    Zam Barret SS12 - looks like calf


    I can't really tell what kind of leather that is from the pic, lol. Not close enough to see the grain. Looks more like a washed lamb to me, but there are calf skins that look and feel like lamb too.

    yeah that might be calf, could be goat too though. Goat has that kind of grain naturally.

    I believe that zam barrett jacket is calf, although it may be goat. Either way, it has been washed and dyed by hand for an amazing texture. The best part of the jacket is actually the back, which forms to the body so so well.

    I would like someone to hurry up and post the SS12 Julius leather bras so that I'm not the one who has to.

    Think that's the scarstitch that eckblk and I have. It's a great jacket but one of the hook closures snapped off on my third wear :/ Not altogether surprising since the thing was super oxidized and object dying probably stressed it out. Still infuriating though since I paid lazzari "retail."

    CCP is willing to mail me out the part but recommends I send it out out to them since they have a clamp to "apply equal pressure when clamping it on." Told lazzari who is playing middle men in the discussions that I'd prefer to get 4x hooks + buy one of the clamps than mail it ;p They then insisted on me mailing it promising a 2 day turn around time. Somewhat skeptical given what I've heard about CCP turn around times.

    Ohwell most people dont even use the hook closures and the jacket is still sick.. Might just ride it out ocd kicks in and I finally mail it if they don't agree to my terms [​IMG]

    Is it thin enough to be worn in chilly summer nights?

    ^^ I think it's heavy a F**k. It's horse- I think of all Carols leathers, horse is the heaviest & kangaroo the lightest/thinnest. *INK's price is stupid low [​IMG] (for CCP)

    $5,200 USD is still pretty low? How much does it usually retail for?

    We (USA) get the Euro(asia) price- 3380eu/~ 4900usd

    Darklands = 3917eu

    Atelier = ~6200usd

    I paid 3400eu from Lazarri; duties paid.

    Don't they have an MSRP for these brands? I noticed this was the case with RO when it comes to buying outside of US, prices vary but there isn't a $1k+ difference. For the most part, prices throughout US retailers are pretty consistent.

    Nope- prices all over the place- US stores will have the highest prices. Darklands prices are getting up there too. I'd go with Lazarri or INK. PNP-Firenzes prices are fair too; with the VAT-discount.
