Hey everyone,

Living in Paris, I'm literally surrounded by a plethora of clothing options. It's quite overwhelming, yet exciting at the same time.

I came across a store that offers something quite unique – they craft leather jackets completely tailored to your preferences, from the materials and cut to the overall look. Pretty cool, right? On the other end of the spectrum, there's another place that sells, among other things, crocodile leather jackets for around €8000. While it's not exactly my style, it got me thinking about the quality of such exotic leather.

I'm curious to hear your thoughts on crocodile leather jackets, or if you have any insights into the quality and craftsmanship involved. Are they worth the hype and the hefty price tag?

Looking forward to learning from all of you and maybe picking up a few tips along the way!

Cheers!

The top pic is actually a very nice fit. Nice, narrow sleeves. Not everyone can rock reptile hide, but I imagine it can look good if you have the right attitude. Must have a matching croc watch band and boots (lol, not). Not my cup of tea. If they have this hide in Ferrari red, I have a feeling @red devil might be intrigued.:)

Edit - lol, for some reason when I first read OP post I only saw the second and third picture.

Hope my answer makes more sense now. There is Ferrari red!

There are certainly different levels of quality in crocodile jackets, from the hides, the workmanship, etc.

These do not look great, I have seen better examples for cheaper. Do you know where these jackets are made?

They are cheating on the fit, notice the clip on the back?

Although, I can't tell whether they are doing that on the black jacket tbf.

I already have a pair of boots in red croc, I guess I need to post pics lol
