    I had 2 amazing repairs off them in the last 2 or 3 years. One where a tear on a GT pro sleeve disappeared to the point where they must have just replaced most of the sleeve. Another where they patched a hole in the back of another GT pro shell immaculately. Actually ... a third one they fixed J62-PB pockets (albeit that was their defect) after initially saying just use a local tailor. In all cases the repairs were silly cheap (15EU for the sleeve one) or free and UPSd back to me.

    Yeah ... you can put some military badges on there should you wish as per the J16-GT Velcro shoulder flaps. I don’t believe there is any other technical reason for those.

    Yeah that’s a good point (PB/FO) ... the face feels a lot more fragile than the lining in that instance. I can see how it would be a good move!

    Also I always figured this might contribute to more seam peeling if that faces the washing machine drum... (even though I use a garment bag too *paranoid*)

    It just didn’t work for me - I didn’t bother looking for a workaround as I just want something at that price to work as-is out the box else it goes back. Had to yank it down on one side to align it all the time etc. Same kind of reason why I got rid of the J59-GT as I couldn’t stand that zip either. I have seen the raccagni zips work fine on other models though and clearly people got on ok with the J50-S apart from me. It has a great sturdy feel to the jacket and I was bummed not to keep it at the time.

    I had 2 x different J50-S and got rid of them cause I couldn’t stand the raccagni zipper. It is quite nice with the stotz layer and feels bulletproof but personally I infinitely prefer the J50-WS and J78-WS. J50 is quite fitted indeed if you ask me vs 78 so I prefer that as a liner. You could always size up on J50 but I always think that looks sloppy as the shoulders won’t align etc...

    For me it was better than J50 in the end - better length, better sleeves and more roomy for some layering (I like a hoody underneath).

    Ta - getting it now so will do a side-by-side soon

    Any significant difference between J78 and J50? Not seeing it yet...

    You guys got lucky - not sure what you ordered but my bill was steep (UK)

    From what I can see they have been stocking it for at least a few years already?

    Hello - clearing out the following: J63-PB, size M, bag and sheet. Worn 4/5 times. Maybe some slight sheen but no noticeable damage - £875 P26-S, size M, RAF, bag and sheet. Tried on only. £500 PP F&F or add fees, if in the UK I ship for free, if elsewhere then we can talk. Thanks

    I’m 5’9 and the medium was only just the right length for me. It obviously depends on how much you let them sag but I’m hardly thrusting them up high and i’ll still get the odd glimpse of sock.

    Yeah! 68 would be a good and maybe obvious one for the full leather-look rider jacket!
