...and yeah, it's a question -- the sueded finish isn't like the nice original Loro smooth deerskin, I know the color can be cleaned/restored, but the sleeve relining is probably $75, so I'm into it for $150ish minimum. IDK.
Found a black Loro Piana deerskin thigh-length jacket with fat patch pockets, cashmere lined (sweet!)
The leather on the pockets and the ends of the sleeves is drained of color and slightly sueded (sad.) Also, the lining on the sleeves (silk) is shot and will need to be relined.
$85. Cop or no?
I will admit the more that I thrift and grab RL stuff, the more I respect the things he's done. I hate the manufacturing in third world countries, but the styling/conceptualization/materials/construction are all top top notch.
