Kindly share your opinion on this jaket?
« on: Mar 31, 2011, 13:22:01 »
So who has one of these jackets from UltimoFashionsUk? (http://www.ultimofashions.com/)



Here's what I'd like to believe:

If I pay about $165 shipped for the jacket with the extra options included for 1.) cowhide 2.) CE armor, and 3.) custom tailoring to fit me perfectly, I'll be getting a good quality, double-stitched riding jacket with the functionality of a new Fieldsheer / Joe Rocket / Iconn, etc., for about half of what they cost, and with decent vintage aesthetics.

That seems too good to be true.

Opinions?  Reviews from actual owners?

Wow, sounds almost too good to be true.

Ive never seen one in person, but a sub $200 tailored, cowhide, armored jacket seems way to good to be true. A nice proper riding jacket with the same specs is usually about $100 more than that if not higher. Could just be a good deal though. Also, I noticed that it doesnt say what type/thickness cowhide they use. A shady prick could say cowhide and simply use cheap leather...

Yeah, absolutely. If I pull the trigger on it, I'll do an in-depth review. I'm going to contact them first about the thickness of the cowhide. Any other questions yall would want to know if I can get the distro on the horn?

keep in mind that shipping from the UK to America is usually about 25-35 pounds.. basically factor in $40-$50 for shipping, not $10 like you are assuming...

yeah.. go for it and let us know!!...

Better yet, tell the seller that you are one member of a 10000+ forum and would like to do a test/review of their jacket, which you'll promote to all the members, if they send you a free sample for you to QA... and you wont even charge them for all the work and write up... they can consider it FREE advertising and promotion to a 10000 person captive market!!..

the shipping quote says 5.99 BP expedited international.

I dunno man, 165$ for a custom tailored armored cowhide jacket? something has to be up, the materials alone would be around 100$(+) and if theyre eating it on shipping theres no way they can be making money on this.


conversely; who cares, look at this.

I snagged the jacket via ebay BIN on the 5th. I chose the cowhide & CE armor options on a size 42/Med for a total of $152.29.

I've talked with someone from Ultimo about the review i am planning to do of the jacket in this thread, (which will be the only online review of their products so far, to my knowledge). I sent him a link to the thread. He took a look at it and assured me that we would all be amazed at the quality of the jacket. He said someone from the factory would either be getting in touch with me or would post here directly about the construction process. These guys have some cool designs already, and apparently have the ability to do custom stuff too. If the quality is right there could be some real potential. I look forward to finding out.
