more distinctive? Or because 2 zip is plain vanilla too boring?

I wouldn't say its boring. It's a cleaner look, but not boring at all.
It's a matter of personal taste (daah). Get what you perfer.

I'm keen on getting peoples opinion on the hemline.
Am I the only one who perfers the moto without one?

3-zip/cafe racer, best of both worlds. In hindsight I should have asked for a single chest pocket but I quite like the sparseness of my 2 zip

none of these things you guys are talking about are available, because they've been tried and are not as good as the 4-zip.

Can you guys post some measurements for the VTG DR sample for sale? I'm interested, but really need to know some exact measurements first.

Guys, I'm thinking of a 2011 black lamb moto. Whats the consensus on 2-zip vs 4-zip?
Also, would wearing a shirt inside be weird with that type of collar? A casual oxford, not a tucked in dress shirt btw.
Thanks.

hope this answers your questions

^ Creases/wrinkling at the arms looks seriously awesome.

Also demonstrates that an untucked button-front shirt looks fine under a black 4-zip.

None of the economics professors I know could tell you either. Throwing around terms from freshman economics does not an economist make


PhD at Northwestern, I assume? I'm finishing my B.A. in Econ. there right now.

Can't wait for some new TOJ jackets. I'll be graduating from college in 2.5 months and I think a new leather would be a prime grad present to myself.

It's no wonder Drew recs the 4-zip--it's eye-catching-swagalicious--and one of his best offerings.

We're just lucky that he allows a 2-zip option.

Personally, I like the 2-zip b/c it has a "cleaner" look with less hardware. For example, I think Aeglus' picture would also look great w/o the 2 top zips, but it also looks great now. Realistically, can't really go wrong, imo.
