Should I buy this 5-zip @NAMOR is selling?


I'd probably replace the zippers with m8 riri

 

Hard to judge 5-zip quality through pics tho

Lol why would you replace brand new zippers. YOu talking crazy. The jackets is thick and substantial def a f/w piece. I was hard pressed to find any differences between the made I Italy and made in Romania jackets

I have a zipper fetish from playing too many JRPGs.

ill do $700 for that jacket if you pay today. thats a bar tab right chyearr
post #11945 of 17209
Thats a great deal for the jacket, dont fuck it up by adding different zippers. All of the 5-zip jackets ive handled, from all origins have had substantial zippers.

I think this is spot on. In one sense it's nice cus with $1800 you can very likely get what you want but I don't think there's a clear option here other than to lurk and lurk and lurk and find out what you really like, even if at first glance it seems they're all 'moto' styles so they're similar the range of these jackets are significantly different.

I get that leather jacket season is about to be upon us so you want to make a purchase but unless $1800 is a trivial amount to you (it might be idk) I'd urge you to wait and sort of find the nitty gritty details on all those jackets and just sort of keep looking at jackets in general and what you like. This thread especially the last hundred pages or so has a lot of cool jackets but also, even though 800+ pages of 50 comments is daunting the ToJ thread can provide a lot of inspiration or at least a ton of jackets for you to discern what you like best, and before 2014 Drew actually had a lot of nice insight to a lot of the fit pics which can sort of shape what you see from the perspective of a designer.

I only have one leather jacket (hope to own more) and I never get tired of reading or talking about them

I was thinking of replacing zippers on 5-zips with shiny ones, although it might be hard to find suitable ones. That jacket will fit a true XL, and you'll need huge shoulders to fit or relatively small ones for the dropped shoulder effect.

The chest measurement is right for me but I usually wear 18.5" shoulder to shoulder jackets.

 

I've never tried on 5-zips before so I'm a bit wary of teh fit.

i felt that 5zip fits a bit big

5 zips have a dropped shoulder wouldnt pay attention to that measurement 18.5 would probably be like a 46

could you elaborate on the dropped shoulder? i think i know what you mean. are you referring to the slope of the shoulder line?
post #11952 of 17209
I just mean that the intended fit has the shoulder seam hitting lower. The shoulders will measure out to be bigger than what you'll expect in relation to the tagged size and chest but it's just how its designed

yes that is a good point. the shoulder measurements on 5zips always look a little big

its a biker jacket, the extra should width gives more mobility allows wearer to lean forward with hands in front of them. It also should hit right above belt line so leaning forward doesn't cause a unnecessary bunching at the hem on a bike.

nobody's wearing a 5-zip on a bike
