    fashion comes full circle. The "really bad" looks an awful like the "really good". That really ugly jacket up there with the veins looks alot like the other really ugly veiny CCP jacket that people here masturbate over.

    I've been drooling over it for years. One day, things won't keep on getting in the way of my getting one.

    You wouldn't be wrong. MA+ is really stone age workmanship - it's on purpose and part of the appeal, but still, a $2K+ statement about modern construction methods is a bit much for most people, especially when you have to wear that statement. While the visual of clothing disintegrating as someone walks across the desert is cool, it could be a bit much when really, you are just commuting across SF to your tech job.

    Right having a 2k+ jacket falling apart on me won't lead to happiness

    Also idk if I'll want to commute to work in an ma+ with a backpack on, that will look odd. I've been leaning to non leather jackets for that.

    Looks like a fleece that mountain hard wear or north face would have.

    It's not terrible, it's just not particularly interesting in any way. Frankly, for a very simple jacket like that, You might consider contacting @luxire (or are you guys using @LuxireStudio .) We created a moto shape that is not too unlike that, and you could easily get a jacket like that using the MTM system they have, and to your specifications (http://www.styleforum.net/t/518949/luxire-and-styleforum-leather-jackets-official-thread). Otherwise, Schott makes a very similar jacket (https://www.schottnyc.com/products/cowhide-casual-racer-leather-jacket.htm?catID=5) that is frankly, both less expensive and less generic

    Get the viridi-anne horsehide jacket if you can find it in your size.

    Oh yeah, that.

    Nice. I found that it fit snug on the arms and shoulders and chest, but was a bit loose in the waist. ymmv.

    I'll throw out there that Collateral Concepts is selling down the last of its (his) stock, and he's got a handful of jackets left very much in that style. Horsehide, $600 or $700.

    From what I know about those jackets, probably a very good deal. He has posted here also. Does anyone remember his username here?

    1) You are way better at photoshop than me.
    2) Your talents were wasted. Go to design school right now.
