    TTS- All the Carol leathers I've owned or currently own are TTS.

    BTW- not sure you can have the overlock made anymore, are you referring the scarstitch (LM/2498)?

    Yes i think it is the scarstitched in horse, the one with the metal hooks. Looking at a 54 although i am more of a 52. However the measurements seem to be ok compared to other jackets i own. Would i make a big mistake if i go up a size? Compared to other fitted leathers i have measurements seem to be ok. However i don't know if this one is supposed to fit super snug?

    APC's quality is usually good but depending on the price TOJ makes a very similar jacket, hence if the jacket is around 800 just get a toj


    Brad Pitt coming through with the cool stuff, boots/shoes look like a double heel guide in donkey

    it really depends on what you are going for. i would categorize the footwear + leather jacket in to 2 categories: MC/SW&D. People will argue the semantics of this but thats not the point. Here are some examples:

    MC - if you are going for a more elegant look and very classic, you can match almost any MC favorites (alden, carmine, etc) with the leather jacket, probably wear dress pants in this category.

    SW&D - more casual but could still be sleek, here you would mostly pair with denim
    - boots - you may want to stick to the classic combat boot look and look to brands such as buttero/guidi/marsell (i heard moma on yoox is good)
    - sneakers - i am not always a fan of this but lots of folks in waywt thread go with various sneakers from ann d / raf / MMM to pair with jackets. you can use nikes as well just make sure they are not too loud in color ways.

    See spoilers for examples, both are sw&d technically but i feel the first pic is more MC
