    Jackets 2 and 3. The other ones were too over zippered for me

    Liked this anne

    The leather itself seems really frail though. Design is cool.

    Thanks again so much people for the feedback and great help.

    I decided to keep only the Rick as much as I LOVE the 5 zip, I am really more of a muted person.

    I also think I may have pushed my return policy with yoox due to my damned indecisiveness, so if anyone is interested in the mmm do tell, but shipping costs maybe pricey as it's heavy as fk due to the leather....unless you live in Australia just come to mine to pickup!.

    I also noticed everyone has just gone nuts on buying the jacket from yoox, only 1 size of 48, and 50 left lol.

    I have the size 46 as well if your were wondering
    (I may not post up a FS classified as I am just saving it first to pms on those who are interested already)

    Seems like the non-black or or brown color makes it easier to avoid the wall of leather. Don't like how visible the puffy down lining is though.

    What's with the cut at the back though? Looks like it got bunched up when it was washed or something. Seems a bit much to overlook on a $4700 jacket..

    So I bought a red 5 zip from Yoox and some Saphir black dye solution.

    First I scoured the surface with a leather-only cleaner (which gave me terrible headaches).

    The first coat of dye resulted in a awful uneven purple color. I was like "oh man, what have i done".
    But after the second coating, the color was more of a dark brown with burgundy hues. I liked the result and decided to keep it that way. A third coating would have resulted in a plain black color, but I dont wear much black.

    Then I applied Saphir leather care cream with a horsehair brush for a nice finish. Pretty happy with the final result. :)

    (excuse the terrible pics, my camera sucks)

    During the dyeing and glazing part I could see the hide drinking the products. That thing was craving for a treatment !
