Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 656

post #9826 of 11618
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 #9828 of 11618
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.

@brad-t am trying to see if issue could of been fixed, if it can't then yea return is the best way to go

Thanks for your replies.

@sinnedk The straps are not fastened on these pictures. I will make them tighter and take a new photo.

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.

Honestly speaking, the jacket looks horrible. Get something else.

Balenciaga

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.
