    @sinnedk if what you say about either the boots or the jacket is true, then you will soon be reading the sad tale of the demise of that/those piece(s) at my harsh and neglectful hand. The seams have already had to endure a bit of stress during the rather demanding stretching/break-in period. And so far my boots look great, although I haven't beaten on them in any meaningful way yet.

    Friend you can beat those ma+ backzips to hell and they'll be fine. It's the best backzip boot out there. I just prefer them to be clean. If you keep yours dirty they'll just look dirty but one wipe from a cloth win some water and you are good.

    Gotcha, looking forward to seeing them age. Both of my bison boots (backzip and moto) are looking great with a little mileage on them, so these should be similar.
    And dude, stop buying boots and go get that ma+ biker jacket! You'll love it! Grail up!

    re: SS stuff, local store got some of the Arts & Science stuff and Bergfabel. Also saw some at Universal Lounge. Not really impressed with Berg for the price but the A&S stuff is great.

    At least three stores here are stocking Casey Casey this season, I really like the fabrics and cuts.

    O's first season (new project by Jan Jan Van Essche) got picked up by a store too, wish I had known last week or I wouldn't have spent so much in Tokyo...
    handknit linen tunic looks good, would kop a wide shirt had I the money.

    Also liked what I saw from ANSNAM. Didn't care for the LUC or Paul Harnden buys but that's just me probably. Some meh pictures from the store: https://www.facebook.com/Teatro-De-Sale-412980242097474/

    About as close to perfect as can be achieved (for a rumpled linen blazer).

    If anyone is looking for a Layer 0 blazer in sail hemp or the new needle punched wool in size 48 (fits 46), send me a pm. Finally accepted that they're a little too cropped for me [​IMG].

    I'm a 48 and have the same sail hemp blazer in size 52. For this model you really should go two sizes up.

    I guess that's fine if you have the shoulder width and chest size to fit two sizes up. I don't.

    Size 48 will fit tts 46, 5'10" or shorter.
