    I have a suit. The quality seems good and I've noticed no wear and tear yet, but I have never dry cleaned (its all taped seams). The fabric I have is reminiscent of something CCP might use but it has stretch which is especially nice in the pants. I have noticed some of the canvassing In the inside of the shoulder sometimes itches through the much less traditional lining.

    The cut and sizing is broadly similar to CCP for the jacket but the 48 I have is somewhere in between a 46 and a 48 which is perfect for me. I don't know if it's the same story for shirts.

    C. Diem in its original form has long since closed up shop - the man behind it has moved onto other projects and many associates have their own brands. One of them recently purchased the rights to the brand and is making a small collection of pieces supposedly in the original factories, including shoes. Check the baller boot thread and inquire with PnP firenze if you're interested - I'll wait to see what the quality is like before moving. Some things are better left to lie

    These sizes pop up frequently on YJP, often in good condition

    much difference in Boris leathers between S/S and F/W collections, in particular the horse J2, or just the usual variations season to season/batch to batch à la Carol?

    ^ At first blush it instantly reminds me of Deepti's silver one. Would appreciate the take of someone more knowledgeable of both brands. I think I like this one better -- enjoy the sportier details and the zipper placket.

    From Ink's ig. Still Taichi, but even more reminiscent of Deepti: this is silver oxidized.

    The little velcro tabs at the cuff ruin it. You've spent all this time and energy in fabric research and at the end of it all you slap on some shitty little pieces of velcro? C'mon.

    And then there's this. A bit more mainstream, but goddamn.

    Just contact him directly if you're interested in ordering as you can get it done to your specifications.
