    Amazing deal, looks great. When you say the leather is similar to your Attachment, what does it feel like?

    It's a medium thickness calf leather, initially stiff but does get a bit softer over time on places where it's bending. Both have varying portions of grain and smooth leather, with no effort done to match them up. Both feel slightly dry, which I believe is a side-effect of the dying process, which is done after the garment is finished, leaving a slightly uneven dye across the jacket. If you're into rugged, distressed calf biker-style jacket, you couldn't go wrong with an Incarnation, Backlash, or some of the Attachment jackets - all very similar quality.

    Here's a picture of the Attachment jacket in question;

    Shouldn't Goodwear leather be able to do a bespoke jacket? Lots of variety in leather too.

    Hi all. Posting for the first time on this forum. Very interesting thread - been reading/watching it for a while. So many truly incredible jackets - inspired me to get myself a new one and today I bought it - calf high collar Incarnation http://www.project314.com/shop/mens/outwear/leather_jacket_13.html
    It was a good bargain I believe - approx. 1000 US dollars. Look forward to hearing what you think of it. Cheers.

    Ok, time for some major thanks to Brad-t.

    I've been wanting this KK Attachment jacket in brown for a long time, but it seemed completely sold out. When I asked about it in the Attachment thread months ago brad-t spotted one at a Russian store called Project 3,14 but the price was way too high for me (>$3k). Then a month or so ago I happened to check the store again and it's on sale, in my size no less.

    After receiving it today I would say it's now my favorite jacket. The leather they use (from Guidi) feels amazing.. super soft yet substantial, with a nice grain you can feel. I think it fits great, and I love the minimalist style.

    [​IMG]

    Here are some detail shots of the leather. The seams on this thing are incredible.. instead of a traditional seam with a folded edge inside for the stitching, the leather is just matched edge-to-edge and sewn using a series of very tight loops. It makes for a completely flat seam - no edge whatsoever. I'm guessing this is not nearly as strong as a traditional seam though. It feels solid when you tug on it, but I wouldn't go much further. Riri zips are great and the sleeves get a nice silhouette when the cuff zips are open.

    THANK YOU brad-t :) :)

    It's unlined except for the sleeves which have a very thin lining of cupro so you can slide your arm in and out easily.
