    To continue on that topic there are many nice Visvim pieces (I have a friend who likes what they do and he has nice stuff), the problem is that it sorta degenerated into total pointless $$$ wanksterism for geeks and the design aspects didn't follow, quite the contrary. The guy was better doing some macintosh collabs or whatever, those looked really good. Oh and most of the boots are so ugly it hurts my feelings just thinking they exist.

    Thanks for the pic, those aren't similar enough IMO. I don't like the non-leather fabric on the sleeves.

    Anyone know what the identical jacket I linked above is? Can't be that hard to find it, can it?

    How much do you think it'll shrink? I'd need to lose at least two inches (circumference) for it to really fit. Might give it a shot, it's not like I dropped a fortune on the jacket.

    ...do you guys really think leather can be soaked and shrunken like a loosely woven cotton cloth such as denim?

    when you take a shower does your skin shrink two inches in circumference?

    Less than half an inch in the chest circumference due to shrinkage.

    its actually .2"

    Let's get this straight, you can't just divide cm's by 2 and get inches. It's 2.54cm=1in
    I was selling some Junya jeans one time and I had all the measurements in cm. The leg opening was like 19.5cms and I cant tell you how many idiots PMd me asking how these slim jeans could have a 9" leg opening...
