Congrats!!
We r jacket twins!, I have my black 2010FW as my first ever moto from Bal Milan. It was tight at first and stiff beucase it was thick and heavy but now I can crumple it into a ball ...it gets so soft and lighter in time And with wear.
One of my favorites that made me fall head-over-heels in love with the moto!!!
Hey twin! Yes...the FW 2010 leather on it is very chewy and soft...but it definitely "squeeks" and "crunches" when I move in it...guess it will quiet some when it is broken in! Thank you sooooo much for your help! It's not really tight though (hope it doesn't stretch any)...just right for layering.

yeap, I couldn't agree more
well, i guess if this is "stiff and bulky" now then after it is broken in it will be a puddle of leather! it already is super soft!

OMG I have like 5 + pages to catch up on and I will this evening. Until then wanted to post my 2010 Khaki that I wore this morning. It is a good irl color of the jacket and it is my only size 38 and fits me really well I can even zip, lol. LV I think that the reason that the lining comes up when you push your sleeves up is because the arms get tighter. I noticed that it did that on this jacket but not on my others but is a smaller size. Just a thought.

^^hey Meg, are you starting a new trend here as being "military chic" ?
Then you've scored major points!!
Just don't think the actual military would have the budget for these motos, well yes, if they cut back on the artillery?

Tempete is from f/w 10, same season and same zippers as your black. And I think the look would be too similar to your black as it's a dark dark grey. And I don't think you're black one will stretch as it fits you so well. It will soften though and sit better and better with use.

I really don't want it to be too tight...I just want it to fit correctly (according to Bal you are suppose to be unable to zip?...I can totally zip and still have room...even with my push-up on...hahaha!). But, I think it does fit fine...I can easily layer a couple of lightweight t's and a sweater and still zip. But, yeah, I am considering the tempete one too.... Just trying to track down some history on it... She just bought in Feb. from another seller on ebay (just messaged the previous seller to get some info. on it...according to her listing it is a 2011? ).
