    I wouldn't say junhashimoto dominates Attachment hard in the quality department. Both are very nice leathers. However the one Attachment leather I own is not better quality than this particular junhashimoto one. Also realize that most of junhashimoto's leathers are priced at one of two levels: 147,000 or 173,000 yen. Mine is the higher priced one, so perhaps it's better than the others you may have seen.

    If you like badass CCP type stuff, then I'd imagine you'd fancy Attachment leathers more than jun. Many of the Attachment leathers are remarkarly similar in style to CCP. Personally I feel like I'm increasingly moving away from the whole dark lord / mad max look that these labels embody. So that's probably why I seem biased towards the jun stuff.

    To be fair, you can't expect dining room tables to promote wrinkles.

    i went on a sw&d spree over the last couple of weeks:

    +j parka
    uniqlo knits
    dior black jeans
    strike gold jeans
    coming soon linen-wool pants
    cp tournament high
    superga 2750
    couple nice scarves
    vans slip ons
    random tees


    Nice. I am a big Scandi design fan. Great blend of minimal form and natural materials. Goes well with the seafaring (or at least coastal) lifestyle.

    There's a lot of quality difference on Attachment leathers depending on what leather is being used. The best ones are the vegetable-tanned german calf ones that use the same leather that Backlash does and the Kazuyuki Kumagai ones that use Guidi leather. All the other Attachment leathers are very nice, but nothing super special.


    Been wanting this for awhile, Paul Harnden long jacket:

    Also some new Balance m1400s to replace my Margiela sneaks which are getting ratty

    Sleeping in the nude is grimy though, I'm trying to come up with up with a baller jet-ism about that but it's not coming to me right now.

    Actually been thinking about coming out with some TOJ pajamas.
