    I’d like to stop cluttering the pages about a difference of opinion.

    He may sound nick-picky but it's his right. People don't have the time to understand every artist and those who claimed to know the artist himself could also be very wrong. I think what we deem as truth often is both temporary and contextual. An example is if we could ask Van Gogh, Rembrandt, and Picasso, each one to create a portrait of the same person/object. In my view, I think Leon Emanuel Blanck still use the basis of anatomical focus, which is similar to other brands such as Devoa. He clearly built his DNA on a particular base/build so it does not work on everybody but he could always expand later. I guess his illustration is the concept of distorted/twisted image. It's not necessary practical or convenient, but few may find it intriguing

    Can't it be traditional AND still look fucking stupid at the same time ?
    I mean he said he liked it , not that he wanted it because it was traditional

    id be interested to know how Scottish tartan became traditional for leather jacket lining
    I know it was for waxed jackets but they are more obviously suitable to and heavily used in Scotland

    Or are you also talking from your anus , and you just made the story up ?

    Did research online, exchanged emails with Aero and visited their workshop the next time I was in Scotland, where I spent half a day getting the fit and details right, choosing the leather and visiting their archive.

    Ordering through Thurston is a good idea if you live in the USA. It should still be possible to obtain leather samples from Aero.

    Well, I think we can all agree that this is both non-traditional and stupid. Maybe it has a tartan lining, though.

    So I recived the Levi's jacket.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I actually like it a lot. I have had issues getting good lightning, so it's pretty poor lightning.

    Whats your thoughts?


    e/ looking at other pictures, it seems like my collar is either not lined up or my shoulders are sloping. I looked at them up close and it seems like collar is off, it might have to do with me putting it "right" with force, but this is the way it was out of the box.

    You can see that it's not off at all here.
