McCoys for me. Prefer the lapels and sleeve length is better for when creases/ripples start on the arms after starting to break in.

Sleeve length/fit is way better on the flat head, and you will get better break in/patina on that version than the McCoys.

Amim, if I recall correctly you usually sold items in size XS or S on here right?
I think both wouldn't do it for you as they're both pretty bulky on a smaller frame, even the Mccoys. I'd recommend checking out addict clothing (japan) or lewis leathers.

If you're deadset on the ones above I'd go for the Mccoys.

Pretty sure that’s him trying on both and both fit fine?

Would go Flathead for sure, sleeve length is better and the height at which the jacket meets across your torso is lower and looks better than the McCoys

Sleeve length is better on the Flathead but it will rise after breaking in. That's why the McCoys would be better.

The cigarette (narrrow, more tube like) arms will create a closer and consistent wear against the body to break/wear in. The arms on the McCoys just don't look right to me, you can see creasing/bunching because of excess material not wear. Compare that to the Flat head they have a very clean smooth look/fit which will wear in really nicely.

Also hard to compare as only got one angle, can't see the side or back which could make a massive difference to the look of both.

The arms riding is argument is a bit redundant as you'd expect the whole jacket to give all over, shoulders etc so any change will be negligible.

Is one of them teacore leather? I personally wouldn't go for that as don't really like the idea of a black jacket turning brown

Yep, the Flat Head is teacore

@toin
The pics are of me wearing the jacket.


Thanks for the comments

I couldn’t decide between the two and have come to the conclusion that I am going to return both. I was leaning towards the RMC because of the colour and lapels and overall it had more plus points but I don’t think it is worth the risk (& money) on something that I am not 100% on.

These as a cheaper alternative to Hoka Kahas?

Returned both of them!

The flat head was tagged as black but looked brown to me so I returned it. Fit was better but for me a biker jacket needs to be black

The RMC - I wasn’t 100% sure on it but I will probably get it in the near future if I can get one as a good price (probably go direct from Japan). I just have some other priorities at the moment
