    ^ thanks synth. I'll check out the TOJ thread. I like the fur collar with the elastic cuffs, the A2 is probably a good call. ideally a leather that's not too heavy or thick.

    A2 is awesome as well as CWU and older TOJ bomber style jackets but isn't wearing fur in California a bit weird?

    some cool bombers that are on yoox atm

    well, the jacket would really look a lot better if you didn't wear your jeans so low. maybe the reason why bradt is saying it looks too short? personally i think it looks really nice, but i think it gets thrown off w the way your jeans are worn

    Hah, the pants are like too sizes too big on me (33) and falling off, and that shirt is too short. Basically a fail outfit that I just threw the jacket over. I took a better pic today:

    Shirt's still kinda short but that's irrelevant. I'm leaning towards keeping the jacket tbh, looks really sleek in person without being in-your-face leather, its just expensive even at yoox price so I'm sure I'll go back and forth for weeks. I tried it on with a knit and an oxford and both looked really good (though the oxford stuck out the bottom a little more than I'd like), so you can pretty much wear it with anything which is a huge plus.

    i think it looks ok, but why dont you post a zipped fit again? Honestly, I don't dig it, but I really hate bomber leathers so I don't want to dissuade you. I think its boring and nothing particularly draws me towards it. Maybe, its cuz you don't want it to be too aggressive, but I think a decent rider can be that without being all up in your shit.

    Honestly looking at photos I think I'd agree with you Lane, but it doesn't look boring in person - it's really flashy, although I guess part of that might be the shine? which will go away. The Rick bomber I had was boring in person. I don't know how often I'd wear it like this but here it is zipped (I swear my jeans aren't nearly as tight as they look here):

    The collar is too stumpy and short compared to the ribbing, I think. The shape is pretty blah too, I guess. It doesn't look like it's worth the designer premium, in my eyes.

    I'll second this and say that you should return and find a more avant garde leather that suits your other wardrobe pieces.

    The leather is pretty uninspirational. How much did you pay again? I think you should just get yourself measured and pick up a minimalist moto, or a 2-zip moto, or UMDR etc.
