    Brad, this might be a bit too broad of a question, but do you happen to know if any attachment leathers are on an end of season sale or anything over at any of the japan shops? I can't really figure out where to start looking.

    Potentially looking to proxy an Attachment or KKA leather size 4 (i think) if they exist in this world.

    yeah, that's what I was worried about. My size 39/40 chest makes me sad.

    I tried on a size 4 KK leather at Lane Crawford in Hong Kong. All the Attachment stuff is normally very pricey outside Japan though.

    I'm not a huge fan of the Attachment MA-1s, they're super tight and kinda poofy, which if you're super skinny is alright, but if you're even like normal weight they kinda look a little shrunken. I guess it's just a personal preference, flight jackets look good kinda slouchy in my opinion, especially with the padding

    I've never seen the attachment in real life, but I have noticed that it looks amazing on a coat rack, but weirdly poofy yet tight in fit pics. Maybe it's just the fit pics I've seen though.

    It depends on how you want to wear it, but most Attachment pieces tend to fit pretty similar through sizes because of the high armholes and tight chests. It might give you a bit of breathing room, but it's still the same piece./

    Attachment N3Bs, on the other hand, are absolutely dope

    Google image search for Attachment N3b

    I am not a fan of the flight jacket either but I seem to recall some people earlier in the thread were looking for them.

    Does anyone know if Attachment ever made a faux leather black DR biker jacket?

    I can't imagine Attachment has ever used faux leather, but I could be wrong. Why?

    Yea neither can I, but some dude is selling one he believes to be faux, though he can't read the tags to be sure. Zips look like old RiRi zips that used to be on W+H hoodies, which leads me to believe it may be fairly old and so perhaps they did use faux leather way back when
