The only underwhelming jacket, and really I think it actually adds to the effect, is the sort of mall Perfecto worn by "Wally" but I wouldn't be surprised if it was deliberate because the whole idea is a gag complete with him trying to write his name on the jacket like The Wild One. So much so that before the take ended I had about convinced myself that he had a bicycle at the start of the screen rather than a motorcycle.

The Sheriff's wool and fleece Mackinaw is fantastic, as are the flight nylon police jackets.
I love a black leather jacket, t shirt, jeans, pair of boots look more than almost any other look, but yeah when you had the hat, rhe name on the jacket, the specific ringer t shirt, the look becomes atrocious.

But really, it's the stupid hat. Even on Brando I think the hat looked lame.

I love the leather and the way they seem to have cut the hem and back from the same piece of leather so there's continuity, but is it just me or is the jacket itself egg-shaped?

The character is meant to look silly and like a kid in costume, to be clear.

The actual leather-jacket wearing main characters are in cool stuff like this vintage Bates.

Irrelevant, really! The point of tailoring is to give you shape that you don't have (that perhaps no one has!) For example the 'Drape cut' which uses a full chest to give the impression of a V-shaped body on any body shape; most famously associated with a Dutch tailor and his British disciples, but American tailoring at the same time followed the same principle (see 1940s photos) as did workwear hence those leather jackets with seemingly huge chests.

These new Japanese brands have tiny chests and wide bellies, which is a bad look on any body shape.

Even without the hat, it's just hard to take Michael Cera that seriously... maybe he's trying an edgy look for his banana stand

IMO, I think this might be the coolest jacket posted in this whole thread, simply stunning.
I looked at the seller's measurements and was so relieved to see that the jacket wouldn't have fit me well, otherwise I would've been gutted at having missed out on it lol

I’m looking for a cap like that, period authentic. Size 7 1/4. Any style will do. These things are ******* hard to find for less than a million dollars.

Best I’ve ever seen the Cera dog.

I like that one. Where did you see that?

I saw it posted on Vintage Leather Jacket forum. I think what he (the tailor) did was to flip the collar inside out, semi-dye the jacket, swap the buttons and the buckle, and add a wool lining.

DIY Aero A-2 jacket, using repurposed hide from a 1950s SOFA(!), with early 1930s Talon zipper and 1940s Aero label
