    Tell us more about the difference between the words "made" and "assembled". I feel we're on the cusp of a real internet detective breakthrough here.

    Dude why don't you just get a TOJ. Drew has a style just like that, but with better details and overall design...

    Those are butt.

    holy shit man those are horrible.

    rap you really should save up for a ToJ, or at least search around the b+s forums and try to find one used in your price range. most of us here recommend ToJ so much because he offers very high quality jackets at a really reasonable price. $760 may seem like a lot, but you really are paying for the good craftsmanship and tailored fit.

    Dude, those are obscenely bad. I'm surprised you didn't try the www.leatherjacket.com store first. :foo:

    $500 is close to $700.

    theres nothing good about this jacket man, unless youre trying to look like a middle-aged dad getting ready for a mid-life crisis.

    try to find something that actually looks like it will fit decently. dont just buy something because its cheap and looks like decent leather. there are soo many other options, even in your price-range.

    Lost Worlds makes some serious high end leather jackets and the Ryder is a slim-fitting jacket. I'll admit that the pictures on the website aren't real good, but I'm not sure there is bettter quality horsehide than Lost Worlds - although it seems like buttery lambskin is the favorite of this thread. The only real "negative" to LW horsehide is that it is so thick, it literally takes a few years to break in. You may not care for the look, but do some searching and you'll see that it's highly regarded.

    this is style forum man, we're a bunch of fashionistas. theres a lot more that most of us take into consideration than just the quality of the leather.

    it seems to be highly regarded by people who arent really taking styling and fit into consideration. i did some searching and was only able to find one decent looking fit, but even that one still screams middle-aged dad to me. i will admit the leather quality does seem to be really good, but still.. why buy it if it doesnt look appealing when worn.

    Different strokes, I guess. No excuse for an ill-fitting jacket, but if the majority of jackets in this thread represent "style", god help us. I do like a few of the TOJ jackets, though.
