That Corpus jacket would look good if you gave it a little more length and moved the pockets down. Ditch the extra zippered pockets and tone down the collar too but then it might just look like a plain old bomber.

Those Pakistani kids must be more talented than kids from the first world. At 6 I was losing housekeys and wasn't trusted to ride my bike to school alone; those kids are making fucking Dior Homme replicas. Sheeeeeeeiiit.

The poverty and suffering make third world produced cheap leathers so much sweeter.

Thinnest leather. Weird feeling. (I'm used to lamb and ram.) Horrible painted hardware. Can't remember if the stitching was decent though.

I actually think ram might be mistranslation from Japanese, because my leather specialists have told me there is no difference between the feel of lambskin or adult sheepskin. Softness of sheepskin is derived from it's high lanolin content and porous nature, and not so much by young age.

Hey SuFu hope you guys are cool.

Anyone who has had any outstanding issues regarding transactions with us (so long as they're genuinely our shortcomings) firstly let us apologize we have had major improvements in our services and since we first started the custom service (which is still available btw) We're using the highest grades of leather available and never intend or intended to leave any issues outstanding so as long as SuFu don't mind our email is [email protected]. and we'l look at them again and hopefully resolve them.

Regards

BlackScissors

I'm no expert of course. Bought my jacket from hangdj who said it was ram. (Viridi-anne) Going along with VA's tradition of searching out better materials and construction, it makes sense to me that there would be different somehow.

Hm fake edit: The tag actually says goatskin rather than sheep or ram. That accounts for the difference between the feeling of lamb. The goat is thick and grainy, but still very soft.

I think the ram thing was a Julius engrish thing that caught on. Winq's Julius ramskin was no different in weight (it was washed out and crazed along the grain by whatever distressing they used) to my TOJ lamb, in fact when I buy it from the markets here it's just called 'sheep skin' with no reference to animal age. Leathers are all cast offs of the meat industry so it makes sense they are all lamb skins, considering their size and their origin, but I really don't think there is much difference. How long do sheeps live for anyway? haha.

It's cute you slipped this little apology in a long rambling sentence. I must've seen 5 different people say you guys fucked them over with no resolution.

Whoa, branesplode. I swear to god I thought I looked at the tag and it said ram.

well them 5 (cant please everyone) people need to get in touch again and we'll look at their claims. Its not our intention to 'fuck people over' and as mentioned many months ago when we were on SuFu full time we had an administrator who couldnt cope with the mountain of inquiries we receive regarding custom pieces which as mentioned has been now resolved.

In any case some of these people who feel fucked over by us need to provide evidence and get in touch.

Anyone sitting on the fence regarding our jackets need to get in touch rest assured we are using the same quality leather (goat, Italian nappa, lamb skin, glove touch drum dyed full aniline etc) that your $4500 jackets are made of and using the same stitch count, generally people are more than happy with our jackets as our feeback on ebay suggests.

Peace.
