Interesting. You are probably right. I know nothing about this stuff beyond what I have seen IRL from the Real McCoys. I was only looking at certain styles of leather jackets like the Mulholland (Nelson 30s, etc) and the cafe/board racers.

I have tried a number of the leather jackets at Self Edge. The one I really like is The Flat Head Delraiser. The Fine Creek Leather jackets are very cool in many cases, but I have yet to find one that fits well enough to commit to.

I love that you have fairly expansive taste in clothing so we get to see all of this stuff, but I thought I had a problem and I feel much better now. 😂
It’s my brand story.

Hickorees tried years ago, but I don’t think it sold well at all. Freewheelers I think is niche even among other adjacent brands I feel even compared to RMC or brands like Warehouse. Outside of the leathers, a good number of their garments can feel a bit costume-y but they’re still really nice and well made.

When I think of the US ‘scene’ for this kind of stuff I feel it leans heavy into streetwear denim brands like 3sixteen or Rgt. Or it’s the Iron Heart crowd which imo is just a bit bland.
I want to see Timeworn in person. Thinking about going to Japan later this year to do just that.

if you want to discuss that jacket’s sizing you can ask @almostvintagestyle on Instagram. He owned 3 different Mulhollands in the last 2 years. He’s also extremely candid and genuinely helpful.
They also have a very strong opinion on leather.

I’m keeping an eye on things in Japan hoping that I can make the trip again in the fall. Their vaccinations don’t seem to be going well at the moment but hopefully by summer things will be looking well.

The Timeworn shop is great, albeit rather small. But it’s also close to RMC, and all the other big shops around Shibuya/harajuku.

Lmao. I swear he’s nicer than he seems.
Yeah I agree, have interacted a few times he is very friendly, just ultra particular. Which I mean, if you're spending more than an average monthly mortgage on individual jackets is not unwarranted
I have tried a number of the leather jackets at Self Edge.
There's a Self Edge store in PDX. First time I went in when they opened whoever was working there was superbly rude because I didn't "know" as much as them about demin. I didn't know nothing, but a lot of the brands they carry were not readily available at the time. So I asked a lot of questions that might have seemed dumb, but ultimately I ended up leaving and never went back. They have some tempting inventory but that interaction was just severely off putting.

I got my 5G injection going I can give us cell service

This user on SuFu has been hawking Timeworn: https://supertalk.superfuture.com/profile/213782-saisen/

Their initial bundle is dwindling (the khaki flight jacket sold), but it appears they may have received a new batch: https://supertalk.superfuture.com/topic/160663-atlastco-butcher-products-timeworn-clothing/?do=findComment&comment=3336063
I think he was just posting spring releases, as that’s what all that stuff was (I got two pairs of those socks). He’s in Australia and I don’t think he collects much anymore, but he used to have a big collection of stuff.

Edit: Ironically wearing a pair today lol

Anyone here speaks/write Japanese decently? I have questions I’d like to ask a seller. Not sure if Google Translation will get me there.

EDIT : HOLY F I MADE IT! I RESISTED PLACING A BID ON THE MOBSTER JACKET.

To be continued next week, when it’s relisted...
