    Rick Owens and Julius leathers are two designers who have a cult following for their avant-garde and dark aesthetic. I love their pieces and find them timeless, while others can find them over-the-top and too fashion-forward. It's hard to say who's right - there's no right or wrong answer!

    From iconic leather pieces like pants, jackets, and trench coats to modern must-haves, including dresses, shorts, and two-piece sets, there are too many options available in leather stylish clothing. Anyone can order leather clothes online with free shipping.

    Strip the finishing, re-dye it, and condition the jacket and it'll look shiny and black as ever (or just have a professional do it for you).

    Yes, it seems to me that it's impossible to affect the material in such a way that it doesn't wash out.

    I believe a lot of them were washed, but they were pretty jet black. Maybe hard to find a used one that hasn't been worn out.

    All we've talked about is body type in the last four posts.

Cheers Mark.

    Julius rider jackets are great. RO jackets with ribbed cuff sleeves, so you can bunch them up. Otherwise, you'll need to find a good tailor to shorten the sleeve from the shoulder.

    nuke is good quality, sturdy, you wont see any destroyed deerskin or cashmere blends tho, more heavy duty synthetic materials, waterproof stuff, etc. ykk zips on the older models, riri on some of the newer ones. lots of jeans and graphic tees too but dont own any of those
    Interesting. How do you find such pieces? I imagine searching "NUKE" or the related Japanese phrase wouldn't bring up much on Yahoo Auctions?

    Cloth Works for Undead gasoline model? Anyhow old Julius (pre Thieves) always interested me but the sizing is wonky as all hell. I'm interested in what Nuke's quality was like, too.
