Commenting on Rick with no substance to back it up and even if there is some truth behind it, I think I'd like to still try the leather out myself thank you very much, or maybe ask several people on SZ.

I just used random designers and Balmain came to mind cause I was just selling couple of items and funny enough it just so happens that you are also a guru of this brand as well.

Regardless^, I could of used the reference to anything random, eg protein powder from brand ON or wheelbarrows from bunnings, Mcdonalds cheeseburgers, toilet seats, urinal cakes, whatever, anything, it's not really the point.

But maybe I should thank you, it's people like you who keep spreading false information, more items reach sales icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif


Let's simplify it for you OJ, your Conclusion:

Anyone who bought a rick leather after 2010 is a moron.

Ask OJ about quality as he knows what it's all about dawg.

He owns some Balmain pieces so he KNOWs what true quality is.

Most importantly he always tells the "facts", so pay attention to his posts

 Could of = wrong  

 

 Could have = right

 Even I, a guy from 3rd world non English speaking fucked up country knows about it. It's just really irritating reading this 'could of' shit in every other post of any forum

Apologies.

 

I usually write could've, I just had a brain fart (due to IRL pronunciation) and typed it how I would say it.

 

But if we are in "school" now.... that isn't the only grammatical error in my post lol, there is quite a bit.

 

But honestly after my first line in typing a response I honestly was on cbfed mode and just banged it out.

 

But hey If you want to correct me, retype it and send via pm, and I'll repost it no worries.

 

Never doubt your own country mate, it's not where you live, it's what you do to help yourself and others around you in the end.

 

But thanks for correcting again icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif.

 

(check your pm)

 

Now someone bring back leather jacket posts to get thread back on track.

Great looking jacket yes but not as great as the silver zippers version. I wonder if it's possible to have the zippers switched out?

your assumptions on Balmain were pure bullshit so I didnt bother reading the rest of your post. I didnt understand the whole idea of your post because it wasn't worth reading

Aniline calf is back this season for Kazuyuki Kumagai biggrin.gif





Quote:
Aniline leather is a type of leather dyed exclusively with soluble dyes without covering the surface with a topcoat paint or insoluble pigments. The resulting product retains the hide's natural surface with the 'grain', i.e. visible pores, scars etc. of the complete original animal's skin structure.

Yeah, which is odd because they are so hard to find. I have been looking for years. I had to pay full price for a fw13/14 that was just stocked about a week or two ago. They will all be gone soon.

I stumbled onto a black Givenchy padded leather bomber yesterday and bought it on spur of moment. Very soft lamb... glove leather is what it looks like to me. Slim fit, runs short. I like it but, but haven't decided if I will keep. I later found a pic of it online:

for the record, it seems ro has switched things up a bit. the basic leathers have actually gone down in price (and quality a bit) over the last few years. the basics used to be 2700-2950 and are now about 2000-2200 with a few special leathers each season, i.e., cow leather, horse leather, shearling being in the 3.5-5k range. my cow leather stooges was 3750 and is heavy and thick as any ccp. my washed calf bauhaus is great style wise but pales next to the exploder era basics. i wish i had held onto some of my older stuff but i can say even the later season leathers that were great like hammered lamb are no longer available.

i think i have owned 25 ro leathers (down to 5, priorities priorities) and would rank them in the following from a somewhat subjective quality standpoint:

oiled calf (crust)
cow leather (last 3 seasons)
og calf (exploder/stag)
blistered over neoprene (exploder/stag)
hammered lamb (crust)
blistered(various seasons)

I sold both my oiled calf jackets, wish i hadn't, doubt they will reissue with that quality again but they get recycled so will get one second hand at one point. there is also a certain absurdity to having too many leather as from may-september in ny they are just too warm and not warm enough in dec-mid february. that means you get maybe 3 months use here. there is also an aesthetic impracticality in a lot of situations as anything but a stooges looks bad over a button down and you can't wear a leather over a blazer despite what a GQ spring preview may tell you.

I think people realized you have to kop right away at retail as soon as you see them in stock if you're smaller than a 52. That or scour various forums nonstop.
