    Looking for Moto Style brown leather jacket recommendations

    The tops of the shoulders end at almost the exact point that my shoulders end. In my experience with suits and other jackets this is a good rule of thumb for shoulder fit. Is there a different rule of thumb with leather jackets? It's much more maroon than in the pictures on Schott's site. I...

    Looking for Moto Style brown leather jacket recommendations

    Sure, no problem. The leather isn't super stiff, but I admittedly don't have a whole lot to compare it to. I think the pictures clearly show that the arm length is super long, and with the zippers on the arms I doubt that can be easily rectified even if I loved the fit...

    Looking for Moto Style brown leather jacket recommendations

    Hi friends! I'm new to leather jackets (I only own one black "mall-jacket") and am looking to pick up a brown/dark-brown leather jacket. I really like the "Moto" style that is similar to a cafe racer but with a more traditional collar (Aero calls it the highwayman collar). My budget is in the...
