    I think it’s pretty good option.

    the jackets are high price and just 1” in the chest or nape can ruin your fit.

    Now I'm doing it ..
    And for some reason.. already know cannot be the last..

    Been on the board, maybe a handful of days..and read a lot of your posts..
    What comes again and again is simply, make it timeless, yet put in character that a discipled eye would notice.. and most importantly enjoy...

    I think @jfan looks great with his new FL, granted it may be on the longer end for this type of cross zip but maybe he prefers it that way. We just need better photos to appreciate this bad boy more

    Definitely what I prefer. This is my pants with the highest rise and this jacket covers the belt.
    The cuffs do taper a crazy amount but I have tiny wrists so it works great for me.
    Thanks for all the kind comments and critiques. Really new to the leather jacket world.

    Got it, to each their own preference for sure. A longer jacket does have its perks especially if you don't tuck your shirt in but it will be harder to sit upright when you zip the jacket up. Cuffs look great as it is, it will help with creasing the sleeves better. You got a nice template for your future purchases, it will be easier to have made to order jackets made. Keep wearing it and take note of what you like and don't like to be changed as far as measurements/design details goes for your future jacket projects.

    Just studs, these are a classic original Leathertogs thing, you can find them on the FW La Brea and Centinella, as well as the LW Leathertogs B.

    IMO they are super cool.

    I saw that too. When everything else is perfect, these kind of imperfections are noticeable.

    Mine is slightly off centered too.

    It's not mine! Good guess, though. This one has a longer pocket than mine will. Mine will be much more square. Mine also will be brown, not black.

    Also, I'm not expecting mine until around September. He suggested I wait so we're pushing it back.

    That jacket looks awesome, though.

    I think with a tip like that better anchor the center first maybe with hand stitch just to secure the tip, later the single handstitch would be buried under the machine stitching, and not visible
