you guys kill me, margiela has been (figuratively) dead for years and those 5 zips are so boxy they look like shit on 99% of purchasers.

Yeah, this is what I had to do. Black 5 Zips in a size 50 never make it to discounted price so I just bit the bullet and copped at full price. To MMM's credit, it's an amazing jacket and probably the favorite piece of clothing I own.

is it possible to swap the black zippers to silver or gunmetal zippers in a 5 zip? It's pretty rare for me to obtain 5 zip size 44 my size in silver/gunmetal zippers.

okay here is that jacket above, probably wouldnt wear with indigo denim usually but that is what I had on at the time for fit pic

I will probably ask for input when the margiela arrives on Monday, so I am just going to wear out my welcome for a while with self indulgent posts....

There is a size 46 Margiela on Yoox for $850, just sayin'.

 

I have the same one in 52. It's horsehide, smooth when new but turns grainy like real horsehide. Colour turns from dark pink to burgundy. No underarm slits like usual 5-zips, fits slim and shortish, big shoulders.

 

(only in Aus Yoox)

 Hey man. I was being a bit sarcastic. I have love/hate relationship with this country and I tend to be bashing it from time to time. It has 3rd world mentality and 3rd world government (to be brief, and not to go into many details). And yes, Moscow is probably one of the most expensive cities in the world. That sucks though, doesn't it? redface.gif

Those RO and MMM talk are hilarious.

Only one I've owned. Considering selling it now.. but I'm quite attached to it.

 

I just noticed the pen marks as I was snapping these pictures. I'm a little sad about it, although there's a reason I never knew it was there, in 3 years.. it's well inside the breast pocket.

Got to say, that doesn't look too good. The jacket looks way too cropped and I think the ribbing in the bottom being so wide (or just the ribbing itself?) makes it look shorter that it really is. Might look better worn open but I'd just return it.
