    you have 15.35 inch shoulders? that's like XXS territory. why is your sleeve length so long in comparison to everything else?

    I don't really know about my shoulders.. but one of my jackets has 41cm and it's not really "fitted".. and leather would also stretch so I thought 39cm would be good.. it's about the same size rick owens xs leather comes. The sleeves are with cuffs so I thought they should stack a little.. dunno maybe really too long?

    i'm 5'7" 130 lbs and those measurements would suit me good as well, the sleeves are too long though and going up half an inch or so in the shoulders wouldn't hurt. the sleeves on my TOJ are 23.5 inches and they hit about the bottom of my palms. you may be lankier than me, but i would imagine 67 CMs would be a bit too long, even if they are ribbed and you plan for them to stack.

    Here's a rare color from CCP- I believe it is the current season's version of the gloveless hi neck in bison.

    What is the fascination with extremely thick leathers? They don't necessarily look better, and they are less comfortable. I almost always pick my medium to thin lamb leathers over my thick calf leather (which is still a great jacket).

    It's just a different look, thin lamb is drapey but a thick calf/horsehide has an almost "plated" look that is quite cool on its own.

    cuz no one wants a cheap plasticky feel to a leather jacket?

    I mean I understand your point of view, but I think its kind of a waste if you buy one of those silky/extremely light ones.



    Plus, wearing something built like a tank is just plain sick.

    :foo:

    No one else likes that either. Leather can be nice or garbage whether it is thick or thin -- you know this already and are plainly jerking my chain. :inlove:


    That makes sense. As I said, I have a thicker leather that I am into sometimes.

    I suspect your uncontrol x ToJ will be thick/plated style and will look right that way.

    Actually it's lamb leather so it shouldn't, though I suspect the lapels (anaconda) will be stiff.
