Burger and I took advantage of the +16 degree weather today by heading over to the Sunday Up Market off Brick Lane to do a bit of browsing.  Not only did I find a rad pair of sunglasses for only £8.00 that were very reminiscent of the Cutler and Gross pair I borrowed for fashion week, but Burger also found this super lux vintage brown pony skin jacket.  And it was only £10.00!!!  앗싸!
Fur can be tough for a guy to pull off, but pony skin is another matter entirely.  There's something rich and luxurious about it while retaining a strictly masculine edge all without coming across as too glam.  I've actually been noticing pony skin all over the runways during mens FW12 fashion weeks this season, mostly in a deep black hue.

In London, Baartmans and Siegel (left) as well as Topman Design (right) presented a bold pony skin jacket.  I especially love the biker jacket by Topman.

Elsewhere, Diesel Black Gold (left) presented handsome double breasted pony skin jackets in navy, while Emporio Armani outfitted a few of their models in wrap cardigan-like pony skin jackets.

If you can't wait until next winter to get in on the FW12 trends, I've found a few FW11 pieces that I would be very happy to have in my closet.  Sadly the Mugler Pony Skin Buckled Creepers on the left are sold out at London select shop LN-CC, but they also this Haerfest Calfskin and Fur Backpack which would be great for carrying my laptop to and from work every day.

At Oki-ni they also have a few pony skin shoes.  On the left are a pair of cherry red Dr Martens Hair on Horsey 3 Eye Derby Shoes next to a more casual pair of Diet Butcher Slim Skin High Top Sneakers.
