    We're for sure doing this in Japanese Slimfit. However, we may need to do it in standard fit as well...we'll see.

    This is a popular misconception. A slim fit actually means that the shoulders and chest are narrowing, and the jacket is more of a straight cut. Motorcycle jackets traditionally have a very pronounced V shape, with a tightmidsection, and more room in the chest and shoulders and back to accomodate riding. If you are a yoked out dude with a classic V-shape, a traditional jacket will probably fit you well.

    But would a traditional jacket have the higher armholes and slimmer bicep area as discussed with this Japanese slim fit?

    (and just to state that I am in for both this DR as well as the cafe moto)

    Seriously thinking about getting it in the same waxed blue as my arrow moto. II'd a color I'd wear all the time. Or maybe I'd opt for a marine blue...
