Cool idea.

Yes, the Appalachian flight jacket-type epaulette is my favorite. Can also find it on the Sportclad/Kurland and my early Cal.

My LW LT B also.

I so wanted to wear a leather vest but it's the same as a jacket in this heat...

Only wear the leather when I ride. I do have some lighter vests and jackets for work. For both riding and work, my gear is truly functional. For work, pretty much required too.

Today I wore my latest riding jacket for the first time. It's a Knox Urbane Pro, which is an armoured, abrasion resistant base layer designed to be worn under whatever jacket you fancy, or even as a super airy jacket in its own right.

I wore it under my Johnson Motors Roustabout dry wax jacket today and it was a perfect combo. Except for all the hot-weather bugs plastered all up me by the end.

Sadface.

Got this Schott Perfecto on it’s way, but trying to figure out what model it is. No epaulets, no coin pocket and no upper left side pocket. Anybody have any ideas?

Just a guess, but perhaps a 622 with the epaulets removed? The 622 was offered for one year in 1993.

Nice bike. I had an ‘09 T-100. Nice jacket too, but aren’t the sleeves a little short when you reach for the handlebars?
Hey Thanks! Nope, the sleeves are perfect. With a motorcycle jacket, sleeves should not interfere with wearing a pair of riding gloves. If you find yourself tucking your gloves under the sleeves or pulling the sleeves over your gloves, fussing with that area in any way— then most likely the jacket sleeves are too long.

Some material I created for my Instagram account

Funny, I just realized the sleeve gussets on the HD aren't functional at all.

My favorite is when the sleeve gusset zips are on top!
