black jutneck and brown intarsia are now dried after washing them

they look a lot better as they are now more matte looking than before and they both drape better

Also, buy my jackets.

1. havent checked yjp in forever, but i watched vintage 5 zips in various shades of grey, black, and brown go from 600-900 USD for like a year. i paid about 700 for mine, after proxy fees. forget the buy it nows, you gotta wait for a good one to pop up in an auction listing, i guarantee you they arent climbing over 100,000 yen right now, and theyll only touch that if theyre size 44, black, soft lambskin, and in superb condition.

2 edit:. nvm, dont wanna advestise here and it wont fit you anyway

good black ones in 44-48 are about $2000 or more, he is right. With the exchange rate and proxy fees that might be closer to $3000.

all i did with these jackets was submerge them in warm water for 15 minutes, threw in the the washing machine on spin cycle for 3 minutes just to get rid of excess water

no harm to the jacket at all

but heavily treated/distressed leathers might react differently

That jacket in the yahoo auction should look like mine, but it looks like somebody washed that thing heavily, multiple times, possibly with chemicals. That jacket is the poster child for the anti-washed leather jacket movement that I am beginning now.

Impolyt is correct. And if you'd like to test your theory, I'll link you to the sz 44 black auction in which I'm 40k yen over the start price and well above 100k yen and still haven't hit the minimum bid requirement. I wish I'd been looking when they were going for $700 in some bizarro world.

I lost a grey size 52 a few weeks ago that ended at 580$
post #4093 of 11503
size 52 would be huge on you I think. You could even wear a size 48 (kind of a tight fit) if it's the older pattern, I think, Synth.

I'm gonna grab a replacement black 46 off yahoo soon though, cuz mine is beat to shreds and it's the only thing I wear.
post #4095 of 11503
Good luck - 44 black is rare and overpriced but I can't recall seeing 46 black.

And I saw that washed one on my hunt and laaaaaffed.
