Thank you for sharing this pacman. I think this is the coolest looking Alpinestars jacket ever. I ride a classic bike and I'm always on the lookout for understated riding wear which does not make me look like I'm headed to the race track.

Currently I have a Alpinestars Viper Air Jacket which helps me keep cool in summer but does nothing in the style department.

I know style is very subjective etc but here's another of my fav. from UglyBros in case you are into similar stuff:

I've just taken delivery of a Belstaff Lavant waxed leather jacket, classic look and should go well with my 'Classic' when I get it.....along with my new Bell Bullitt TT lid! ....I wonder how long it will be before my wife finds all the new kit burried in the wardrobe?😀

If your wife is like any other wife/girlfriend, she already knows :p

Lovely stuff! Just checked out Belstaff website. Thanks for introducing this brand to me, didn't know about them.

Continuing the vein of biking apparel and wife/GF jokes, here's one from my collection ...

:D

I've got 12 Belstaff jackets. Bit of an addiction really! Only 4 are from the Pure
motorcycle collection and have armour. I've got a riding jersey that look just like the Alpine in this thread. It has armour for elbows and shoulders but not back.

I've been thinking about buying a Barbour jacket. 'The Cafe Racer' has an authentic looking International jacket (in black or olive) that includes armour pockets for around £350 ish. It's much like the Black Shadow jacket they released a couple of years ago but the new version has brass buttons and looks better.
Also recommend checking out the Ugly Bros jeans....

I buy too many jackets :eek:

Wow PeterK! You have an enviable collection of classic jackets. Exactly the kind I love.

I've only just relocated to a place which gets the proper four seasons, after spending nearly two decades in hot & humid SE Asia. Thus the renewed interest in classic jackets and riding in general.

Thanks for the Ugly Bros jeans recommendation. Will certainly check them out.

One can buy too many jackets but never enough! ;)

You're right!
I need another cupboard though!
I've just sold two and have another two on ebay so that will allow me to buy some more>:D

Waxed cotton was just an early form of waterproofing. So depending on what youre attraction to it is…here is my experience with it:
I live in Pittsburgh PA, USA. Here it is pretty hot in summer, but also extremely humid(and that's the rub), WAXED cotton/canvas is a very tricky choice until late fall or early spring here, It kills all the breathability of the cotton to become waterproof.
Some strictly fashion oriented waxed cottons are done very lightly, breathe a little better, but arent waterproof(but look retro bitchin).
I have a couple of really great Belstaff jackets(imo, the real deal) from their "North Circular Road" collection. Amazing quality, style, and from when they were manufactured in Italy to a very very high standard.
But…. Although I feel like steve Mcqueen when I put either of them on, I'm sweating like a ***** in church five minutes later :)
My advice, if you live in a climate similar to mine, is go with the very lightly waxed(or not at all) stuff and wear something else for rain..

Roland Sands is quickly becoming the next Paul Tuetel Sr. - a ridiculous joke, peddling overpriced wares to the unwitting masses.

Don't hold back tony
I'd take offense but... nah.... 0:)
Seriously... No offense directed towards you at all (my bad).

My "derision" is strictly focused upon Mr. Sands himself.
