    I was browsing through Yoox, and I came across a few leather jackets that potentially look interesting - wanted to post here and get your thoughts about them.

    All 3 of these hover in the mid $400 range.


    These first two come from a Yoox no-name brand called Vintage De Luxe (haha).

    And this one is from another brand I can't find any info on called Jey Cole Man

    I am looking at getting a decent, but moderately priced leather to start things off. Currently TOJ doesn't have any of the styles that I like - extremely minimal/sleek in the vein of Attachment, Incarnation, Devoa (however I just don't have baller income yet).

    A few pages back, Tellure modified a jacket from 10Sei0Otto which I think is really nice (and I found it online in my size!) :

    And Yoox also has this one from 10Sei0Otto:

    All things being equal, which would you guys head in the direction of?

    Really sorry for being pic-heavy and asking such a generic question - I just need some advice/help since this is a fairly large purchase for me. I really appreciate any help you'd be willing to offer.

    Return shipping is only $6 so it might be worth your while to just buy a few and return them if it doesn't work out.

    All the fit pics of 10sei0otto leather jackets I've seen look kinda boxy and doesn't seem to have a nice fitting cut.
    This one looks promising, looking forward to seeing how it looks worn.

    The first one looks fine but it would need a closer look to the leather quality.

    Hey guys, sorry for posting this as it might be in the wrong thread:

    But does anyone know of a good leather polish (black) for leather jackets? Thank you so much

    Nice! It looks similar to A1923's design.

    Yeah, just hesitant on the light gray suede...seems much less versatile as a jacket

    I bought this one during the sales:

    Not as good as the incredible pieces I see in this thread but I'm really happy for $400 (instead of $800).

    I imagine your chest circumference isnt 17" haha From what I've seen, and after talking to several people that wear it, youll want to size up 1 if you're on the border. For example, if you have a 40.5" chest, get a 52. If you have a 39.5" chest, a 50 would work, but be very slim. Also, since you have larger biceps, a size up probably makes the most sense considering their sleeves are also very slim.

    Picked up this MMM fw07 jacket. Once I give it a rubdown with Lexol and get the sleeves shortened an inch or so it should be great, love the ridiculous '70's collar.
