I’d like to see a picture of your riding gear if you have one available. Sounds great!
I am totally into the retro rocker style - Lewis Leather boots with cream sock top, Goldtop 617 jacket with chequered silk scarf, Goldtop gauntlets - and I commute like this to work on my CR as often as the UK weather allows. I love my old Davida Jet helmet with modified Climax 510 goggles for a Sunday pose but I have to make compromises for comfort on my commute;
When I'm down on the clip-ons a full face helmet stops me turning my head fully round to look behind me.
I now should be wearing my glasses for riding as I don't want to miss anything happening ahead of me and even some John Lennon ones don't fit the goggles well. I got some glazed with prescription inserts but these aren't great.
My current helmet of choice is the Schuberth M1;
It is open face style but with side cheeks to offer a bit of extra protection.
The flip-down clear visor is really easy to use especially over glasses and looks a bit retro.
It has a flip-down sun visor which works well.
Clip the Bluetooth module in and it's pre-wired so you get music, intercom, phone calls (even on the Norton), satnav messages.
Stick some graphics on (yes I know....) and it's a great almost retro lid.
