    Does SWORD make quality jackets? I rarely see them mentioned here but some of their leathers look decent from pics but always been sketchy on quality.

    curious about this as well, the jackets are made in italy, which is promising

    Nah, those are nice, I like the black version too. However, ToJ is a cheaper alternative w/o sacrificing quality so most will probably go with that and ToJ will probably fit much better too.

    So you think the ToJ will fit better than the Schott/Barney's?

    Yes because they actually ask for your measurements and make adjustments to fit you.

    I had a girl who had one, it was really thin. Not sure if it was a summer version or what but the leather on the toj kills it.

    +1

    I now worship at the alter of Jawnz myself.

    Seriously though, their quality/cost ratio is insane. Drew says they won't do full custom anymore, but they have a ton of sizes, and you can customize lengths however you want.

    Yeah they don't do full custom but I believe they still change sizing for fit purposes, like make slimmer torso or as you said, lengthening or shortening of the jacket and/or sleeves. No design or aesthetic changes from what I understand.

    I just bought the worlds coolest/cheapest jacket.
    Black Rivet at Nordstroms during anniversary sale, it was $60.

    So yeah, it's faux leather but who gives a shit? I get compliments on it all the time.
    I wear it when I don't want to wear my expensive leather but still want something casual and cool.

    Only problem is, doesn't breathe that well. My arms get hot wearing it if I'm in a warm environment.

    Sorry I couldn't find a pic SANS model.

    Ohhh, I see, a bunch of assholes we have here... Cool.. I enjoy being an asshole too.

    1) How can I think it looks cool? Lets see, have worn it on the red carpet and was stopped and asked "Where did I get it?"

    2) Wore it to the Macy's special gifting suite and runway show in Downtown LA and was stopped a number of times by people who said, "cool jacket" and "Where did you get that"...

    But besides all that, you fucktards with your obnoxious responses, I'll go toe to toe with any of you anytime you're ready.. Style vs. Style.. Watches? Cars? Homes?
    Pics of you? Pics of your life?
