Shangri-La - “Explorator” Leather Jacket - Black. Early on, we were the only brand carrying leathers from Shangri-La in America. Since then, they've been very good at growing their brand slowly in America and we're now one of a very few with a selection in their leather goods. These guys trust us to represent the brand in America and we appreciate them thoroughly for that. This jacket instantly brought out our inner nostalgia. This style jacket was all over our childhood in the late '80s and early '90s. It's clearly a much earlier inspiration than that, but all styles make a comeback. We're hedging our bet that this will give you that same nostalgia tingle that we don't often get from pieces of earlier time periods. Maybe it won't, regardless is one of the baddest jackets in our lineup and would instantly upgrade your wardrobe to a level hardly which hardly anyone could compete. Inspired by late 40s British motorcycle jackets and revisited with a unique Italian touch, the “Explorator” Black Leather Jacket represents an authentic garment made of vegetable tanned, drum dyed, top grain Lambskin from Tuscany (Italy). The lining is made of “Desert Sand” color 100% cotton, and the collar-tab closes the neck to keep you warm during winter and cold trips.

Shangri-La - “Explorator” Leather Jacket - Black

Maybe it won't, regardless is one of the baddest jackets in our lineup and would instantly upgrade your wardrobe to a level hardly which hardly anyone could compete. 

Inspired by late 40s British motorcycle jackets and revisited with a unique Italian touch, the “Explorator” Black Leather Jacket represents an authentic garment made of vegetable tanned, drum dyed, top grain Lambskin from Tuscany (Italy). This variation is lined with a beautiful limited suede that is no longer included on the jacket. It is an Original ancient Map of Bergamo Territory from 17th century found in an old archive, and brought back to life on Silk.

Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size medium in the pictures. This piece, in comparison to the "Café" is a very similar fit. There's obviously more length in the body and maybe even just a little extra room overall, but the arms are still tailored. We would recommend true to size or one size up if you're not looking for tailored. Tommy is 5'10", 162lbs with a 40" chest.

Freenote - 15oz Avila Slim Straight Denim - Blue/Brown.

It's been some time since we've had indigo denim from Freenote, and we couldn't think of a better introduction than this blue/brown. If you know anything about our preferences, you know we love an earth-tone weft. Well, it doesn't get any more earthy than this. The brown on these is deeper than any we've seen from persimmon, turmeric, or catechu dyes in the past. It's a true mocha-colored brown that we think makes for one hell of a stylistic denim. The contrast between indigo and brown is a lot less harsh than that of a traditional jean, and this makes for a better-looking cuff in our opinion. It's also right in our sweet spot for weight. We really dig anything between 14-16oz. It has the perfect amount of crunch to give you all of those wonderful lines around the legs without being so hard to break in. This is the fabric we've been waiting for Freenote to work with for years!

Freenote - CD-4 Jacket - Black.

When we saw this fabric, even via catalog images, we knew we had to have it in the shop. It's such a unique twist for the guys at Freenote that lends to a more contemporary look. If you're like us, you'll think this baby is waxed up front. Crazy enough, it's not. This is a double pigment dyed fabric from Japan that gives off the look of a waxed piece, without all the upkeep of a waxed piece. It has a nice crunchy texture to it that even feels waxed in person. We couldn't believe our ears when they told us about it at a recent show. It's lined throughout the body with Alpaca and the sleeves have this gorgeous burnt orange satin. This thing is truly luxurious. It's so warm and looks so damn good. It functions like an N-1 at about half the price!

Freenote - Jepson Sashiko Plaid - Indigo.

The Jepson is a known staple at this point, but their ability to make it look new with every release is pretty astonishing. We said that last time but they've done it again. A mix of sashiko and plaid is almost too much to handle. It's a classic 2 pocket shirt that can be worn with almost anything. It has so many layers to explore right now, and even more, will expose its true nature once the indigo starts to fade. This baby is a standalone piece that doesn't really need other layers to make it pop.
Indigofera - Kurt Jacket - Indigo Single Stripe.

The single stripe has become a staple at the shop over the last couple of years, but always in pant form. When we saw this classic chore coat-style work jacket come up, we couldn't say no. This fabric always constructs so nicely and the indigo pops like crazy when it's hit with the one wash. We are super intrigued by the mismatched pockets and all the extra sewing work throughout. The extra pockets and banded collar are the extra details that draw you in, but most people stay for that gorgeous Japanese fabric.
