    Zilli is so classy: [​IMG] I want to pair the jacket with my classy loafers by ultra-exclusive Artioli, and wear my gold Carrera sunglasses. [​IMG]

    Although on a serious note, Zilli does make some high quality garments. There is also Seraphin who also makes for Hermes, Jean-Claude Jitrois, and the now defunct Claude Montana.

    Brioni, Kiton and Loro Piana all make the best leather/suede jackets I've found. Zegna, Armani, Seraphin, Valentino, Malo, D&G, etc also do high quality leather jackets. For a good deal less money, Schott Bros, for instance, do nice leather jackets.

    I am all about that shirt in the Zilli display! .....

    I've heard that Seraphin is up there with the best as well, hence why I'm purchasing one. Hopefully I won't be disappointed. [​IMG]

    Their quality is unsurpassed as is their price tag. But, they do provide a replacement collar with every jacket, which is nice.[​IMG]

    I don't have much experience with different leather/suede jackets but I'm very happy with the one I have from Loro Piana. I think it's their Schooner model. Very soft and supple suede.

    I was going to say purple label , until I saw that coat. Incredible.

    I own one Kiton suede mainline and one Kiton K leather coat and neither was as nice as that bespoke one.

    The 2 purple label coats are nice but I like a more rigid leather.
