thanks everyone. the jacket is easily one of my favorite pieces. i've said it before, but before seeing this i hadn't much considered buying a leather jacket. i didn't really think they were for me, but i fell in love with this when i saw it (thanks graham/re-porter). kind of simple construction, yet beautiful shape, leather, fit, etc.
it's (very) distressed lambskin and it's the best leather i've handled (admittedly, i don't have much access). i've received many compliments. i had to get a small stitch repaired (completely hidden now) and when i went to pick it up the seamstress remarked on how great the leather was. and today a friend in class came late, interrupting us, but she had to comment/feel it anyway. when it comes to some garments i don't pay much attention to quality, but after having this i don't think i could ever settle for low quality leather (on a jacket at least).
unfortunately i got some sort of orange dust (like cheeto shit but not edible i don't think) on the end of the sleeve today - not sure how. good thing i think i got it all out with just a slightly damp rag. i would have been super pissed if it didn't.
Moo, that's actually ok in length but it really doesn't work with the dark blue jeans. I'd say get a light grey pair of Levi's if you don't have anything, you don't strike me as the all-black type. Also unzip the cuffs a bit.
