    I saw the "Custom Collection" she just started putting out and thought they might be in a "stretch" price range for me. But they still start at $2500, and I recall bespoke starts at like $5500.

    I have no issue with that price, it's just more than I can justify, despite the fact that I've spent well more than $2500 on leather jackets in total, and in fact plan to spend around $2500 on the jackets I still plan to buy. (Thedi DR + Aero Board Racer, maaaybe a sheep Addict) I might change my tune if I saw them in person, but I believe you've gotta drop a deposit to even stop by her trunk show.

    I really like her designs. Obviously some of the outputs are gaudy but that reflects her clientele more than her. She's put out a lot of stuff that to my eye has shades of Tom Ford, Ghesquiere-era Balenciaga, Decarnin's Balmain and sometimes a hint of Hedi's Dior...simple but not minimalist, sincerely flattering in their cuts, and sharp, sharp, sharp throughout.

    Sorta think the same thing about Stoffa. Beautiful jackets at a steep but entirely justified price.

    Planning on stopping in at Langlitz Leathers in the near future. Excited about that.

    Varvatos always gives me a 'coolest dad at the barbecue' vibe, but the creepy leather here sort of counteracts that.

    Out of curiosity, how did folks here settle on artisanal to describe an aesthetic?

    It was “baller” now it’s artisinal. Artisinal made sense given the descriptions given on sites and obviously a lot more human touch than machine.

    I looked. Seemed so plausible. That’s funny.

    Really tempted to try this jacket again. Would probably go with the AD02 next time though, this one wore a little too long for me

    You keep bringing me back to Addict. Not sure if it'll be a center zip (AD-01) or an AD-02L, but I figure there's a sheep Addict in my future.

    Was poking around and found this pic...they look great in this orange, though that's gotta be a bit of a challenge to wear:
