    Agreed. Only thing I'd change would be to get rid of that arm zipper entirely and change the zipper toggles. I like the plain YKK / MRS style zipper pulls.

    Would probably purchase one for myself. What are they lined with?

    You would need the arms zipper. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to get your hands to the wrist. These are motorcycle jackets. The MMM 5-zip is a bastardized version. It has bells sleeves. Real motorcycle jackets have tight sleeve ends for functionality.

    To be fit perfectly frank, what designer collaborations have really done is to expose the fashion consumer to iconic designs by the use of attractive styling. The Lewis Leathers, Vanson, and Aero collaborations for Junya and Nigel Cabourn are all remarkably close to the originals.

    I think they were referring to that single zipper on the forearm of the left sleeve.

    Yeah, this - was referring to the pocket on the left forearm. The MMM 5-zip has zippers at the sleeve opening, btw.

    Yeah, my bad. And yes, I have a Margiela 5-zip. I was mistakenly just pointing out that the sleeves on those are atypical of motorcycle jackets.

    I kind of like them. I'm not too picky with zipper pulls. I'd go with standard, but not the ball and chain.

    You guys have any idea where I could find pics of cool leather vests? Copping from abroad is nigh impossible here atm (fucking customs) but I wanna see if I can have a guy (who has made leather for me in the past) try and replicate a leather vest. I know I want that, but that´s it xp
    If anyone knows of some interesting ones from good brands I´d appreciate it. I´ll look for some in the meantime.

    Have none of the vests in this entire thread grabbed you?
    Instead of searching for a cool leather vest, find a cool vest and have hime make it in leather, ya dig?

    I didn´t remember seeing many vests here and I forgot it´s easy to just look at the pics in the thread. Lazy bum, I know. I´ll do that. Thanks.
    What I was thinking (that actually just came to mind) was that I wanted something biker-ish, but not extremely traditional (maybe Julius?), hence the asking for general recs.

    Oops; was supposed to be a hyperlink there.
    Check out the vest thread for inspiration.
