    Is horse everyone's leather of choice? Does anyone prefer any other kind of leather, like lamb or oiled calf? Or maybe more exotic leathers?

    The Helmut Lang jeans? It's on pre-order at Barneys.com.

    It's like the waxed and cheaper alternative to Ricks ribbed jeans from last season.

    depends what you want, armour-like leather that molds to your shape with use, a bit more supple leather thats still pretty thick and rugged, or smooth as butter leather that probably wont hold up to much abuse

    Does anyone know where I could locate the Rick FW 13 blistered lamb intarsia? Can only find it online at Hostem and The Corner Berlin, neither of which will be discounting it.

    It depends. They are both quite thick per se but I have handled horse leather jackets that are quite soft. As an example, Zam has produced a soft horse leather jacket. If you are looking for a stiff, armor-like leather, both horse and calf should do.

    It's tagged black but definitely has a some brown in it. Whichever it is, I really like the leather. Deciding if it's too sausage wrapped on me.
