I'm pleasantly surprised that this isn't 3000 dollars or something.Personally like the Barbanera version better. Contrast collar, suede body (IMO better than smooth leather), and doughnut buttons instead of snap (harder to use, but better looking and outerwear should be worn open anyway).
There's one left at The Rake in a size XL. Note that the sleeves run slim so not for guys who are very muscular.

You're saying these are not the same thing? As far as I can tell, the button flap in the pic I originally posted is the same, just bent over with use.It’s a no for me. Not a fan of the epaulettes nor the pattern design that connects the button flap with the collar. I prefer the Vanson Maverick. Edit: This screenshot is very old. It's a slim version made for the Japanese market.
For me, the epaulets kill the design. Looks like one of those jackets you used to see at Gilt.
Yeah, Schott makes some.I came across this Nudie jacket (the “Eddy” model) which is fairly inexpensive by this thread’s standards but it looks good IMO and has interesting leather. €500 retail, 300 something on sale. I like the design, simple black collared jacket without breast pocket (most collared moto jackets have one, e.g. all FCL I’ve seen), and cropped. Buffalo leather.
But it’s remarkable how different it can look depending on photos.
From Nudie’s site, kinda boxy:
From Butterscotch, where it looks best IMO, quite slim:
From MrPorter, boxy:
SSense, looks… bad? But tbh the model looks kids overweight (for a model at least) and those trousers… leather looks much more matte too for some reason.
Leather close up from MrPorter:
Any other jackets like this one? With a collar, no breast pocket, decent leather and preferrably slim.
It seems very workable in a current wardrobe so maybe msg them, I mean why not?
