That jacket would look great with a pinhead mask from hellraiser
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?
More new RO leather.
Mountain jacket, texture lamb body w/ calf sleeves.
I like that one most out of the new RO leathers
these new RO's look bad and somehow even the material looks not nice. cheap and plastic looking leather.
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.
Good god, new rick is atrocious.
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.
the leather on the ma-1 is very nice in person, rubberized lamb
How does it feel to the touch? Presumbly thick considering it's a F/W piece
