    Allsaints sizing is all over the place, I know that there are people working there trying to fix that, but for the moment, you really need to try the jackets on before you buy them.

    Nothing is out-of-bounds on SF now. Why should anyone think otherwise?

    @einstine

    You said you wanted to see me most more and share my knowledge?
    Thank you for your invitation and will start by giving you a word of advice to you.......
    The forum would be more civil and you would aid it in the progression of meaningful dialogue if you would tone done on the snide and childish remarks and stop trying to bait forum members into disrespectful dialogue

    if people ignore your baits it may be simply a desire to take the high road rather than enter into uncivilized conduct which is a waste of time and does nothing for the upliftment of the human spirit or the progression of civil and edifying discourse

    Zam, did you see the post he was responding to? a frankly bizarre critique of his body type (which by the way, given he has broad shoulders and a slender frame seems very well suited to leathers and indeed most things).
    leaving that aside, i'd like to second the call for you to post more. i hadn't really been aware of your leathers but the models i've seen here recently look incredible. would be amazing to hear more about your working methods.

    thanks

    I am not in agreement with the critique of anyone's body type. I am a designer with scarred face, crooked teeth and a beer belly. however I really dont give a damn and could care less. I am more interested in peoples character and personalities that how the actually look. even though for me aesthetic does matter.
    I think @einstine causes these kind of things on himself by the irresponsible comments he often makes. I personally dont see anything wrong with his body as he seems perfectly fine to me...........short arms aside I think he has a nice slim frame which would wear most clothing really well. I think all of this came from his irresponsible critique of how much he thought so and so designers work was superior to mine ( which he may be right) without having any knowledge of what my work/ brand is about before making comparisons.........yet in a few hours after saying that he posted the fit that was shown with this ridiculous tee and white jean that didn't fit well. Effectively he undermined his credibility because the WAYWT fit was a complete opposite of the designer clothing connoisseur he was projecting himself to be. I made a peace offering to him after his comments about the leather jacket (of which in all fairness to him i may have misunderstood). he seemed to have accepted my extension of peace but his next post was to call me a person full of hate.......

    Now he is calling @gettoasty lonely enraged and ignorant. sometimes taking the high road or ignoring a comment does a lot to diffuse a situation than trying to respond to every perceived slight. it does nothing for building relations nor does it enhance ones spirit


    I will definitely try to post more, my work seems to be appreciated by a lot of people here. To all of them I want to say a kind thank you..............I cannot guarantee how much I will contribute but will chime in whenever and wherever I can as i do have a lot i can share and really enjoy healthy conversations about things i am passionate about. I am always overworked and stressed with so much to do and often while I like the forums immersing one's self in them can be counterproductive to getting actual work done but I will try to discipline myself so i dont feel like I am losing out...........

    @Zamb , how could you not care about your personal appearance? thats kind of disappointing, especially for a designer. Regarding your comment towards my arms, they appear short because I am wearing a top with 3/4 sleeves and raglan shoulders. It actually make me not want to wear it sometimes for that reason, but I enjoy the quality of the top and unusual design.
    Also as I stated @gettoasty consistently posts arrogant comments and posts them first, I emphasize the word first. He never states his opinion after someone responds to his dense comment and I know for someone that could be so ignorant its not because he does not want to start a feud. Possibly because his juvenile mind can not think of anything besides something harsh to say, and can not face the fact his comment was unnecessary and should of never been written and posted in the first place.

    because you can't simply wash the cotton like a regular tshirt, all that sweat absorbed over time makes it look bad, and probably begins rotting. Why wouldn't you want a lining that was more luxurious and whisked away sweat? pretty much the majority of leathers out there don't use a cotton lining. I don't know what you're getting mad for either, at least that's how your last sentence comes off as. In terms of material used, it is over rated. For that cost of the jacket, I expect better standards of materials used. It doesn't have to have a chain on the neck area, it doesn't have to have brand embroidered zippers, but at least step it up with basic lining. I did say I like the jacket to begin with, the aesthetics are nice, should it get the amount of praise it gets here? compared to a TOJ jacket? maybe aesthetically, but certainly not for quality. I'll stop talking about this now.

    Why not? People have different preferences. There doesn't have to be a single item that all has to agree as a "grail".

    So if you don't like a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette split-window because the interior leather is crap means it cannot be MY GRAIL?

    You're right. I was wrong on that part, and I'll edit it out.

    5 zip is nice but just needs the proper physique and leather choice to be worth it.

    I'm currently on the hunt for another leather jacket, I have a julius moto that I really enjoy and a couple others from m0851 in canada which mostly take a back seat in the closet to the julius, I like motos and bombers, the highneck/cowlneck or double rider does not look good on me.

    I'll be in france next spring is ccp cheaper over there? any other horse leather that would be worth looking for in france?

    To get back on topic, has anyone handled rick suede jackets this season? Substantial? Thin and floppy?

    They wanted to copy the high-end leather sizing inconsistency along with the designs.

    (jk, I think the leathers have really improved over the last couple years)

    I've said it before, but i will say it again, I feel like the fits look awkward on kunk. Also, the latest stuff has been really unforgiving of 50cm shoulders

    Didn't the TOJ thread have a giant argument about zippers a while back? I feel like the past few pages have been like that

    The suede stooges I tried on was the thickest leather I've ever seen Rick use.. Definitely quite substantial, but I saw another suede jacket (not the Intarsia, the other one with the similar mid-neck) that was thin and floppy.

    true, allsaints leather is a bit odd

    i got the shard leather jacket and it fit snug, while cargo leather biker jacket is a little bit losses.

    So come to the store and check it out. The leather boots they have really nice too, if you like it go for it.
    Don't always listen to what other say.

    I didn't like the rick suedes I saw this fall -- they were thin and floppy. I am generally okay with thinner leathers if they are like glove leather, but these didn't do anything for me. Then again they were at nordstroms so probably not representative of the whole line.
