    ccp leathers are so thick they are stiff
    i would suspect that they are extremely difficult to pull off because they really define your frame for you, unless they are a perfect fit, you have the right kind of body

    as you can see, although this guy does a good job with the fit, it's still very...pronounced.

    as said they can also be thick and soft

    I have never seen anyone well and truly really pull off CCP and look remotely appealing, besides Brad Pitt, Jude Law, and the black guy from Atelier. Oh, and still from sufu, but he quit clothes.

    Anybody who has sent six thousand dollars to CCP for a leather jacket is pulling CCP off until he jizzes all over his shoes and sells those on for an additional $2,000.

    Actually that fit pic does not do the jacket justice or it doesnt fit properly at SA.
    I tried it on in flesh when I visited Darklands and I can truely say, I've never worn any jacket which fit me better. It was a bummer to put on / off and kind of uncomfortable to try on, but when I had it on I suddenly was able to move in it. And it sure looked great. Too bad there is sth like a price tag.

    pre wash

    post wash

    decided to submerge this jacket in warm water for 15 minutes, threw it washing machine on spin cycle to get rid of excess water for 3 minutes, then hung it out to dry, as i wanted it to shrink a little, plus lose its sheen

    results are exactly what i wanted, it shrunk a little, especially in the body, plus it now looks like a deep matte black

    and yeh, my zipper is undone

    probably shrinked half a size, and stretched a little out after wearing it while damp

    i found the jacket a little boxy due to the armholes not being as high as i wanted them to be, which btw was my fault

    i just wanted the body to shrink a little, which it obviously has

    a friend recently asked me to wash their jacket as they were hoping it would shrink everywhere except the arms, which they felt was a little short

    before hanging it up to dry i stretched out the sleeves and added half an inch...jacket shrunk half a size
