Wont happen, I didnt use black polish but a professional dye solution (teinture française by Saphir).

My pics are reaaaally terrible. Will try to take better ones by daylight (it's night time here, had to use flash).

im just sad that the red 5 zip is no more
seems cruel :'(

much prefer the red to the black.

Ha ! I have nothing against red, I just didnt like that particular red (which was more a soft burgundy). Also the treatment was too bland for my taste.

Blood red would have been nice though.

Johan, why did you decide to darken the red jacket as opposed to a different color? Iirc, the red jacket was $1k+. If the purpose was to dye it, wouldn't another, cheaper jacket have worked and been cheaper?

Looks bad imo. The YKK zippers have 100% polyester taping which is colorfast for almost all intents and purposes, and must be dyed in a vat over heat on their own, before manufacture. This differs from other zipper brands like Riri. One is not better than the other, but yeah, that zipper taping on the red MMM is always going to be red tape peeking out from a black jacket, which I think looks bad.

I personally think it looks good Johan, but the black just seems so "common" for this jacket.

 

But still you got balls! and nicely done

 

Weird though, why does your one look so boxy? my one tapers in like how all the new 5 zips should.

lol what a mistake
post #7285 of 11015
I think the jacket looks nice, especially the zippers. 5 zips don´t have shoulder gussets, right?
post #7286 of 11015

the dye job was good, but the zippers would've looked much better on the original jacket - the red/purple zipper taping throws off the contrast in a bad way..

post #7287 of 11015
Maybe a sharpie could fix it
post #7288 of 11015
Ouch! I think the original color was much better.

That being said? What is up with MMM using cheap zippers?
post #7289 of 11015
They're not cheap. -_- I defer to styleforum's zipper experts, though....

Zips on that mmm jacket are pretty nice
