    Mr Porter have made a video about the Japanese leather jacket brand Blackmeans. It's probably not to this forum's tastes, but I figured it might be of interest.

    The tweed is a great idea. I've always loved the look of it on old amps and Fender cases. Looks perfect on that jacket.

    Apparently, Selfridges is a stockist, I will go check it out when I have the chance. I wonder what leather they use.

    The jackets are nice but some of the stuff said in the video... Yeah, punk sure is the way of life in a $4000 leather jacket. I don't even know anymore what subculture they're trying to emulate over there.

    Nice and original idea to use Fender tweed with leather.

    "We don't identify as a subculture"

    That's what the video says anyway.

    I find it funny that they're selling you a 2000$ suede jacket distressed in ways that non of my 70 year old jackets have been worn. I have 3 suede vintage jackets and none of them show any damage like that and they are worn quite a lot. You're basically buying damaged goods. Same with the ironed and sanded leather.

    He was ironing it while he put it on! He could have burn his whole hand.

    I like the jacket but the over the top video...ugh. Just a simple description/ philosophy and let the jacket speak for itself. Sometimes saying nothing says it all or a picture is worth a thousand words etc.

    Dude, it's the me all the time online generation. Literally obsessed with posting up pics of themselves or vids, or whatever. Need constant attention. Jacket is still cool :)

    Have known Blackmeans for a while, some of the jackets are really cool but others are way over the top. Even for the supposedly late 70's punk vibe they claim.

    Beautiful stuff! Our brothers/sisters in Japan are true artisans.
