    Spectacular jacket, perfect fit. These jackets ought to also have a surgeon generals warning:
    May cause extreme addiction, ridiculous obsessions and bankruptcy.
    Anyway....walk off home run for you, nicely done and welcome to the lounge!

    Great looking jacket and fantastic fit that took me 3-4 runs before I found one fits me that well.

    MOTO, you did really well there. The 30s Half Belt is one of the most wearable, non-fussy designs I’ve ever tried, if not the best for total versatility. I like the black color a lot.

    Nice Look - head to toe. The overall look and location (railroad tracks in the background?) work. BTW, those boots you're wearing - are those Red Wings?

    Wow, GOOD EYE! Yup, they came brown, but I dyed them black, but the black is fading, so they've got "patina" now! :) Steel toes... Made in the USA. I'd rather have those Iron Rangers, but at that price I think I'd go with Wesco boots instead.

    Dang that's a good deal. I wear an 11D in RedWings, but unsure if the IronRangers have the same fit as their workboots line.

    RedWing is making a moto-modded version for Indian Motorcycle®, with added ankle protection and the WarHead Icon Embossed in the heel area, for the same price as regular retail Iron Rangers, I think: https://store.indianmotorcycle.com/en-us/shop/apparel/mens/footwear/2864412/

    Okay. Day 2 with my jacket. I've never known love like this before. It's so flawless and amazing. I like to pretend it went down like this:

    "I couldn't be bothered with shipping fit-jackets back and forth, getting measured, or obsessing over add-ons and custom options. Then, I used the famous, "Seville Suit Method" to break it in for me, but my gardner paid me for the trouble."

    There was no waiting-period, not even for shipping. It happened to live just down the street and I picked it up mere hours after my winning bid. The universe aligned and put this jacket on my back. I feel like King Arthur and this jacket is my Excalibur. Now, I must bed with the Lady of the Lake, because she can't keep her hands off my pimp new jacket.

    See, new guy comes in with one jacket.
    It fits great, looks great.
    Yeah, he knows he's gonna die young 'cause he rides a bike and smokes.
    Now, new guy brags about the damn unreal luck of getting a perfect jacket first try, no numbers, trying on, sweating, etc.

    Man, you will do well here!

    @ButteMT61 I think that @MOTO is going to live to be 150, because he's that jammy. :D

    Nice jacket, and I see you've got a Saint baseball cap. They do great motorcycle gear. (I'm local to them in Melbourne.)
