    Struggling to find a picture that's full length, and this might have been posted before, but the leather coat in Sympathy for Lady Vengence rocks.

    reason could be that Guidi leather is so thick and uncomfortable, you must size up otherwise you can't even layer a LS


    I owned the very first season model of the most basic model - the front zip blouson. It was looking really nice but again so uncomfortable....and they always make the sleeves stupidly so long.....

    The shoulders on that look very strange.

    Does anyone have experience with MMM 5 zips? I love my Rick but have been tempted to purchase a 5 zip as a second leather. Anyone know how they compare with older Rick in terms of quality and durability? Thanks!

    How do studs fare? I've really only seen them on really "punk-ed out" jackets, but I briefly saw one on the street that caught my eye, and it looked like it was done tastefully. What are your thoughts? Has anybody seen a good, minimally studded leather jacket?

    I own it now - works for me, but I have long arms. I have a double zip Incarnation that is a bit stiffer and more edgy in a weathered brown finish that I like too... Gotta post fit pics one of these days.

    This Valentino is about the best I've seen: http://www.mrporter.com/product/313624

    The important thing in a subtle application is to have the studs function as a texture rather than ornament (eg: the Valentino's are leather coated).

    not sure if here is the right place to ask this question, but its related to leather jackets..

    Anyway, I bought a leather "Lad Musician" jacket made of calf leather last year, i only brought it out once for a holiday trip shortly after buying it.
    I dont wear it often, only when occasion calls as i live in a perpetually summer country.

    Ever since then it been hanging around in my wardrobe, do i need to take it out to condition it with leather products?
    I happen to have Saphir Renovateur and Obenauf oil. So... should i use them on it? which?
