Vodka instead of beer. Fixed that for you.
My polish wife says same, and has friends send her the good stuff from home. You want to talk about seasoned drinkers, I am always amazed.
Throw some vodka in sparkling water...that's medicine.
The jacket came today, the only worry I have is sleeve length, it is little too long if it's totally unzipped, but if I zipped sleeve it looks fine, I don't know if going to be problem after totally break in.
Looks good. I wouldnt worry about sleeve length. Sleeves on my America are at least as long when unzipped (I am 5'9" and Vanson models their sleeves for 6'9" guys) but after continously wearing the jacket with the sleeves zipped close and the sleeve resting on my wrist, the sleeves have creased a lot and fit shorter now.
Yes , sleeves zipped then no problem.
My Vanson Comet zips the sleeves tighter than any of my other jackets , probably a motorcycling imperative methinks !
Yes, this is a true motorcycle jacket. Everything is tight, and it is less stiff than I imagined, weight 6.6 lbs, heavier than my suburban.
The sleeves on my Model B America are long too. But when you put your hands on the bars...it's just rite. Yes, it is a true motorcycle jacket for sure !!
Yes, the Comet is tight as are my other vanson. But I have to say, the Hardcore sleeves, when zipped, are tiiiight. I like it but can see how some may have an issue. No more forearm exercises for me.
With all these B's buzzing around I can hardly be blamed for my latest purchase.
^whaaaaat! With the weather hitting 50 tomorrow I'm waiting to see the vootlegger out.
Re the sleeves: i think they are slightly longer than would be customary to account for handle bar reach. However, it seems that they zip so tightly at the wrist it wont't be an issue. I can only zip my watch side 2/3 closed.
That sleeve length is probably perfect for riding. It looks like it should be a great fit once it really breaks in
I'd like to see a pic with your arms STRAIGHT down - with no bend at the elbows. Also, a shot with them extended straight out in front, like you're holding on to motorcycle handlebars, or a steering wheel.
it looks fine, but have you tried a size smaller?
Wouldn’t change a thing. My favourite part of a thick leather jacket is the heavy creasing on the arms which you won’t get to full effect without some initial length when new. Would you mind posting the measured arm length ?
