    Some fantastic comments and points everyone.


    The point about how you feel in a jacket is so important. Maybe THE most important factor , even more than your physique and the style of the jacket.

    Ive had a couple of goes at wearing the RGT. It’s a cracking jacket. I just don’t personally feel that it suits me so felt very self conscious - ie it was wearing me.

    The Cuba jacket though - I pull it on a feel great even though in the community it’s probably not been seen as one of NTTD better outfits.

    i think following a few rules isn’t a bad thing but they are guidelines not the law.


    Pull on those leather jackets guys.

    That's interesting - I've got some Bond jackets that border on too "showy" but the RGT is to me the least ostentatious of the bunch!

    It’s a great jacket…can’t make it work for me but comes back to we’ve all said .


    it’s all in the head !


    what would we call the ‘showy’ jackets?

    Often, what we see in our heads is vastly at odds with what we refuse to see with our eyes.

    Do you mean people are deluded and think they look good but they look Sh*t?? Please explain!!

    To the point that "it's all in the head", I think that's true to an extent. But yes it's human to delude ourselves when it concerns our self-image. It's a head-heart thing. To put it plainly, we always look better in the bathroom mirror :)

    To me the Matchless suede, the Varvatos suede, possibly the Tom Ford Solden thing.

    Geez - I hope that's not the case as i hate the way i look min the mirror most of the time! Perhaps the reverse holds true as well! :)

    I didn't see mid-life crisis on wearing leather jacket at 40, even daniel craig looks great in leather jacket.
