Woa that sounds very heavy. I'm looking for a light weight jacket, but I love the longer-looser styles more than the 20s trim fit, and biker short slim tapered cut. I guess everyone loves Shinki, but it is still horsehide and by nature pretty heavy. I'm thinking of goat for my next jacket, but gonna have to get me some Shinki too. Where does it stop?

The RMC Shinki that I've seen has been quite lightweight. Lighter than the Aero vicenza for sure. RMC Shinki + cotton lining would be fine in east bay IMO. About as warm as a Levi jean jacket I think.

That sounds perfect. I will look at RMC cuts. Do you recommend any in particular? Boy, they are pricey too, no?

Jonesy- a return trip to Standard and Strange is in order. They are the only RMC dealers in the Western US at the moment.

There used to be a Real McCoys store in NYC, but I understand it is gone. Too bad, it was fun going in there.

Seems true to size, with the caveat of "if the numbers in your size don't work for you, moving up or down probably isn't going to either".

if you like the Mulholland, you may want to look into Lewis Leathers Dominator or Corsair. i love that Mulholland and I just placed an order for a Lewis Corsair. all three of these jackets are so clean and timeless. for me, what made me pick Lewis is there's a retailer where i live and they can custom size.
