Yeah y'all know how it is. Once the seed is planted. It only grows.
Ton. Really; do you ever get tired of "winning?"
Ah man I don't consider this one a win. It's nice but just not quite my thing. Good to experience the maker tho. They are nice. If I can find one just a wee bit bit more dialed in to my needs I won't hesitate!
Wrong, you just need good pesticide
Seriously though, it looks really good and spot on for a riding jacket
Agreed- looks like a perfect length on the front to me. The back is slightly longer than I would normally opt for in a short jacket, but that's the effect of the beaver tail that this style of riding jacket has by design - if used for its intended purpose, this can make quite a difference in terms of avoiding a draft on your back, especially if you tend to lean over the tank at all. Really nice design; I'd be tempted by one of these. Works well in both colours, too.
@ton312 that length looks pretty good from here but I can see why with those jeans on you feel like it's shorter than acceptable. Since the jacket was cheap (relatively) why not go the extra mile and splash out on some 50s style jeans that will sit higher up and marry better with the jacket? If this were to become a part of your '50s get up' then its inclusion in your rotation could be justified on these grounds. Lord knows we all spend enough time searching for reasons for our purchases and retentions, and in this case I can't help but feel like you are sitting on a very easy win
Man I'm not rocking a six pack...got myself a two pack at and a party ball, so jeans around my belly just aren't that comfortable!
Oddly, being a bit of a fatty myself, I find the opposite. Even in my early teebs long pre vintage I rejected Lee jeans (then, and until the mid 90s made locally in Northern Ireland) because they were all hipster cut, which I found desperately uncomfortable.
@ton312 , what's funny is that it fits you better than any of my jackets fit me. I mean, I can see why you aren't happy with the fit, it's not the HB but man, if I'd scored a jacket that looked this well on me, I'd keep it.
Seriously nice jacket, in any case.
Thanks man. I don't know how many CHP's I've done literally the exact same thing with for the exact same reason....I don't learn. Or I just keep trying inspite of myself. I dunno.
Yes, it's time to break the cycle and - as someone said already - just buy yourself some nice jeans with a decently high waist.
As a possible future beneficiary of this "CHP cycle", let's try to keep the status quo.
