Hence why I purchased 3 in the last month haha, although I am just trying to end up with whiskey, I wouldn't have minded keeping a black, brown, and whiskey bomber in my wardrobe

This is what I'm kind of afraid of...you toss and turn and hmmm and hummm over getting the first one, and then BAM! it opens the floodgates and pretty soon you have a whole goddamn rack.

So true, but I guess that's the same with anything of higher quality clothing wise, right? I mean once you make the jump from garbage mall brand to SF approved, the gate has already swung wide open!

Same page for me (I increased my post per page count), but funny nonetheless. I assume you're still trying to enable me to purchase the A-1? A suede variation is definitely in the cards for me though, just want the whiskey bomber in hand first!

Report back after your wait is over and post some fits of yours to help me out

Snakeskin on the inner part of the cuff seems like a waste of expensive material. Unless this is all just embossed leather which is what it looks like in the mockup.

I plan to wear them open a lot, so it's not really a waste imo. And it's going to be anaconda if we do it, apparently This is all subject to change, just brainstorming. It would depend on how much snake we have to use. Obviously if there's a lot I'm going to try to use it all.

It's not a waste. "Hey baby... wanna see my anaconda?"
post #3743 of 54803
i was wondering if there was a particular snake being used. that's awesome.
post #3744 of 54803
Wonder what the materials upcharge for something like that will end up being? Depends on how much of it you use but I guess 200 or so?

Drew said the piece of snake he found costs $500

Could be even more if the skin is huge. I'd have to imagine skins for this purpose have to be from a large snake, so like an anaconda or python. Garter snakes need not apply. Those fuckers are huge.

Uncontrol, I'd be a little concerned with snakeskin on the inner cuff. From what I've read, the zips are pretty heavy duty and scratch the calf from time to time. Might do some big time damage to snakeskin. (i have no knowledge of snakeskin so my comment is based Me thinking snakeskin is delicate.)

a garter snake would yield a piece of hide about 3 foot long and like 3" wide if you slit it up the belly, and have pretty pussy ass looking scaling. Snakeskin is like full-on tropical horror flick snake - the leather guy told us a normal snakeskin is around 3 meters long. It'll only be single digit inches across, but fuck, 3 meters long? We might have snakeskin left over for more Uncontrol projects.

Well, if you're going to do it, don't half-ass it, get the good stuff.
