    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering who makes this beautiful jacket. Looks like some kind of a variation on the Shearling. I know, it's a women's piece, but I was hoping perhaps the maker has a similar offering for men. I LOVE those Riri zippers!

    Spotted on Monocle magazine.

    Thanks!

    When you ask for track downs like this, to get the best information, you should give as much information as possible. The issue and date of the magazine, the page it was on, whether it is a larger ad spread or just a 1 page spread, etc... All of this helps a researcher pin down where something might be.

    Damn, I wish I hadn't thrown the issue away...

    What I can tell you is that it was issue 27 (volume 03) from October 2009.

    This was the issue's cover:

    If I remember correctly, the ad was a two-page spread (the model appearing only on one of them), and if I'm not mistaken, it was at the very first page of the issue, on the inner side of the cover, actually.

    I thought that it would be an easy search for the pros here because not many brands are using Riri zippers, and even less of them retain the factory zipper pulls.

    Are you sure it's from that far back, because it seems to be from the FW Rolex campaign: http://www.polyvore.com/rolex_ad_campaign_2010-2011_myfdb/thing?id=82470122

    Riri zippers are used by tons of brands. I mean, even in the leather jackets that little old me has helped develope, we use Riri, YKK Excella or Lamp, by default, with a choice of something like Talon for a more "authentic" look.

    Also, it was a custom commission from Carla Dawn Behrle (www.carladawnbehrlenyc.com) for that Rolex campaign:

    Wow, brilliant find! But are you sure it's the one? While very similar, it doesn't have those beautiful Riri "Flach" pulls, how's that?

    And I'm certain it was from that Monocle.

    It was in a lot of magazines. But it was part of the FW10 advertising campaign.

    And that is the exact jacket. The zipper pulls are identical. As the designer says, the jacket was specially commissioned for that campaign, and various sources back this up.
