    Thanks to Hard2fit and mmm for the responses. So we've got one small and one medium. @mmm Do you find that the Medium jacket hits the shoulders correctly and still maintains the tight look that's in the photo? I'm a 38, as well.

    Anybody else have a thought? All very much appreciated, thanks.

    Im 5'10, 150 and wear a 38. The Luppy in medium fits pretty much like that picture you posted. But the picture is showing the LuppyR which is a newer version of the luppy so it could fit differently but I have been a medium most diesel stuff.

    Last post re: this jacket http://yfrog.com/0xtophergrace2111j then I'll leave this dead horse alone. Again @mmm. . . I'm only 5'8", 155. Still think the medium is the way to go or will the sleeves be too long? Thanks again.

    The sleaves on mine are too long, but I think they shortened it on the new model. It has an elastic on it anyways so you should be fine.

    Honestly, these jackets go on sale pretty often and if you arent getting it for less than $350 or so I would suggest you just order one from TOJ. The quality is way better.

    Hey guys, this is a pretty generic biker jacket, but can anyone point me into the direction of getting this type of style for cheap? My budget is in the ball park of 150-300, but I'm sure there are some for 100-200 easy. The leather is so broken in (or was already soft in the first place) that the belt is dangling so loosely, that's what I'm trying to replicate. [​IMG] Uploaded with ImageShack.us [​IMG] Uploaded with ImageShack.us [​IMG] Uploaded with ImageShack.us I've seen a couple of styles resembling this but they're just too expensive, I want something cheap so I can beat it up [​IMG] I'm also a skinny guy so I'm looking for a small so that its really fitted, much like how it looks in the third picture. -Rich

    Best one I've owned but definitely not the best I've seen

    Wilson's from a thrift shop in NYC

    Elastic bottom, perfect fit IMO. Had a liner but wasn't there when I bought it.

    This is my first leather jacket. It is a RO knockoff, but I still love it.

    From what I can tell, that just looks like a Schott Perfecto biker jacket, the mainstay of rockers, punks and leather bears for the last, what, 40 years? They're all over eBay and you can find them on Craigslist, thrift stores, etc. If you don't give a shit about authenticity, Wilson's used to have them for like $200 new or less.
