these jackets are trying way too hard and failing miserably
Incarnation leather arrived, excuse the stupid faces
Very similar in both quality and materials to the Attachment jacket I own - if I had been told they were sourced from the same factory, I wouldn't be surprised, other than a couple different stitching techniques on the Incarnation piece. The dying process (both are dyed after the garment is finished) and the hand of the leather feel almost exactly the same.
Got quite lucky because I bought it online knowing only it was a size 'm' and Incarnation sizing is all over the place, but with a little bit of stretch I think it'll fit perfectly. Some of the Incarnation models have quite a short body, but this hits just above my belt, like a good leather jacket should.
I like the design quite a bit, cross between a DR and a fencing. The asymmetrical zip left open looks a bit strange in pictures, but looks nice with a bit of movement. Simple design which leaves the leather quality the standout of the piece, rather than crowding it with a lot of zips and buckles like some Incarnation designs. The silver metal hardware looks really nice except for the awful Incarnation zipper pulls, which look kind of hokey.
Lighting is off, it's more gray than brown
Looks good. Let me know when you're sick of it; I'll be here to buy.
Generally speaking I don't like asymmetrical zippers but that Incarnation looks great. It has this little twist without being too gimmickly.
that looks great on you nn. what a steal
that looks really good Nicely! a bargain kop if you ask me.
jacket looks good, how long is it?
also where did you find it for such a good price?
Yahoo Japan Auctions
Amazing deal, looks great. When you say the leather is similar to your Attachment, what does it feel like?
It's a medium thickness calf leather, initially stiff but does get a bit softer over time on places where it's bending. Both have varying portions of grain and smooth leather, with no effort done to match them up. Both feel slightly dry, which I believe is a side-effect of the dying process, which is done after the garment is finished, leaving a slightly uneven dye across the jacket. If you're into rugged, distressed calf biker-style jacket, you couldn't go wrong with an Incarnation, Backlash, or some of the Attachment jackets - all very similar quality.
Here's a picture of the Attachment jacket in question;
Shouldn't Goodwear leather be able to do a bespoke jacket? Lots of variety in leather too.
anyone identify this jacket?
possibly a RO
I suspect its this julius
RO would have been my guess too sinnedk.
Thanks lane, if that's not the jacket then its really close and something to keep an eye out for
