    Thanks guys and I agree it's a bit of a tricky design. I guess if I'm a bit fuller in the middle and slightly shorter it'll fit better but being slim and somewhat athletic a half belt would likely suit me better.

    I might go go for slightly more than a inch at the sleeves and roughly an inch for the length. For the taper I'll probably need some expert advice but great idea on how to avoid the balloon, thx Handymike!

    What was the weight like on the Navy Cafe Racer? The size 42 one she still has on their site?

    I wonder if you could ask them to shape the sides more like a board racer.

    Yes that's the one, the most recent navy 42. I'd say it's maybe a pound heavier than the halfbelt? Maybe the feeling was because it hasn't been broken in, but it was a good amount stiffer and heavier feeling for sure.

Fitment I believe is spot on! Honesty I couldn’t ask for a better jacket. Especially at a very reasonable price tag! I would like to thank @Monitor for talking about how he loved Natal Leather jackets, @ton312 for making this jacket look good in his pics & @Hh121 for moving this jacket along to me.

    Vanson Sturgis today for the Saturday Harley ride. 7C when we set off. This jacket has 4 zipper vents for airflow when it heats up on the way home. Elasticated waist , not my favourite look but as a motorcycle specific jacket it stops "ballooning"
    Buildings in the shot are late 1800's. Fremantle is a "preservation" city so is low rise for the most part.

    Bro, it looks great. Sounds like everybody worked together in unison to execute an elaborate play that marvelously ended with a SCORE!

    Why!? They were the nicest epaulets on any cross zip I've seen!

    It doesn't stay flat, so has to be removed.

    I just really liked them. Shaped, not just straight cut and the curve made them actually be there. They were spectacular, like anything else on the jacket. But, it's your jacket. :)
