Hi guys, I am looking into buying a nice quality black leather biker jacket, assymetrical zip, that fits slim, preferably around the price range of $300 to $800. Could someone point me into the right direction as to where/which brands I should look into and where I might be able to buy it. I've been looking and really wanting robert geller, rick owens, or julius, but they are way too much for my price range. -Thanks
Edit: Sorry, can this be moved to the noob thread? Don't want to create a whole new thread for this, thanks and sorry.

Damn, wouldn't it be awesome if someone offered a MTM asymmetrical zip leather riders jacket for around $700?

Shame nobody does that

You wearing it at the club or actually going to ride? If your riding, do something in horsehide by Vanson or Schott

Goat leather is also pretty supple and quite abrasion resistant. Schott's and Vanson are both pretty solid bike jacket makers, I occasionally see something alright from Joe Rocket, but I'm saving my pennies for a Langlitz cascade build. Yes, I ride.
If I didn't, I'd definitely look for a second hand Rick, TOJ or some such.

dude, if you ride, get some proper gears, take a look at Dainese, Alpinestar or RS Taichi... they all have leather jacket, with protection padding...
