    Jacket #1 - the zip pockets are inelegant and far too prominent.

    Jacket #2 - the sleeves are narrow little stovepipes that are almost slightly too short looking and don't work well with the more casual open draped body.

    Jacket #3 - someone went overboard quilting.

    And that Kadoya stuff? Pass.

    Lol if those are "stovepipe" I'd hate to see what you think of actual skinny-cut jackets like Rick Owens or Julius...

    But I agree that the sleeves there don't go with the body style.

    I think any outerwear (leather or anything else) looks really bad when it looks as if the wearer might not be able to close it, as it does especially in jacket #1. You don't have to close a jacket, but it should at least be obvious that you could if you wanted to.

    Also agree that the quilting on #3 is too much.

    It all depends on the jacket style - my Incarnation was ridiculous. If I lifted at all I couldn't wear it. Still an awesome jacket.

    Quote:I agree. Some of these designers' pursuit for making the skinniest fitting jacket possible is not my cup of tea. You should be be able to zip the thing up without struggling and be able to move your arms and shoulders.

    ^ Differences are in the type of leather and leather treatment. LC I think is washed lambskin, no idea about LVT. Both are newer product codes.

    Stooges is a well-known classic design that I find much better than equivalents from Saint Laurent Paris and the like. If you're set on buying new then not much you can do about the price. I'm happy to buy on the secondary market where you can find them in excellent condition around USD 600-700 and upward.

    LC seems to be goat. Not sure what LVT, I'm guessing some sort of treated lamb, but it looks vey plastic-y.

    don't pay 1800e for RO, not worth it.

    Rick Owens is a good brand but not worth that price. I'd say snoop around ebay and wait for a stooges jacket to show up.

    Any ideas where i could get a jacket similar to this one ?
    [​IMG]

    What I want is an uderstated biker jacket and by that I mean small lapels, no belt and in general the one that doesn't scream rock star or a biker gang. It has to be slim fitting too. Something similar to the one that Ryan is wearing would be perfect. Price range no more than 400-500 euros. Any brand recommendations in that price range ? Im still trying to figure out whether I want a bomber or a biker. So far I've looked at AllSaints and some other brands but Im open to new suggestions and Im sure you guys can point me into new direction.
    Thanks in advance

    As long as we're discussing Stooges...

    One of my biggest concerns about it is the cuffs, because they are zipped and not knit, will slip over my wrists (I have pretty skinny wrists). Anyone with Stooges want to comment? I just haven't had an opportunity to go hunt one down in Barney's or someplace and try it on.

    Also poster above: tbh from what you describe the RO Stooges would do fine for you. No labels, no weird treatment (even blistered looks understated), no flashy zippers, very slim fitting, no belt). You should be able to find one on the secondary market for that price range.

    Stooges has stupidly long arms, I had mine tailored. Looks really bad as-is, I don't think it's a great look..

    From the sleeve head or the end? My Julius goes to my finger tips. Not sure where to go get it tailored
