    Filson zipper tote in khaki. Perfect for carrying bottles, clothes, groceries or what ever.

    Ken's stuff is always awesome. The details and workmanship are of a caliber much higher than the pricepoint. His bags, especially, are particularly on point. They are reinforced so that they really, really, function. I had that choice between a leather bag from him, and a few from Margiela, one vintage Dries van Noten, and the choice was clearly:

    Krane > Dries van Noten > Margiela, for construction and materials. I like the styling too, but that comes down to taste.


    I was expecting something good but this bomber really blew me away when it got here. It's one of those times where pics alone can't show how nice an item is (and pics of the bomber always have looked good). 38 fit me great, just enough room to layer. I'm all set to sell most of my other winter jackets because I don't want to wear anything but this bomber during winter. It's that good.

    one last purchase, sample piece that i couldn't resist:

    It's unfortunate krane is such an unfortunate name.

    How many of those jackets are you going to cop?

    And he actually took out details to make it more affordable. The details on the 08 year, which I have, but which my buddy Tiger Tom (old school SF) is wearing somewhere in Afghanistan, are even better. For example, he had a hand quilted elastic waistband and cuffs, which he discontinued to bring the price under the $900 mark. The fit is better now though. My winter jacket of choice is an olive Cyril, and all of my bags are Krane custom. Just the zippers alone cost more than the manufacture for many "luxury" bags.

    Yeah Aeglus, do review of the jacket, i've been eyeing one myself for this winter season but I can't seem to find measurements or how the jacket fits.

    Either Krane or that TOJ fishtail....

    They're pretty good for $20. Plus I don't really care about black belts. Just need it for suiting since every other occasion I wear that tan/orange belt. Don't expect great quality though as it is genuine leather.

    What? Isn't genuine leather good? As opposed to plastic leather?

    I had the bomber from 08 Materials were rediculous - if I lived somewhere legit cold I would have kept forever. Lined in a military blanket, waxed canvas outer, leather toggles, leather trim, riri zips everywhere, bemberg in the sleeves, flannel lined pockets. The elastic mesh trim was crazy awesome The bags weren't as nice as the outerwear IMO, the newer ones were nicer.
