Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 655

post #9811 of 10903

OJSIMPSON could you recommend to us some of your preferred leather jacket brands?



@SuperflyBanana if you read their blog it says she was wearing the jacket before it came out, so it was most likely a promotional giveaway or paid advertisement. Nothing wrong with that though. You can call me childish but I was just being real with you.

I will say this, Drew is a marketing genius, he has drones like you advertising his ugly clothes pissing out the TOJ kool aid while hes off doing whatever.

I don't go around "advertising" his stuff. I'm not mad you're slamming them either, I totally get why you don't like them with your response to me, but when you make such a general comment to begin with, it's kinda hard not having to explain this and that. :confused:

Them fucking it up, and over thinking measurements is their fault, especially when pictures on how to measure your self, and a recommendation is given. Hell, they get as specific as telling you to measure around your nipples and rib cage, that's pretty specific! If you can't feel or see where to place your measuring tape with that kinda information given, you kinda deserve to fuck shit up.

"90% TOJ's look like shit" That's subjective. I will say I personally think 90% of the overall outfits look like shit, and does the jackets no justice. Leather jacket+ white sneakers just isn't my taste, especially high tops. You a power ranger son? MY OPINION! Don't get mad anyone else reading this. Then again, the same can be said about any piece of clothing poorly put together with things that shouldn't go with it. 

edit: You have you're opinions and gave reasons, I respect that. We no longer have to talk about this.

Not really. There's something to be said for sticking to the vision of the designer. That's why they're a creative director in the first place.

I admit that SF may represent the 1% of fashionistas so this may not hold as true in the comfy confines of thr forum.

On a related point when I see the MTM guys on MW posting their suits I'm mostly shuddering in horror at the garish patterns, too-large shoulders, and billowy pant legs but if someone posts the rare tailored Jil or Dior suit I'm usually impressed.

Was looking through Zara's website last night...

Your point makes no sense. Toj is just using classic biker silhouettes for their designs. Moreover, there are a lot of other makers that do custom jackets just google it.

with most clothes I agree but with leather and wool I always have to take the stretch factor into consideration especially with my broad shoulders (ymmv)

Let's not forget Dsquared now:


Although it actually looks kinda baller

post #9821 of 10903

Dsquared, in general, is very good quality-wise. I have a coat that I have been wearing for several seasons now - still looks like new.

post #9822 of 10903
that dsquared doesn't look anything like the SLP, they are both double riders that's about it
post #9823 of 10903
I had a dsquared moto prior to sf enlightenment, iirc it was decent stuff but not worth retail
post #9824 of 10903
While the Viparo one sure isn't as good as SLP or TOJ, I think you can't say it's "ugly" or "crap"..
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

There's stuff out there that is far worse imo
post #9825 of 10903
I might post some pictures of the Viparo later. It's obviously not comparable with any of the top leather jackets out there, but it's undoubtedly better than the likes of Zara etc.

I currently have three Viparo's and I'm happy with each one of them. They're great jackets for the price point and they've had quite a few nice designs in the past.
