The only english I want on my Japanese leather jackets is w.e the description is on every pair of Julius pants. So edgy.

Why are ugly tartan linings consistently used in these repro jackets?

Is it traditional?

It makes them look really corny and "uncool" imo

This is a custom jacket, so it's up to the customer what type of liner they'd like in the jacket...we have a number of cotton drills and cotton sateens that would offer a more modern, understated choice.  The traditional tartan is a historically accurate choice, but then again so is a simple black drill lining!  It's always best to choose something you believe you'll love forever...

@Thurston Bros where you been guys? Haven't seen much posted. So how much does an aero like that run?

What's a good moto under 1000?

Busy!  It's been a good winter for us...we usually just post on our own thread, but the mention of repros always piques our interest!  This Aero, in the black Vicenza with a tartan liner, runs about $1,260.00.  That's with a fit jacket, so the body and sleeve lengths are custom.  There's a lot out there under $1000, but Vanson and Scott are probably the best in the repro market.  We're trying to get the Vanson Daredevil finally finished up with Vanson...hopefully the leather will come through soon!

the 5-zip is basically a starter jacket for luxury newbies who want something that's inoffensive and bland. but good style is never either of those things.

thank you.

MMM 5zip has changed over the years (zippers used, leather and even cut). You might like some of the new version that are slimmer and more tubular (i.e. more like DH/SLP/anything fashionable right now). I personally love the old version and wear it more than my other leathers (3 RO including a fox fur collar one that I'm sure OJ also likes). It is super easy to wear with slim jeans or whatever but I find that it looks cooler with a clean Margiela aesthetic (so white shirt and a patch sweater). As for the leather quality well mine is deer, some are calf etc etc, it is a mixed bag and you can't really say with a straight face that you dislike every leather that have been used. SLP basic riders are what, lamb and calf and that is pretty much it. I prefer the calf version.

My latest jacket: a thick, hefty lamb. Anatomic seams on the sleeves, and vertically ribbed panels on the torso sides and forearm backs. The overall impression is pretty cyberpunk.

IRO bought from Barney's Warehouse. Wound up buying at stacked 50% and 30% off retail.

 

It was final sale and slightly larger than I prefer, so I soaked and ran it through a dryer to shrink it. The sleeves and back panel got some incredible texture out of the process -- an enlarged grain effect that almost looks like an exotic leather. (I want to photograph this, but can't seem to get an accurate shot.) Now it fits perfectly and the aesthetic is actually improved, in my opinion.

 

The product page is here, but the photos don't at all do justice to the leather quality:

Especially if you got that much of a deal on it, I'd agree looks pretty cool.

Incredible how much better it looks post-soak. Well done, sir. 

post #13169 of 16648
damn, idk if i'd have the balls to soak and dry a brand new jacket, maybe if it was 80% off and i could handle a loss of sorts...

I've done it with veg tanned lamb and agree it works great for shrinkage and texture, although I did not throw it in the dryer, after washing I just bunched them up and rolled them with a big ass towel and let them dry out for a couple days like that
