I purchased a size 32 (I wear 31 in Levis 513, 514 and 32 in Levis 511).  The Unbranded Skinny seemed much tighter than the Levis 511.  I wore it around the house for a couple hours and it seemed to loosen slightly.  But I didnt like the cut (neither did my wife).  She said it made my legs look shorter compared to the Levis I have.  I guess these are less tapered?  So it's going back to the store.

Thanks guys for the feedback. Appreciate both of your responses. After looking at some photos, I would like the jacket to fit more like the ones here: http://dapperkid.blogspot.com/2008/07/leather-jacket.html I'm going to take it back to the store. Does anyone know what brand the brown one on the site above is?

Replied in Just purchased a Wilson Leather Jacket, advice please (pics), 2 Weeks ago in Fashion

Hello, I purchased my first leather jacket today. I don't know anything about leather jackets. I went to the Wilson Leather store and they had this leather jacket http://www.wilsonsleather.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12260903&clickId=484913407&affiliateCustomId=&affiliateId=3656 for $180. I cannot decide if I should keep it or return it. 1. I tried on both the black and this light brown / tan (??), but my wife preferred the lighter one. Did I make a mistake by not buying the classic black? 2. Is the fit okay? 3. Is Wilson Leather an okay brand, for the price that I paid ($180)? Should I keep it or return it? Thanks guys! [Image]

The grey one looks nice! Almost doesn't look a denim jacket.

Alright... another question for you guys. I've always been a conservative dresser (meaning wearing whatever my loved ones bought for me, which usually means older relatives). But for some reason, I've always wanted a pair of white jeans. I've mustered enough courage to buy a pair of white Levi's 514. I really like the look, but I've been getting some mixed feedback. Guy friends tell me that they think it's too strong (kinda gay), female friends like it and don't think it's gay at all but told me not to wear it after Labor day. But I am digging the look and want to wear it now! The white is so easy to match, which helps because I have a limited selection in my wardrobe. One comment that really cracked me up was that I looked like a half peeled banana (I matched it with a yellow polo shirt). What are your thoughts on all this? Below is a pic of me wearing it with a yellow polo shirt. Sorry about the bare feet! [Image]

@lckychrmsbboy I'm not sure. There were a bunch of Matchsticks - grey, indigo, black, etc. But the grey ones were the only ones that were selvedge, so I didn't bother checking the other non-grey ones. I don't think there were any grey ones that were smaller than 32x32 though, because I was looking for a pair for my brother who's smaller than me and I couldn't find any.

@vvind As far as I can tell, they look grey to me (unless I'm color blind blushing) @justsayray No bro, I'm sure it's Matchsticks (see pic I just snapped below) [Image]

@justsayray IIRC, it was $49 at Nordstrom Rack. Not sure where you're located, but if you are near MD/VA/DC area, they should have some left at the Potomic Mills mall. "posting the selvedge line of it" - you mean a photo of the stitching? [Image]

@justsayray I guess the light caught it just right to give it that shine blushing Yeah, it's not really that shiny in person. I'm 5'10" at 171 lbs and wear 32 W x 30 L. The jeans I'm wearing - it's 32 W x 32 L, and the jacket is a medium. @slap and @vvind thanks!

[Quote] @justsayray I'm not sure, but here is a close up of it. I didn't shop for the longest time. I think I got this as a present at least 3 years ago. And I wore it a total of like 5 times. [Image]

[Quote] That's funny. The picture looked right-side up to me on my iPad, but was side ways on my computer. I fixed it. Thanks for the heads up! Thanks for your feedback on the shirt. What do you think about the length? Do people usually stack their jeans with longer inseams or can I get away with stacking them the way it is in the photo? Another photo with it cuffed. But I have dress shoes on. Thinking I should stack on casual shoes and cuff on dress shoes? [Image] Thanks.

[Quote] Thanks for the feedback. Can the length work as is (I guess stacking), or does it need to be longer in order to stack?

[Image] I have a few questions. I haven't bought new cloths in about 5 years. I've done some research and it looks like selvedge denims are all the rage. And the denim jackets seemed to me making a come back. I picked up my first selvedge denim, the Levis Matchstick, and also a trucker denim jacket (also a Levis). Can I wear the jeans like it is or should I hem or cuff it? I'm also interested in opinions on fit. Also, does the jacket work with the color of the jean? Kinda hard to tell but the color of the jean is grey. Please disregard the tag on my jacket. I'm trying to decide if I should keep it or return it. Thanks
