    "That's nice; collar looks a bit strange.."

    Yea, the color is kind of peculiar - It resembles old school denim jacket collars. But I do like it.

    Speaking of Boris - my favorite overlock jacket from him is this one:

    I'm not sure at which point these super distressed/ornate leathers became unappealing to me, but I can't stomach most of them anymore. The design of Carol is minimal enough to keep it from going into try-hard territory, but those incarnation and BBS jackets ...

    Sweet! Kind of curious, how does those elbow details work? Is it custom for you so that it hits your elbow at the right place all the time?

    Those aren't MTM- the scarstitch is quite common but the gloved high neck is rare; it's also object tanned as opposed to object dyed so it can't be special ordered at just anytime.

    As for getting the articulated elbows to sit perfectly, I guess I just got lucky of both pieces. I never really heard of the elbow being off or a problem but I guess if you are extremely short or tall maybe a "special graded" leather must be requested.

    +1, when I first saw them I had the impression they looked tacky and had way too much going on (wrinkling, that awful stitching, little add on bits), still feel that way. Price makes them even less attractive

    The angle of the shot on that blue ma+ looks sick, too bad the sleeves are so long, I just know the sleeves will proabably end up covering my hands entirely.
    The 13AW BBS overlock looks pretty cool, but the elbows from the back look so weird from ArchiveSF's pics.

    Doubt it's available anywhere but If anyone knows where to get it, please tell.
