    Does anyone else wear leather by Seraphin? He is Russian but works in Paris.

    Great leather. A little conservative for me, and I'm not really into leather jackets these days, but you can't knock the quality.

    Conservitive?

    I have a purple suede members only cut from Seraphin that my father gave me. (buttons, no Zipper)
    Of course it was made in the 80's and has some serious shoulder pads.

    In Paris, at Theo Fil, I saw a shearling dyed purple, the outside tanned a slick black. It was cut like a motorcycle jacket.

    Yes I do, I have three (one branded Hermes). Most incredible leathers and the choices..... Buttery soft reindeer lined in deep purple fur, below the hip length with a motorcyle collar (Think Fay's Aston Jacket taken to another level). Another in incredible goatskin suede, cement colour and in the light it actually has a dusting of "goldish" something.. soft as heck, I think it was called the Daytona. Third custom job, hip length goatsuede motorcycle styled jacket in anthracite.

    Are you a rock star.
    Those jackets take serious attitude to pull off.

    I did not ask about it when I was shopping at Theo Fil. I think there is one other store in Paris that handles Seraphin. Maybe there I will ask.

    [​IMG] When you zip up the reindeer jacket, not a bit of purple peeps out.... and the fur is pretty short, under an inch. It is a winter jacket, and I have been tempted several times to wear a t-shirt under it since the fur is sooo.... nice...... The cement coloured one with a "gold" treatment is really very very subtle, you do no see the slight shimmer at all, only under bright sunlight, and only a very subtle shimmer then. The black goat is actually the nicest, and is mainly accentuated by the cut.

    There are several stores in Paris that carry Seraphin, Linea Nuovo comes to the top of my head.

    I found a springweight leather shirt jacket, unlined, by Seraphin in Montreal. It is light tan, nearly gray, with a tobacco pinpoint print, slightly distressed.

    The one I bought at Theo Fil is a 3/4 length shearling, cement inside and out, suede out.
