Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 106

I assumed he was talking about someone who could make a custom knock-off.

There was actually a CCP fencing on SZ classifieds recently for like 600 bucks that someone for some reason had added 2 additional zippers to after the fact. Makes me wonder why you'd buy something like that only to hack it up. It still looked great (tempting), just would've been better stock.

that guy destroyed that jacket for no good reason. ever see the guy on sufu who bedazzled a julius jacket?

"Destroyed" seems to be a bit of an overstatement; it still looks good (I would happily wear it) it's just a more or less inexplicable choice on the part of whoever did it.

Re Julius: No but that is hilarious and perhaps the best troll I have heard of in some time.

There's a crazy german dude that wears a lot of Carpe and CCP and he gets all his pieces custom altered to be covered with chrome hearts jewellery. The end result is horrifying.

It wasn't the same guy who bedazzled "daft punk" on the back of his leather as a halloween costume was it?

I'm the owner of the 'bastardized CCP' fencing. CCP made various versions of the fencing - one with a single side zipper and the other with two side zippers. The pic posted above is a re-issue of the single that CCP did in 2007. In the version I have, one of the previous owners of the version (started out as 2 side zips) chose to add a 3rd zipper down the middle. Think of a Margiela 3 zipper jacket that he re-issues every year.

Yeah I think it's still workable, but maybe I just have poor taste. Was thinking about buying it, but that it wouldn't fit nixed that idea. I do think the single zip is the best looking of the bunch, but it's generally not 600 dollars

I have the said MMM 3 zipper jacket, and was pondering yours, since a black leather is definitely on my want list and yours is my size. I just prefer the single zip version, that's all.

Not shilling, but my Good Wear leather jacket is the best I've seen in person or owned. Made by one person in Seattle. Amazing quality.

$250 for a zipper is a bit excessive.
