    JD - looks fantastic and fit is great. Any more details on the jacket?

    +1, details please
    It's Yigal Azrouel from the first FW season. The leather is really nice, and thick; it's a verrrry heavy jacket. It has wool knit cuffs and waistband as visible there, but also on the back of the arms. It's lined obviously, but it also has an button-in insulated vest thing as well for added warmth. The fleece thing on the collar is detachable. I like it fully zipped with the collar up like that. I'll get some extra pics posted later.

    That has to be one of the nicest buys I've seen on here in a while JD. Color is great, fit is near perfect, and I like the styling. (usually picky on leathers) Also, just for the hell of it: [​IMG]

    JD, given the awesome fit of that jacket, I never would have guessed that it had such thick lining. Great find.

    Well, it somehow manages to look relatively low-volume, but I can definitely tell when I'm wearing it because it does have that feeling of wearing a leather breastplate.

    More than willing to make that sacrifice to keep warm. If I can find a decent balaclava I'll be set.

    the blackscissors jacket has arrived. my only gripe is that is perhaps a teeny bit too long but then again i am a skinny/small guy.. so. pretty impressed, leather is great quality. it is relatively warm as well.. especially with the very thick cuffs at the sleeves and bottom of jacket. the red is very flashy. tell me what you guys think..

    It's really hard to judge the fit on that from that picture, get someone to take a pic of you outside from a reasonable distance in good light. The spot you're pointing to makes it look like it's bulging there but it could just be you leaning over the counter.

    Well I'd say the leather is pretty nice. It is very "potent" lol. What I should have said is good for the money, you have to see/feel it in person. Their photos are deceiving.
    The bulge is probably from my wallet/cell-phone being in that pocket. I was pointing/holding the flap up to show the red.. there is a pocket under the jacket there that could be 'creating a buldge.' Ps never said bulge so many times in a post and have it not be dirty.
    To be fair I am a fairly skinny guy, 5'8 125 lbs. The jacket is an XS. And it was taken on a cell phone. Will take better pix later on

    what style did you buy?? Was thinking about possibly shortening the length of mine but I kind of like that it could even be a medium winter jacket with a hoody under it.. dont want it too fitted.

    Anyone interested in buying my Schott 740N leather navy pea jacket? I think it is a little big on me. Size 38. [​IMG]
