    Anyone have any experience with BLK DNM DR #5? I saw one posted a few pages back but wanted to hear some other opinions.

    I have fallen in love with this J. Crew leather jacket (the Stockton Racer) but it is out of my price range (it's $900). Anyone familiar with a similar jacket for less? Schott has some close but they aren't distressed which is one of the main reasons I love the look of this one.

    have you considered maybe buying the schott and...I don't know...just wearing it?

    Go roll down a hill a couple times and it will look like that.

    ^ agree with this; you can literally beat up your leather and it'll look like that in under a year. will be cheaper as well

    Can anyone recommend a nice slim fitting Schott or do they all fit a bit boxy?

    Fwiw, I tried this jacket on in person.
    The cut is boxy and the leather is really not that nice in feel or look (at least no where near $900 nice).
    I'm tall and slim and had considered the MT size available online.
    I think you could do so much better for $900 or significantly better for less.
