wow wow Uncle Kunk don't touch me like that
Don't take my recommendations as gospel but try to understand the general direction. More rockerish, sleeker and with less reliance on knit ties and other incongruous accessories. If you want to keep it simple get some slim black jeans and a white tee from Uniqlo and some sleek black boots like chelseas or zip (no cuban heel if you dislike them).
Yeah, I totally see your point. Duly noted. Might be harder to pull off just the jacket and shirt in winter though with the colder temperatures, in which case I often throw a knit or sweater under there.
On a side note, what's your take on periodically treating leather jackets with leather lotion for nourishment and protection? Yay or nay?
Here's my favourite leather jacket I own, it's by Undercover...
Anyone has experience with Paul Smith leathers. I like the design and fit of this leather but im afraid the leather may be cheap and not worth it. its at Bloomingdales
Every once in a while I find some level of satisfaction in being a 6'1" waif.
I think it works with a variety of string- and percussion-related instruments. Maybe not brass and woodwinds, but definitely guitar, glockenspiel, harp, and a number of gamelan instruments. Probably not great for jug solos, though.
No experience with leathers (and I'm in no way a leather expert), but my general take is that Paul Smith stuff is going to be relatively nice, but you're almost definitely paying a premium for the brand name.
Re Paul Smith, I consider him high fashion so you will be paying a sizeable amount for just the name. That said his leather jacket could be surprisingly good I’d judge that based on the feel and fit.
Tried this jacket on in-store. Leather is on the thin side, good year-round in LA (where I tried it) but perhaps too thin in colder climes. Decent enough for the price and I like that it didn't have some extraneous details like epaulets and a belt. If I didn't have several leathers already I might have considered pulling the trigger.
This Aero collab from Epaulet this week looks pretty good.
Unionmade also has a cool looking suede trucker this season from Deveaux
I don't know anything about leather, but used to think lamb was softer and thus not as tough as cowhide. Now I read the copy for that Buck Mason twice-washed lamb leather and I'm all
Hit or miss. There is also John Richmond, a UK designer that sometime you can find a really good deal for quality leather on eBay.
Using conditioner is good but I don't think it will do much for your leather. It might have been pre-treated with waterproof poly-based coating. However, it may help against scratch and tear.
