    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I bought this leather from a euro e-store and returned it - it's a very thin leather (lamb I believe) with a rubberized coating that gives it the matte look. Doesn't have the leather feel or creasing, but the matte look and cut is nice. Just not $1k+ nice..

    Haha maybe man, just not very fond of taking cell phone mirror shots

    Not sure that it will fit either of you, it's a size 48 (fits a half-size small). Besides, that one is probably my favourite of the lot - it'll probably be the last to go [​IMG] (highly recommended if you guys ever come across it)

    spacepope: Check Rakuten or y!jp, I actually saw the same horse rider in Size 50 in a used clothing shop (Kind-U) in Tokyo a couple of weeks ago. I think it was somewhere in the ballpark of 130,000 yen which is a pretty reasonable price considering retail is something like $4,000. They might still have it listed online :)

    Is the TOJ black as well? I've decided I need to not buy anything else until I save up for either a 5 zip or intarsia

    ^ It's graphite calfskin from the batch of Italian leather that they had at one point. It's a pretty interesting colour; looks black under natural light, with purple/grey undertones under white lighting or brown undertones under yellow lighting.

    A word of advice: I owned an Intarsia in a slightly thinner lambskin and although the leather was really great, I didn't like the floppiness of the collar (it was hard to maintain its shape), so it's probably better to look for one in a thicker material. Also, size up - the size small I had was from FW10 (Gleam) and it was basically skin tight on me. I think recent season Rick fits even smaller

    Yeah, I saw that one, good price, but I really prefer the paneling and details of the Intarsia

    Goddamn chaos, I knew you had some nice outerwear but no idea your leather collection was so impressive...But hey, you know who's first in line if you ever decide to downsize on that 5-zip :embar:

    I wish that Plokhov leather that used to own would work on me reedo, too bad I think it would be too long, and too tight on my torso :(

    My main problem with that thing was the leather was too thin and flexible and nothing would shape right (esp the collar), and those sleeves were cut almost bell-bottomish

    Haha, chaos, looks like your collection grew from since we met and you tried on my TOJ calf jacket.
