Got my first and probably only leather jacket: Real Mccoy's Buco J-100

Just came across this thread. What a stellar jacket!

You definitely made the right choice on size—the fit is great. I’ll bet it’s breaking in nicely now, too. If you have dogs, take them on some walks in the rain wearing it.

Congratulations and welcome to the forum.

The fit looks good, as others have said the sleeves are long, but unless you go custom, there are always compromises.

The Flat Head may be another brand for you to check out someday. They make jackets with wide shoulders, large chests and somewhat smaller torsos.

Indeed, the sleeves are a bit long, but as they crease it's getting better =)
I tried some from the Flat Head in Tokyo as well, didn't like as much as RMC, although still great jackets.

Thanks man! I'm happy with the size too, still working on the breaking part =)

Hey man, nice fit! Can I ask what you height and weight is? What is your typical chest size? I am trying to decide between the 44 and 46. I usually have a 46 chest, but got the RMC A2 jacket in 44 and it fits well. Thanks in advance!

I'm going to Japan in end of the year in November and have the same plan as you - going to TRMC, Freewheelers, Y2, etc to hopefully get a jacket.

Are there any other places in Japan anyone can recommend for leather jackets? My first love is selvedge denim so of course I have to visit Osaka which is where Y2 is located.

I have never measured my chest... just did now :D
Chest is 116cm and shoulders 128cm. I have big lats, if they were smaller I'm sure that I could have gone with size 42, it would be a better fit on the sleeves and shoulders, but I would be completely unable to move my arms :D

I am 1.78cm and 97kg

I just want to know how many more jackets he bought since his first and only jacket

So far, that's the only one! :D

I don't want to make the same mistake I did with sneakers... I have a closet with around 60 pairs and just don't have enough time to wear them all, especially after covid and the work-from-home situation. Eventually, they will just deteriorate and it will be a big waste of money. I have many pairs I bought 5 years ago and got less than 10 days on them.

I have 4 jackets: this J100, one ski jacket for skiing, one thin waterproof jacket for fall and one heavy waterproof jacket for winter, the plan is to buy a new one only when one of these goes away, otherwise, I'll have a full closet with jackets that I only wear 5 times a year.

Actually no, I was kind of decided on TRMC, but just walking around in the big cities I'm sure you'll find many choices.
