    couple of questions for you denim gurus....

    1. does this look like a legit source for reasonably priced Nudie jeans?
    http://www.jepboutique.com/Merchant2...ory_Code=nudie

    2. recently bought this diesel 'jubeth' jacket in vegas-- one of my favorite casual items ever purchased. i really like the zippered sleeves, and can wear it with a t-shirt, buttondown, or even with a shirt and tie [if you're weird enuf to try it]

    [​IMG]

    any ideas for something similar to this jacket? would like to buy something kinda like it.

    3. what are the general thoughts on Rock & Republic jeans? also while in vegas, liked them so much i ended up buying two pairs (both in the 'henley' model, to different styles). I know, overpriced and already broken-in/ various washes, but what do you think of the brand, etc.?

    thanks!

    I think R&R makes very elegant jeans, fitting and flattering. Also their washes aren't particularly far out and overdone in general, which is always a good thing. Leave that kind of thing to A&F.

    Can't find a stock photo right at the minute, but I have several different versions of G-Star's 'Studs' jacket - one in distressed denim, one in black, and one in army green. Slim fit, like your Diesel jacket, but with a cafe racer style collar. And, luckily, almost logo-free, except for a tiny tag on one arm.

    I'll take some photos when I get a minute.

    Yes there is a VB line in their products, however those are crap, their more standard Roths are way better. Judge not the company by the dirt that VB wears (while looking slutty and not-hot in the process)

    If Rock and Republic tone down on the logos, they would be pretty good.

    The Nudies look legit, but you should try to find them from a european shop.

    oipolloi.com (uk) has dry selvage ralph's for almost the same price as you are paying there.

    As for the rest, I wouldn't.

    If you want a good take on a biker jacket, take a look at a brand I am repping www.michaeljkrell.com. Check out the pics on the site. It has the arm zips, as well as a really interesting pocket detail. As luck would have it, a couple of samples he sent me were a little too big in the shoulders for my liking, and I asked him to redo them for me, but I've seen your build (you are a shorter, muscular 40-42 R, right?,) and the samples (they are in a great chocolate brown - I have a version of the "denim" jacket in the same material and color) would probably be right for you. They retail a little more than the Diesel jackets, but are really a lot better constructed, with Italian made buttons, full bemberg lining, and terrific finishing and trims. Probably as well constructed as Rag & Bone jackets, though the cutting is still being played around with. If you are interested, PM me, and I'll see what I can do.

    Hey, can you tell Michael not to resize my damn browser? I hate that. EVERYONE hates that.

    I like that jacket, though.

    Urban Outfitters is a good store for odd items. A lot of the times, I found a couple of White Label Nike Tees. If the shipping was monsterous, I'd buy one.

    is this the jacket you have?

    http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shopp...roductID=10104

    Yep, that's the one(s) I have - although it looks like UO have marked the price up a tad.

    I like the look of the 555 Soul jacket you picked out. Side vents - it's very you.
