Pretty sure seller is legit but that leather is a bit ehh
It's very heavy and a bit of an a traditional fit. Not a comfy jacket, I wouldn't wear Carpe boots on my chest
If you want thick, beat-up leather, though, by all means go for it

MH can't even sell out their RO leathers at ~$500 brand new.

thanks for the fb, I was kinda thinking about it since measurements are in my range and it seemed cheap for what it is but also thought there had to be more to it and hence why it hadnt sold yet, also pics on re-porter make it look dry and not too pliable which is not my cup of tea

Indeed the price is pretty good. I think it could be very nice. But I'm not sure if it's exactly the same jacket as in re-porter pictures? I'd love to see some regular fit pics. Seller said color is greenish black.

I love several of the styles, but I was hoping to get an understanding of just how much variance there is in the quality. $5k is indeed a huge purchase and not one I'd ever make unless I was in love with the jacket, I was just hoping to hear "rick owens veterans" thoughts on it compared to previous seasons. 

 

What really confuses me is the huge variance in RO leathers... some are well regarded and are in the $2.5k price range while some in the $5k range seem to be strongly disliked. Are the $5K ones "experimental/runway" offerings compared to the others?

 

I'll check out superfuture, but what is sz? 

 

Abraxis gave you a really good answer, but I'd also say to focus on the leathers that you see Rick wearing unless you really find something you love - the stooges, intarsia, bauhaus, and maybe one other. They're good designs and he's been releasing them every season for a reason.  For the most part you probably don't want the bastardized versions of these with cashmere liners or hoods or whatever.

Yeah i haven't transacted with septseptsept before but he's posts regularly on sz so he's not just a classifieds lurker... I'd expect him to deal fairly. If that jacket fit me I'd have bought it by now.

It's probably still there since the design isn't super mindblowing... honestly most cd clothing isn't that interesting to me personally and I own a few pieces. The only stuff I really drool over other than the footwear is the laser cut leather jacket/pants. That said if I were to get another non-laser cut leather clothing piece from him it'd be that one you are talking about. The jacket might almost look repro in cut/design/wear, but the leather seems ridiculously awesome. But I like thick/armor like leather smile.gif

Honestly... I really like attachment leathers. Fit me great and use great leather. Clean design etc. They have more heavily designed ones too that are probably also great, but shrug. I'm definitely a low neck/moto collar guy though. CCP high neck is about as high as I'd ever consider and it's not that high compared to the jacket eckblk is getting or a rick owens high neck.. or julius jutneck

I have two that are basically this design. One of them has moto-ish zip pockets on chest and for hands and is fully lined, but basically same cut. 8x/10 I wear the lined jacket out of like the 8(? I don't even know) leathers I own (includes 3 ccp).

I almost convinced myself to get that womens ccp from sz but somehow managed to talk myself out of it and I'm glad I did

my current grail is probably the ma+ moto but I cannot deal with those sleeves, I'm just too damn short and would need to tailor them which seems like a crime on such an expensive piece, so lately I've been looking more at some other brands that are rather new to me like rip, incarnation, backlash, etc, even considering going custom and definitely considering the upcoming sf x vanson x tb moto but also trying to learn more as I go along, I mean I'll lurk sz for a while but the petty catfights are so damn annoying

I received my brown Himel Canuck a few weeks ago.  It is the antithesis of RO/CCP and, therefore, not favored by this forum.  Nevertheless:

Raw edged? you mean unfinished? don't think sooo but may be sometimes unfinished and sometimes finished. Yeah i think he produces that model in variety of colors/leathers every season with slight detail variations. It's just a great clean design with a great fit (Though some say its loose in the stomach region) made from great leather with riri zippers (Way better than Rick Owens, Julius and CCP zippers).

Yeah that layer 0 leather is great, but the used market is much smaller and retail is not cheap, but not ccp crazy. Where for awhile attachment has been around longer and there's more out there in the wild. It had less hype than julius so where a julius leather would be 1k+ you could find attachment for 600-800 pretty easily in new or lightly used condition.

Nowadays it feels more popular than Julius, but maybe only marginally. Not sure how that's affected prices.
