    On the left is a cross zip motorcycle jacket, on the right is a police patrolman's jacket. I would not know if the motorcycle jacket was a police issue, it does not have a badge holder. Maybe on a police motorcycle and wearing a police helmet, the office wore his badge pinned to his shirt? The size tag on the police jacket is too worn to read the size but I guessing it was 46 the jacket fits like a 44. The MC jacket is tagged. size 40 fits like a sung 38 93FF0287-FD85-4C6E-A4C9-1D2FA10E525A_1_105_c.jpeg note the inside belt loop on the MC jacket to hold the back down while riding. The police jacket has wider sleeves made from 2 pieces, the MC jacket has 3 piece arms and a action back is cut with more taper to the helm C823D996-F946-4830-9385-B4C0C3C25DF4_1_105_c.jpeg 7A79CE12-4FBA-4862-88A0-F48E82707D3E_1_105_c.jpeg 0ECA91BC-B197-4170-9944-BCAB8F7A98B2_1_105_c.jpeg 93FBFCEE-5BB4-44AF-ACE1-37CD3EF607B0_1_105_c.jpeg 4A454EAA-6277-4B97-B492-B83B122C445B_1_105_c.jpeg CC310A27-0B5A-42E1-9BE7-AEE7B7A01740_1_105_c.jpeg 4F56798B-E5FE-4661-BF60-C104CF935E67_1_105_c.jpeg D89CDE9C-D93E-40C6-A61A-EEB3B3360413_1_105_c.jpeg

    Both are incredible. I thought about purchasing the X-zip MC jacket but figured it was way to small for me. Looks like I was right. The seams would be begging for mercy. That police jacket is as good as it gets for the style.

    I like the MC jacket fit best. I've owned several of the straight zipped police jackets. I do have a cross zip that doesn't fit me. I have not seen any new sales recently. I have one I will be selling. I've got three Taubers I wear. I know their are some interesting jackets out there.

    One I owned.

    This is too small for me Taubers. I seldom see a Taubers with the original detachable collars. The collars are more common on Cals. Maybe it had to do with cost? I have two Ralphs-Pugh jackets with detachables.

    @jonbuilder nice jackets. I have a soft spot for the police jackets.

    In my jurisdiction, only motor officers wear leather jackets, and their badges are pinned to the jacket, using the badge holder.

    I know what I would steal. A couple of Hercs, Californian and maybe a Taubers, if I had time. In and out, all stealth like.
