Have you worn a jacket with cuffs like that before? Fair warning they can be very uncomfortable on the wrist if the length isn't just right.

I’ve had like 5 sport bike jackets, all of my cuffs have been that way. The blue one I have is same way, kind of thought that’s how they all was made. The sizing and my body I fit perfect for my size. 48 euro is like perfect for 150lbs 5’8. Haven’t had a complaint yet

I can return them if I don’t like the jacket fitting first off too. Can do that with any jacket fortunately

Your current Alpinestar looks the "dogs bollocks" but I need a closer look, can you send it over?

Iím on the fence!
I kind of like your original jacket more. I think itís the red in the new one Iím not keen on.
But each to their own. Iíve often chosen fit and practicality over fashion.
I think my taste is more traditional ( or boring in other words)
Choose what you like, be happy with what you choose and stuff everyone else

I like your old jacket way better. Plus, I think worn & broken in is way cooler than a guy with a brand new jacket. Shows you have miles of experience, and shouldn’t be messed with.

I need to add one more thing, for summer riding I only wear gear like 30%-50% of time. The alpine star is perforated so it breathes pretty good, but can get quite chilly. Its summer jacket primarily.

On real hot days (purely summer) I wear this primarily. Dainese air chrono mesh jacket in blue as pictured below. I really love it. (which I think looks better than both jackets for this bike) too bad theres not a leather version of it I'd own it right now.




The Spidi jacket is not perforated, looks to have a little breathability in the stretch/boomerang fabric on inner arms but would be perfect for spring/fall jacket. Summer I couldnt wear this, too hot, and that alpine star one is meant for summer. Theres a liner that can zip inside of it, but I buy my jackets true to size, so if I put the liner inside, its too small. If I bought the size to accompany the liner, it'd be too large without it. So I always buy the size of how I'd ride without liner/extra stuff

That Dainese Air Chrono is really nice looking. I might have to find me one of those.

Looks like you got a squatter taken possession, watch it doesn't confirm it's territory with it's scent mark.
