    Buy 3 TOJs.

    Besides that I've always liked the color Bottega. Belstaff has had some cool ones as well. It just depends what type of jacket. Bomber/moto/rider?

    thats actually a great point, just look for some jackets you like and see if TOJ makes something similar, especially if you dont want anything distressed and prefer the classic look. There are quiet a few options...

    Yup. But I don't see the clean look to it honestly, seems really busy. It's cool just I don't see the versatility to it. But it ain't my money.

    I handled that studded perfecto in person and it was really shitty. The leather was ehhh and the studs were really heavy. The floor model had its lining totally destroyed on the inside just from being tried on by different people, what a joke. Retail was ~$5k too iirc.

    A lot of the studded stuff is probably DYI, just buy a jacket you like, buy a bunch of studs and start sticking 'em through. It's that whole punk aesthetic.

    You're not wrong, but that's kinda the whole point.

    Thank you for the input so far!! The prorsum stuff seems great: http://25.media.tumblr.com/ca07f7c664e22009a3dbfec6c2afe6df/tumblr_mjxa5zovZ31s190mzo1_500.jpg
    But unfortunately there isnt anything interesting this season.

    Does anyone have experience with making a custom leather jacket at aero leathers? Their jackets are from heavy horsehide or steerhide, it seems like they are more on the practical side for actual bikers with boxy chest area, do you think they are able to get this slim leather "rockstar" look?

    does balmain do any special leathers such as horse or kangaroo or is it mostly lamb?
