    maybe vincent & vincent, but seriously at that price point, there really isn't much

    i really love my vincent and vincent jacket. wished they had more presence, but i think i might have gotten too fat for mine.

    used attachment, backlash, and julius leathers are comparable to ToJ quality in that range

    do you mean that TOJ leather matches Backlash's in terms of quality ??

    Really like the Rick Intarsia but my wardrobe doesn't fit the RO aesthetic (not grungy/rock/drapey stuff). Think it'll work just as a leather jacket in general? I keep hearing RO needs more RO to look good.

    I think their jackets can be worn also with more casual wear, but be careful with formal wear and leather jackets, can end up looking a bit weird.

    The intarsia is like a leather track jacket, I think it goes pretty well with most casual clothes

    Depends on what you want, Backlash leather is pretty sick, though. The vegetable dyed german calf is pretty much the best material I can imagine making a jacket from I tried on a couple margiela 5-zip this weekend, man I love the design, but the fit just seems wacky. Maybe my shoulders just too small for it. The current season blacked out joint definitely fit the best, tho Like the, side profile just seems off, I never like how the sleeves or shoulders sit [​IMG] This is how it fits me too, like the body is perfect, but the shoulders are off by a half inch on either side, causing the whole thing to slide down when its unzipped [​IMG]

    exactly. Does backlash make XXL ? Their XL sizes look like 48 to me.

    are there any leathers out there that aren't TOJ that are ~1000 range that don't suck quality/design wise?

    what about brands which have new ones? i know s2a but anything else out there?
    I find it hard to take your question seriously when you say the stuff in bold together (0). I don't how I would answer.

    +1. People are too intimidated with wearing RO leathers, as long as you aren't going for the hi-collar or the shawl leathers and you'd be good to go. The intarsia moto, bomber and stooges are pretty tamed.

    went and picked through a whole rack of Rick leathers last week, was beyond disappointed with the leather quality. Stitchwork was fine, but I was hoping for the leather to be at least passable looking (like something I would wear, which can include lesser leather than I'm used to, if the design is nice) but it just wasn't. The oily/waxy calf was thin, like .8mm, the Stooges I handled had laughable leather - just really disappointing. I hadn't handled a Rick leather in a couple years and was sad to see these recent ones.

    that directed at me? I don't know what season they were, but they would've been either this season, last, or the season before last.

    of course, just curious cuz I read that quality has been dwindling. Even design wise I'd say they are lacking now, too.

    My oiled calf intarsia is very thick and substantial from last season, my oiled calf mollino from a season before isn't as thick as the FW10 oiled calf but still very substantial and feels great.
