Wow wasn't that DH 3.2k on Yoox? Looks like it fits you very well, maybe a little on the longer side.

It was around 2.5k (€) to where I live minus 15 per cent promo code -> just north of 2k. I figure if it retailed at somewhere between 4-5k, that's minimum 50 per cent off against official price - good enough.

Very interesting btw that you think it's "on the longer side" - my main concern was if it mightn't be a tad too short on me. I'm probably a little paranoid about that as a lot of stuff looks short on me if I don't buy it in huge, billowing sizes. I guess that worry is settled in this case though!

It's very expensive but it looks good and fits you well IMO. Looks chocolate brown in my monitor in your pic but it's black, right?

I'm after a shearling jacket, I've wanted one for some time but price and not being sure I'd pull it off has made me hesitate. I like several jackets from Acne or Burberry but they're simply too expensive.

 

How's this BLK DNM for 900 pounds?

 

 

 

I don't usually like their regular leather jackets (feel kind of plasticky in pics) but shearling looks better. I find harder to tell the quality of shearling from pics than regular leather. Even All Saints (whose regular leather jackets look like crap) shearlings look nice to me in pics (also around 900 pounds).

 

 

Any alternatives? Also, why is shearling so expensive? Certainly not because of scarcity of raw material (which is the case of shell cordovan for example). Is the tanning process very complicated?

That Dior leather is fantastic. If it works for you financially then I'd say keep it for sure. Dior quality is pretty top of the line, as well

Yeah, it would be the highest price I've paid for a single garment so far.

It is proper black, bathroom lighting makes it appear lighter-coloured than it is.

Keep it! Even in your crappy (sorry) pic it looks fantastic, in person it must be amazing.

What is truly mind blowing is how mediocre it looks on yoox lol

Actually, goat was my instinctive first choice as well. I'd actually emailed Aero and got a reply from them, saying that their Italian HH is "less rigid" than goat. To which I was rather surprised and wondered what you guys thought.
But thanks again, I think I'll need to do more reading, and also find out about their jerky HH. Looking through their leathers it seems like they don't have deerskin though ....

Having owned both Vincenza (2 jackets) and Goat (1 from Aero and 2 from Langlitz) I can tell you that in my experience the goat was less rigid, especially the Aero goat. It should also be noted that the Vincenza HH has changed and evolved over the past 18 months. It was thick and grainy to start, then became much smoother, and now seems to be back to being a grainier leather from the get-go. I have both grainy and smooth "versions", and I can tell you that they are both beautiful, high end leathers.

I do own an A-2 in their jerky HH that is a very nice, underrated, fairly supple hide. Certainly more so than FQHH CXL, and a little softer than the Vincenza in my experience. Any of the choices being discussed here require much less break in than FQHH CXL, which I do like, but it's an acquired taste and many do not like wrestling a jacket into submission over a period of months or longer.

Thanks Chris, that really helped.
The jerky HH sounds quite interesting as well, and I must say I haven't really heard it being discussed much.
Do you by any chance have a picture of it?
If it's not too inconvenient, of course.

Thanks again.

LOL

Totally agree. I had an anxious few days after ordering. I trust Yoox, but still hate it when I have to return high-priced items.


In fact, in my old days I would probably have counted on Yoox's mediocre image making sure that nobody would buy it for a long time, and stared at it in my dreambox for a year... lately I've found all that waiting tiring. Maybe I'm getting old or something but nowadays I prefer getting fewer things at higher prices, but those few more or less right away to make up for it.

I got this Burberry shearling a few months ago but on heavy discount (like 80% off) and wouldn't recommend at retail. It was that or pay around $5k for a Saint Laurent.

Honestly I would just wait for sales and hope your size is available or buy second hand.
post #15374 of 16653

That Burberry looks great, I wish I could find it at 80% off. The SLP also looks great.

 

Just got an unexpected payrise today, I might give the BLK DNM a go, although I was going to wait. I just got a Falcon jacket last week too.

This is Aero Jerky HH on an A-2 in russet.
