Get a leather when you have more disposable income or buy one off b&s

ahh well, I wouldn't have the full leather until its colder anyways

well I have a girlfriend and she's trying to save her money as well so its not really a problem. I cut pretty much all spending to buy my toj0 and it wasn't really a problem

I agree it could be tricky. question comes down to footwear. With the black jeans, I'd start with black or white shoes and black, white, or tan boots and probably then stick to white shirts. Maybe not even the black stuff. I'm sure there are more adventurous options. Use some color wheel theory.

Totally agree

If you buy a jacket that fits you at 17, it is very likely not to fit you once you're in your early/mid-twenties.

insight would be appreciated.

doing the math: I make approx. $560 a month - $207 in fees makes $353 a month but food and gas tears off a big chunk of that (my car only gets 20mpg and I drive quite a bit, its about 15 miles to get to work, and i work three days a week).

I have $45 plus $140 (bass and amp) plus $250ish(if I sell the toj0) makes $435.

$780-$435 is $345 which I could earn in two months probably.

oh and totally forgot I'm getting $50 tomorrow so thats $295 to be earned.

so yeah sorry for the rambling, im sort of thinking as I write. so should I sell my toj0 and save up for a full leather model? alternatives to spend my money would be: blowing it on food (yeah, bad idea), smaller fashion purchases, subwoofers for my car (probably also a bad idea) or a mountain bike.

Whatever you do, it can't be as bad as what I did. I bought a motorcycle and then moved away for university (where I can't ride it).

unless there's a jacket model that you like a LOT and would regret going without, id probably just keep the toj0. I still regret passing on the old qbcdr because I thought I was still growing.

i'm going on 23 and weight the same as when i was 17

As a person similarly aged, this page concerns me.
post #30954 of 45105
I wish I weighed as much as I did at 17... 5 years of college did a number on my body. Now trying to get back down to the size I was then and it won't be as easy since I don't have soccer two a days to keep me in shape.

However, for the most part, only at my fattest (30 pounds heavier) was I unable to fit into the shirts (and casual jackets) I wore then. Obviously nothing fits nearly as well considering I'm not in nearly as good shape, but I could still wear just about everything.
post #30955 of 45105
My body has changed a lot since I was 17, not just weight wise either. My shoulders and chest are a lot broader and I may have even grown another inch or so...
post #30956 of 45105
It's rare for someone to stay their 17-year-old weight through their 20s, but I've seen it done. I would say it's abnormal but not impossible.

With that said, I'd say spend that on experiences, not objects.
post #30957 of 45105
well thanks for the input everybody. I'm selling my cps now too so I could have the money in two weeks if I sold my toj0. I've also wanted a toj leather pretty much since I've gotten into fashion, about two years ago. that said, would you guys still advise against it?

I could buy the jacket and still have enough money for "experiences" whatever that entails.

The jacket costs more than you make in a month...

$45(I have) plus $140(bass and amp) plus $50(helping my mom) plus $120(cps) plus $300(toj0) is $655, leaving only $125 to be earned which I can make in a week easy. I'm aware of what I have, what I have to potential to get easily, and what the jacket I want costs, thank you
