    Dude, just mail it in now and get it over with. It's summer anyway.

    Is it thin enough to be worn in chilly summer nights?

    ^^ I think it's heavy a F**k. It's horse- I think of all Carols leathers, horse is the heaviest & kangaroo the lightest/thinnest. *INK's price is stupid low [​IMG] (for CCP)

    $5,200 USD is still pretty low? How much does it usually retail for?

    We (USA) get the Euro(asia) price- 3380eu/~ 4900usd

    Darklands = 3917eu

    Atelier = ~6200usd

    I paid 3400eu from Lazarri; duties paid.

    Don't they have an MSRP for these brands? I noticed this was the case with RO when it comes to buying outside of US, prices vary but there isn't a $1k+ difference. For the most part, prices throughout US retailers are pretty consistent.

    Nope- prices all over the place- US stores will have the highest prices. Darklands prices are getting up there too. I'd go with Lazarri or INK. PNP-Firenzes prices are fair too; with the VAT-discount.

    yeah that might be calf, could be goat too though. Goat has that kind of grain naturally.

    drew any experience with buffalo? another one of the leathers coming out that season will be washed buffalo...

    Not that I'm dropping a few g's on a leather any time soon but Zam's logo with a christian cross is a genuine deal breaker for me.

    yup. also, all of his "blessings."

    Yeah, I dunno. Even if you're a militant Dawkins fanboy, I think you'd have to concede that no atheists were harmed in the production of that jacket.

    I'm aware of the separation between thing and man, here; the constant, passive proselytizing is, however, both a source of discomfort and a bit disturbing. You can rip of the tag, yatta yatta yatta, and it's not like the putting on the jacket instantly makes you a child of jesus (nor does it make the jacket look any worse from the outside), but still. Maybe "dealbreaker" is harsh - it's not like I have a fear of the thing, but I do have an inescapably visceral reaction to the dogma. Honestly, if I didn't browse SZ and read all of his posts, I probably wouldn't even equate the tag with religion. Obviously, I've never met the man, and from the little that one can glean from forum posts, Zamb sounds like good people and all that, and he makes interesting clothing. I'm all for disassociation, but I'm also just not sure why it needs to be a central part of a brand image (perhaps it's not ought to be?). It's simply a touch that I could do without.
