    Somewhat tangential, and I don't have any sort of coherent or complete thought regarding this idea, but I like the concept of the "male gaze" and the extent to which forum members subject themselves and each other to it via WAYWT on this and other such forums.

    I don't think there is a TOJ backlash; the brand is hugely popular among styleforumners (haven't really read sufu in a while but I assume its the same over there) and its thread gathers a lot of discussion. I don't think we can classify TOJ in the "just nice clothes" category as I don't feel that category exists. Everything is linked to styles and cultural associations, it's just some are more dominant here and seen as default. With that said I agree with your assessment; a lot of people should think hard before getting leathers that have nothing to do with the rest of their wardrobes. I guess leathers are the new designers sneaker...

    Around williamsburg, you can't throw a can of PBR without hitting some weinery looking dude wearing a double rider-style jacket (mostly perfectos) that inevitably looks way too badass for him and is totally worn in an incongruous way.

    To this day, I still haven't found a leather jacket that I like.

    lol. Luckily, sneakers and leather jackets (cafe racer styles and "cowboy" styles, mostly) have been staples of my wardrobe for years. I've been wearing the same uniform for about a decade now, with the silhouette evolving with time, and with the price increasing.

    fok, what do you tend to wear your racer jackets with? i know this sounds weird but wearing collared shirts feels with my toj moto feels 'off' which eliminates a solid 30% of my tops :embar:

    ^ similar question but in regard to VTG CM. Mostly wear button ups and crewnecks would this look odd?

    I haven't worn a collared shirt except to presentations for years now. I wear sweatshirts (usually crewneck), thermals, thermal henleys, and pullover sweaters. Wearing a moto with a collared shirt reminds me of dudes who work in a bank but still want to be cool.
