    Hey guys, new member here (though I've been frequenting this thread for several months as a sort of reference in helping me find a decent leather jacket). I recently purchased one online and I need your eyes and opinions to help me decide whether I should keep it or continue looking. I bought two different sizes and the other one (not pictured) is too drapey on my arms and shoulders.

    I am skinny and I like to wear clothes that fit close to the body/slim fit stuff. I like the simple styling and the material on this but I am undecided whether to keep it or not because the fit is very close when zipped close and I am worried that it might not be too comfy to layer with items thicker than tees. Plus should I gain a little bit more weight then the jacket might become too tight (though I read somewhere that leather jackets stretch a little over time with wear (?)).

    Should I keep this one or continue searching?

    missed out on a toj DR because i decided to go on a holiday instead

    im thinking of going for a schott 613/618 for my perfecto needs.

    does anyone have any real experience with them? all the fit pics i can find seem to be of marlon brando lol.

    also if i am 5'5 110-115lbs should i go with their size 32 or 34?

    i would have thought i would like a leather MA1 more, but i think its a bit ugly. Maybe this style looks better in fabric.

    I wonder how this would look in wool rather than the cotton or polyester or whatever the other RO ma1 is made of.

    I like those new ricks, although I doubt I will be picking up either of these. I am surprised that the mountain jacket looks good there, because I have seen other pics that made it look unappealing. I am getting used to the snaps.

    I can see why someone would not like the mountain jacket, but what is revolting about the ma1?

    bomber jacket looks cool but I would agree with AG, leather looks cheap, thin, and flimsy. would have guessed polyurethane

    Oversized placket, exaggerated length, and the leather looks cheap across the entire line.

    The MA-1's the least offensive of all of them, but it's all pretty bad.

    How does it feel to the touch? Presumbly thick considering it's a F/W piece
