sigh.this isn't a debate im interested in having. i used to check yjp bi weekly, ive seen countless of the things come and go, including at least two nice vintage black ones. they did not go for significantly over 100,000 yen, and im not even positive they yet hit that mark. they just dont consistently go for anywhere near there when they hit in auction format starting at 0 yen with no reserve. what possible motivation would i have for duping you into thinking vintage 5 zips go for less than they do? i just told you, i purchased my vintage, deep brown one in size 48 in excellent condition
for slightly over 700 after fees. at the time i thought it was good deal, but nothing insane, because id watched vintage 5 zips in excellent condition go in that price range for like a year.
homie, do you even care about getting a vintage one? drew is talking about a very specific version of this jacket that came out years ago... there are countless shades of browns, tans, greys, even some nice colored versions that have come out over the years, some of which suck, but others are very nice, and even he will tell you that good condition used versions of those dont even sniff the prices being thrown about here. most of those black ones sitting at like 180k yen right now are brand new or newish, from '09 or '10 or '11, they dont even speak to this discussion. can't you find new ones discounted on ebay and yoox from time to time? what did jd may sell his fw09 brown suede one for? i know it was under a thousand.
