    Looks a little snug zipped up. Perhaps posture?

    I'm curious what you guys think of jacket style vs body / head proportions. For instance, if your head is large in proportion to your body, would you want something more like a bomber (big collar) than a moto? Are certain styles better if you have a long torso?
    Maybe I'm overthinking this.

    I think proportions do play a part in the overall aesthetics of the outfit. Would love to hear Drew's take on this although I slightly remember him or someone else discussing this topic before.

    IMO neck length matters too. If your neck is long band collar will not look good-> it will only accentuate the neck. And this might be just my experience but moto style leathers curve down along the shoulder line so it will make the shoulder look little narrower than reality.

    Thank you Drew. I come from the country where the only male designer (RIP Andre Kim) in the nation was ridiculed for decades until his passing away. I did not come to the US with a sole goal of becoming a designer but I thought, maybe, maybe I can learn about how things work in this industry. In between the awe-inducing kids (90% of whom created their works through weed & shit) and instructors thinking I would be (should be! they said,) the new Philip Lim I really could not find the meaning of staying there. You are the first and only person who actually understands how I feel, even though I never shared my thoughts with you. This makes me feel so happy to know someone like you, but at the same time sad that no one else does it like you.
    I dunno if I start to itch for practical arts again, I might go back to the college of design but for now Imma concentrate on my major. Its just that my heart is so numb for that direction right now

    So I'm kind of starting to get into boots. So I see the standard for SF is wolverines. I just browsed the site, what kind do people usually get? The work boots look too workish and the outdoor look too outdoorish. they don't look casual enough. I'm looking for something like malujais, what kind are his?

    Yeah...ToJ fever is totally a thing. I look at the site and go, "Oh, MDR looks very cool. But the A-2 has that awesome shearling collar. Then again the CWU-45 is nice as well, but maybe a collared moto might be better." Then I check my bank account and reality sets in.

    I don't know what kind Malujai is wearing but the 1000 mile boot is what most people on here get. There is a thread on it.

    Just fell for the classic last minute alterations after seeing the new peacoat fits. Fingers crossed it's not too late.

    It's almost Friday! Which means it's almost shipping-confirmation-email-checking-time.
