    I have always felt that you wore your jackets one or two sizes too big, especially in the HammerKlavier days.
    This jacket is IMO the first one i see you wear that is actually your size.
    It looks good.

    That was also my thought when I saw the picture of your back. Frontside pictures do look like a very good fit.

    Jacket size is just right, I agree with C~ that unlike most of your previous jackets, this is just your size. If anything, it is 2" too long which causes that fold in the back.

    I think there's some truth to that. Other jackets Hh121 as do seem large.

    Looks nice, at least as long as you don’t want to sit down/lace shoes/...:)

    Not really, this jacket offers great mobility and leather is very pliable.

    OK, maybe less a question of jacket than of pants...:)

    In Germany it’s „bricklayer cleavage“.

    In tribute to the Bricklayer's Cleavage, one wag in Shoreditch once change the chalkboard outside the Bricklayers' Arms to read "Bricklayer's Arse".

    Jacket looks good to me - more a question of whether you feel comfortable in it. The more room at the chest / tighter on the waist cut is very period accurate for many American 40s / early 50s bike jackets.

    Im going against the majority here but you wanted opinions and we all have them. If I never saw the back view photos, I'd say the front looks like a properly fitting tight fit for actual bike riding. Borderline too much midsection taper/tight waist for casual wear zipped up.
    But, when I look at the bottom of the action back panel being pulled in near the waist and it kind of popping outward right above, I think something isn't fitting as it's meant to. Maybe 1/2 size too tight.

    Looking at the photos what I notice is that the jacket lenght is the main concern and the reason why it bunches up in the back.

    Happened to me with the Lewis Leathers Universal MK.II. It is too long and tapered so the bottom of the jacket is too snug and it rides up. It’s not that the jacket it’s too small because the chest, sleeves, waist fit great but the hem of the jacket is too tapered for the lenght.

    Good call..even though the jacket fit your build, I believe the taper was a little too extreme..almost like skinny jeans.

    I don't think this jacket needs marketing, I will be happy in either way (keep it and sell).
