    Trust me, the snaps on those SLPs are just about as big. I just came from Barneys and SLP store and checked all those leather, the only leather that is even on par with the Prorsum is the thick and stiff calfskin biker, the L17 iirc.

    yeah I think they just look bigger due to slimmer lapel/collar vs the slp

    but tbh if the potential buyer is a slim dude prorsum is the ticket but if hes chunky then I'd go with something else

    You guys are right. It's a leather jacket illusion. The details are all smaller so the snaps look big, lol.

    Is that from wearing it or pre-distressed?? If the latter, pretty cool

    What's the black line, though?

    The line looks like it might be calfhair or horsehair?

    Couple weeks ago I got both rain and pulled pork on my suede T1. No rain spots, but I now have a waxed suede cuff on one arm. so edgy. maybe I should barbecue the whole jacket.

    I feel sorry for the poor gator that gave its life to make such a garment.

    I thought I posted a reply but it must not have gone thorugh.

    It's a 2 year old jacket that has been in 2 motorcycle accidents. The owner is OK. The Shinki Horsehide veg. tanned leather is lightly dyed so it showed distress and wear very quickly as well. The scraped creases near the elbow remind me of damage to tree bark, which is pretty cool.

    This is probably the only time I will like a leather jacket fastened with buttons.

    Ah, my jacket. Looks better IRL. Don't know if it's an illusion, but it seems much thinner leather than mine.

    My latest acquisition: MA+ horse biker. The pics do not do the jacket justice. The color is black and has a beautiful sheen to it.
