I have been curious about that hunting jacket since it dropped and then sold out at S&S.

It is bold, but from pics, can’t decide if it is the epitome of cool or too carnival-like.

Thoughts?
It's very cool, but I think it would stand out too much. I would probably have rocked that when I was 23 and my sense of style was "everyone look at me," but it's almost too much of a flex? like anything else you wear with that piece would just not even get appreciated

I have not found much information about this model. It seems a black grain version may be available for SS21 (RMC Japan site), but I have not seen measurements or other details.

Would you happen to know more about the Style King? Which year is this particular version from? Shinki H/H?
I know about as much as you. This one is steerhide, per the description. Apparently 50s style.

Anyone here knows anything about Timeworn clothing? They're seem to have no online presence at all, yet they seem to make really cool products.

Timeworn purposely doesn’t have any socials or an official website. Anything you see online isn’t official, even if they use the name. They’ve been around since 2010 as well and despite having no presence have a very loyal following in Japan, China and Korea and a few guys in Europe, and Australia. Maybe a couple guys in the US.

Only the vintage showroom in London and VMC in Zurich stock them. Outside of that there just the three locations in Japan.

I like that they keep a low profile, and don’t allow photography in the shop in Japan. They’re still a really small company compared to a lot of brands so I’m glad they aren’t overexposed.
