Come on now, the comment in discussion is a bit out of the ordinary for you. We chat about leathers on a regular basis and you give some good info that at least i find interesting.

I have never noticed you being one before this though, which was why I got surprised you wrote something like that as response to a totally fine post with a good suggestion for anyone in the market.

If you have suddenly decided that you want to be viewed as an asshole on this forum though, well good for you I guess.

It's kind of goofy. Wonder if you can order without logo?

And it's easy to say they're better made than the stuff you might find at H&M, for example.

It's just the nitpicking, in-between stuff that I question. Like when someone tries to say whether Edward Green is better than Lobb, or Brooks Brothers suits better than Ralph Lauren, or Margiela better than Saint Laurent. I just don't think it's easy for a consumer to tell the differences in quality between those things, assuming they even exist (in a meaningful way). And even if they do, I think design trumps any marginal benefit you might get in quality or construction.

Pretty much, I look at the Cabourn jacket I have and it is obviously better made than say a Margiela jacket. However between a Margiela, a YSL and a Schneider I can't really tell and certainly don't care. Certain items just have that surplus that gives them something more when it comes to quality (like Green or Cabourn or whatever), fashion brands being mostly interchangeable, being interesting for other reasons.

Of course quality is like any other aspect, it is all about this:

I'm not exactly sure why fuuma is of the opinion he is, but when I checked out one of their stores in london it didn't seem worse than any other similarly-priced brand.
Jacket looks good imo.

Kooples is really derivative average quality stuff.

The designs are clean and quality is not bad from what I've observed irl.

ya I was looking for a simple derivative slimmer fitting shearling jacket for everyday use in the fall, probably not a good thing to say on SF lol. So good to hear that it is ok quality.
