Would love to hear more about Brio; hoping to actually be able to get back to Beijing for the first time since the Plague in Spring 2023. I'm definitely interested in hearing about places like this worth looking at (also anywhere selling Bronson and such!).

It's a very high end menswear shop, more focused on bespoke tailoring and things that go with it than on the more Amekaji/workwear aesthetic popular on this forum. I have never visited Brio (or Beijing in general), but I doubt they sell Bronson.

Here's a 2015 article on the store:

They also have an IG account @briobeijing.

Ah, yes - I should have been clearer, that was two separate thoughts. Will check the article out, thanks - I'd love to have a suit made out there if I can find somewhere at the right price, though not having much Mandarin I've mostly only seen the touristy places so far, which obviously sell a novelty of a m2m suit at speed, but aren't really what I'm after.

Is this embossed or stitched? Nay if embossed but if it is stitched this maker has some very sick needle work skills.

Stitched. Crosses are pretty much Chrome Hearts trademark and they are always stitched, never ever embossed. Except for the logo on the leather tag.
I can't say I like it much either but no doubt a lot of work went into that jacket for sure.

That's crazy! The man hours it would take to make that jacket. Not my style but I gotta admire it. This is statement jacket for sure....

It's currently being sold if you're interested. $17K. :D

That's what, 7 priciest RMC's? Seems a lot of money but honestly, you all the regular jackets you could buy for that kinda cash combined couldn't make an impact of this one. It's fun being rich.
