    That Beck is a perfect example of how much better most modern jackets are. I mean other than it’s old it looks very well made and it’s a killer design that has been recreated and/or tweaked to death. It’s fantastic. But how thin it looks and it doesn’t have super intricate stitching from what you can tell at least. Super cool for sure, but today’s jackets in terms of build quality are mostly just better. Of course we can quibble which makers and some classic makers cranked out some great constructed jackets like a lot of Cals. I just mean overall.

    It's very much a cut I'd expect to see in a late Victorian / early Edwardian lounge suit jacket. It's look great worn over 20s, maybe very early 30s styles, but it would certainly be liable to look 'off' if not committed to an overall look sympathetic to the cut and design.

    Very much so, imo.

    I like these a lot. I remember every Canadian who ever came for a semester in Belfast when I was at university there seemed to have a vintage jacket in this style. I like these Spiderman colours, I could almost see myself wearing one of these, especially of the right one popped up on sale.

    The Chinese companies like Bronson and Non-stock seem to be taking a lot of their cues from the Japanese market. Certainly China could emerge as a source of "affordable versions of Japanese" in the same way as Japan did to the US at one time. I'd love one of those Aviator vests for wearing over a leather, but to date irrespective of the brand they all seem to stop just one or two sizes shy of what I would need.

    Here‘s another vest option. N1 deck vest by iron heart. I use mine all winter. Adds warmth and has hand warmer pockets to get me through my long winters.

    I really want to do this just to extend the season and get some wear out of my leather. Getting cold here.

    Not feeling it to be honest. Looks like a lot of weight to carry and the leather barely shows apart from the arms. I think it’d make more sense a vest you can wear under but then again... why not just a proper winter jacket. There are so many cool coats out there.

    I'll take the vests shown here as inspiration and design something and let Shawn make it for me.

    Dunno why but FC always looks great on Japanese dudes. Maybe it's just that FC posts photos where people wear these jackets casually. Those cuff checking cosplayers really kinda ruin it by taking the whole thing too far.

    I get what you're saying if I look at the guy on the left. His outfit looks great. But if I were interested in the cafe racer on the right, this outfit wouldn't tell me anything about the actual fit/proportions of the jacket. The low waist pants make it hard to get an idea about the jacket length. Also, wearing it baggy over a hoodie is not how a cr should be worn (imo). But of course that's just my opinion :)
