    this is p much exactly why i bought my double rider with no belt. i pretty much only wear that style of jacket unzipped and having it flapping around really does make you look like a fool

      The no belt ones also look better imo, when you have a belt it just takes the attention away from what’s going on up top

      just get a normal one.

      This is the kind of shit "style gurus" tell men in their mid 30’s to buy and they just look like goobers

    I leave the thing strapped until I’m taking it off, but then again I only put it on when driving my motorbike.

    I usually wear a light jumper underneath it so I still have a top layer when I take it off

      If it really bothers you, then just tuck in the belt.

            Voering (lining in Dutch) 100% polyester.

            You can’t get polyester (PE) to look like leather pleather is usually polyurethane (PU or PUR), polylactide (PLA) or polyvinyl chloride (PVC).

    The whole garment looks clownish, like a 13 year old’s idea of cool. Don’t wear that if you aren’t deliberately flirting with cringe. Punks wore it for a reason

    If you haven’t worked it out already, you need to have the swag to pull off a leather jacket…otherwise just don’t. The Perfecto style requires the most swag. If you think maybe you can’t pull that off but are really still keen to try, then got for a less out there style like a collared moto. Don’t get a cafe racer unless you actually ride a motobike otherwise it’s cringe…real talk….
    If you’re worrying about the belt, you shouldn’t have bought the Perfecto because you don’t have the swag. Sorry…

      Plenty of people wear motorcycle jackets and don’t actually ride motorcycles, that’s like saying you have to fly planes to wear flight jackets and aviators, it’s a style

        "You have to do X to wear Y" is the most stupid take on fashion ever. I’ve never heard someone say this in earnest outside of this board, so I assume it’s a /fashion/ exclusive. Perhaps by migrants from other boards who never go outside and don’t know how to interact in society. But it’s weird how persistent this take is.

    I felt like such a poser when I fell for the /fashion/ memes and bought one of these, lmao. People constantly asked what kind of bike you have. I tried hard to like it but ended up selling it to an actual biker after two years.

      If you feel that way and prefer things looking neat and proper, it’s not for you and that’s just fine, your comfort and confidence matter the most.
      Biker jackets are only cringe when the wearer ignores this instinct, you need to have the (for lack of a better term) personality to pull it off.
      They also elicit extreme butthurt among those who desperately WISH they could wear them with confidence, these types are extremely self-conscious and uptight which is precisely the opposite of what this aesthetic projects and demands, like this /fashion/g

        i’ll admit, post-lookism, /fashion/ and /fit/ have been ruined by narcissists that absolutely would try to sabotage an anonymous person on the internet they would never have to meet and compete with.
        but i warn people about shit like this because i absolutely did make a lot of spergy mistakes and i’d like others to avoid my mistakes.
        these jackets are a hard mode fit. if you’re on LULZ you are way less likely, even than average, to be able to look good in one of these.
        at least go to the store and try these things on, first.
        also, if you cop second-hand: you can probably get someone else to cop it back off of you later and not lose much money.

          As opposed to what, r*dd^t? You’re buying into the "internet hate machine"-incel strawman too much. People visit LULZ because they have a functional sense of humour, the stereotype is reinforced mostly by bots, discords trannies, and a few terminally-online incels who actually fit that mould.
          >at least go to the store and try these things on, first.
          Of course, you’ll probably buy one or maybe two leather jackets in your lifetime so make sure it fits. Or, just order online and return if you’re not pleased with it. You’re overthinking the process too much because you’re uptight.

            no, i used narcissist on purpose.
            you remember the old bit where fat feminist women were saying they had to smash beauty standards? ie. brainwash sexy men into hecking them?
            that’s a narcissistic behaviour.
            what these guys on /fashion/ and /fit/ do today is kind of like that.
            they will post threads on /fit/ all day trying to demotivate men to stop lifting because this seems to them a more functional plan than just… lifting weights and losing body fat.
            so, if you went on /fashion/ ten years ago there would be absolutely no dudes trying to stop you from looking cool.
            but that absolutely could happen on /fashion/ today. you could post a picture of you looking objectively good and a guy would rag on you because he is hecked in the head and thinks if you stop looking good he will look comparatively better and win.

            it’s absolutely not a strawman that the people that use this site would be less likely than average to look good in a perfecto jacket.
            and most normal people would not look good in a perfecto jacket.

            i have used this site a long time and there has always been guys that fetishize leather jackets and damn near no one ever posting photos of them looking good in leather jackets.
            this is because it’s a hard thing to do and the type of guys gravitating towards them are the least likely to do it well.

            >no, i used narcissist on purpose.
            Fair enough but I think you’re underestimating the overlap between narcissists, homosexuals, and incels. They’re usually comorbidities.
            >here has always been guys that fetishize leather jackets and damn near no one ever posting photos of them looking good in leather jackets.
            Exactly, they have a fetish for the leather jacket aesthetic which goes beyond the garment itself, I addressed these types in my previous posts, they wear it like a costume.
            Posting pictures of yourself and your fit for anon strangers to judge is already deviant and insecure behaviour, under the best of circumstances, and it’s completely at odds with the personality traits of those most likely to pull off the look.
            Selection bias is at play because only insecure cosplayers are posting pics for random gays to judge. The rest of us wear them to dingy bars and trendy restaurants where we pick up rocker brunettes and blonde bimbos who feel like getting hecked by a legit "bad boy" instead of the usual cunts with exposed gold chains and the promise of free coke.

          just wear it.
          honestly, there’s no real pulling-it-off for this unless you look like a greasy outlaw biker from the late 1960s
          but if you just go ahead and wear it you are essentially pulling it off.
          i don’t know if that makes sense–just wear it if you like it.
          some people will think you look good, others won’t and most people won’t even notice.
          i guess essentially whhat i mean is: if you’re wearing it and you like it well then you’ve succeeded in your effort

    Its literally a motorcycle jacket. At least the originals were. They were meant to be worn while riding as a protective clothing from wind and road rash when crashing. If you want to wear it as a fashion statement then wear it however you want it.

          Well the short of it is that punk fashion in it’s infancy was meant to be very cheap and working class, think Sex Pistols. When it hit the mainstream, the high brow fashion houses wanted to cash in and made expensive products for rich people who wanted to look punk, but didn’t understand that in essence and at it’s core punk was about rebelling against the mainstream, safe, posh culture that looked down on them
          Subcultures are mostly dead but there is still a fine divide between ‘being’ and ‘posing’

    I bought a second-hand leather jacket yesterday, looks to be from the 80s or 90s, it’s in great condition, also made in Australia too and sort of reminds me of the jackets the police force wore in Mad Max. I’m so happy with it brehs.
