    Eck, can't you just remove the tag?

    It would leave a hole in the leather I imagine.

    That tag really kills it. And yes, you cannot just remove it.

    I would probably try to sew the leather string ends to a fixed point on the linning, therefore out of sight when worn but still there rather than cut or torn, I also imagine you could just cut them with thick scissors close to their beginning if you really dont care or bothers you that much.

    I hear you ^, but if on deep sale or if it really really bothered you but was otherwise your grail, then why not? I figure its either do something like that, learn to live with the tags as is or look for another jacket, right? (tbh I'd probably try to see if I could live with them first then if not try sew or cut options)

    I'm probably going to pass although the price is really great right now at A- I'm probably just longing for the OG overlock.

    Really don't need anymore leathers either; will have 5 come January.

    OG overlock is hard to top
    I like that bbs but not sold on the collar and all the tassels/pulls

    I already have the scarstitich so getting an overlock is pointless really- I'm just looking for trouble at the this point.

    If I were to order one- I'd get col 19 or 8- maybe black with white stitching, who knows

    Just get them in different color ways. The white stitching with the overlock is really part of what makes it amazing. Though the fit is cleaner on my scarstich.... the scarstitching really isn't mind blowing on it.

    Somedays I want a juicy fencing...

    I wasn't aware that Balenciaga made a similar jacket. Just saw this one and liked it.

    I like jackets with a lot of detail on them and I think bodaskins just did it right.
