    +1-- love the asymmetrical zip. your jacket is very similar to the lewis leathers super monza (http://www.lewisleathers.com/gallery...no_445_2.html), which is probably my favorite biker jacket.

    you might want to consider getting the sleeves slimmed, since they appear to be quite generously cut relative to the body. though be aware of how that might affect the stacking marks running down the arms...

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

    that looks really good on you.

    yup this is my favorite model. i was very pleased to find this on ebay. i really didn't want to dish out 1000USD for the lewis leathers one. as for the sleeves, i actually dont have the jacket yet..those are the auction photos. but yes that is a super monza. the seller noted that the jacket is directly from the 70s, not a repro. i'm pretty sure that is accurate after looking up the brand TT leathers.

    I love this color, leather, and the fact that it is perforated in places. Would love this in a nice lightweight spring bomber style.

    Dislike length and anything with chest pockets.


    For some reason I thought this would be super expensive but at $1200 it really isn't high priced at all.

    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.

    Thank you, I actually did find one at a Local Leather Company in town. Its the exact style I want @ 110 bux. They're special ordering one for me (I'm slim). Can't wait to get it [​IMG]

    Very nice and 1200 USD retail is not bad at all. Wish TOJ would something similar

    I'm gonna buck the trend and say those CCP leathers are just TOO much.. . I'd feel like the jacket was wearing ME, they look (and maybe feel) more like a straight jacket than a leather. CCP fencing, however...

    I could pull it off. The fencing is really nice but those high neck are the CCP concept embodied in one jacket. Within the next 5 years I fully intend to own one.
