    Notions about fit

    Personally I value comfort, so having a bit more room to play with is welcome. Never been a fan of skinny stuff, but I do worry that I might lean too much in the opposite direction, which can look unkempt.

    Aero Board Racer Leather help

    Of course, I can see why someone would appreciate the armor-like qualities of the stiffer leathers. I haven't had a chance to make a purchase, but personally I quite enjoyed goatskin's softness and scuff resistance from playing with the samples. I know it's not the most popular choice though.

    Aero Board Racer Leather help

    Vicenza's pretty great. Honestly out of the samples I got the only one I didn't like was CXLHH, too stiff for my liking.

    Aero Board Racer Leather help

    Have you considered ordering some leather samples? Getting a feel for the different types of leather offered might help. If you want something that doesn't need break in.. maybe their soft grainy steerhide? I quite like the sample I got of it but I don't know if there are things that are only...

    Looking for black leather walking shoes

    I'll have to check if there are any stores close by with Rockys or Thorogoods in stock. Samuel Hubbard is a bit out of my price range and somewhat dressier than I would like.

    Looking for black leather walking shoes

    My Clarks Caribou are nearing the end of their life and I'm looking to replace them. I'm hoping to find something confortable in all black (including sole) that is of a relatively simple design. I've tried Ecco shoes and while I like some of their designs the sizing doesn't agree with me. Does...

    First Leather Jacket(s) - looking for similar styles

    Have you checked out Goldtop? The 1958 and 1959 seem to fit what you want and you can still use them to ride if you choose to.

    Sleeves Too Short?

    Do you own any bracelets? It might add balance to wear one in your right wrist since the left one has your watch. I'm not the most versed on style suggestions though so take it with a grain of salt.

    Flight jackets with leather (not knitted) cuffs/collar/waistband

    I've seen a couple of posts regarding people giving their measurements and getting jackets that don't fit they way they expected. Seems to be a bit of a crapshoot, so I'd rather go with something that's a bit more predictable. Specially since buying garments online without getting to try them on...

    Flight jackets with leather (not knitted) cuffs/collar/waistband

    I've been looking at Fivestar Leather on their site and the thread on this forum. I'm a bit worried about some complaints some members have regarding the fit.

    Flight jackets with leather (not knitted) cuffs/collar/waistband

    Those are all way to expensive for my budget. I was hoping somewhere within 300-500. I know it's hard to get decent quality at that range. But I don't feel I can justify a big ticket purchase on my first jacket.

    Flight jackets with leather (not knitted) cuffs/collar/waistband

    That's pretty nice, not a big fan of vintage but could try to find something similar. Does that style of jacket have a specific name?

    Flight jackets with leather (not knitted) cuffs/collar/waistband

    I'm interested in finding a flight jacket with leather cuffs, waistband and collar, as well as side entry hand warmer pockets. So far I've seen that some commercial airlines use jackets like that in their uniforms. I've found a couple of options for sale but I have no idea regarding quality and...
