    So, that's an unlined jacket. Considering my leather jacket collection stands at zero, and my unlined leather jacket collection is also at zero, what's everyone's thoughts on how wearable an unlined jacket is? Comfortable with a tee underneath? Will the lack of a light lining make it actually wear warmer, or make it more likely to need cleaning? Will the lack of lining make me wanna scratch my own skin off?

    Cause to me this is about the best looking jacket I've seen (personal opinion obviously), and I'd be looking to pull the trigger while the Aussie dollar is still worth more than the USD...

    Cheers,
    Tim.

    I wouldn't want to wear an unlined jacket. Kinda weird on the arms. There was that Quai de Valmy member's only style leather made by Seraphim awhile back that ended up hitting rock bottom prices, mainly because it was unlined, IMO. Why they would do that, I have no idea, it's not as if it's a tailored jacket with breathable, light cloth.

    I believe Incarnation has one this season that's unlined as well.

    I kind of like the idea, in a raw CCP drip sneaker sort of sense, but I wouldn't actually want to wear one.

    How easy is it for a tailor to add a lining in?

    At least in the USA, the use of the phrase "Made in USA" is regulated by the government. I would imagine similar regulations exist in other countries.

    http://business.ftc.gov/documents/bus03-complying-made-usa-standard

    In the case of newer Julius leathers, "Assembled in Japan" likely means the majority of the work is done in China and some lesser amount of final assembly is done in Japan.

    Additionally, why do only the Julius leather goods say "Assembled in Japan" while the other Julius pieces say "Made in Japan". Are we to believe this is just an arbitrary decision that means nothing?

    This enforcement policy describes in more detail the difference between "assembled" vs. "made".....

    I daresay because Japan is not known for its high quality goat and lamb hides and must source them from Italy like everyone else?

    You're seriously pushing the theory that, not only is Julius outsourcing construction, but they're outsourcing leather construction rather than linen?
