    /\ The LEB jacket looks nice. Would like to hear more about the line from someone who has handled it in person.

    If I every buy a white leather jacket (won't be my first), I will spray it with this stuff:

    Yeah, definitely one of the more interesting leather jackets out there. I definitely want to see what it looks like after a bit of wear and tear.

    You could always contact Holger directly about any of the items he has for sale. Great guy.

    Agreed, Holger is awesome to deal with.

    The seamwork on LEB is more noticeable in this pic.

    i know from Holger that the black LEB jacket is a 52 and he is a 48, so it is 2 size to big on him, bad fit pics.
    the white leather is a 48 and fits great.
    Also the LEB pant is one size to big (50).
    The new pant and new leather jacket (ss14) is very interesting!!!

    RE: A1923 SS14- sorry, but I've been asked not to share images. I'm sure some of you guys that have good relationships with your shops can request them. For me personally, the clothing looks amazing. ramie/ wool&cotton blends & selvedge cotton are the heavily favored fabrics this season.

    Shoes and Boots-wise: +1 on what Uzairh stated earlier. There is dual zip/tornado style boot that is really neat; although I'd prefer a full side zip to be honest. Lots of cream and off white: derby, backlace boot & slanted back zip. Hot black cordovan is back in reverse and full grain on the ankle boots. A cavallo ankle boot that looks just stunning. Just really a strong collection.

    Speaking of my good friend Holger: IS & CCP

    Between the 2 available now- I lean towards the boot (just love that color, not sure how practical it is but...) or if you can find that derby in horse then get that. My buddy Eton97 has a pair and dyed the laces black- :nodding:.

    Thanks! Yeah I think I may just spring for the L-0 since I probably won't see that color for a while. The I remember the derbies being ridiculously stiff so they may take longer to get used to anyway. Black laces sound sick, but I really like that pale/cold grey!

    Why can't we have a nice simple side-zip from A1923 or MA+? Almost as though some law stops them.

    ExAngel, L0 can be ordered in different color options. For AW13, they had gray, red, black and natural as options. Talk to Marco at PNP if you want a special order.

    I'm with you on this one- need side zips or at least normal side zips.

    reminds me the the orlando bloom thread from years back, lol : http://www.styleforum.net/t/56649/id-orlando-blooms-boots/0_10

    Ha ha! That thread is funny!

    As of now, there are 2 styles that I would like to buy if I can find a good pair:
    - Side zips
    - Back laces

    And no, not the back laces by A1923 SS14 :)


    Any guesses what these boots are? Hint: Not Guidi

    Simple side-zips are not "artisanal" enough. :foo:

    Yeah, my thought as well. The designer of Vadel is ex-wjk, which was founded by Jun Hashimoto, who is ex-Carpe, and ... man, there's a really convoluted relationship chart just waiting to be drawn, here.
