    Just a history/detail question here: What's the logic behind sleeve zip locations (on top of versus below the forearm)?

    I could be wrong but i feel it’s less based in logic and more based in influences.

    Schott/American leathers have pretty much always had their zips on the back of the sleeves as i recall, and Lewis/British leathers had theirs on the sides

    So i think it just is indicative of who a designer/brand has been influenced by/is seeking to reference

    I could be talking out of my ass so if so I’m sorry in advance
