    Man, what a fountain of knowledge there! I wish someone had told me all of this before I bought like 20+ leather jackets...

    I’m happy for most guys to embrace this ethos.

    Looks very much like Valley Fair mall in San Jose, California. I think this guy would have his mind blown if he discovered the nuances of leather, besides "it's soft". The enthusiasm seems to be there.

    Yes! We clearly have been doing it wrong, now I know how to look like a "sexy ninja" and "badass". Don't know if I missed other gems... as I just skipped through lol

    I couldn’t get past 1:30. Interesting he didn’t mention the Thursday boot co. Leather jacket. Maybe he did later in the video. But after 1:30. I had to leave. Poor bastard doesn’t have a clue. It’s like me trying to do a home video of brain surgery using a fork and spoon.

    He's enthusiastic but pretty clueless. I think he'd have a blast discovering the brands we discuss here and then probably delete his video.

    In fairness, I think it's horses for courses. He's looking for a certain type of aesthetic, and he's enthusiastic about what he's after. At least he's enthusiastic about leather jackets, even if the entire thing is aimed at a mall mindset.

    I imagine there are thousands of people who will lap up this sort of advice, and through their own enthusiasm will find out about the more artisanal end of the spectrum where we position ourselves.

    Good luck to them. And to him too; he knows what he wants and he's full of energy about it.

    Pretty crazy...of course I really didn't have much of a clue either (Quite the Wilson's shopper/addict) until I stepped into a Motorcycle dealership that (back in the day) sold Vansons. Hard to beleive but that was a revelation. That whole "Soft - no break-in and wear it for years" mentality is so 2019... Hum. :)

    At least he is passionate!

    He keeps calling leather jackets "investments" when are we all going to get that sweet sweet return?
    Does he know things we dont?

    I'm certain this guy is a social media influencer who is shilling for the companies he's promoting, and doesn't have any depth of knowledge beyond the talking points his sponsors fed him. Amusing to make fun of, but also safe to ignore.

    If you make the mistake of clicking on his other videos... you both will and will not be disappointed.

    I think that's exactly what social media influencers do, isn't it?
