    Okay, I have the chance to get a vintage one of these:

    It will cost a fair bit but I think I may be able to trade in my Vanson jacket which has never really fit me how I wanted. This fits me ridiculously well and looks awesome. Can anyone talk me out of it?


    That is an absolutely gorgeous racer. I love the quilted padding on the shoulders.

    I never was a huge fan of quilted leather on the exterior, but I really like that jacket.

    I'll try to get a decent pic of me in it. I'm liking it a lot, but it's hard to wear it (or ride at all) right now when it's topping out at 34 every day the last week or so.

    Anybody recommend a jacket like this one below, but with a zip front? I like the band collar on this jacket- http://dynamic.forzieri.com/is/servl...-053-1x?scl=1}
    That's the classic and timeless A-1 style, my favorite flight jacket. I am still kicking myself for letting go the chance of getting La Matta's A-1 for cheap. Now, I could not find a good slim fitting version of it.

    I bought these two Flying Tiger jackets about 20 years ago when they were still made in USA for LL Bean.


    Goatskin
    Mouton collar with 100% wool fleece
    100% wool knit at wrist and waist, NO pilling.

    Have worn like iron, been all over the country, but still look new.

    inside at shoulders......wool/cashmere houndstooth.

    body and below....mohair

    I've not been looking for leather for a while now.

    Hello everybody,

    I guess you know all the TV show named Grey's Anatomy.
    In this show, there's a character who always waer a leather jacket made by Armani.
    This jacket has a particular collar that I like a lot.

    Here is a picture of Doctor Mark Sloan with his jacket:

    [​IMG]

    You can see here that it's an Armani Collezioni Black Leather Blouson Jacket :

    ... and its costs more than 2 000 dollars !!!

    So I would like to know if somebody has and idea of a similar jacket at a lower price.

    Thank you very much in advance.


    PS : Sorry for my english, I'm french.

    Not really. Assless chaps are usually the choice of durojack wearers. We've got a whole WAYWT full of them.

    I hate the fur, but the overall sillouette is beautiful (minus the belt). Reminding me of what I want:

    Steerhide, not horsehide (never understood the appeal of HH), cordovan color, mtm, and customized to exclude the chest pocket (dislike all pockets that are not simple side pockets).
