did this jacket get a special/extra wash? it always looks much more matte than the other washed lambskin jackets (the ones made from hides washed in drew's washing machine)
I'm still waiting to get my boots back, but the factory resole looked really messy. The stitching wasn't neat and the screws were all over the place. Some of the screws weren't even completely in the sole. The shape of the boots had changed too, they were all out of shape and not as nice as they were. I expected that a factory resole would look as good as new and be done with lots of care, but it just looked like a really rushed job.I spoke to the head repair guy at...
Yeah, "sheep" that probably say "woof". This is coming from a company that claim to have a big factory, but can't send actual photos of their jackets.With all the MMM 5 zip demand/talk, I'm surprised that no one makes a decent 1:1 rip off. I'm sure a company like Black Scissors or Stud Homme would sell heaps if they made a good copy for around $500 or less (I think Drew said that Margiela leather is cheaper than TOJ leather, and you can get cheaper zippers that look like...
yep, i'm guessing at that price the quality would be horrendous. i'm imagining #3 nylon zippers with plastic sliders and goat leather from a goat that they ate and tanned in their backyard (TOJ charges $70 just to upgrade to the excella zippers like shown in the photo)
what do you think my chances are of ordering either of these and getting anything resembling a margiela 5 zip? i'm guessing 0% chance (??) company name is either KGN Leather or Skin-Hub Leather ("indian.leather.factory" on ebay) http://www.ebay.com/itm/231020835441 http://www.ebay.com/itm/231040959375 for $120, i wouldn't mind buying a copy if it was passable quality and had the chunky #8 zippers with symmetrical teeth like the original. i emailed them asking for more...
add these http://www.ebay.com/itm/261115550251?var=560164706922

this is gonna be a long shot, but does anyone know the YKK excella zipper teeth color that margiela uses on the current 5 zips (eg. artishard's new burgundy horse one)?it's a dark, but still very shiny silver (not dull gunmetal and not bright shiny regular silver).color codes I have are P, C5 (I think these are both bright shiny silver), H6 (I think this is dull/matt gunmetal..not shiny enough), V6 (this might be it, it's called Black Nickel..but looks too dark in photos...
I'm selling these Officine Creative Black Leather Side Zip Boots. Size is Euro 44 (US 11) Outside length is 12 5/8". Outside width is 4 1/8" Very good condition. Topy soles. Full leather lining.
