    The stock patterns for ZB could probably pass for slim by western standards, but if you're used to the asian sizes that dominate most high-end leather it'll definitely be roomy. He can do MTM sizing within reason though if you contact him directly (SZ is best for this - he posts a lot there).

    I have one of his jackets from this season. I wouldn't put it up there with something like Julius, but it's solid workmanship and there isn't any real price markup based on "vision" a la something like Obscur or Rick. Also he's a pretty chill dude. If you like some of his stuff I say go for it.

    It's Burberry London but this shearling sheepskin looks pretty dope.

    Yeah I am happy they seem to want to continue the shearling/Aviator thing. It works as spread through diffusion lines. Remind me of a few times when McQ felt like it was repeating popular tamer Alexander McQueen options.

    If ToJ makes a shearling like that it'll be insta-kopped!

    Depends. His tailoring and construction work are really top notch -- the only difference between him and some other brands, is he uses premium materials, but not necessarily as many experimental fabrics/materials which helps keep the retail prices down (ref: LUC, avantindietro etc)
    He does actually have a pretty strong aesthetic/vision going, just perhaps not as otherworldy as julius or rick.
    However he isn't japanese slim, but his pants do have a pretty strong taper (looser top block, slim down lower legs)

    A lot of 'shearlings' on the market aren't even real shearling - they're poly fleece lining on regular lambskin. Given the quality of Burberry, I'd say that's probably a case of that. You can do a lot more stuff with the concept and make them look cooler that way - but there's something next level about wearing shearling on your body, it's so fucking warm and it's like an UGGs for your chest. Pure corn.

    for me, THIS is the perfect leather jacket! although you can't see the whole jacket... I love the colour, shoulder details and the collar! I've been looking for this jacket (and similar ones) for a long time now without any success - has anybody got an idea?? I think it could be Diesel or Goosecraft...

    Incarnation Guidi baby calf FW11


    Incarnation jackets are amazing. I think that it is a class above Backlash, with better treatments and amazing colors. Prices are up there, but they are far superior to Rick Owens ( which are about 95% embarrassing.) And unlike some of the "ninja" leathers, they are tough as nails (at least those I've seen) and can be worn in any number of ways.
