    Jeans are cool - who cares if Guitar Wolf is over. Leather pants, only if you are super duper cool. I couldn't do it.

    Leather pants are only for wear onstage, in my book. Since I'm not a rockstar, I don't have occasion to wear them. As streetwear - highly questionable.

    Love the jacket. I've been wanting a cafe racer for a while now.

    1. I don't smile. At most I smirk.
    2. I am smirking in the picture.
    3. I kinda do look like I could be part of a boy-band, except that the scars on my face, along with my cheeky-asshole look disqualify me.
    4. I never put more "product" in my hair than that. If I did it would be dangerous.
    5. You're banned.

    How do you like me the lamb now?.

    I wore The Jacket out to a bar last night with a black Gap "hoodie" under it, 517s and my Carolina jump boots. I thought it might be too much, and/or I might be subject to ridicule (especially since it looks almost brand new), but it was fine. I even got the nod (down-nod) from a punk rocker guy who was in there in a lightly studded Schott jacket. I like this thing; I could easily see getting addicted to leather jackets. When I get it broken in more and after Japan, I am going to send it in to have a double zipper put in because when i sit the bottom front jams into my junk and makes the front ride up - bad if I actually ride a bike with it on, and possibly a front zippered "gun pocket".

    FYI, The guy where I bought it told me that Vanson will put front pockets into a pocketless model like the Comet for something like 30 a side, which seems insanely cheap to me. They also do full custom for not a whole lot more money than this one cost.

    A friend of mine has the Guitar Wolf jeans. I haven't seen him since he's bought the jeans, so I dont know how they fit IRL. I was thinking about getting a pair but they look a little too high-rise, full-cut for me. I love GW but I just can't imagine myself wearing them exclusively like I would want. ringring, compare them to 1947 Levi's, will you? [​IMG]

    Sorry, I missed this. Yeah, it's a little longer in the back, and more importantly the jacket is longer overall than most of the cafe racer style jackets are. I tried on a Comet model and it was much shorter.

    The Wolfs are looser through the leg than LVC 47s. They aren't high rise. Just a 'regular' fit. A bit like a straight leg Reg Ralph (similar length rise). Loads of nice details.

    Ouch. Shoreman, need I bring up your track jacket picture and subject it to comparisons? Or perhaps the boardroom pic?

    You guys are never getting a full picture of me. No matter what it looked like, I'd never live it down. [​IMG]

    Any idea if I can take a look at them in person in Japan? If so, where? Thanks for the info, I really like those.

    Uh, no. Â [​IMG] Hey, Morrissey's a cool guy, who's to say it's not a compliment? That is a badass jacket, and Morrissey could not pull it off. He'd prefer a denim jacket with a big iron-on picture of himself on the back.

    Any suggestions for a light leather jacket similar to the Schott 654 but with a regular collar instead of a snap collar? Would really appreciate some recommendations.

    If you are buying a leather jacket to look cool, any of the previous mentioned jackets will fit the bill.

    However, if you really are going to get yourself a motorcycle, take the MSF beginner rider course, please, before you end up dead.


    Also, if a "motorcycle" jacket does not have armor in it, it is a FASHION statement, NOT a piece of legitimate safety gear, regardless of the weight of the leather.


    Here is the jacket I wear when I choose leather:

    http://britishmotorcyclegear.com/jackets/montana-jacket.html


    If you are going to get a jacket for riding, get one with CE approved shoulder and elbow armor, and a CE approved backpad. A CE approved chest protector would be good too, although not as readily available.


    If you want to know anything else about what to wear when you ride to stay alive in the event of a crash, I can point you in the right direction. If you want a jacket just for fashion, then I've no doubt that you are in far, far better hands than mine on this forum.


    Good luck and think twice about getting a motorcycle. If you don't already ride, it's a bad habit to start, IMO.
