yah i know the models you are talking about. but that paneling/stitch pattern was present on CDiems before CCP did it I believe (i may be wrong about this). lots of boot makers use a similar panel on the lower front inner shin area.

The dude's turbo wedges are probably the best part of the fit though.
MSRP on that jacket was like 10k I think. He will regret that shit fast fitting the way it does.
