My new (new fit) RMC BUCO J-24
Been wearing this RMC Jh1 hard past handful of days. Getting teacore breakthrough on a lot of edges already. Jacket is cut so perfectly. Just rests effortlessly on my body and leather is the best I got in all my collection. Count me in on the RMC fan club.

Decisions need to be made now because this is probably going to be my go to black jacket and so the back and forth quest to shrink down the collection hopefully a few more continues.

Wearing this 1951 Buco J65 received from a very friendly and accommodating forum member yesterday. I'm 6'2, so this vintage cropped design comes up pretttty short, probably a little shorter than i would otherise go for, but y'know - its a cool old jacket. I don't think (I hope) it looks too out of whack, I'd be interested to see what other forum members think. Here's some pics of me rattling around my man cave in it

It would be too short for me, although it looks kind of cool. Since the sleeves fit, it doesn't look three sizes too small. Rockstar-like

With my shorter jackets I have one pair of high waisted jeans to accomodate for the length and looks of those jackets. I think this looks perfectly fine on you, but could also be an opportunity to experiment with your look.

haha yeah - my look, beyond different jackets, has not developed that much since I was about 16 - maybe this is indeed an opportunity to branch out beyond slobby knackered jeans ha

Yeah. I'm pretty much the same, but I find with jeans with a higher rise you can still use the same tops and experiment with tucking them and maybe add a cool belt to the mix. I finally found a t-shirt that is short enough to use untucked with shorter jackets so I'm able to mix it up. The last pic is with the high waisted jeans.

If I were to wear high waisted jeans, I would have to pull them up so that they really hang at the waist. Then I look like the man with no upper body. Or like Steve Urkel.
Every other pair of pants always slides on the hips in the short or long run. Therefore low rise. My shirts are all so short that they reach no more than 1 cm above the belt buckle. I hardly ever tuck them in.

When I wear the high waisted ones they sit on top on the back of my pelvis and seem to drop a little at the front. But I need a belt to find the fit I want.

No problem, it's not too short.
You just have to wear it with high waist pants (as it was the norm at the time)
It's a nice jacket !
I have the same "problem" with one of my cyclist jackets (Hartmann), but finally it's one of the particularity of these jackets that is just really cool.
