    ^^ nice outfit! it's a little different from the scarstitch but i like the minimalistic look. it looks like it will be a pain to break in - from second picture.

    Well, admittedly, I don't know what the fuck RO style is, outside of ill fitting and being over priced. But both Schott and Aero will mock up custom jackets for you if you ask them. No guarantees of course. As far as styling goes, they're all pretty much classic american/british style. I'm ok with that, frankly, as it actually fits me. I'd bet more than a RO jacket is worth that even in the 46 fit, it still wouldn't fit, because it would be too slim in the shoulders/arms.

    Rambo, 'custom' doesn't mean they go and design a jacket to your wishes, you are referring to them being able to stick an inch or two in the pattern to make it longer (or shorter)

    ^aero will let you mix and match and frankenstein parts of other jackets or if you can be exact about WHAT you want they will do custom.

    that is probably a recipe for disaster, either way. I can tell you that wholeheartedly.

    Was wondering if anyone has experience or knowledge with dyeing leather jackets? Basically i found a cool jacket, at a very good price but its in white.
    considering grabbing it and dyeing it black...
    First how much of a struggle would this be to do myself? Im not sure if anyone in my area offers a dyeing service, but i know i can get the dye at least.
    and second would it mess up the leather by drying it out etc etc?

    if it's white, it might not be dyeable. You need to figure out what kind of leather you have on your hands.

    nah i mean what kind of finish it has on top of it. You can't make white leather usually unless you paint the color on there, leather comes darker than white normally. Most darker colored expensive jackets are tanned or dyed top grain leather, the rest are just genuine leather with a finish painted on the hide, it's a different kind of leather. You can only really dye the former.

    How are S2A leathers? I like the S2A x Justice collab and it might actually be available soon and I know it won't compare to the leather discussed here but is it decent enough for the price ~$1200?
