    ACG are usually a good value. Haven't handled this style but they're very well reviewed.

    They are. Stop talking out of your ass.

    Bicep / arm measurements seemed too tight for me, really like the design / been wanting a green leather but didn't want to try it without being able to try on first

    Only other green leather options now are the Yang Li (too aggressive for me I wouldn't have the wardrobe), Band of Outsiders leather (leather is paper thin and every worn BoO jacket doesn't look that good) and Plokhov one but I can't fit my arms into his leathers. Have you seen any other green ones? Wish TOJ had a dark green leather still

    the thing with the yang li jacket is you wouldn't want any other aggressive pieces when wearing it. plain white t/button up, black pants, black shoes.

    At 70% off, it's a good deal. I've never been a fan of the collar tho.

    I'm not too sure about it either, but it's kind of growing on me. I think it looks especially good from behind.

    Distorb,

    Do you like the pockets that high/big? Looks like you can fit two iPads in there.

    Remove the two buttons by the collar and hack off the collar itself with a pair of garden shears, and it might look pretty sweet.
    yes
