Please help me decide, because I can't. Both jackets are awesome in their own way. Forgive the weird posing, I didn't want to put any creases in before deciding. The  FH has a bit more room for layering.

Definitely the FlatHead!!
Brown stitching is awesome, the cut and pockets are closer to the original and the leather looks much better and more substantial!

From the pics I'd also agree to go with TFH. It looks like its leather has more character and it fits slightly better overall. Honestly, you can't go wrong with either, though, and both are going to age amazingly well.

Whew!

Those are some gorgeous jackets!

Overall, I like the fit of the FCL, especially in the shoulders... but, I dislike the belt.

TFH is great also, but I dislike how it looks slightly bulky in the shoulders... but then again, the brown stitching really pulls it all together nicely!

If I had to vote one way or the other... I'm going with TFH. I think the shoulders will settle, and it will be perfect

From experience the shoulders will collapse after about two weeks of solid wear.

What size did you go for Max? Looks great.

@Max Power I agree with @Finn666 that the FCL looks like it fits slightly better, but both are good.

I prefer the style of TFH jacket, as it's just a bit more stylised, and the leather looks to have more character. However, the FCL has got a pair of handwarmer pockets, which might make it a bit more practical in winter.

Thanks to all of you.  I went with 44/ XL in both.
I'm leaning towards TFH as i dont know wether they will continue to make it. Also it seems more versatile as it's lighter yet allows layering. If the FCL would be a tad wider it could replace my Schott. Overall i think its the perfect perfecto fit and i would be tempted to buy it some day in the future if i didnt keep it.
