Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 744

post #11146 of 12255
Not biased, I check it almost every season and there is a good 2-3 seasons there where the prices were dropping but so were the quality, I think Intarsia even dropped to around $1500-$1800 retail? 2-3 years ago used ones were almost a bargain at $1500 iirc. They've always had some outrageously price pieces every season though, shearlings almost always start at $5k+, though last falls might have started at about $4k? And who could forget the $50k SSense gators.

Looking at current season stooges that retail at $2500, it does seem like quality is the big difference, it looks like plastic and I'll gladly pay an extra $500 to get the other one I posted.

I don't think the price correlates all that much with 'quality' depending on how you define it. My rick retailed in the low $2000's and it's pretty thick washed lamb, at least as nice as the other jackets I've handled from various brands (other ricks / dior / SLP), some that were much more expensive.  I think certain treatments just tend to be cheaper.  Also my jacket is comparatively simple in terms of hardware, there's just a front zip, two slash pockets and zip cuffs (and the internal pockets), where a stooges would have 3 extra zip pockets, a coin pocket, and epaulets which might raise the price? I dono.

Anyone handled the current mmm navy 5 zip by any chance, I only saw like two posts about it a while back.

 

Hows the quality? I read somewhere someone said it was poo.... it be true?

@RFX45 how long ago did you post the full grain stooges? I scrolled a few pages and didn't see it

Just a page back, very top jacket of that post. I think it's actually the last post of the last page.

So the FW 2014 RO stooges is cashmere lined and only $2500? Is it made in Moldavia or somewhere weird?

The thick leather does look a thousand times better. M

no sorry the 4-5k ones are cashmere lined. the 2500 ones are just better leather and made in italy i would gather
post #11157 of 12255
Is there a high neck intarsia and/or bauhaus with the better leather for FW2014?
post #11158 of 12255

The intarsia and bauhaus are both shearling lined for fw14, at least the pre-collection (rickowens.eu)
