    Dear Dav...Yes indeed Sir , back to jackets ! I wore this today , but no outdoors current photo due to inclement weather.

    The jacket is currently outside hanging under the patio , drying from the rain squalls experienced today

    So here is a "photo" of the listing in the Schott catalogue from 1991. Schott 637 "Vintage Steerhide Bomber jacket" no less.

    ( Plus I did not want to display my lack of "jeans prowess" hardy har har...) Black Aussie made 2002 Levi 604's today.

    44. Haha, yes, the upper sleeves are really wide. The Rock’s biceps would be perfect but then his body would hulk out of the jacket. Lol. I wouldn’t ride in this jacket though, that dainty OG zip wouldn’t last too long and forgettabout a slide.

    It’s like asking what’s better: Cheeseburger or Steak?

    One is all about harmonious balance leading to excellence, the other elevates a single element to delicious primacy

    You should make a review of those leather "jeans" if you haven't already.

    Are those lined or unlined?

    cheeseburger ftw, steak you need to cut with knife, and do the dishes afterward, cheeseburger just need to kick the pedal of my dustbin with my left foot and throw the wrapper in

    Then maybe I don't get what you mean by saying something is idiotic. If you're saying it's a lot of money, I totally agree with you.

    And on the topic of jeans, look at Brave Star Selvage if you need an alternative to $200+ jeans. Very affordable, made in the USA denim.

    It's basically this, yeah.

    Once I decided to upgrade my jeans game, I went to the mall thinking I'll easily find something cool there without having to spend hundreds on dollars on a stupid cotton and I have failed. None of the mall jeans gave me the silhouette I found visually appealing online, which is how most IH's and other high(er)-end brands seemed to fit. I couldn't even find a correct looking loose cut, 50's-style jeans either and I'm not much of a fan of those either. Mall jeans mostly had that... Generic & specific jeans fit, be it slim cut, anti cut or whatever cut.

    When I bought my 25oz's by IH, that was it - the jeans looked on me like on the best photo online. Same with the Projects. What I'm sayin', these guys know what they're doing and if you care for the difference pricier jeans bring in... Experimenting with a whole bunch of cheapo brand to get there might end up costing you more than a good pair of Naked & Famous in the long run.

    Extremely, mega cool! Really beautiful jacket & a great fit.

    Get a pair! You could rock them. They're straight, slim cut, fit me exactly like 25 oz's. As comfy as many Aero styles aren't and tough as hell. I really hope to make a daily wearer out of 'em.

    Serve the ribeye on a sword and eliminate the need for plate and utensils.

    yeah but the gravy might drip and rust the link of your chainmail.
    and you'll be doing this the entire night.

    Agreed. Same with Unbranded Brand. Their 21oz straights are superb and well under the IH price tag.
