I mean yeah … I get that. I'm just kinda surprised that I saw something from Coach and the word "cool" was close by in my mind. That usually doesn't happen.

hahaha, same thing happened to me when I saw the jacket. It was all by chance I was in the store with someone and try on the jacket. lol

To me, that's where the fun comes into play - something unexpected like that.  I mean, you can walk into a cool boutique, that caters to you, merchandizesto you, and for sure you are going to find something.  Coach though, hits squarely at the high end suburban mall shopper.  In those outdoor malls all over California, from Pasadena to Walnut Creek, it's in there with White House|Black Market, a nice running goods store, maybe a PF Changs. When you find something there, it's much more of a pleasant surprise.  And Coach has some very capable designers and specializes in leather goods,  That would be my only question - did they use the good stuff?  They are certainly capable of sourcing it.

Anyone here have a Himel Bros, or an Aero shearling? Curious to see shots in the wild

this is basically the case with most higher end brands with gaudy branding

That would be more than I'm expecting I'll ever get from Drew Keith.

I'm holding out for your moto. Must have back gussets.

Totally, agreed with you. who know, only time will tell if their clothing will last but so far I am liking it. Their runway stuff are not bad, however we all well know runway doesn't translate to real life practicality and looks. 

 

I think they are upping their game in the men accessories and ready to wear, maybe going back to their root is not a bad thing. Anyway, I am still looking for that MM 5 zip jacket in 34 Us or 44 EU, why is it so hard to find one?

most brands make very few EU44s. the majority that they make end up in the japanese market

I got it on sale for $500, 50% off.

 

Agreed, double rider is everywhere but they just have that classic look that took a hold of me. lol. LA Guy, you have to hurry up with the collaboration, I really want to see and buy it!!

 

 

Lol.  Okay.  Um, here is a terrible cell phone picture of the latest, and essentially perfected (I'll take in the hem and body maybe 1/2 of an inch on a size 40 - I want it to hug the body a little more, but since it's longer than the typical rider, I don't want it too tight and bunching at the bottom when zipped up.

 

Note the really even grain, good stitchwork, and the really nice Talon hardware.  Note that we did a more Lewis leathers inspired style as compared to the Perfecto (more American) version.

 

The second pic, the color is considerably more accurate.  A rich caramel color.
