    I've had my eyes on that for a while, but for the money its just too expensive. For one uniform experiment / sophnet doesn't use the best leather, its generally pretty ho hum and they always use paint coated leathers not aniline which wears pretty poorly. I don't remember if that model is coated like the recent navy rider, but since its from aw11 and is still 30% off retail and visibly used, its not a good deal.

    over my head sorry :(

    Im assuming some of the fakes must be very good, since there are constantly is this authentic threads being made - they are good enough to at least be in doubt

    wouldn't be surprised if those tech runners were better quality than actual Rick

    probably that is about the correct price for a decently made stuff including a decent profit for the manufacture and the seller without big designer label behind it purposefully marked up price to limit their market segment [​IMG] to give false sense of extra quality and extra satisfaction from throwing much more money than others to have something other people can't have.

    Tech runners are ok quality (say a nice Adidas shoe so very good in a sense) which means they're probably leagues above the cheap stuff you see on those sites. I'd say it is probably something like fake Nikes versus real Nikes: make a lot of diff if you've ever seen the fakes...

    Nice. I only have on TOJ and that's a BCDR.

    edit: I see that the post I was replying to was deleted, so it doesn't make sense.

    locally, but in this case, it just happened they (this workshop who make my jacket) have these old goathides in stock, and actually shown to me as we talked about my decision as an example how inferior they are to soft sheep hide, also they said these goat is "unfinished" the surface was not painted that is why they fade just being left in storage, so I took the bad example instead[​IMG] they are happy to finally get rid some of their " unfinished" goat nobody else want, and I'm happy to get instant worn look of a naked goat.

    Any thoughts on this K Racer jacket by Belstaff? I think I like it, but I am unsure about the padding on the shoulders...
