    I think that once @red devil gets his Electric Leather Studios jacket we will all be drooling.

    I don't know how I missed this thread, even with the fact my username was mentionned yet I didn't get any alerts, very strange o_O

    Really cool thread!

    It seems to be still available, if it was at least a 42 I would have gambled!

    This one is very very cool, and works very well in Suede but I would have it made in Ezo deerskin... Maybe I should see if Four Speed would be up to the task? Not his usual style but he has made quite a few different one offs.
    In dark red of course! :D


    The jacket was completed a few months ago, I was supposed to be in Japan around April, but with the situation that trip got cancelled. Now I have lost weight, about 14kg and am thinking that the best thing would be to pick it up personally whenever it will be.

    I have other plans for him, one quite wild, but that would place it within the average when compared to East West ;)

    Aero did a few deerskin shirts for Iron Heart that used leather from a traditional tanner in Germany. That'd be a cool choice.

    Here's a photo of Haraki's after a few years of wear.

    I need to do some more research into nordic tanneries, they have a rich history in deer, elk and moose.

    I have to say the Rover looks nice in darker colours as well

    There was even a version with different colours

    Wow, yes...the green!
    I just received a 70s Bates that , while infinitely more tame, kinda fills my need for these big-collared beauties...but I’d trade it in for the Smoke in a heartbeat ;). The burgundy stitching on the green leather is a fantastic touch.
