What are good places to see those F/W previews? Somewhere on IG?

Usually you would get snippets on IG and on the blog

I do have lots of old denim. But I ended up sold most of them because of the force of nature. :D If I can't fit into the jeans I just sold them. I don't like to collect.

I do own a pair of NYLON FN087 WW2 model but I can't remember if I sold them or not, either way they still be new. I think volvo owns the Porky's, not me.

I'd need an hour every morning to go over that collection and decide which pants to wear :D

I'm in no rush, it's 106 degrees outside right now. Don't have much use for a leather jacket. :D

I really like this jacket too. I love the combo of (1) not too long, (2) pockets made for your hands, (3) zipper, (4) not black...

Questions I have are: will I be able to find one in a 46 and how much will it hurt my wallet?

The pleats and buckles on the back are wild. That jacket is like a good mullet, business up front and a party at the back.

That’s a lot of detail about a item that may or may not exist ...

Hypothetically speaking a 46 would be a possibility at an estimated $2500

Yeah...I don't think I could spend that kind of money without being able to try it on first.
Would hate to go through with that and it not fit right. :wacko:

I know a guy that sent his own jacket nearly 6000 miles to another guy he’d never met so this other guy could try it on ...

Maybe I'll take a trip to Japan (whenever all this cools down...which doesn't seem to be anytime soon stateside) and make it to Desolation Row.
From what I've seen size 46 leather jackets are hard to track down since there are few of them made to begin with.
Plus I would have to really think about spending that much cash on something I couldn't wear for a large portion of the year. If I lived somewhere colder it would be easier to justify.

X-post from the evo thread ... 1951’s off for a long overdue wash. The top block is getting thin and my arse isn’t getting smaller so they might be near retirement - we’ll see

This is probably the first time I’ve had all my FW clothes together under the same roof. It took a clandestine visit to a remote location and a re-make of the spare room ... and then it turned out I still don’t have enough fekin space :sad:   But anyway here’s a couple of pics with most of it, there are jeans folded up away in another cupboard and you might be able to peek into where the lamp is to see I had to leave the back of the wardrobe off to access an old built in cupboard which gave me about another 1.5m of hanging after I put in some twin wall shelving/rails

I’ll still get around to photographing the rest of it ‘properly’ (on the mannequin or whatever) in the near future rather than this nonsense of taking pics of a home makeover :laugh:
