    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I know by now koy has already made his decision, but I think this suggestion is a bit silly. ToJ is great and all, but it's not like it's the only leather worth owning. Especially when an Acne leather is selling brand-new for a lower price than a new ToJ, and especially when it fits as well as that.

    The one I tried on actually didn't have the placket, tassels and D-rings, but I decided against because of:
    - The collar was kinda meh (the snap-strap was awkwardly long with two buttons and there was a loop you had to put it through to button them both)
    - Pointless super-short zipper on left sleeve (no pocket or anything, just a zipper with fabric underneath)
    - Wanted a coat more than a leather-jacket and will get more use out of the coat too

    Leather was damn nice though, and I kinda liked the suede-details (note: there was a non-suede-patch on the other shoulder as well, so it wasn't completely random, and then it was the same thing in reverse with the elbow-patches)
    Also on the plus side is that I now know pretty much perfect measurements when I'm gonna look for second-hand tojs [​IMG]

    Eh, to each his own. I thought those details were alright.

    The problem with the Acne leather for me is that there's no detail on the hem, so you've got this super-heavy upper half and a very dainty bottom half. Doesn't work.

    I kinda like the buckles on the side as well as the dangling zipper pull. There's also a panel on the lower back that seems to be a different, grainier kind of leather, which lends a bit more interest to the lower half. It seems balanced enough to me, but I can see why it's not everyone's ideal moto jacket.
