Wow. Sharp jacket. A bit nicer than my Carhart Detroit Jacket.

Very cool!
I've been wanting a vintage-cafe-style jacket myself, but couldn't find one that had the armor I wanted (and the couple I did find with armor I didn't really like). This one definitely fits the bill - congrats!

That's lovely!

Bit spendy, though!

Yeah it doesn't get much pricier than Belstaff. But I get overheated in most heavy road leather. You pay extra with Belstaff for the premium leather that keeps the thing light but still gives you the protection. And unlike a helmet which you're going to have to replace every 4 or 5 years no matter what, a god jacket can last you the rest of your life. Plus it just looks badass so I said screw it...:D

If I had the cash, I'd probably do exactly the same...

$1300 !. Agree that a leather jacket should last for life notwithstanding any change in body shape

My problem is that I'm about the same weight that I have been for 20+ years (actually on the slim side), but the weight has...somewhat...re-distributed itself over the years...and unfortunately, some of my great older jackets don't fit me well now. :rolleyes:

Very tidy. I'm liking the length in the arms too. I need something like this as I'm a little on the chimpanzee side when it comes to arm and leg reach compared to my height.

Great looking jacket. I'd make sure your tank pad is good enough to cover the area that waist brass button is going too contact your tank though.
