Can you give me some examples in the sub-700$ price range. No "if you just spend $200 more, you can have this!" bullshit.Meh. For that price you can get whatever jacket you want. I honestly don't see anything all that special about these Valstarino jackets for that money.

i do not own a valstarino
Really? I could see myself wearing something like this everyday:Mid-brown would be OK.
I don't know why, but I don't like the look of the A-1/Valstarino style in dark brown - it just looks much better in light- to mid-brown, to me.

Though I do like this:

Thanks. It's been a rough few months, so it's nice to be amount friends here- even if I don't have much to contribute.
Sorry to hear that. Everything ok? We're here for you if you want to talk.Thanks. It's been a rough few months, so it's nice to be amount friends here- even if I don't have much to contribute.
I haven't owned a leather jacket in 25 years and didn't think they were my thing. The email from Gustin and a little googling on who they are copying for this release and my interest is piqued. And I love the rich red-brown Colour.
They haven't put a price on them, but I'm guessing under $800 and they will be considered competitive?
Sizing worries me. I think I'd have to go large for the shoulder width. How big a project are leather jacket alterations? Chest and sleeves.
As Rambo says, leather alterations aren't easy. Most clothing alterations places won't do them, so you have to look around to find a place. Having the sleeves taken up shouldn't be hard, but frankly I'd forget about fiddling with the chest - it just sounds like too much trouble and it could go wrong very easily.they're a fucking nightmare
Depends on the shade of brown shoe. Something like a dark boot wouldn't be bad.Would it look bad to mix black leather jacket and brown leather shoes? I'm leaning to CHL8, but black also looks nice.
Obsessing over this shit is more fun than real life right now. Thanks.

I agree with you, that you're between sizes and personally, I'd suggest avoiding these jackets if you don't think the medium will work. I think a medium jacket can work especially if you wear a 40R suit jacket. If you're a bit bigger than that, you would have to size up to a large which would also give you more length overall.
We're planning on offering other styles in the future, so if you don't get the jacket in this style, perhaps a future style will work better for you.
Chromexcel is a thick, heavy leather that is prone to stretching. Just leaving a chromexcel jacket hanging would probably distort it over time. Not only that, but the heftiness of it just doesn't sounds like it would be comfortable to wear on the upper body. IMHO, YMMV, etc.Why?
