^ As much as some might like to subscribe to the fallacy that fashion is strictly for our own eyes, it's pretty daft to suggest that we don't care about how were perceived - you're telling me we've all signed up on an internet site to talk about what we look like but harbor no interest in how we are perceived? Well, you might be able to wear a horsehide A2 and not be a fighter pilot, but If you're wearing a authentically decorated jacket or you're joining the A2 with a pair of aviators and some Corcorans - you will get Top Gun comments. I think it can absolutely look tacky, wearing a legit MC jacket when not riding. It really depends not only on the jacket, but on what you have paired with it. If you've got a padded, belted, traditional-cut jacket; that can be very risky - but then not quite as risky if it's got a lot of natural wear - it is largely about context. Also, avoid the harness or engineer boots and the leather gloves, if you're going with the MC jacket that day.
