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.

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 #9818 of 12618

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 #9819 of 12618
that dsquared doesn't look anything like the SLP, they are both double riders that's about it
post #9820 of 12618
I had a dsquared moto prior to sf enlightenment, iirc it was decent stuff but not worth retail

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 #9822 of 12618
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.

I just received an Alexander Leather Roadster in black goatskin. So far I like the leather and the quality of the jacket.

Unfortunately I am not quite sure if this is a good fit and I might return the jacket. It feels ok when I wear it open, but when I zip it up it feels restrictive and is a bit tight across the chest, just where the pockets are. You can see the greases under the pockets on the detail photo.

Please let me know what you think. Thank you very much in advance.

It looks fine except in the stomach area, are you able to make it tighter with the straps that are attached?
post #9825 of 12618
Tightening the straps is just going to accentuate the issue since it will cinch the waist. Midsection fit is bad, you should return it.

Filcol, hard to tell much about the jacket from those photos. Thin, attractive guy wearing it well-styled in blown out photos is probably not an accurate representation.
