    It's sad because David Guetta was kind of talented before he decided to make shit music to enrich himself.

    I currently own a Tommy Hilfiger brown leather motorcycle jacket. The leather is pretty soft and supple, which is not bad for a $200 jacket. The leather seems to be of good quality.

    I just ordered a new bottle of Obenauf's Leather Oil to rework some of my leather goods and I'm curious as to how the jacket is going to take to it. My only complaint thus far is that the snap fasteners aren't as sturdy as I'd like. I'm constantly rebuttoning my sleeves and I have to rebutton my epaulet whenever I take off my backpack, messenger bag, or gig bag. One day I'll take it to the leather tailor to replace everything with YKK equivalents.

    I used to own a Nate's Leather Chicago Police Dept. jacket that I had beaten all to hell. Great heavyweight leather that stood up to anything. Unfortunately, I needed some money and some creepy guy with a fetish for beat up leather offered to buy it from me for a grand and I sold it. Far more than the jacket costs new, but I still regret it. I plan on owning another one day.

    Wow that's quite a bargain for Incarnation. Curious to hear what you think of the leather. All the Incarnation jackets I've handled have been really stiff and seem like they would need some serious breaking in.

    $4k for a jacket is fucking retarded. I hope it gives blowjobs and makes sandwiches

    Every time I hear what people spend on leather jackets elsewhere, it encourages me to buy more TOJ

    yes they are, mine was quite tight at firts and it never stretched enough so I sadly had to sell it...the sleeves were super tight and I have very slim arms

    Mine took a couple weeks of wear to break in. The leather quality on incarnation jackets is definitely a step above most other brands I've handled.

    I picked up the fw12 rover in (i think) washed lamb, which is one of the cheaper jackets. The one with the quilted lining, not the one with the dumb stripes that mr porter had... the leather seems pretty thick for lamb. It'll hold up fine? Leather seems to crease really easily but the cut is nice.
