    I've only started scouring SF recently but I was fortunate enough to score this absolute steal c/o user JTA.

    Pics from classified:

    Japanese Department Store United Arrows (Beauty and Youth line) for Opening Ceremony LA 2008 when Japan was the featured country.
    Made in Japan with all lambskin and zip front and sleeves (YKK of course).


    In my opinion it's a perfect black varsity/moto hybrid. Understated to really focus on the beautiful leather and can be as preppy or gangsta as needed.

    Keep it as it is and don't think about the fur. :)

    yeah its a great piece. Wish I got the L, but XL isnt too much bigger.

    how is your jacket holding up? specifically, any issue with rain or snow?

    no it's fine but I dunno how the xl can fit you. I am 6'2 220 and the large is almost too big in the body. the only thing i hate is the ribbed inset in the arm. it's functional (rick does this in his women's leathers) but wind goes right through so it defeats the purpose of it being a warm shearling.

    If you have a pair of black boots and a pair of brown boots, would you buy a black leather jacket or a brown one?

    Yeah, def too big in the body but fits perfectly if I layer it with a sweater. The difference between L and XL:

    Shoulders: 1"
    Chest: .75"
    Waist: .75"

    Not a fan of the ribbed portion either and for a different reason-too loose. I prefer a slimmer sleeve

    Palma - i've seen Lot78 on Gilt at much cheaper price. whether or not they have that particular jacket/style, i don't know as I don't follow them. get on Gilt and I'm sure it will come up again as they seem to cycle through these brands ever so often now.
