are there any fit pics available?
I will try to get some taken. Seriously though, no promises. I am terrible both in pictures, and taking pictures. Sigh.
I mean, thats a good thing isnt it? No one wants a photoshop masturbation of a photo. Just want to see how the jacket drapes basically, all this leather nerd stuff of X.XX oz doesnt really mean anything to me, but when I see the leather on a human body I can tell if its too thick/thin, too slim for the leather or whatever.
Also am very interested in how the sleeves fit, I find alot of brands do a baggy sleeve on moto/rider jackets which I just hate personally.
Ill use our beloved TOJ as an example
something like that would be perfect, like taken with an iPhone in 30 seconds. Alot of clothing looks good beautifully splayed on a white canvas or on a hanger (CCP, Falcon jackets, the entire "goth ninja" aesthetic... ) but underwhelms when actually worn.
No such thing. I mean, I could take a snap, but it could look really good or really bad, depending on any number of factors. Have you ever paused a movie and all these great looking people look super awkward with wierd facial expressions? That's photography. Photography, including things that look like "snaps", are typically far from that.
I can tell you for a fact that the arms are not baggy. In fact, anyone who tried on the first samples (@notwithit ?) can tell you that the sleeves were like, blood pressure tight. I adjusted the measurement so that guys who regular musculature, but hardly built, can wear the jacket comfortably.
Falcon jackets are just like the ToJ patterns, more or less. Just fwiw.
Oh, ffs, here is a snap of the me in the moto. I am 5'11" with sloped shoudlers and have a pretty typical "works out and eats carbs" physique: 40.5" chest, 33" waist, 175 lbs.
No, there will be no topless pics. For that, I need to eat fewer carbs and do more abs.
Thanks. Fit looks great.
Yeah, my recollection was that the size 40 - at least the one I tried on at the New York trunk show, which I think was an early prototype - was maybe a size big in the shoulders, chest, and midsecton but hella tight in the arms. Glad to hear they've loosened up a bit in the final pattern.
I noticed that the ToJ sleeve was kind of a funny hybrid in terms of shape. Some jackets have straight sleeves, some jackets have curved sleeves contoured to fit the elbow when the arm is slightly bent. ToJ sleeves were curved along the outer seam but straight along the inner seam. In other words, instead of || or )), they were more like |). Maybe not that extreme, but I'm working with a couple of ASCII characters here. Anyway, I ended up having the sleeves taken in on my first ToJ jacket at the upper arm because they were too baggy, and I ended up having the sleeves tapered toward the cuff on my other ToJ jacket because toward the end they started making the cuff openings weirdly wide. I'm not sure off the top of my head which sleeve pattern the Luxire + SF jacket has - ||, )), or |) - but the prototype I tried on definitely wasn't loose anywhere in the sleeves.
For real bike jackets, we can add abrasion resistance/kevlar fabric at elbow and shoulder joints. These fabrics are sourced from Schoeller, Switzerland and are of the highest quality.
Alot of rider jackets have the l) shape. The Junya x Vanson, SLP rider both come to mind. Im not a big fan of it either
Another call for a standard collared moto pattern.
I'm looking into it. No promises, but I am looking into it.
The black cafe racer jacket is really tempting. I'd probably remove the chest zippers though.
People who have ordered MTM leather jackets before, what would you have done differently on your first order? Does leather "give" over time, i.e. should I order sleeves slightly tighter in order for them to mold to my contours over time? I own one leather jacket and it's RTW and it's from before I knew about Styleforum so let's not mention it's fit.
