    That's his medium whiskey DR. For some reason my medium whiskey looks a little lighter but I guess that is the lighting in the club. Yours will look darker. Honestly, it would look awesome in almost any style.

    Edit: On second look, wow that flash makes it pretty hard to tell. Here's another picture I found. Dark whiskey will look like this or a little darker in regular light, I would say.

    Yea it's his whiskey but i think there's some sort of filter on the photo making it look darker, like what I estimate the dark to actually look like

    Just me, I think most styles work with it. Except any of the bombers. I would like my bombers to be in the classic brown lamb. :)

    As much as I like my brown lamb CM, would trade it in a heartbeat for one in DW.

    Ya, size small (murdered out black). I got it at 50% off, would sell it for $350 shipped to Europe, $360 shipped to America (would prolly still lose a little money on it)

    I gather this forum is not much into hooded leather jackets but I picked up one recently that I thought was pretty good, so here are some pics. It's from a japanese brand called Gene par Yukio Mishiba. It's made from deerskin, and is very soft. It has some distressing which looks a lot more extreme in the pics - the actual jacket looks much darker in real life so the distressing comes off a bit more subtle (see last two pics).

    Stock pics:

    And one pic of my own, showing it zipped all the way up. I think the silhouette when zipped is kinda cool.. collar is edgier than a standard jacket IMO but not as crazy as those jut-neck designs..

    Gotten several compliments already on this jacket. And it was a (relative) bargain.. got it from the247.it for 362 euros + 50 euros shiping (ouch) = ~US$550. Their list price was 1207 euros. The construction quality seems pretty high, although it is made in Korea and the lining is poly, not cupro or silk.
