    I think you can order Lewis leather without the logo as well.

    ^^ a note: if you wanna ride a bike with it lewis will hold and protect you. ToJ is not a proper riding jacket.

    Depends on the leather it's made from, surely?

    As well as thickness and strength of stiching, lewis leathers are top notch for riding (and for very long time) never heard of people crashing with TOJ on and saving their skin so i don't know

    honestly, the jacket won't be used for riding purposes, purely aesthetics. I'd prefer a quality leather jacket thats well-fitted and not too heavy. How long is the wait on a TOJ?

    from my read on TOJ thread, i was under impression that they aren't taking any orders past 2013, is that wrong?

    Wear CCP on your bike!

    Seriously though, who would wear a TOJ as a protective jacket? why is this even a discussion? If you ride/rode a bike you would know dianese and other bike specific makers protect better because of all the built in plastic guards. If i were to ride again, i would not even look at "fashion" jackets as protection.

    Wasn't there some member that fell off his bike wearing TOJ calf? I know there another who got bit by a pitbull with pictures of the aftermath. This was a while ago.

    Edwins take on the super monza, The 'Further' Jacket - Though it has an emblem on the sleeve but is a 'fashion' option. Super Monzas are a heavy jacket as expected for it's primary use and it's details reflect that of a jacket intended for riding. Badass jacket though, mines 30+ years old and still going strong.

    Personally would not mind wearing blue Lewis Europa at all.

    Crossposting this from "someone should buy thread". I believe Eck just sold one of these for close to $2k?

    Augusta/A1923/A DICIANNOVEVENTITRE

    High neck leather jacket currently at ~$365. This is an insane price for it. It's a 48, so should work for a 46.

    At that price, seems very easy to justify taking a shot on it.

    Chest measurement of 42cm? If that's correct, that's not even gonna fit a size 46 :/

    Does anyone know where I can buy snap-on shearling/fur collars? Custom sized if possible.
