Eagerly awaiting my WJK boots from bluemerle. They told me they would be shipping on Monday last week but nothing yet, which is fine considering they come from Japan and customs can hold the parcel for a few days... can't wait and I hope they fit!
I've sent an email to bluemerle asking them to send me a tracking number though, they were very nice in previous emails.
Damn I remember when they had the side zips on sale for super "cheap" mid last year or so...
/\ Indeed! And it is amazing... stunned beyond words after handling it in person.
Medium weight vegetable tanned black calf leather (love the smell!), the signature zippers with different colored teeth, lovely stitching and patterns all throughout, slim sleeves... The cut and length is perfect for me.
Alessio's work always looks simple and understated but has the details/intricacies that make each piece so awesome. I know we talk a fair amount about his footwear, but the clothing is much more enjoyable IMO.
Some pics (which don't do the jacket justice). Color is black IRL:
