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.
I agree it's not the best way to tell leather quality or anything but you have to admit that it's hard to call the jacket 'crap'. It seems to work well enough in those fits, while I could point ot a lot of leathers out there that would look far worse, also in the same price range, for example Diesel
Bullitt I'm not feeling it. There seems to be too much leather going on in the back area, and the arms seem really wide and not at all skinny. The midsection is tight and rises, so I'd shop around for another piece if you can still return.
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.
Honestly speaking, the jacket looks horrible. Get something else.
I have several MTM including a trench In Japanese calf but this is my favourite-a simple biker but made in midnight navy leather so soft it's actually glove leather - but fully waterproofed and the designer said he's had a similar one for 20 years!!!
Barney's has a black 5 zip left. Size 50. Somewhere around $2800. Leather feels really nice... much better than the SLP and Givenchy leathers I checked out today.
checked out the blue 5 zip from this season, colour is nice but quality is not even close to the black calf FW13 iteration (which i would guess is the one you're talking about). Edited by robinsongreen68 - 1/23/14 at 5:17am
