    Maybe goths would be turned off and won't buy if the models smiled wearing those leathers?

    okay so I got this rick, follow up measurements and pics were good so hopefully it will work out. If not look for it on b&s lol.



    Good luck, if it fits, you'll love it.


    Also, new RO mid-collar? Not sure what model it is.

    Pockets are different on the exploder no? The pockets on those looks more like the mollino.

    My guess is 4-5k. So... yes.

    Some Augusta boots/shoes cost more than CCP so possibly even more than CCP [​IMG]



    I know [​IMG]


    I bet Augusta leather tops clock in around what m.a.+ clocks in at.

    I could use a mid-collar intarsia to complete the set. [​IMG] I'm contemplating about the shearling but I'm not sure I'd have much use for it in CA.

    Which is . . .

    About $500 off yahoo! JP or something, that's how I envision it. Design is all over the place and just plain lazy - it's got the epaulets, it's got the sleeve zips (and just them) that ape Lewis Leathers, it's got the random vertical pocket, it looks to be oddly proportioned, kind of a lazily designed high neck collar, it's very structured looking with classical details, but there's no precedent or strong logical basis for any of it, nothing by with to compare it to as a whole or even half, yet it's not abstract enough to be something that makes a whole statement from like 10 ft away (a la Rick, CCP, etc)
    Quality is obviously nice and you can tell (well, I can tell) that it's got the good stuff in it - but an attractive whole, it does not make.
