The Belstaff Manelotti age, was the best for me, Labelux is continue with the quality but the prices are more expensive.

Have you seen the Hero Collection of the Manelotti age?


Iron Man Jacket


Mission Impossible 3 Jacket


The Hero Jacket (War of the Worlds)


Wolverine Jacket



Are incredible Jackets!

I have the MI3 Jacket and This of all leather " Maple Jacket"

I didn't think any of the Wolverine jackets were Belstaff? I forget who made it (most believe Vanson Leathers most likely for the first X-men and an independent for the third), but I didn't think it was them.

I like the vast majority of their 'hero' movie jackets, especially the Dark Knight. I also liked Bane's custom Roadmaster jacket in the Dark Knight Rises (have to get one one day). I've got the Cougar jacket from the Wanted movie and that is an awesome jacket (though I prefer the leather Gangster blouson if I were to choose between similar styles). That said, I didn't like the Iron Man 2 jackets much (though the War Machine one was somewhat ok because it was less in-your-face).

Mayura Malenotti was the Director of the Belstaff flagship store Madrid and she said me extra-officially yes, the wolverine Jacket was a Belstaff design but they can't launched the model, i don't know why???

The dark knight jacket was incredible but for these jacket looks great with a bike and i don't have one! LOL

If a Malentti member told you that, it's big news. A lot of fans have been trying to figure out the various manufactures of the Wolverine Jacket. Vanson was originally thought to be the guys that did X1 because they were commissioned and made the first prototypes. Go onto FilmJackets.com site and let them know the news. Pretty awesome it's a Belstaff design.

Now i'm in a doubt, the conversation was years ago.......... maybe only was a colaboration.

i'll try to investigate, maybe i'm in a mistake.

Is possible the jacket was of other film of X-Men or Wolverine? Not of the first movie?????

The Racing Blouson for Cyclops is another great jacket. It's another I would love to have one day. Just have to get correct sizing. Belstaff has issues on consistency with sizing. Some run true-to-size, but I find others run really small.

Yes, all Belstaff jackets are totally different sizing, i have same model of jacket in different sizes "M and L" and both fits perfect.
Maybe Belstaff do this for the people must try the fit in shops, and don't buy in internet.

What about "brands" of lenses like Z-Lens, revant and walleva available on eBay?

I need a replacement set which Oakley don't stock anymore. Does anybody have any experience with these other brands?

Impact protection? UV protection?

I have a pair of EyeKon hatchet lenses... the optical quality is no where near is as good as Oakley lenses. Think of them as cheap sunglass lenses, they probably have ok UV protection (even 6 dollar sunglasses do) but as far as optical clarity/precision they are not good.

Thanks for the tip. Is anybody on here offering a cutting service on demand that anybody could recommend?

Dr Chop?

Dr. Chop still does the occasional lens cut, so he's your best bet. He sources out the lenses too, which saves you a bit of hassle.
