    I have one of those early TOJ calf. I tried to break it in. Wore it dozens of times, could barely bend my elbows, and eventually gave up on it. [​IMG]

    Developed folds and a little bit of easiness in the articulation areas but is still stiff as a mofo

    Thats what I think too! Are your Schotts same size? Mine are both x-large. I can wear my 626vn only with t-shirt or thin collared shirt under which is ok, because it is primarly my summer jacket. If I want to layer for example denim shirt + henley I use 519.

    My 626vn is a large and is pretty tight, but I sized down to a medium in the 519 after initially ordering a large. The chest measurement seemed unusually big and my shoulders didn't fit the jacket quite right.. very happy with it. Honestly the 519 is the only jacket I reach for now because it just works so well for me, it's one of those pieces of clothing where you just know it will be in your wardrobe for years

    Keep in mind that I specifically asked for the older, thicker and glossier calf. Falcon's standard calf is thinner and more matte.

    Once you nail your measurements it's hard to go back to RTW.

    Jacket Hide is Lambskin but is hefty but not stiff at all even after taking out of storage. Leather is very supple. When I think lamb I always think smooth and lightweight. Not the case with this jacket which is good.

    Unfortunately they don't make this piece anymore. For reference the newer styles in same style leather with chrome hardware and without the articulated panels was on 40% sale In select outlets for 1300$. That should give you an idea.

    Same jacket in silver hardware sold here for 700$. That was a steal http://www.styleforum.net/t/528515/100-genuine-burberry-brit-biker-jacket#post_8717732

    That's the prorsum version. Same seller as the link sold one for 1500$ here. I've tried that on and it's cut way slimmer and the front is a bit cropped. I' prefer the Brit version to be honest

    The prorsum does. The Brit is at level with buckle if not lower. Cropped jackets are a deal breaker too for me

    Dude is definitely in prorsum, that is one of the best leathers they made but it was super cropped

    I've tried on that prorsum moto jacket takata san is sporting and the leather is indistinguishable from the older brits. The only difference are the prorsum hardware which is identical. The lining though is a different color purplish black. I had the option of buying that one but the front was too cropped for my liking. Me and my wife decided on the phantom blacked out hardware moto instead.
