    Apologies for the terrible pic, but, wow, just got back from checking out the Cornelian Taurus personal order and the new leather for SS16 is amazing - natural indigo dyed leather that is processed like Japanese lacquer (urushi). The texture combined with the depth of color from the natural indigo is just unbelievable and one of the coolest leather treatments I've seen. Very tempted to grab a coincase or something small just to get in on the action even though it's still (understandably) a bit pricy at double the cost of standard leathers.

    Again, iPhone pic in bad light but it's a true, deep blue. @Synthese @LA Guy et al would appreciate the craftsmanship of this

    Here's the urushi in black, imagine this in an uneven indigo.. Apparently he's been trying to get this right for awhile now

    Custom orders only for now, delivery in March
    Coincases are 38,000 yen, wallets around 70,000, bags 100,000 on up (so double usual prices).
    Cutoff is tmrw if anyone wants me to sneak them in an order :) otherwise usual stockits should have some stuff

    Does anybody actually hem the pants with super long inseams discussed in this thread to control the massive stacking? Is it even possible (some of them look like they flare a bit at the very bottom)? Is it just sacrilegious?

    Guys... i know the sales thread will be cluttered as fuck with random shit...

    if anyone sees stuff thats on the topic of what we speak of here can you post the good sale leads... if no one wants to do this, we can pm each other just lmk know if anyone is interested and we can have a sub thread or a private pm with folks.

    Anyone have recommendations for a large scarf? Co-worker brought in an amazing handmade blanket scarf today and now I need one.

    ^Faliero Sarti has the softest scarves I've handled, but you need to see it in person and there's a lot of different materials. Stephan Schieder, LUC, Daniel Andresen. There's also a lot of under the radar designers that only(?) make scarves, by which I mean just go into random shops in Tokyo and touch them all.

    Also, Hotoveli sale 30% off started. A1923 has officially entered the retail pricing scheme.
