    I tried = it was better for shoulders, less confortable on chest and too tight on waist but it was a longer lenght (28 instead of 26) so i wasn't able to compare.

    The 42 = ok with jumper+shirt+fur lining
    Too loose with just a shirt or without the fur.

    The 40 = ok without the fur lining but a little tight with it. May be the leather will stretch with time?

    So you don't respect drag queens?
    no

    Ernest, you need to start working on loosing that gut. Other than that, the jacket looks fine.

    I think it's too big. Bike jackets are designed to be much wider across the back of the shoulders than across the front of the chest. With the jacket zipped all the way up like that, you should really only be able to move your arms (comfortably) from hanging down at your sides to streched out toward your handle bars. Then unzip your jacket when you get off your bike. (The smaller chest width makes it look better when it's unzipped, too).

    Fur lining? Maybe you don't ride a bike. In which case it looks fine.

    Fur lining= you don't know what is fur?

    No i just take the subway.

    If i was used to riding a bike i wouldn't take this type of jacket with NO protections.

    Yes, agreed size looked good. Â Sorry for the confusion.
    I have been wearing this jacket for 7 years now. The quality is very good and i would like to buy the same but with the easy rider stripes, that's why i was asking about the size.

    The jacket looks pretty good, although I would personally go a size smaller if you want a more dramatic silhouette. I personally prefer Vanson (the fit is just better on me, and they have very good "biker" jackets that are really made for wearing in the city, not for serious riding) but Schott is also pretty cool. Not sure about the Rider stripes though. You might get sick of them after just a little time.

    Well the shoulder seams seem [​IMG] a little wide. But seems good otherwise..
