    I can endorse the reasoning behind moldable collars. Gravity is a rather pedestrian thing for style to be subject to. The problem is that the current implementation is complete rubbish, besides which the wire is invariably the first thing to fail in any jacket. Until there's some sort of utilitarian Arc'teryx Veilance reinterpretation of either the metal or the construction, I wish people would stop buying them.


    I'm kind of the opposite. I liked Julius well before it dribbled out of Japan into general western awareness, and despite trends starting to move away from it ~5 years ago (more domestically than globally, though that too now) they've always been one of my favorites, right up there with Collateral Concepts and Devoa.

    I mean, a lot of it is fanservice of the worst sort. Most of the bottoms, fully half the gothninja, and practically all of the military is unwearable for me. But what it pulls off, it pulls off well. They still have the best cut&sewn basics of any brand I've tried short of one or two in terms of construction and anatomic fit. And for leathers while the hide quality and treatment may be eclipsed now and then (though they're nothing so shitty as RO, which marks up exclusively off of "vision" or whatever), the stitching is almost without peer.

    Apropos of which, I suppose I haven't posted any Julius porn in a while so here's a terrible phone pic. This came in today. Actually a replacement for a stolen jacket in the same style rather than a new purchase. AW 11, lambskin, brownish charcoal tagged gray for reasons passing understanding. Needs to go to a tailor though; it's a bit loose on me.

    Sorry if this is off topic but does anyone know any good oils/moisturizers that are good to use on lamb leather jackets?

    I agree with your assessment of the brand, I really hate all the overly waxed jackets and pants, and other gimmicky bullshit like the giant ass leather belts, gloves, and etc. I just bought a double layer rayon t from this season for $128 dollars....if I got the equivalent from rick it would have been $500 and I would've had holes in a month.

    military is terrible, dont even wanna address the drop crotch cargo pants shizz

    some of the jeans are overly done - agreed

    I wish they did more pants in heavier fabric instead of just cotton/nylon mixes, and some cupro. Would end up just buying everything from them, think its why I am gravitating towards devoa bottoms.

    leathers were great from fall, ss11 was kinda overdone with the treatment, and I didnt like the length and collars especially. They do make stellar stuff though, I havent felt a cheap one yet. With rick unfortunately the hammered lamb, and lamb in general sometimes is incredibly cheap and you feel robbed lol. Its why I only own oiled calf and blistered lamb right now.

    I like this blue leather because of the design and the buttons + zipper. Wire collar is a dumb addition, but I love the color as it embraces the zen side nicely, while still being an aggressive piece since its in leather.

    Fit pic of the blue/grey Julius leather, I think it's wearable and the wire thing people are arguing about doesn't seem like it'll be much of a problem.
