    We're planning MTO Trousers to go live next week. Once that goes up you'll be able to customize all of the details, but they'll be a $30 upcharge per unit. So if you're good with the stock details that we've always had on Rudy's, then placing the order before next Tuesday will avoid the upcharge.

    Also, there will be people who buy this and wear the heck out of it and it's going to look, what's that word... bonkers:

    Have to admit I'm tempted myself.

    Inside light Wilshire fits

    Oisin was kind enough to model his Wilshire jeans at the store. Was a little late, so my apologies for the indoor lighting. He's worn them for about a month and there's already some killer honeycombs behind the knees...

    The indigo restock and new Grey & White Selvedge varieties should be here in a little over a week.

    This is one of those things that I had not realised that I needed in my life, but which suddenly seems mandatory. Are there any pictures of what the deerskin might look like after wear?

    Oh my god, we are all absolutely in love with the Deerskin jacket!

    I'm burning the midnight oil tonight, so I won't go into too much detail now, but the hand on this leather is incredible. We got a small quantity of first quality American deerskin off-price and we were able to make 9 units for a lower retail than cowhide. Deerskin jackets are expensive, and they're not very common - especially in a clean, slim shape like this. Here in the States you often see the good stuff used in Western wear, or you'll see lower quality skins with corrected grains used in big, ill-fitting pieces from the likes of Wilsons.

    Deerskin is a big thing in Japan - especially among the denim heads and streetwear guys. I really noticed it when I lived in Osaka back in the days, and that was part of what attracted me to making this jacket. For anyone who buys it: I can pretty much guarantee that you have never put on a more supple and gorgeous-feeling leather jacket. It will absolutely blow you away.

    And aged pictures are strangely hard to come by, but I found these from an Ebay listing for a deerskin coat from the 1960's. I can't be positive, but I'm fairly sure that it was a similar natural shade when it started out. The leather will age to a darker golden brown with wear - and will darken more quickly the more that you condition it. Something important is to note how clean and uncracked the skin is on this vintage jacket. Deerskin and Elkskin hold their finish more consistently than cow or calf, and a little bit of care will really retain its surface.

    If these jackets are any indication of the quality of the upcoming denim jacket and noragi, I'm beyond hyped.

    Holy shite, that deerskin jacket! I may have just found my "2014 Frivolous Thing to Spend Part of my Tax Return On"!

    Also, Mike & crew, are there any black leather jackets in the pipeline?
