yes so Toby Lamb who is the Head Designer at Richard James did take a lot of time with the decision of chest pockets and it's exactly like @dhoff10 that with the CXL its such an incredibly thick leather (even when thinned out) that the bulge wouldn't quite work or look a too bulky and not as sleek with pockets. The decision was made according to the skin of choice in this case and also looking more clean and less busy makes it look amazing on. A modern interpretation of the classic cafe race as you will... and RJ are really in a league of their own when it comes to cut. The lining is also pretty amazing, truly a lifetime leather jacket I am really excited for this one to launch out.I actually like it without the chest zips, they tend to bulge and impact creasing with chromexcel. And great decision on the buco collar. I really like this design
so you see the jacket is quite stiff and needs to be broken into.
Any chance you do offer also the somewhat thicker jacket? Some of us do not abhor the break-in period that much and thick leather has something to it.so you see the jacket is quite stiff and needs to be broken into.
That will happen over time of course but also this sample was made a little thicker than the final piece will be which should resolve the break in period.
ahhahahaha we literally had a long discussion about this with the guys at Richard James talking about how some people on the forum would want it to remain thick... @OrlandoMo what was the thickness moving from and to?Any chance you do offer also the somewhat thicker jacket?

Darn right, in this very context thick means sexy!
