    I don't really have any interest in another DR but just looking at the Lost World's Speed Demon image it's definitely a beautiful jacket, I just kind of want to see some fit pics of it. It looks plenty trim despite the dude's rants about tight fitting jackets being bad, but I'm guessing his rants are mostly aimed at cheap leathers?

    His rants are aimed at high priced fashion jackets which Stu sees as impractical. Many of his designs are trim, but still designed to be functional. Because he uses mainly very heavy leathers, there has got to be some room to allow for movement. Many fashion leathers get away with very tight patterns by using lighter, more flexible materials.

    That's a nice-looking jacket, I agree.

    Understand that Stu is both over the top with his rants and brilliant in his jacket construction. His website reads like satire, but it's all real. No, I don't think anyone believes that a lot of SLP jackets are being worn on bikes, but he needs a marketing foil... it's just part of his schtick.

    I have only 1 leather jacket so far thus I have little knowledge on what is considered good and what's not. My current one is TOJ. I really like it and I can see clear difference when compared with cheap ones people wear. I'm looking to purchase another leather, possible a rider jacket. And I'm in a bit of a dilemma whether I should get BLK DNM 5 or TOJ DR which I will be required to wait a couple of months. I don't mind waiting since I will probably wear it during the winter, certainly not anytime soon. Does anyone have any experience with BLK DNM leather jackets and how are they when compared with TOJ?
    I would appreciate it if anyone can suggest me something else within the same price range (~1000 USD) but could be a bit more

    I have gained weight since the time I got it. I rarely wear it now but I still put it on when I want a lighter jacket.

    I do like the way the lamb is aging on this jacket, as shown in the bottom picture.

    I just picked up this Layer 0 Leather in Buffalo last week (From Layers London). Excuse the pics, they are from the store, too lazy to take my own.

    Glad to see people discussing more "dad" jacket brands. My grail jacket is actually Lost Worlds design. :embar:

    I've noticed a difference between this picture and their website. Their web site has what looks like a brown material strip on the outside of the front zips (which looks aweful), whereas this picture looks like either black material or not there.

    Took a picture of the inside too

    It's their Trojan jacket, made with a limited stock of Finnish moosehide they had a while back. They've been sold out for a while now.
