    Hey all, long time lurker first time poster.

    Recently bought a Simmons Bilt x Standard & Strange collab Vanishing Point jacket. Goal was to get a fit that worked as a functional moto jacket but also looked good walking around. Only a few days of wear/tanning, but the color has already changed dramatically. Feels great on the bike, mostly worried front of jacket might be too short.

    Any sage advice?

    P.S. back of jacket with a shirt tail cut measures at 26.75” and front length measures at 22” (assuming front length is from where the collar meets the body of the jacket strait down to the bottom).

    Thanks in advance, this forum is a huge wealth of knowledge.

    Smile, it’s perfect! :)
    That’s how they’re supposed to fit. This model doesn’t have much or any front drop (or beak).
    Congratulations!

    As a rider it looks spot on to me.

    That looks great! I tried this jacket on when S&S first got it in and it is a very cool design. You got the fit just right, congratulations.

    Thanks for the responses. This is the first time I’ve ever posted on any kind of forum before so it’s pretty awesome to get feedback so quickly.

    This is also my first time dropping this kind of dough on a jacket, so it’s nice to get some second opinions (do I keep vs sell and start over etc.).

    Boyo, good eye. These boots are showing almost no wear after two years of constant use on and off the bike. Only oiled them once and kind of abuse them and they keep performing. Big fan of waxed flesh after these.

    Thanks again guys. I’ve spent way too much time pouring over these forums so it feels good to finally post something.

    Welcome to the Lounge man!
    I think that jacket looks great on you, length is just about perfect. I had the opportunity to try that one on myself at S&S once but I didn’t because I know that if I had I would’ve walked out of the store wearing it...
