Some fit pics and comparison of a few new and vintage brands

I've been on a ridiculous leather jacket buying binge (10 in the past 2-3 months, thanks a lot TFL).

One thing I have meant to ask in a new thread, was if there is a cross zip that fits like a cafe racer, and I think I've stumbled on one.

I also got around to taking a few pics, for reference I'm 6 feet tall and right about 190 pounds right now with broad shoulders. Ideally a jacket with a 42 chest and 44-46 shoulders would fit me perfectly.

Here's the one that I feel fits like a cafe racer, and the collar and lapels on this are fantastic. The listing called it a "custom tailored Tunstall", size 46. I really like the fit on this, and the leather seems to be exactly the same as my Schott below.

My first decent leather jacket, Schott Per28, size large:

Here's my Cordovan Ridley (with a new main zip, thanks Dena!) (Size labeled 46, but more like a 44):

Here's an older Brooks, I love this one, but it might be a bit small. Can't wear it zipped due to the tight chest, but I think this is common with these. The leather is worn in so nicely (size 44):

Here's a similar color Lesco. Thicker leather, fits nice, but I think this has padding in the shoulders. Still like it, but the zip in vest is horrible. Also a 44.

And finally a nice Fidelity. The quilted lining on this is actually really warm and it fits well. (44)

All hail the cordovan Ridley! Not a fan of the shirt hanging down from below the jacket but to each his own.
The "Tunstall" is pretty cool as well, but what's up with the extra seam on the front panel? Alteration job or cost saving?
