That's your opinion and I respect that. Personally, I find a lot of things overpriced that others gladly provide the demand for, so it is safe to say that value is in the eye of the beholder..

I have a few...brad jacket (non jcrap version), new marten blazer, etc... They are well worth the price. Can wear em in the rain all day too as most belstaffs are scotch guarded in the tanning process

$115, 000 ............Even if you're Bill Gates.......why would you do such a thing?

1 good Belstaff jacket is well worth the price.....the old price. I'm selling some of mine (I have 6) at reasonable prices. Sites like these or Ebay are where you need to get them. They go for around half of retail. Never pay full price for anything...ever....

No. not worth it. I have an old Barbour and old Belstaff - neither are really worth the current amounts they go for. The barbour is a lot closer, but the Belstaff is no better made and I think I should sell it looking at the silly prices at the mo tbh.

I am oftentimes dumbstruck when brands get a new lease on life after new ownership. Belstaff produced moto jackets before that costed <1000$ for leather and less for their quilted ones and now with new designers and owners, they are 2400$.

Check out The Real McCoy for leather jackets. Belstaff is absurdly overpriced.

I just got a Belstaff Cougar in perfect condition on here for $600. For a jacket that will last you forever, 600 is worth it...but full price is not.

Dude, you overpaid. All that eye of the beholder stuff is... well, you know.

I think the only thing that matters is whether or not I feel I got value for what I paid. I do, so by definition, I could not have overpaid right?

Well I'm sure there are lots of $75 Gucci tee shirt wearers out there who feel exactly the same way, so you're in good company.

cheers

If they're genuinely made in the UK, maybe. But if it say's "Imported" definitely not, you may want to look somewhere else, and be careful about the price.

Just picked up 3 from the Belstaff sale (through their web site) at about $1k each. Two for me and one for the wife. Free returns if they do not work out.
