I can't decide how I feel about that datho...I think I need to know how much.

It seems a bit shapeless somehow, but I'm not sure.

What the shuddering fcuk is a clothing capsule?

ETA, How did I not know about this phenom???? Luckily Imogen has shown me all I need to know about creating capsules. Basically its having stuff in your wardrobe that goes with other stuff in your wardrobe, so you can wear the same things without looking the same... 'mazing! I feel I'd have known about all of this sooner if we had that sartorialfashion thread the Dis & co always wanted.

Worth it just for the buffalo leather. I nearly bought a pair of cycling shoes at the weekend because they had kangaroo leather. Still might.

It worked well through the summer. Nice smelling, lightweight leather - just wore it with some Furyan jeans. Much cooler than the full Rukka commuter gear.

Why waxed cotton? <qualification> never owned a motorbike </qualification> seems a bit road safety man when you can have leather and look like Lemmy from motorhead or Marlon Brando in the wild bunch or something.

Not overly keen. I think it would look a bit incongruous on a mille. Then again, mine probably would too.

Just seen that Clarks are now making boots in collaboration with Norton.

They're not bad at all.

I think he's talking about the entirely custom build that's in the background of the Enzo jacket pic you posted earlier.

fcuking hell - months ago! ID you lunatic, agree it looks some sort of custom to me. I'd guess based on a Harley maybe? Ginj, you probably know more about these sorts of fcukers, don't you?

Someone got them for me for Christmas, just after I was paralysed, so I totally forgot about them until a few weeks ago. There very nice - just need a bike to go with them now.
