I am begining to like this...

Dior Homme SS07 Leather Jacket
A very well-detailed leather blouson. Epaulets on the shoulders, zips on the pocket and sleeves, a flap covering the zip at the front, pockets on the sleeves and a buckle at the bottom...a really nice leather blouson...

I just bought it. I can't wait for it to arrive. It will be a great way to end the semester.

monsieur AG said...

where did u get it? i am curious? any size 44 still available?

ado rimbo said...

I got it in auction in size 48. I saw it recently in yoox.com in size 50, which is a little bit too big for me. I think it is completely gone in the smaller sizes. Lucky for me, my shoulders are a little broader than the average DH customer,which means that I can easily wear size 48 and 50.

ado rimbo said...

The jacket just arrived today. It is a really beautiful piece. It is very tight though, even for Dior Homme standards. I don't think it's possible to wear a sweater underneath it!

alex said...

I like this too, but its kinda hard finding a brand new ones now. Your best bet would be on yahoo auctions. Sometimes you might get a new like condition.

How much was it at yoox anyways?

alex said...

or maybe just get a white version from diabro, and have them colored black proffesionally? should cost around $50-70ish to have them done.

ado_rimbo said...

They were selling it in yoox for about 3,000 USD. It was a size 50 though. If you regularly wear 44, I think it may be a good idea to do what Alex says: buy the white diabro version in 46 and have it professionally painted black.

monsieur AG said...

nah...i won't be buying any leather jacket other than size 44. I have too many costly regrets getting 46. But nevertheless, thank you guys for your advices...

ado rimbo said...

I hope you can find it in 44. This jacket is super tight though. I honestly can't wear a sweater under mine. Also, have you consider alterations? If you get a really, really good tailor, he can bring a jacket down by almost one size. I go to the same tailor that does the alterations for Gucci here and he always does great work. It has to be an awesome tailor though...

monsieur AG said...

haha...i can't bear to alter the original jacket...

ado rimbo said...

Really? I always need some alteration or another to get the best fit out of the clothes. I always need to get the arm fixed for every DH jacket that I buy. Otherwise they are too long.

monsieur AG said...

yeah...sometimes, i think that the sleeves are to big..

I got this today!!! HONG KONG shop re-stock it, by 40% off. I got the size 44. and there's a size 46 left. It's $21200 after discount! I can't zip it up even in size 46. It's very very tight, i took the size 44 for slimmer sleeves!

monsieur AG said...

Are you sure they re-stock this jacket? Do they still have a size 44? Its really an atractive price, if i had not bought a new jacket..i would have grab this

issa said...

i grabbed the only 44 this afternoon. My sales kept it for me.there's still 1 size 46. I wear 44 in blazer, but even the 46 is tight for me. just the sleeves are not as slim as i want.

issa said...

in fact, it's dead stock. but i'm so happy that they re-stock it again!!! I was so regret that i hadn't taken it last season. They still stock the one with quilted on chest with a half cape leather in size 44 too. i tried it too.

monsieur AG said...

you are making me tempted man!! HKD21100 is a very good price! Are you sure its that tight? I wear a size 46 in blazer but for leather jacket, i would need to size down.

issa said...

i can't zip up even in size 46, what do you think?? it's damn tight, i tried other size style size 44, it's 2 size down, i can tell you. My friend, a girl, waist 23", need to take deep breathe to zip it up. so if u wear size 46 in blazer, i think u can take the size 46. but i can tell u many ppl have interest in it.

monsieur AG said...

shi*t...this news just came at the wrong time...I just paid for a leather jacket last night...just last night man! I am broke now...

Anyway, do u know if it is a re-stock or left over from last season? If i am not wrong, they can only reserve it for only a few days, right?

issa said...

this is the dead-stock already, my sales associate told me this morning, and he can only holds it for me for 1 days. since it's on sale now, can't really hold any stuffs. you can call hong kong landmark shop for Nicholas, he's very nice and helpful. bt, i'm totally broke....bought 2 leather in 4 days.....have to think to keep both or.....

monsieur AG said...

so you bought both jacket at the landmark store?

Sell it to me if you wanna sell the SS07 jacket....hahaha

issa said...

Nic has showed me 2 blazer from 08SS by KVA......i can only say, they looked like KVA collection.....one was made of super 140's wool....those fabric, i can say, u fell that's from KVA's brand. Not this we used to in DH

issa said...

i usually go to Landmark shop, since Nic is there. I usually call him before i go. To see if there's my size and my style. the 07SS one, no way!

i tried this in size 44. i can zip it up, though it's a bit tight, i was in a HOH tee. sleeves are slim. but for the biker, it's very very tight that zippers has to move half foot to get close~LOL

monsieur AG said...

I am totally not interested in the KVA's collection...its crap...

awww...u got me thinking about the biker jacket man! Where is the size 46? At the TST or Landmark store?

issa said...

Landmark! Grab it! KVA's sleeves are wide..

monsieur AG said...

I am really broke...can't think of anyway to fund it :(

monsieur AG said...

can u give me the reference code? Maybe i will buy it...by the way, can u ask your sales associate to reserve it for me?

issa said...

7E3540005002. i think it's not possible to reserve it, since i saw 3 ppl try on the 46 when i was trying my 44, of coz i keep it in the changing room and not letting anyone touch mine. and it's not allowed to keep clothes on sale, in fact. The associate needed me to come to shop at the same day when I called him, even i'm his big spending one...and i was afraid it will be bought by someone, so i ran to the shop, LOL~

I tried the belt one first ( I wanted to try the my favorite lastly..), the fit was very very good, sleeves are so fitted. Then I tried my biker, when i tuck my arm in, i talked to myself, "damn, I finally found it!" The sleeves are so tight! I have skinny arms, so i'm always suffer from finding a fitted sleeves jackets. I looked at the mirror, my god...it just looked so so so great, i can't express my feeling, but i was so exciting.

I came out from the fitting room, my friend and the sales associate both said it was so so beautiful. I hadn't decided for long to take it or not, I even didn't have to think. I must had to take it. It's so difficult to find a 2nd skin like this.

I would give up my 07AW leather if I have to make a choice.

monsieur AG said...

haha...i am happy for you that you've found a wonderful jacket...i guess i would give the size 46 a miss. I had always regretted buying a 46. Furthermore, i had a leather jacket from SS07 and the size was 46...which is not really fitted for me...

If its a 44...i would really think hard...anyway, good choice there...

(do u mind taking a picture of you wearing it?)

issa said...

how can i send you?

issa said...

sent to your email already!

monsieur AG said...

i've received it! Thanks alot. By the way, the jacket fits perfectly on you...

issa said...

Thanks. As i said, it's so tight. u can see the sleeves are so skinny. But due to the camera distortion, the fit is a lot better in real.

monsieur AG said...

yaah i agree. Can u confirm that there is no more size 44? I want it so badly...
