    the guy seems very short, so I don't want to comment on that, to me seems like he just make do with size he can get away with and use hem length as his guide which is a correct length for his build and even modify the stars from the epaulette to his sleeve, I can see the leather is a good one, and the jacket seems well made, I can see it could work in a baggy cyberpunk kind of way, but I'm totally bamboozled by the way he dress it with... tube top/ spaghetti top and pearls... :confused:

    These are precisely the kind of fits and images that made me never want a cross zip when I started collecting jackets. These "guys" both look incredibly feminine to me...the vogue guy looks like a west side story wardrobe fail and the second one might well be a lady-boy wanker prostitute. I suppose they both have nice purses though, so that's something.

    Okay, so I badly edited the pic a tiny bit, narrowed the shoulders and voila, it immediately looks & fits literally like on any and all of us over here. It's a bit short but not shorter than any Cal, while roughly being cut the same way.

    While I don't particularly like the rest of what he's wearing, the jacket is on point. In a smaller size, it'd look great, combined with a pair of jeans. And as for the feminine thing... @ton312, EVERYTHING we wear over here right now is currently a staple of women's fashion, which is to say, leather jacket on a retro-styled pair of jeans (currently either 50's or 90's) and boots. It's how women have been dressing for the past 5 years and it's gotten to the point of transgressing into formal women's fashion as well, as an alternative to dresses and heels, so attempting to characterize any aspect of fashion nowadays as feminine or indeed masculine is really a moot point. Younger generations will be wondering why is there a forum of grown up men, dressing up like their moms. XD

    I didn't notice the pearls at first.... they remind me of my Dr Frank'n'Furter days.

    Any idea what brand the jacket is? Looks a lot sturdier than most fashionwear. The liner reminds me of GoldTop, but they don't do a Perfecto-type. Sleeves look a bit like how my Johnson wears if I don't zip up the sleeves; could be it's designed for wearing as a bike jacket with shorter gloves (or patterned after similar).

    I have to disagree…the Vogue image and wherever you found that other one came from…the jackets I see here (including my own cross zip) have nothing in common with the fit or build of those two. Those look like a women’s jacket being worn by (presumably?) men.

    not sure what woman would wear such thick leather though, maybe it's a Bruce Willis special.

    @ton312 You must have introduced it other thread already, but I just want to ask again, what is that jacket and which hide? So darn cool.

    It's super overpriced. Even myself living in the same city I can't be bothered to look at the stuff.

    Definitely. The jackets don’t sell. Here and there perhaps, but I’ve got a few in my favs that have been there a long time. And will probably be there awhile more. I’ll wait for the 60% off sale.

    These guys are my style bros. I wanna hang out with them instead of the squares I get stuck with in the office 5 days a week.

    Some jackets they got are worth the money they're asking, some aren't. But for instance, the 50's Sears & some other, they're priced very accordingly.
    This has been my dream jacket since years ago when I first discovered it...
    https://www.etsy.com/listing/946235725/early-50s-hercules-steerhide-d-pocket
    ...and I've only seen a handful of them in all this time I've spent digging through eBay and never one in such a fantastic condition. There must've been like 20 Buco's I'd see on each of these.

    On the other hand, it's a lot of money. I keep thinking about it but I got the 60's one and objectively, there's too little difference...

    But anyway, what I'm saying, this is a real gem of a jacket. Something you'd be hard pressed to find in the USA, let alone in Europe.
