    I think the buttons look good, a nice change from zips.

    Just my opinion but often a short style jacket looks better with a zip than with buttons and a long style often
    seems happier with a zip front but then again just an opinion Major.
    Inside pockets are always good for mobile phone, cigarettes, cash etc.

    One thing for sure however, leather jackets can get very warm in a pub after a few pints and over the years have developed a strange habit of vanishing!

    Got a few with zippers - that's why I fancy buttons this time.

    If you look at alot of vintage pics of close-fitting buttoned leathers, the bottom couple of buttons are usually undone - a great comfort feature for sitting down (in a cockpit, in a car, or in the pub!!), which you simply can't do with a zip. That's my excuse anyway!

    Oh yes, and a golden rule - NEVER take your jacket off in the pub (if you still wish to own it at home time...)!!

The Stuarts we have in stock still have the button closure on the chest. Input?
    I think that a horizontal double-welted chest pocket would be better than a zipper. It's keeping the number of different elements down - I suspect that's why a button was used.

    My preference would be to lose the chest pocket, and install a pair of inside pockets instead.

    I prefer the clean look with buttons, such as one finds on the Teamster, without any breast pocket, whether with a button, zipper, or welted. Inside pockets seem to be far more functional than any breast pocket. However, I am OK with a single left breast pocket on the HWM and HB,although mostly decorative. Those are just my preferences and would in no way disparage what anyone else might prefer.

    I'm ok with small breast pockets as my wallet is only a 4-slot credit card holder with a few notes, so has virtually no bulk. I couldn't buy a jacket with open hip pockets and no zipped pocket, inner or outer, which is what puts me off some off-the-racks, like the Aero Pioneer.

    Already posted one without top pockets. Here it is again:
