    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    This is actually my holy grail MA+, in horse.

    The guy told me for some reason MA+ won't be making as many in horse going forward, not sure why. Or if it's true.

    Fwoedit - nice purchases man! But why both in black though? Incarnation has good offerings in different colors. Not that there's anything wrong with black. That MA+ horse leather moto jacket pops up in classifieds from time to time. Check sf, sz, grailed dot
    com and ebay. You might also want to contact member skeen who bought that moto jacket in midnight blue for $1500 and was ready to part with it (it was 50 or 52 to fit true 48).

    ^jacket has a new home already.
    You would have looked awesome in it though, you have the right build for MA+ your jacket looks great congrats

    I wish the reverse horse fit me better, it was a really good colour/texture but im too chunky for it

    Seal is the name of the color, commonly used for brown leather.

    @Jbravo Thanks! These are my first high-quality leather jackets ever, so I figured I would go versatile. : ) The Incarnation is actually more of a grey / brown black, hard to describe, but mostly black, ha.

    Next I might like to go to a color, but not sure yet what would work with me. Thank for the Grailed dot com tip, I'll definitely bookmark that!

    $1,500 would have been super-sweet!

    Thanks @skeen7908

    Yes, fit can be a challenge. I'm tending to gain a little weight in my stomach, and some of these amazing jackets are so fitted, if I'm not careful the stomach "pops out" (meaning, cough, "accurately conform to my body"), so it's probably good motivation for me to find some decent stomach exercises, if any truly exist. Or cut out sugar in my coffee.

    Now if I can just get the bravery to actually wear that MA+ every day. It cost so much, my tendency is always to "fashion hoard," as my girlfriend teases me.

    Visited medium rare here in HK, nice store. Picked up an incarnation. Probably my nicest leather jacket now.

    hey @nicelynice do you do any conditioning/oiling of your stooges? it looks great after all these years! I've noticed some fading (black to navy/green) near some creases on my hammered lamb. Wondering if that's unavoidable or if I should do something about it

    The greenish fading is unavoidable due to the dying method used on the jackets (my lambskin Julius jackets also had a similar issue) - mine has some around the cuffs and zipper contact areas, but it's barely noticeable when I wear it. I use Saphir delicate leather cream once or twice a year in spots that feel a bit ashy and it restores the color and cleans up the dryness quite well

    Guys how have you sized MA+ ? Campbell is telling me to tts but he always wants me to buy tops that are too small and pants that are too big.

    I have only tried on MA+ gear once, but I am your size and size 54 tops felt borderline. TTS would have been madness. @unbelragazzo has that sick petrol aviator in a 54 (I think), you could ask how it's stretched/aged.
