not a fan of that denim 5-zip on the mannequin, maybe a fit could change my opinion

I decided I'd buy them if I got them under £300, and with a 10% off code (VALENTINE) it goes to £280 or something, so I figured why not.

Kingjulien (i think?) posted a fit with one, silhouette was really good, way better than I thought it would be. I'm really not a fan of denim jackets in a non-trucker style though.

Yeah that was me.  I like it but still have to shorten the sleeves which might be a bitch given the zippers.

 

Glad that worked out Reedo

what size did you get reedo? I'd love to find one of the canvas/non leather 5 zips, but it's such a pain to search for them on eBay/Y!/Rakuten with all of the H&MxMMM stuff everywhere.

I agree with mikey; post a fit so we can eviscerate/worship you

5 zips are too awesome...

This is exactly what I had my eye on...but I was afraid to pull the trigger because I don't know Individual Sentiments' sizing. What size did you get?

Regarding shortening sleeves, you could try asking a tailor for a cut-job.
Basically means he will cut out the zipper and some of the fabric around it from the sleeve, then shorten the sleeve, and lastly sew the zipper-piece(with fabric still attached to it) on again.

i'm generally underwhelmed by how they look in photos, never seen one in person tho

(and yes obviously drew is an exception)

At risk of sounding like I'm always bullying reedo, I'm bummed out that he got that.

 

It's another case of settling for a cheaper version of something that is not quite what he wanted.  A few weeks ago he mentioned wanting either a TOJ BBall or some Undercover leather.

 

Instead of one of those he got a reversible varsity and a denim 5-zip, which I'm sorry but will never be close to as cool as a proper leather version.

 

You can do better than this Reedo!!  I thought you were starting to get a clear idea of where you wanted to take your style but instead you have 2 pieces that aren't what you were actually lusting after.

I think he can just shorten the zipper, but I'm not sure.  I'm really wary of tailors.  The last time I had something altered (a blazer) the buttons were sewn straight into the lining uhoh.gif

How much do the leather 5 zips usually go for off B&S/Y! Japan etc ?

post #32969 of 46943
It always boils down to varsities and (5) zippers...

Didn't know you could do that, that would obviously be easier than my suggestion blush.gif
