    These jackets aren't meant to have 'waist suppression' in the sense that a suit jacket would have. They're meant to sit on your hips so it'd look a bit odd (and a bit like a woman's jacket) to follow the lines of your torso exactly. They're already slim as is.

    ^ true dat.

    I think Drew has said before (correct me if I'm wrong), but the TOJ style (at least for the riders) is having square shoulders with clean lines. I interpret that as slim, but masculine silhouette.

    Hey Drew does the TOJ machine keep on rolling while your away or do things come to a halt? I’m waiting on my new bomber...:slayer:

    I will keep processing orders and helping customers. Daniel will keep getting your things made and having them shipped out.

    Drew doesn't actually do anything, he just answers questions on here (sometimes) and rambles on (usually).

    Charly says too much waist suppression makes you look like a woman! :embar:

    Usually, suede is a bit stretchier/softer/more malleable than normal leather, which is why it's used for gloves and trims.

    absolutely true. You want a \/ shape, not a )( shape

    Thought my MDR does have more waist suppression than my moto, it doesn't seem to give me the )( effect...hopefully.

    Then consider the question coming from me. :embar:


    [​IMG]

    This is what happens though with a V-cut jacket on an )( shaped torso. IMO it isn't flattering. Better to show off the width of the shoulders an maintain a leaner silhouette through a suppressed waist I think - it's certainly part of what helps my altered Moto attract a lot of comments (ableit worn open).
