I personally think that the cross zip (whether a motorcycle or an aviator style jacket) brings a certain beauty and magnificence that a straight zip jacket doesn't possess. The presence of a cross zip effortlessly oozes masculinity ,and individualism. In my opinion its a stand out, stand on its own, head turner. To put it bluntly, a bad a$$ jacket, man are they cool! My intention is to collect opinions, experiences, knowledge, preferences, and pictures of cross zip jackets. Wether its your favorite jacket, your wish jacket, or your jacket of recommendation i want in on it. You may have a cool idea circulating in your mind, stealing sleep from you, a dream jacket that has to be cordovan cxl horsehide, with mismatched vintage hardware, 3 front slash pockets( lined with moleskin )with zippers, a western back yoke, a halfbelt with side tabs, faux cuffs with zippers, sateen lining with corduroy strip at the bottom, and a big collar with double stitching. I want a similiar build after i found this old catalog picture

The cross zip imho is the undeniable “king of all jackets”. I love them to death. There really is nothing more bad ass than a cross zip. I’ve had a few but the real treasure trove belongs to @Mysteryo (I believe he has hundreds?).
Not wearing them much myself these days but they are the coolest. No question about it.
