    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    When being worn fully zipped I kinda like minimalist DR with no buttons snaps, pockets and stuff, however it looks out of control when worn totally unzipped.
    perhaps both front panels need to be really thin, or with all their edges raw, or unlined, so they could drape, rest better, I dunno what I'm talking...

    Margiela calfskin, one year in. Finally starting to break in a bit - quite happy with how it's turning out, I've seen a couple where the leather just kind of turned into a crinkly mess

    I agree. They are lopsided by design, I'm not sure there is anyway to make them drape properly unless zipped up.

    The leather looks really good, and the zips don't jump out at me as much as they usually do.

    i think the construction process is cool, but can't say i find the end result aesthetically pleasing

    I don't really get the seam work. It's clearly not for function like what Devoa does, nor does it look good imo. Reminds me of what Reo Ma did, but not as good.

    It's so that the piece is constructed with one uninterrupted piece of material, I think.

    I don't believe so, you need multiple hides to make a jacket. The HH used for jackets is typically only from the front portion of the hide. It's interesting from an artistic stand point, certainly a lot of work has to go into the pattern and construction.

    The seams are more fashion than function.

    It's not one piece. On the inside you can see the hand written markings/numbers on the individual pieces.

    Not sure now, but all the pieces I handled were unlined.

    Edit: this is what it starts out as:

    look at jacket and whatever feeling you get put up emoticon, but one definition of "uhoh" is an " expression of dismay" so thats what i meant

    got a 5 zip recently but sleeves are pretty pretty wide for my arms. Is it possible to slim it down? If so, anyone know any places in nyc? I usually go to the tailoring room in LES for regular alterations but im not sure how experienced they are with leather
