Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 587

How do you even die a leather jacket, do you do it yourself?

 

Also, has anyone made alterations to a leather jacket, and know of a place online I could send one?

 

What type of leather and season is this jacket from?

It was originally beige, but was dyed a dark brown. So I'm not sure if that's the reason why it feels really weird of leather, almost pleather like. There's also no real leather smell either. Since it's calf, I know it's not supposed to feel as soft/smooth/supple as lambskin, but from what I remember compared to the calfskin black 5zip I tried on at a Barney's once, this isn't anywhere near as soft/smooth either. But again, could be due to the dye, so I'm not sure.

Would take it to a department store and ask, but there's no high end store that carries MMM here as far as I know. Was thinking perhaps a cobbler would be of some help?

Here's an Imgur album with a few pictures: http://imgur.com/a/dEeLO#sgmHzgi

I really appreciate all the help you guys can give!

it looks real

I've got this same jacket, it's calf and I believe it's last year's version.

Hows it fit seems to run small for the size?

I'm 5'11 with a 39 in. chest and the size 50 fits me perfectly.  Lengths are great for both the body and the sleeves and the sleeves aren't too baggy like they were for that guy a couple pages back.

Thinking about picking up a 5-zip

Anyone here an expert? Either an AW06 in brown with Riri zips, an AW08 with regular zips in black - both calf. Or possibly a newer season one. I have a lot of black leathers, so the brown might be nice, but the 5-zip does look good in simple black. Hmm!

edit: Here's the color of the brown

Solid jacket, considering buying it myself. Wish I hadn't pulled on that Balmain jacket. It it doesn't sell soon I am going to make the seller a serious offer.

Back Length 62 cm (24.4 inch)

Chest Circumference 102 cm (40.2 inch)

Sleeve Length 86 cm (33.9 inch)

Seems huge for a 44/XS. Can anyone confirm this?

seems right, this season they run big.
