    Interesting. I'm not normally a fan of this style in 'non-leather', but it really works in this particular suede - rather better, at that, that it would in a regular leather of the same colour, imo.

    If it's real natural indigo dye (and Japan is the home of that, so it should be) it's going to bleed blue dye forever on everything it touches.
    Nasty.
    Antiseptic, but nasty.

    There's no place that I itch where this would scratch. The (hide?) almost looks like microfiber... a Value City furniture couch if you will.

    In case you're wondering, this... thing costs $2,295.

    Apparently, this is not one of those $20,95 jackets the eBay is full of, you know, the kind you get from one of those stores with stolen images, but instead... I don't know what it is, actually. All I know is that it costs $2,295.

    If you don't believe me, which probably is the case because what, you can see for yourself...

    Also apparently, this jacket is timeless. Like vintage Japanese denim (didn't know clothes from the 90's is now considered vintage).

    Oh, and it's sold out. As in, someone bought it.

    I like it but get that people may assume I am on my way to shoot a music video. Like AbbaDatDeHat said, it would look better worn.

    @Monitor, thanks for the link. Yeah, it's real natural indigo dye which means it will never stop bleeding color. Anytime you touch it, it will mark your fingers blue, anything it ever touches will get stained blue. You're going to be very unpopular.
    There's a reason that everything the model is wearing is blue.
    It's like my kendo gear. Ten years of wearing that six days a week, and it still leaves blue marks on me.
    You could wash it (is suede ok to wash?) until all the dye has gone and it's a pale blue-gray like 80's stadium rock jeans, but who has time for this?

    Unfortunately it was a size 36ish but went for quite cheap (Around 360$ I recall)
