cant seem to find many fit pics of their jackets...they seem to be cut very short
Nah I am 6'1 and the length was fine but you should see them irl cause the cuts are so different.
edit: just remebered that indeed the rider jacket was a little short on me
incarnation SS11 styles use thinner leathers than FW10. The SS11 riders uses the calf 0.8mm for example (for FW10 it uses the baby calf 1.2mm same as the leather shirt or front zip jacket - these are quite thick and heavy).
BTW the caucasian model for SS11 is ruining all the fit pics, the jackets all look like shit on him.
The master himself :
Baby calf 1.2mm - color/texture are pretty accurate
Emixam, where did you get the pics, link?
can't remember, they are pretty old...must be from Toojenis.com ?
Incarnation is serious shit, you are making me want to go to Tokyo this weekend just to head to Lift to see the new collection and try it on
yeh, get this beauty (15)
I hope youre being sarcastic. That jacket looks horrendous.
it's an awesome jacket that is in a terrible picture
I rarely wear it, maintenance since ok but then I don't do anything special to my leathers.
No pics I think, I posted a crappy one but it was before I stretched it a little bit (first wearing) and the pose was awkward so it doesn't really showcases the jacket at its best. Can't find it now anyway...
i remember the pic, i actually thought it looked quite good
i like the idea of owning a jacket in that milk color, but actually wearing it is another thing
is it a hard color to wear?
+1, thought the exact same thing
So, random question. I'm visiting Sweden in about a week, and while Stockholm wasn't on the itinerary I was thinking of dropping by to visit the Obscur flagship store. My tastes are generally too minimalist to really get into the whole gothninja xXxSephirophxXx thing, but I've always offhandedly followed the brand for reasons passing understanding. I think probably because while RO at least makes some token effort at making things you can wear in public while still taking yourself seriously, Obscur gives no fucks. Which is a little endearing, in a sort of perverse meta way.
Anyway. Nobody I know actually owns anything Obscur though, which is not at all surprising. Has anyone who has handled it able to comment on the quality of the leathers and the stitching? I would assume it's not on par with Japanese brands in in the vein of wjk, though I heard he's using a new supplier of hides this year. One of the FW 11 designs is appealing to me but I'm not sure if it's worth the trip.
I've heard Obscur quality is pretty decent on a lot of their jackets.....definitely not 'bad'.
