    I've been wanting an all condition type black leather jacket for a while now. Originally I was interested in a belstaff but being from southern CA I think it's just to bulky. Looking for something similar to the one Chris Pine has in Star Trek on the motorcycle, light weight leather, short, not much of a collar, no elastic bands on the waist, slim fit, no bulky pockets-- [​IMG] screenshot from SNL I'm not a leather or outerwear type guy usually so I wouldnt know what to begin to look at, suggestions?

    diesel always puts lots of those types out for not too high of a price.

    I would check out a higher quality vintage store and scope out for a worn in leather jacket.

    I'm looking for a similar style of leather motorcycle jacket to the one featured in the movie:

    [​IMG]

    I'm looking for something slim-fitting, sleek, collarless or banc collared, and with small pockets on the chest. Nothing too flashy. I found this one at ZARA a while back, but it was brown. A really nice feature about the ZARA jacket is that the shoulders are quilted. So, hopefully there's one with similar stitching/finishing around the shoulders and elbows. Seeing as how winter is almost over, I'd prefer to spend $300 USD or less.

    Pine wore a Diesel jacket in that scene, and they're still selling it, I think. A few seconds on Google should turn up the ordering information.
