One of my oldest and favourite leathers, the beaten Energie 'Rod Knockers' biker jacket. Had this for over 15 years and counting, few broken zippers and starting to show it's age, but man do I love that vintage look. There really is no substitute for good quality materials worn over time. It gives a one of a kind product which you simply can not reproduce.
Funny thing is I have been cleaning out a lot of my gear lately, and came to this and almost went and bloody sold the thing. Relieved I didn't, not only is it an awesome piece it has loads of memories embedded in it too. To be honest I don't even know if the Energie label exists anymore!
Something a bit different for me pairing it with the super slick JD Sports X Adidas Originals NMD XR1 sneakers. Chucked a red rope lace into these beauties for some BRED goodness, and it really finished them off nicely for me.
Can't seem to pick anything other than Denham the Jeanmaker denim lately, really love the comfort on these Razor NISS Stone Wash selvedge jeans and know they will get better and better with time and wear.
I guess there is something to be said for buying the best quality products you can, which will last over time. An anti-consumerist model, as ultimately we live in a world of fast food fashion nowadays and the throw away society. We can't put the genie back in the bottle but at least we can make choices about what we purchase. Unfortunately I have found that as this mindset is a minority position, it inevitably costs a lot to be able to afford to live that way. I guess the bottom line is I am relieved I lived when I did.
