Cabourn clip. Really wanted one of these about 4 seasons ago. Now that it's been knocked off all over the place...

Still a lovely piece, and it does look better than the Heritage Research (R.I.P.) version

reedo I have a different version of the drkshdw jacket and I really don't see it working with your wardrobe. Also came to dislike the leather sleeve/cloth body

What about it? I like a lot of leather sleeve wool/cotton body items, so it would be good to know why thats a bad combo from someone who has dealt with it. Thanks in advance!

@noob, i dont want reedo making my mistakes. biggrin.gif

The Heritage Research A/W 12 collection appeared on their web site but not on any retailers pages. Egomark who used to represent them doesn't mention them on their web site.

They're either deceased (although I can't find any articles on their demise) or just gone very very quiet...

Oh, that's sad news... I've picked up some really nice pieces from them over the years...

Here's a tip:

Plokhov leather
white scoop neck tee
destroyed blue/grey/creme/black jeans
combat boots

I've literally tried it on with like 10 different outfits (every time I try something new, I throw it on to see if it'll work), and every time I end up just feeling bummed.

And honestly, that DRKSHDW is wayyy less crazy than the Plokhov, especially considering color, collars and the fact that most people won't even be able to tell what the material is on either part of that piece. I unno, maybe I'm imagining that jacket to be easier to wear than it really is, since it's based off of a sort of "classic staple".

Ha you guys have got me scared to try/buy new things with all this doom and gloom!

meh, reedo is in college...in portland at that, I think he'll be fine. IME no one gives a fuck what you wear in college. then again i go to hopkins so it's mostly lazy privileged fucks in sweatpants who haven't left D level of the library for months in hopes of getting into medschool even though they're not really smart enough to get through the weed out classes.

nah, reedo just give up and donate your Plokhov to me
post #30553 of 37262
also, reedo is pretty good looking in a traditional sense of the word, that imo he's going to look good in most everything as long as it fits. i really can't think of a reedo fit that was terrible.

Eh, my school is actually pretty conservative (socially and politically) and people give me shit pretty often. Mostly immune to it, but w/e

Extra word of advice on the denim/leather combo jacket - there's a decent chance that the sleeves will be ridiculously long. I picked up a drkshdw/RO jacket (not sure which) in sort of a T3-ish style, and I ended up having a couple inches chopped off the sleeves just to make the darn thing wearable (I take a 35" sleeve on dress shirts, FWIW). Not sure that's necessarily going to be an option with the ribbed cuffs on that one, so if you go with it you might just have to deal with the arms as they are.
