    I don't understand the appeal of some of those ccp jackets. It just looks really stiff and jagged. I know the leather is high quality, but the look of the piece kinda sucks. I'm sure it has taped seams, interlock stitching, object dying and all that other garbage though. Not my style. I like some of the other crazy expensive leathers i've seen better. Even if i was baller status i don't think i would drop the coin on ccp.

    Exactomundo Chronosan stiff and jagged leather is in no aspect desirable. It shouldn't hurt your arms to bend them. If you're going to shop at Atelier at least buy the m.a.+ leather that is much more supple and worth it.

    But if you never actually wear any of this shit, don't matter none.

    Keep buying that ill fitting stuff with some weird dyeing methods or stitching to justify it and you're gonna end up looking like faust.

    You mean dudes that are 5'7" and shaped like a square are not the type of people who can fit into Ann D. clothes as though "she cut it specifically from him"?

    With or without her lyrics on it?

    Horses is my fav song by her. I like when it gets all funky Mashed Pototaoey

    If we are debating the merits of Atelier leathers, the Julius ram jacket I tried on was the closest thing to leather heaven I've ever felt (and at around 3k IIRC, about half the price of some Poell ones). The leather is surprisingly thick and warm too. I'd take it over most comparable RO ones. [​IMG] (photo stolen from SZ)
