i could carry on ewith my red belstaff textile jacket, but i think i should get something more...fitting ( geddit )

no way am i getting anything 'Harley' , so i was looking around and cam across this site and jacket.

Could be the one ?

Prices look good too - lots of excellent reviews etc - ship via 'shipitto (http://www.shipito.com/)' for better shipping prices

Might I take the liberty of suggesting Sir compliments his wonderful taste in Bloussons and purchases a pair of these extraordinary garments as the perfect accompaniment? Sir will be the talk of the town!

just so ...as in not textile / biker / gay / tassled / racer etc etc.

i thought it was ok - obviously some people don't get 'it'

Looks too long in the body to be a riding jacket.....:nenau

How about something like..

If they won't ship direct I could order and post from here.:thumb2

Mmmmm.......my honest opinion is I can see where you're coming from and that jacket is 'almost' there, I quite like it but ultimatly it looks like it's trying too hard to look cool/retro :nenau

IMHO a beat up old wax cotton jacket, covered in a layer of Aussi road dust is gonna look coolest on an ol' Harley :)

PS I thought the 1200 section was bad, but stroll into the :ymca section and you're having feckin' cosy little fashion chats!

That jacket looks fairly :ymca2 to me...

Why not look at Vanson (http://www.vansonleathers.com/main_page/chapters/mens/traditional_list.html) jackets, they're brilliant, and will outlast us all...

I'd advise you to keep that to yourself... :D

I reckon the Roadmaster is a nicer version of what you were looking at above (but more 'waxed cotton' looking).......should look cool after a year or two of use.
I was also strangely drawn to the FCJ but not with the perforations?

I looked at loads before i bought this one, nothing came close to this, got lucky, managed to pick one up at the NEC for 300. Good thing is you can remove the armour and wear it as a casual jacket as well......:D

Number 32 has one of those :thumb2 We haggled like mad in the barbour shop just off carnaby street - ended up doing a deal with the bloke who worked there - 250 , paid in cash, met him around the corner to collect the goods. :D
