I think we've established I'm no expert, but I don't see why cafe racers wouldn't work outside of denim and boots. I can see it particularly with slacks. Personally, I'll be taking a stab at wearing it with my high-waisted Cottle jawnz.On the topic of the Buco J-100 or similar board/cafe racers, can this style be worn well with trousers other than denim? I see it as a denim and boots (or sneakers) type of jacket. But I was wondering if it were more versatile than that.
Also, ideally where should the sleeves land? Base of wrist or first thumb joint or somewhere in the middle. Perhaps the answer also matters whether or not you ride?
I had my Falcon Garments made to hit a little past the wrist joint, accounting for the length being reduced due to creasing. For that I was going for a Goldblum-SLP vibe (that whole jacket was my attempt to do SLP slim but in a non-DR). The J-100 hits me at about the same point and has similarly slim arms. I suppose if the arms were wider, it might make sense to go a little longer.
But, really, do what's comfortable. And then post pics of it. And then sustain criticism for your choice. And then sell it and buy the jacket everyone tells you to buy. Is my advice.
