    You realize I don't work for Attachment ...?

    Anyway, I'm not sure this jacket could be considered similar to Stooges, unless the only criteria is that its a double-rider:

    Quit with the snarky comments. I figured you like attachment and would notice an opportunity to suggest their double rider. I am pretty sure all he wants is a slim fit rider. The stooges was an example of what he likes.
    Looks too old man jacket to me.

    Yeah I can't find any real signifiers other than most schott jackets have the gusseted sleeves zips on the back rather than the side, but there's really no unique details about the jacket, I'm guessing it's a schott and if it isn't any schott perfecto will give you that look. The jacket isn't particularly slim fitting in the arms either which leads me to guess it isn't a fashion-ey brand

    no way is it a schott as it hasnt got chain and ring zip pullers.
    schott has their zips to close at the bottom too.

    looks like a cheap / no brand 80s jacket.

    Mikael never struck me as being very interested in fashion so I would also guess that it's a cheap no-name jacket. You can find dirt cheap leather jackets in a lot of stores where they sell metal merch and in bike stores, I'd guess it's something like that.

    In three days I'll get to see Opeth live, can't wait! :D

    Anyone out there familiar with brands whose RTW jackets incorporate diamond shoulder quilting or pleat details?

    I know it's more of an excessive look than seen in most of the thread, but I ride and it wouldn't look out of place on the bike. I like this Joe Rocket riding jacket, but thought I'd see if any quality leather brands made something similar I can invest in:

    Lewis leathers racing jacket no.442 They offer mtm, a wide colour range of calf and have added horsehide as an option for some styles I believe. Very good water resistance and very supple for a heavy leather.
