    Hi all. Posting for the first time on this forum. Very interesting thread - been reading/watching it for a while. So many truly incredible jackets - inspired me to get myself a new one and today I bought it - calf high collar Incarnation http://www.project314.com/shop/mens/outwear/leather_jacket_13.html
    It was a good bargain I believe - approx. 1000 US dollars. Look forward to hearing what you think of it. Cheers.

    I've got it already (not an online purchase but directly from the shop). I will take pictures and post later on.

    Ok, time for some major thanks to Brad-t.

    I've been wanting this KK Attachment jacket in brown for a long time, but it seemed completely sold out. When I asked about it in the Attachment thread months ago brad-t spotted one at a Russian store called Project 3,14 but the price was way too high for me (>$3k). Then a month or so ago I happened to check the store again and it's on sale, in my size no less.

    After receiving it today I would say it's now my favorite jacket. The leather they use (from Guidi) feels amazing.. super soft yet substantial, with a nice grain you can feel. I think it fits great, and I love the minimalist style.

    [​IMG]

    Here are some detail shots of the leather. The seams on this thing are incredible.. instead of a traditional seam with a folded edge inside for the stitching, the leather is just matched edge-to-edge and sewn using a series of very tight loops. It makes for a completely flat seam - no edge whatsoever. I'm guessing this is not nearly as strong as a traditional seam though. It feels solid when you tug on it, but I wouldn't go much further. Riri zips are great and the sleeves get a nice silhouette when the cuff zips are open.

    THANK YOU brad-t :) :)

    It's unlined except for the sleeves which have a very thin lining of cupro so you can slide your arm in and out easily.

    I was browsing through Yoox, and I came across a few leather jackets that potentially look interesting - wanted to post here and get your thoughts about them.

    All 3 of these hover in the mid $400 range.


    These first two come from a Yoox no-name brand called Vintage De Luxe (haha).

    And this one is from another brand I can't find any info on called Jey Cole Man

    I am looking at getting a decent, but moderately priced leather to start things off. Currently TOJ doesn't have any of the styles that I like - extremely minimal/sleek in the vein of Attachment, Incarnation, Devoa (however I just don't have baller income yet).

    A few pages back, Tellure modified a jacket from 10Sei0Otto which I think is really nice (and I found it online in my size!) :

    [​IMG]

    And Yoox also has this one from 10Sei0Otto:

    All things being equal, which would you guys head in the direction of?

    Really sorry for being pic-heavy and asking such a generic question - I just need some advice/help since this is a fairly large purchase for me. I really appreciate any help you'd be willing to offer.

    Return shipping is only $6 so it might be worth your while to just buy a few and return them if it doesn't work out.

    All the fit pics of 10sei0otto leather jackets I've seen look kinda boxy and doesn't seem to have a nice fitting cut.
    This one looks promising, looking forward to seeing how it looks worn.

    The first one looks fine but it would need a closer look to the leather quality.
