    That, along with expensive beard grooming, which I am sure the OP will be fully up to speed with, will complete the look.

    What are we talking about here?

    Brown, distressed, modern but retro leather? Hopefully, stylish Italian but maybe Chinese, with just an Italian flag sown into the label?

    Genuine 1940’s USAF fighter jacket?

    Lewis Leathers, Great Portland Street, London W1, 1970’s Battle of Britain sheepskin?

    Geography school teacher corduroy, with leather elbow patches?

    Plaid, perhaps?

    And the trousers and boots? What about them? There’s a total look being sort here, Dick. We are here to help.
    Thanks Wapping appreciated.
    You seem truly fascinated by me, I'm very flattered.
    FYI then, the brown leather jacket is a Rukka.
    Eleven posts a day I see, where do you find the time to ride your bike/s?

    Oh, I'm afraid I don't do pics or links, or even basecamp for that matter.
    What vehicles, two wheels and more, do you pilot then Wapping, I'm guessing talk of motorbikes and transport in general is what excites you most?
    (Incidentally, since you raised it i am indeed a shortarse, though at 64, if your profile is truthful... you are the 'old bones' when compared to me).

    Have a look at the Nexx X.G200 range, retro look that work well. I have one and it fits great, use it in the warmer weather with a pair of goggles...

    Emptiness is the starting point - In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup. My friend , drop all your preconceived fixed ideas and be neutral. Do you know why this cup is so useful? Because it is EMPTY.....
