I have the RMC J100 in a 42
I'm 5'9 177lbs with a 42" chest and I only wear the jacket unzipped with a tee, and it fits a thick hoodie under just fine. You gotta allow at least 3 inches in the chest to breath.

I went to the shop vancouver today. I saw an iron heart type III IHK 64 that fit me well but not sure thats quite the style I was looking for. I also saw a Y2 leather EB 140 in black (almost brownish) 1.8-2mm thick Leather again similar style to the iron heart and a lot of $$$. I still love the RMC J100 clean simple lines. The fit above was super helpful thank you as we are nearly identical I am 39 years old turning 40 which this will be my gift 6’2 and 185lbs with 42” chest. This post really helped me and I think the 42 in the J100 would be the way to go! Thanks again.

Question I know standard and strange lists the RMC j100 as vegetable tan leather. Does this also means it’s Shinki as I have heard such great things about this leather. Apologies if this is a dumb questions.

Ok good to know that RMC j100 is still my front runner. Still enjoying the research and went to make sure it’s “the one” before I pull the trigger. Thanks for the heads up.

Did you happen to ask the shop Vancouver if they could get or we’re getting any more of those Y’2 café racers back in stock?

I would love it if I had a shop with high end leather jackets near me or at least in my state.

I have toyed with the idea of opening a small shop with a good web presence here in Tampa Bay Florida. I just don’t know if Florida is the place for it, I feel like New York abs west coast states like California, Oregon, Washington are more likely to have he right crowd that is into these clothes. If anyone knows Tampa I think the SoHo area might be a nice spot if there was one.

I would think Ybor City could be a good spot. Nothing goes with great cigars better than quality leather.

We need more cool shops in ybor and downtown St. Petersburg. Over the past 20 years both areas have been taken over by mediocre overpriced , here today & gone tomorrow restaurants. This restaurant boom wiped out most of the cool little shops for clothing, collectibles, art, antiques, and other interesting furniture shops couldn’t afford the rent anymore and couldn’t adapt to the new crowd of young professionals that hang out in the area. A modern store with cool clothes you can’t get at the international mall might be just what Ybor needs.

It’s still great, I’m sure much has changed though like the shopping that I mentioned. Of course you have a homelessness problem that major city’s are struggling with sadly. I’m sure it wasn’t like that in ‘98.
But seeing posts where guys are able to walk in and try on interesting clothes in person like in California and New York makes me wish we had something the same here. It would take a great deal of planning with these small companies. I could see inventory being a problem to stock as I don’t know how much there is to go around of many brands.

While the leather on this jacket is definitely good, most of what you’ve heard online about “Shinki” is just an online hype train.
