    Out of all these and a ribbed collar CWU-45, which would look best with untucked button ups? I usually wear my shirts un-tucked with chinos when I'm not at my biz-caz job. Thanks for your opinion.

    That jacket was the reason I was brought it up but I actually meant the 2011 DR not the MDR because I thought it'd look really good in that Dark Royal Blue, as the suede would kind of mute the color a little bit, into more of a muted Darl Royal Blue.

    That's kinda what I was thinking, just vaguely disheartened to hear the designer say he doesn't think it's one of his stronger products.

    And I wouldn't mind an MDR at some point, but that's probably not for a while.

    I still have a little time before I wanna order (probably late summer/early fall so I'll have it by the time it cools down), so I can keep mulling over it.

    I also like the T1, A1, and 2011 4-zip moto, but you can only own so many jackets.

    edit: Actually, if I went with the T1, I guess I could order sooner, since that's supposed to be a little lighter-weight than the regular leathers.

    Navy and black look great together. I never understood objections to it.

    There are purple navies and green/grey navies. The latter work better with black IMO.

    drew does not recommend black suede fwiw

    go on...
    im in need of a derby or at least a prada wingtip :devil: but im not 100% sure just yet. any recommendations?


    not every piece in a collection is a stand out, some just complement the others :teach:
    i still think youd look awesome in one. clark kent and synth do it justice, why not notwithit??

    Wasn't thinking of black suede, thinking more of a shade of blue. I already ordered my dark whiskey moto but I was actually wondering more so for a future purchase.

    Seriously, who the fuck is Jeremy Lin? I have googled it and I do not understand.


    Here's the thing: I have barely worn my collared moto. It embarrasses me to say this, but it may not have been the correct choice. There's no doubt it's a nice jacket, and I still think it looks fucking great on its hanger, but when I go out, I always just find myself throwing the bball on over whatever else I'm wearing.

    Synth, he's an undrafted NBA player who got Tim Tebow-like coverage by the media after he had a string of great games while filling in as a starter for the Knicks when Carmello Anthony got injured. And he's Asian.

    Nice! I ordered a gray MDR a couple weeks ago. Mpls is the perfect place to give these a lot of wear...

    It's only in america that people have objections to navy and black together.

    It's a great combination IMO.

    I don't like indigo jeans and black though. dunno why.
