried it on. Thy are very subdued which could be good or bad based on preference. I, personally, would prefer the silver I think.

I tried a 34/44 and 36/46, and both fit. 44 was a lot snugger in the body, and arm width too I think? Do the measurements change all over on the MMM on sizing up, or just at the body and waist?

The guy there said he liked both but the 44 looked "sexier" (his words haha). I could only just about tell the difference except when I zipped up, where the 34 was considerably snugger.

What do you guys think?

The 34/44:









And the 36/46:

They both look fine. If you normally wear slim clothes I would stick with the 44, it will only stretch and get more broken in as you wear it. If you tend to wear average fitting clothing, you might want to keep the 36. The 34 also looks a little short, but the 36 looks a little loose in the arms. I'm probably in a similar situation but I ended up sizing up because I wear slim/straight jeans instead of slim/skinny. Hope that helps

Like Fucus said, 44 with 46 length would be perfect. I would go for 46 for the length as you will probably layer.

I tend to own some very slim clothes, as well as some slightly more average simply because when I shop smalls, more often than not, they are still a little bigger on me than I would like, and XS is too small. So I'm at a horribly awkward size with bad proportions which is unfortunate.

If I do buy this, I feel like the 36 would just be an all round safer option. But if the sleeves are baggy/sloppy I feel like I would rather just skip it altogether and look for something else.

I see some older 2008 versions of this for sale in a couple of places. Does anyone know if the sizing has remained consistent?

Also, something I was wondering was how much do these actually stretch? If I bought the 36 and it stretched some more, won't it look even more baggy?

Here is another picture of the 36 showing the sleeves. I think they are too loose unfortunately.

Do they actually have this combination?

Also thanks to everyone helping me so far for being patient and bearing with me. I really appreciate it. I can't do this very easily on my own.

Get the 44 man. That sleeve on the 46 (especially if that's zipped) looks uhoh.gif

And don't zip it up. (I own that 5 zip, and well, it owns)

But if you don't like the slim-ness, then I don't think any of the recent 5-zips will be to your liking. I hear the older ones were boxier in the body though

Haha I sort of thought the same about those sleeves on the 46.

I actually really like the slimness. I am just a little worried that the 44 is too slim. If the older ones are a little boxier/looser that might be a good thing, because at almost $3000 there is no way I can afford retail on these things. I'm going to look for one on the BST. So I guess the 46 is out of the running. That sucks because the 44s are going to be a pain to find.

Seeing that side shot it seems that the problem is definitely related to the fit of the jacket vs your bodytype. The jacket has an extreme taper, and due to the large shoulders it works better for T shaped torsos. You will look better in a 34, but at the end of the day you may have more luck in a different model leather jacket in achieving a similar look.

Yeah I think I should keep looking.

Ideally something with a mid collar, asymmetrical zipper, slight taper and skinny arms (the RO Bullet I tried today had perfect skinny arms) would be great. I didn't really like the high collars so much. When I didn't have it zipped all the way up, it looked a bit too big and flappy for my tastes.

Could anyone suggest something else I could try?

Asymmetrical zip and no high collar kinda sounds like you want a fencing leather? Something like this?



Don't get too excited though, its CCP. if you thought MMM was expensive...

Maybe the new collateral concepts leather would be worth looking at, too. No asymmetric zip, but slim and fitting without a really high collar. Edit: also, that exact jacket (the sample) is for sale on stylezeitgeist for $1000. bit more palatable than the 3k for mmm maybe?

This is very nice! I'm not even going to look up the price haha! What I find though is that the asymmetrical zippers on the fencing style ones, just like the one above, curves a lot. I'm a fan of how it is on the Stooges. In fact I'm looking to find one of the Stooges in stores to try!

Interesting that you bring this jacket up, as I emailed Albert about this very style only a couple of days ago. This is the 4th iteration movement right? I think the sample he had on sale was a 50? Although he said turnaround for another size would be 2-3 weeks which is really not bad at all. It looks really really nice. Whats the Horween Horsehide like?

I've always wanted a shearling coat like this. Every cool, cute jock in high school wore these and I wanted to be, look just like them. Finally found one that fits and in a good price. I can't wait to wear this when the weather permits biggrin.gif


This coat was also worn by characters in the 2 movies that I loved shog[1].gif
