    wow. thanks. 3000 for the leather jacket?

    You can get them used on Yahoo Japan for closer to 1k, or hit a proxy for Japanese retail which would be closer to like 2300. Some of the more out-there stuff (like the shredded leather shirt [​IMG] ) makes it to Atelier's sales which can be as much as 60 percent off.

    Apologies, I didn't know which way you were going. May be abeit cheaper some places overseas, but it's roughly line for what they go for. Obviously, some escape into the inevitable secondhand market. Atelier NY is a stocklist stateside as well, very likely a few others I don't know of the top of my head.

    I liked this one from that Benjamin Button movie. I think it's a Belstaff but I'm not sure.
    Belstaff did a promo and provided all the jackets for the movie. Their site has always been horrible and extremely slow.
    Yep, I was impressed with the wardrobe throughout the movie. Really liked the jacket he wore on the Indian. http://www.luxurylaunches.com/celebr...y_belstaff.php And a thread that might be of interest to those that dig the Panther: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=52480

    IMO this is the greatest thread on the board. Major inspiration for a leather jacket lover like me.

    Well, it's soon going to be that time of year when I start thinking about adding something really high quality and iconic to my collection. It's going to be a contest between Aero and Belstaff, but I'm open to finding something different as long as it is a classic and I can wear it forever. They'll be coming into stores soon, and of course vintage is worth looking into.

    That second leather kunk is perfect for what I like. Great fit too.

    I love RO leathers, jeans and t's.

    Blackscissors MTO is probably what I'm going to do.

    I'll use the MTO service that they have to get a slim, high neck leather.

    Yes, it arrived today actually. Unfortunately it is HUGE on me. I haven't decided whether to have them remake it and wait another 3 months or just sell it.



    Thanks gdl. I gulped a little at the price I paid for it two years ago, and the going price on ebay has doubled since then. They are definitely overpriced on the secondary market.


    Any update for this, id love to see a fit pic.

    I own a few leathers (three+ 1 leather shirt). Ideally I'd only own one but I'm not sure which ones to sell.

    Didn't find pics of the other two but I'm pretty sure I posted some pics at some point (Lad Musician horse leather cafe racer and a vintage one with 4 pockets).

    lul. Anyhow, I'm not going to start a train of hate, or otherwise. The jacket's prob nice quality... Maybe, a suggestion to size the jacket to your frame better in the future. See how it fits in the forward pics.

    im guessing your talking about mine? its a size 38 and when it zipped up it fits perfect, i wouldnt be able to fit into it if it were any smaller.. the pics with it unzipped probably make it look bigger than it is.
