And what a provenance it is! In addition to his genius, he was a cool guy.There are others of this model out there, and for a lot less
The price is only because of the provenance.
Classic Einstein. If this conversation never took place, it should have.That's easy - she had a real thing for intelligent men. There are women (and men) who find genius to be the ultimate aphrodisiac.
Supposedly this happened.
Monroe: "I want to have your children. With my looks and your brain, they'll be perfect!"
Einstein: "What if they have my looks and your brain?"
Indeed. There are plenty of us out there that identify as sapiosexual. For me, there's no bigger turn on in a woman than the ability to outthink me.
Wonder if there's a leather reproduction version coming via LVC:
Anyone have a link for the Einstein jacket?
I agree! The thinner shape looks much better and suits the rest of the jacket as well. I really love the slash handwarmers over the patch pockets too. That looks to be a really nice jacket actually. But a $1200 lambskin? It's a no.Then again, in LVCs favor, i do have to point out that they got that shawl collar figured out MUCH better than any of the fancy repro makers we look out here. Haven't seen one Himel, Thedi, Aero, etc jacket with such a perfectly done shawl collar.

I finally decided this is a style I just can't pull off. I wish I could. It's just not in the cards.I was just thinking that... It's actually a perfectly beautiful jacket. It's the nicest one out there, even cooler looking than that Freewheelers or whatever it was. Would love to have it even tho the whole thing would probably make Einstein cringe.
Interesting point. From the pics I wouldn't have thought sheep at all. Looks too thick.I've been interested in this new Cossack as well, but I couldn't find measurements anywhere and I didn't want to take a chance with the fit at that price.
Canoe club and Heddels list it as made from sheepskin and Unionmade has it made from cowhide.. I'm not sure which is correct, and its sold out in both places now...
