RE: Leather Jackets
Hard to say, I don't see why not though.
Check this guide to be sure though because it's a pain to ship back if it isn't what you envisioned with regards to fit: https://www.schottnyc.com/sizing.cfm

Jacket looks sick, hopefully the fit is right...

RE: Leather Jackets
If you are in between sizes, you can order both sizes and return the one that doesnt fit.

Just bought one of these at Macy's. It went for $400, but it looks and feels amazing.

RE: Leather Jackets
Some great looks on here.

Quick question: Has anybody had any luck getting a custom fit leather jacket made down in Argentina? I'm in Buenos Aires for another couple of months, and would like to take advantage

Again going with Schott, this café racer is slim and simple, but looks good. It's less than $1k.

Jake G was wearing it in The Ememy (awesome movie btw)

RE: Leather Jackets
Winter is coming and I need a jacket. From a game/styleperspective am I better off with a leather jacket or a north face jacket? I only have about 200 bucks in the budget for this basically. From the way it looks you need like 500 bucks minimum for a decent leather jacket lol.

RE: Leather Jackets
It's that time of year again, and I'm getting the urge to grab a new leather jacket. I did some online searching at work today, and the RSD Ronin below seems like a great get, albeit a bit of an investment at $620. Anyone have experience with this jacket, or recommendations for similar, cafe racer style pieces?

RE: Leather Jackets
Any ideas where you can get a custom leather jacket, or at least one for athletic guys. I have a 6-8 inch drop so most off the rack clothing absolutely billows around the midsection. I really like that jacket seamus, do you have a link?

I haven't ordered from these guys yet but like the look of their stuff.

Aero Leather. A store called Thurston Bros. will mail you a fit jacket, you describe the stuff that needs to be adjusted, and they make the jacket to your specs. I have one and it's awesome. Hand-made in Scotland by skilled craftsmen, huge difference from off-the-rack stuff. Plus lots of options/opportunities for customization.

A classic biker-style leather jacket should end at the bottom of your belt; this is the fit thing I always see guys get wrong. If in doubt, err on the side of too short. A too-long leather jacket just looks bad and bunches up when you sit down with it zipped up. Sleeves should hit at the bottom of your wrist, a little longer if you ride a bike and you'll be leaning forward. Shoulders should not droop off your shoulders (the seam should be on the edge of your actual shoulder) and you should have a slim fit through the body.

RE: Leather Jackets
What's the consensus on a leather blazer ?

I've had one for a while, smooth black, true leather. Finally lost enough weight that I fit in it again.

Debating whether to put it in the rotation or not.

RE: Leather Jackets
I really want a leather jacket but I live in a tropical area and it was still 100F/37C today and I was sweating my fucking balls off in shorts, a tank top and sandals. Its just not to be. I have a whole closet full of suits that don't get worn nearly enough because its just a few months a year.
