    dislike the cut, and they need a different model. For some reason I always see cafe racers in stock photos and they've put the model into a jacket one size too large, so the sleeves begin to well on the hands and the whole thing loses it's shape. Rider's jackets are to accentuate the torso - if you have a good drop between chest to waist, you'll look like superman, and if you're just skinny, you will look skinny, tall and cool. That guy in the pics looks none of the above.

    The leather looks pretty eh, you can tell by the fall of the leather and the creasing it's making that it's very thin, very soft - not traits that good calfskin should have. Any good leather has real inky depthness to it.

    You seriously think he could fit into a smaller jacket? That thing is pretty fucking snug. It fits him well, just the sleeves are a little long.

    he probably couldn't, but the sleeves are too long, and they are a bit wide. Granted, the flimsy leather accentuates it more...
    If the fit is attractive though, one could go for Epaulet's Schott jacket, it's not much more and fits just like that. The leather is really thick full grain calf as well, so it has a totally different air of quality.

    I like the way that fits him, the sleeves are just a bit too long... i think if it was zipped it would be a lot tighter looking on him. I agree about the quality though, it doesn't look that great.

    Dang, I was really hoping this jacket would be a good deal for the money. I do want thin but I want good quality too.

    What is this "Epaulet's Schott jacket"?

    Ok there are some other jackets maybe you all can take a look and give an opinion like you just did (thank you btw). Now keep in mind, I'm chubby. I do NOT have a small waist and I'm not skinny by any means. I'm not fat or look awful but I'm an average joe.

    I own the Fight Club jacket from Soul Revolver. The leather is indeed very thin and of average quality. On the other hand I believe Soul Revolver makes the exact same models in a heavy duty leather specifically for motorcycle riding (more expensive of course).

    Ahh an actual owner, can you please give me a description of how the leather feels to the touch? I do want thin since I want it to drape and not look bulky or thick but I want it to feel somewhat soft. How is the quality of the jacket overall? Are you satisfied?

    I think you're attributing to size what's really just a problem with the cut. It's actually not very slim, but the shoulders are in the right place, and it all looks terrible because the leather's really papery. Really, the leather looks pretty bad in most of their pictures.

    The leather feels quite thin and smooth to the touch, once you break it in, it obviously takes on more character. It fits the way you would expect it to, it's not bulky at all and is definitely a fashion jacket and not a practical jacket as far as leather jackets goes.

    Overall it's decent enough for the price, very basic.

    Thank you. Good texture? Or at least better than the stuff at mall stores or jcpenney..
