    Those layer-0 leathers all look really overdesigned... haven't seen a single one I like, leather looks nice, though..

    Re: CCP and it's replica

    IMO the original is incredible while the fake is mediocre. Can't really understand all the affection with regard to the fake in here.

    A bit off topic, but are japanese brands (i.e. attachment, v-a, devoa) cheaper in japan? Have my eye on the washi hood jacket and an attachment leather.

    I'd say the answer is generally yes, they're cheaper in Japan. Every store I've seen that carries those brands outside Japan has a pretty big markup on them over Japanese retail. Best bet if you know exactly what you want is to proxy from Japan or find it on Rakuten / Yahoo Japan.

    However there are sometimes stores outside Japan that have good sales which brings prices down below Japanese retail. I bought an Attachment leather from Project 3,14 in Russia for ~30% off Japanese retail (which was like 70% off their retail). I've also bought Attachment on sale from autographmenswear.com in the UK and V-A on sale from rarehouse-online.com in HK. Generally it seems the sales need to get to 50%+ off for the prices to be moderately cheaper than retail in Japan.
