• Hey guys, I had to upgrade the VLJ software because the old one is being phased out. Please let me know of any issues in the SITE UPDATE THREAD. Thanks!

For reference, here's two jackets that are more my size. The good thing is there's more room for interpretation with casual wear opposed to sport coats... Which either fit or they don't.

First pic is a Johnson leathers M-Jean. Second is what I think is a one off custom jacket for a long defunct San Francisco leather bar called the Ambush. Yeah, that kind of leather bar. Eh, it's just a leather jacket. I think it's horsehide, but not sure.

And no, I'm not a narcissist. This is all in the name of science. Haha!

Just because we love to pose and see photos of ourselves dressed up in leather jackets and we post them on the Internet for the world to see..........:: doesn’t make us narcissistic.,,,,,

No but possibly a Kardashian:D
( I’m sorry but, I just had to answer my own question on that one! )
 
I don't know what it is... I've always been into clothes, but I've gone off the deep end these last few years.

It's a combination of joining the styleforum thrift thread because I wanted to see how to best update my way out of style 90s dress wardrobe... And I think at 45 years old, I wanna rock some badass shit to see if I can still garner attention from the 20 somethings. Not that I can do much about it (happily married for 15 years), but I have been flirted with by younger girls. Makes you feel pretty damn good. Lol!

So basically, midlife crisis and cheaper than a corvette. Haha!

I'm too cheap to hem the APC jeans. That's why the big cuff. Lol!

$9 at the thrifts. I'll get around to it. I usually do a 29" hem. I'm a 27" inseam with slacks. This allows me to wear uncuffed... Or cuffed to be a douchebag and show off the selvedge

The large cuff roll on the jeans has never been a 'thing' in Australia. For twenty years I have been puzzled by it. "Just buy a shorter pair of jeans"... ;)

I have two pair of the 405s. They are terrific and even good to wear when doing heavy lifting as I have never had back issues since wearing them. The S heel is said to be orthopedic. Probably why Harrison Ford insisted on wearing them for filming when the Red Wing was the preferred choice.
 
Some more close up pics. one photo is with random wool flannel I might wear with the jacket on occasion. Again, I'm not gonna, wear it that much obviously, but it's begging to go to the USS Hornet at the Alameda Naval Base! Probably wouldn't be it's first time, if you know what I mean... It told me so. Bwahaha!

'Cuffed' you say.. JC is sporting that look in the majority of the GW website pics... Will 'give it a miss' as we say in Australia.

You Sir; however, are rockin' it!

Is Roughwear on hiatus? I figured Andrew would have weighed in on this immediately.
Rough Wear has left the building!;)
( He’s stopped posting here, for reasons known to himself and I guess a couple of others here) That’s all I’ve got:oops:
