    Colour looked beautiful on the hanger especially with the darker streaks and stains
    But when I put it on and it was next my skin, the greenish tint made me look a bit ill ("sallow" is the best descriptor)
    It all depends on your own skin tone though. I have fairly pale skin with a slight yellowish tint maybe

    ROOMS will be much nicer than ROOLS though: the high collar doesnt work in rools, it looks terrible unzipped doesnt keep its shape.

    Rooms or bison is the best choice for lighter coloured leathers IMO. The white tanned cors seems to be very variable, comes out poorly sometimes

    so you pretty much looked like the CCP mustache man model standing under a bare fluorescent lamp or cold morning light in what looks like a moldy parking garage or a pissy tiled subway station?

    Any comments on the ROMPIB-PCC? I'm contemplating to either get a semi armhole leather or gloved titanium leather. My only concern with the semi armhole is the short body length. From my inquiries, the back length without the collar is between 23.5" to 24", which is fine with me. The one on grailed though is 21.5" only. Now that ends up being short for my liking.

    ROMPIB-PCC is donkey, correct? i handled the retractable donkey leather at atelier a number of years ago and personally did not like the hand of that leather. it felt dry, plasticky and a bit cheap.

    i have the cors version of the gloved titanium leather and think it's great. sadly, i've worn it only a hand full of times but have gotten a number of compliments when i have worn it.

    So I wore my tornado boots for the first time today. For a pair of boots, they feel so... light.

    Has anyone tried ordering the high neck in the FE-MALE version? Apparently the same jacket with shorter lengths - I'm 180cm and the stock version is too long for me in both torso and arms. Tried the womens in a 42 and it fit like a mens 44 in the shoulders and chest
