    Considering I am seeing interest in this maker, I thought we might as well make a dedicated thread. I have been interested in their jackets for a while because they have a unique flair and are hitting a different style, mainly the 70s. Another aspect to note is the creativity that oozes from each of their jackets, these are not reproductions.

    As some of you may know, I have been to the shop in Tokyo and have a jacket on order already. But we will get back to this later, here are the models I know of:

    Probably the model that screams the most 70s rocker, the lightning

    A jacket I have been eyeing for a long time, Leaf

    Kept mistaking the name if this jacket with the previous one, this is Twist

    Keep @ton312 out of this thread, it's not safe for him...

    A bit too bold for my more conservative aesthetic, but the design and construction look fantastic. I wish I had the gonads to wear something like this. Not yet. I look forward to seeing your forthcoming jacket @red devil . Thank you for continuing to broaden the horizons of TFL with your new discoveries.

    Something different, I don't think I would ever wear something with fringes... but this is close :)

    I am calling him in the next post, he likes to live dangerously :D

    Thanks @Superfluous ! The maker is widely creative, so I hope he will come up with a model that you would consider wearing. How do you like the general silhouette of these jackets, would you see yourself wearing a plain version of any these jackets?

    And to finish in a good way:

    The church, the name shows the source of inspiration clearly.

    @ton312 , how are you finding these lapels? :D

    @red devil , I actually love ALL of these! But yeah, the trucker looking one is perfect. I see it on Facebook now, it's even got epaulets. That one, and the first jacket. It's almost like a superhero costume, the first one. The one with fringes is also very very cool.

    With any luck, I'll be going to Japan next year and will definitely try to visit these guys, if possible! Post more!

    Grail/dream jackets for me. Maybe not so much the fringe but everything else is pure masterpiece. Brilliant jackets. Really these are wearable leather art. Couldn’t love these more!!

    I’m just letting my eyes water up as I look at the seam work. These jackets look alive. Just crazy beautiful. Like the evolution of East West.

    Sure thing, would love to! I am hoping September. Maybe late August. Definitely skipping the Olympics rush so after that's done. Idea is to first visit Tokyo and then move on from there.

    Although I was initially thinking of a two tone leaf, after discussing it with the maker, we decided to go with the twist in various shades of grey / black.
    It is already in production

    It is definitely a good idea to avoid the olympics

    These jacket styles remind me of this meme:

    Speaking of too many seams.... for them, not enough seams lol. I am curious how much they charge, & by comparison, if I order a plain one or two piece “normal jacket”, perhaps they can give me a major discount?

    That's what i see:

    [​IMG]

    They look very well made and are definitely interesting designs, but they are too elvish for me.

    I could definitely see @navetsea rock one of these...
    (the jackets, not the armour!)
