    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.

    I love the jacket, but oddly enough I'm more interested in the jeans, where did you get them?

    Posted this in the Small Questions thread but surprisingly I did not get an answer.

    Anyways, where should I go to for minor leather alterations? Specifically speaking, I just need to have an extra button added onto a pocket flap.

    You could probably do it yourself if it was just one button. If not, find a leather alterations specialist - most tailors would not do it.

    I've been referred to LeatherCare Inc on Elliot Ave by someone I highly regard in the tailoring business, but I have not yet personally used them.
