The Aktam Tee from allsaints is a typical lightweight jersey from allsaints that hass been washed to give a typical soft hand feel.

The print is sprayed on so no worries when ironing which youll have to do a lot as with all their tees. The cut collar is ok, not something I'd wear on its own as I think it looks kinda girly but it looks great layered like with a blazer, check out the what diesel are you wearing thread for an example.

Which size is that?

And how long is the tee?

It's a little longer than diesel tees. A little more oversized in the body but more fitted on the sleeve. They kinda go for that oversized look. Great for layering. It's a size medium. Same as my diesel size.

The Ridge Jumper is a chunky wool knit thats super soft with waffle-type texture and its so warm and comfortable. Allsaints has some amazing knitwear this season and I love this seasons signature colour, oxflood. Goes well with the grey, black and indigo jeans that are dominating this seasons denim. Layer with leather jackets and/or wool trench jackets.

Got a couple of bits recently, First the Bloomsbury Denim Jacket.

I'd like to say a couple of things about this, I've been toying with the idea of a denim jacket for a while but I wanted to wait for the right one so I picked this up on a whim and I'm very impressed with it. If this is the quality of allsaints denim then I think I might grab myself a pair of the Blythe Cigarette Jeans. The denim is quite different to diesel as these feel proper vintage the wear is more natural looking. Thick heavy denim with that is also soft like its well worn. Its washed out indigo but still maintains its darkness. Its also my first japanese selvedge denim. Nice.

Also my friends all clubbed together for my 30th birthday and got me the Tricky Leather Jacket, I loved this but it was shockin expensive so I was shocked when they presented me with it.

Its the nicest leather jacket I've ever owned , Napa Lamb Leather which has been washed and oiled to give a brilliant vintage look. Very soft leather which hangs easily and is slightly waxy to the touch.

I'm not into denim jacket but I'm curious to see fit pics of both of your jackets.

 

The leather on your jacket reminds me the one of my Diesel Laderry. Lamp leather is one the softest  ;)

I'll be wearing both over the weekend and I'll take some fit pics, both fit really well the denim jacket is perfectly fitted for layering.

Phukette, do you know Lyle & Scott?

post #91 of 539

phukette, I think you should size down the as leather, that don't fit you well on the sleeves, I saw that leather jacket in store and it's probably the best all saints leather jacket ths year

Timeout, I'm inclined to agree with you on that point. I thought the same as I like my leathers fitted like my other allsaints leather jacket so I asked my fiancé to see what she thinks and she said it looks fine and ill need the extra room for the chunky winter knitwear but this leather is quite soft and will relax over time and I don't think it'll be nice when winter is over so I think I'll send it back and get a small. I just needed the push to do so.
@zaza, I have heard of them and seen a few bits in my local department store but I wouldn't be massively familiar with the brand. Why do you ask?

Some impressions of the Apex Coat...

 

A couple of months ago, I walked into the Allsaints store and saw this displayed on a mannequin. It was a Big Wow - just stopped me in my tracks.

 

It's simultaneously smart and rock & roll. It's just a great blend without going too far in either direction.

 

For example, the quality of the material is apparent and it's got pick stitching along the pockets and lapels. But the peak lapels aren't so sharply defined as to make it too formal. And the cut isn't too aggressive (like some of Diesel's overcoats) but it's got a definite edge to it. A nice touch is the peaks on the lapels are tethered by thread (I suppose you can snip it) that seems to keep them in line when you flip the collar up.

 

And the material is gorgeous-- Allsaints' rich ink color. Very soft and felty. Good stuff.

 

So, here are a couple of different looks, from smart to casual:

 

Over a full suit--

Over shirt and trousers--

Casual--
