    Just recently, I was looking for a brown leather jacket (to wear casually, and when actually riding my motorcycle).

    I visited the local Schott store here in Los Angeles to try some on. I tried the 141 at first, but the brown color was super dark, that it looked black. I wasn't really digging the color.

    Then the salesguy showed me the 530, and the brown color was awesome. I ended up getting it.

    Here are some pics:

    Most of my clothing is slim and tailored, and I think leather jackets especially should be pretty form fitting. I hear the rule for leather jackets is to size down from your usual size, and that's exactly what I did. Even the salesguy recommended the smaller size over the next size up. For what it's worth, the jacket feels good when zipped up, and it does not restrict my arm movement at all.

    The jacket is also brand new, so I still have to break it in, and I hear leather stretches a little after a few wears.

    How does the fit look on this piece? Thanks in advance for the input!

    Maybe it's the way I'm standing, but my tummy feels good, not tight at all.

    It has a good fitted look. Plus, most guys wear it open with a T-shirt which looks best on you in your photos. If you plan to wear a sweater, then size up.

    Hey the jacket looks fantastic. Perfect fit on you too! I'm actually just on the cusp of buying the same jacket and I think we're about the same size. Just curious: what's your height and what size jacket is that?

    Thanks!

    I am 6'0" tall, and I went with a size S. I tried on the size M at first, but it was a little too loose for my liking. Even the sales guy recommended I size down, and I'm glad I did.

    Awesome same height exactly! I'm definitely buying this jacket.

    Just wondering, how warm is the jacket? I'm reading "flannel lining" on the website and a few people's descriptions, but is it pretty thin? I'm thinking it's kind of a "winter in the south" type jacket; good until about 40 degrees Fahrenheit (around 5 Celsius).

    I'd love to hear your impressions on it.

    It's lined with flannel, but it's not thick at all. It's exactly as you said "winter in the south" type of jacket.

    I wouldn't want to wear just this jacket in snowy conditions, as it won't keep you that warm.

    Good fit, the jacket looks very nice, I really like the collar. You should check Aeroleather jackets
