    The bison grain on the high neck looks really cool in photos

    I agree for the fencing or scarstitch horse probably more suited if its smooth

    Was thinking about getting a high neck in one of the lighter colours (eg 33) in kangaroo. Dont really need a heavy jacket in my climate

    Will have to keep looking

    Yeah, extremely nice. As good if not better than most jackets discussed in this thread. The current season leathers are quite substantial the jackets are well-constructed. Like Rick with better quality control. If the simple designs work for you, I'd say you couldn't do better in that style for the price

    This is personally the best high neck I've ever seen. But don't think it'd look nearly as sick with grain. Ah and it's horse.

    Those CCP jackets look so sick, but do y'all enjoy wearing them? They're the one of the most heavy, cumbersome, and imposing clothing items I've ever tried on. I couldn't imagine wearing CCP around all day

    Yeah actually I do a lot. That said 2 of them fit me really well.. if they didn't fit as well I could see how it'd be insanely uncomfortable since it is very thick/stiff (The last is the grey/green SS07 overlock in calf leather... but I keep it around for collecting's sake). Then again.. take my opinion with a large grain of salt. I hunt after super dense/thick/stiff fabrics in my pieces. That's why I love the a1923 wool/ramie pieces from this season... and why I loved the cotton blazer from last season but sadly it's starting to soften up with wear :( I find myself reaching for it way less after that :/

    Lamb has more room in the body but smaller arms. Calf has larger shoulders and arms but a more aggressive taper. I think the lamb drapes much more softly on the body but the 5 zip is known for it's boxy fit so the fw13 does a better job at that. It's all personal preference they are both very nice. I think the ss14 is also not made in Italy because the neck tag would state so normally but they may have moved it.

    Speaking from experience: Yes!

    When I got my high-neck (CORS) it was stiff and restrictive. It was also too tight for me as I sized down by one (100% intentional). But after about 4-5 wears, it has changed a lot. It has stretched one full size and has softened in the sleeves and body. And now it feels awesome! Quite comfortable; after a year of wearing it, it will be that much better. And I am wearing it today!

    The shininess of the leather also changed to a much more matte finish, which I prefer.

    Here are some more pics of the light colored high neck:

    I looked through a lot of the older posts in this thread a while ago (bored), and the ccp high neck really did stand out as probably my favorite piece. I wish I could handle it in person to feel the materials and experience the armor-like quality of the jacket. Maybe there will be a trip to Europe or Asia sometime in the future.

    I have the high neck in 3 different leathers, kangaroo, bison and horse(cors)...

    The cors one at first is very stiff but softens up quite quickly but always remains quite rigid. Bison is always soft and very thick, has some grain visible. Kangaroo is like paper, thin and crispy.

    Selling the bison one atm.

    I'm really not a fan of this jacket. Sort of a mock turtleneck collar, giant pockets that give off a hip flare, and just mostly a wall of dull, putty colored leather (that looks cheap at least in the pic). Bleagh

    I want that jacket a million. Sorry Reedo, your inability to successfully wear that incredibly awesome Plokhov high-neck leather disqualifies you from having an opinion on anything.

    I wouldn't be forced into this tough love if you would have just grabbed your balls like a fistful of dollars and carried on in the first place! What happened to dying a legend?!

    Some have dollars, some have pennies -- as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be.

    And in Canada, we have $2 coins. :teach:

    This post is in no way to be construed as a comment on reedo

    That Plokhov jacket was so cool reedo, part of me still wishes I had bought it from you, but my skinny fat 5'8" frame would have probably not been a good match
