It's called a Moonshiner because it's based off the Bootlegger jacket.

Bootleggers ran moonshine....that's the connection.

I had always wanted a leather jacket from Kadoya and finally found one of their Swiss Army replicas for a good price on Yahoo Japan auctions. Thought a few of you guys in here who like older reproduction jackets might appreciate it.

The weather is starting to get warm again. What temperature is your cut-off for wearing a leather jacket?

I wear leather jackets when temperature is between 5-18 celsius (approx. 41-64 in Fahrenheit). In Finland it means spring and autumn.

Depends on the lining, leather itself provides little insulation, regardless the weight or type of leather. Generally you don't wanna wear them when it is over 20 Celsius, cut off would be 25 Celsius, I believe that something like a denim jacket would suit much better at this temperature.

Jacket #1 - the zip pockets are inelegant and far too prominent.

Jacket #2 - the sleeves are narrow little stovepipes that are almost slightly too short looking and don't work well with the more casual open draped body.

Jacket #3 - someone went overboard quilting.

And that Kadoya stuff? Pass.

Lol if those are "stovepipe" I'd hate to see what you think of actual skinny-cut jackets like Rick Owens or Julius...

But I agree that the sleeves there don't go with the body style.

I think any outerwear (leather or anything else) looks really bad when it looks as if the wearer might not be able to close it, as it does especially in jacket #1. You don't have to close a jacket, but it should at least be obvious that you could if you wanted to.

Also agree that the quilting on #3 is too much.

It all depends on the jacket style - my Incarnation was ridiculous. If I lifted at all I couldn't wear it. Still an awesome jacket.

Quote:I agree. Some of these designers' pursuit for making the skinniest fitting jacket possible is not my cup of tea. You should be be able to zip the thing up without struggling and be able to move your arms and shoulders.
