    :crackup: Value, SLP is also not be all end all of leathers. Probably made in the same factories as $2k jackets and you realize that ToJ is direct selling, so if a boutique bought them to sell they would cost double as much. It would be like buying direct from the bimmer factory...see how silly the analogy is. Also, replicating leather qualities is much easier than replicating automotive engineering. You don't pay BMW price for the BMW name its for superior engineering. Hedi is far too hedonistic to realize his name isn't enough to sell overpriced and underwhelming garments anymore. So, now his focus is to build the celeb hype...Mayweather to Justin Biebz and every classless buffoon in between.


    I think its just hate towards the ToJ love. I am sure charly could come and enlighten him on leathers and bimmers.


    This.

    Um no... that is terrible. But what do I know. Perhaps you aspire to be the Navy's most fashionable LSO.

    My 10 sei 0 otto jacket just arrived. I love it! It fits pretty snug, especially in the arms. I do work out regularly, but my arms are definitely not massive (around 37 centimeters/14.5 inches in a 180 cms/5'11 frame) and the upper arm bit fits like a second skin, in a size 50.

    yeah fits slim like most designer leather jackets. shoulders and upper arms are a little tight relative to waist. I think ill have to cut away the excess wool as well

    Leather feels incredible to me, but then again I've never handled any jacket from those top tier brands that are discussed here so I don't know how it compares and I can only imagine how great that a1923 jacket a few posts earlier must feel.

    Mine doesn't have wool lining, but cotton.

    Ignore the untucked shirt, it makes it look more cropped.

    What pants "not jeans" do you guys think go well with black 5-zips?

    I get sick of wearing black, and blue jeans with it but not sure what else would look good. Only idea I have is dark colored Wings + Horns chinos.

    Snagged this leather jacket at a thrift store the other day for 60 bucks. The jacket is true vintage and heavy as hell. It had those cowboy fringes on the back and arms and I got them removed today. The jacket fits me like a motha fuccen glove. Not everyday I make a cheap find like this.

    I think the bush pants would probably look good. They made them in a variety of colors.

    Just thought I'd share some pictures and thoughts on my ZB jacket that I recently picked up since there isn't much information on here about his leathers.

    I got the Overlocked High Neck Minimalist leather in a 3oz Horse. I lucked out in that I got a custom piece that was made for someone shorter so the proportions are different from stock and are more cropped (stock is too long for me in the body and sleeves since I'm pretty short). It was originally a tan color that was dyed black. I've worn it every day since I got it and I absolutely love it! Very substansial heavy leather which was super stiff initially. I could stand it up on it's own, but I can't anymore. It is breaking in so nicely and getting buttery soft in just the right places. The leather itself has some great variations in texture all over. Anyway here are some pictures (click for slightly larger pictures):

    And an x-post from another thread with some fit pics:


    I really like the sleeve lining pattern. I know it's a small detail but I have a thing for interesting linings haha. I also really like the main zippers because they feel super solid, and the zipepr chain is wavy and keeps the jacket from being just flat. Not sure if that makes any sense, but it makes it feel flow-y. Also I'm a sucker for overlock stitching. So yeah just wanted to share. After searching for the right jacket for months (I only had the budget for one that I hope will last me for many many years) I decided on this one. Fits me so nicely and is slim without being restricting. I can layer nicely with it too. It has a curved hem where the back is a bit shorter than the front. And wearing it with the neck up and the neck down gives it two totally different looks IMO which is really nice.
