Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 549

post #8221 of 11026
can't speak about the quality of earlier versions, but i have the one pictured above and as DLester says the leather is very nice: thick supple calf that will definitely wear well. not cheap at retail but this seemed to be the best iteration i was likely to find.

^I'm Confused......but what : /

 

The 5 zip "craze" has been around since the dawn of time from what I understand now, like years agoooooooooooooooo, I am sure maybe even before those two snapped one up, like when dinosaurs roamed the earth and shiz

 

After actually learning my lesson and purchasing one (and comparing it to other jackets), I have to admit, I think the 5 zip is one of the most easiest leathers to pull off comparatively to other "higher end" designers.

 

Very forgiving as well for the "older/mature" male as well I would say, as the body is quite forgiving and it's somewhat simple design makes it maybe... timeless.

The actual fall/winter 2013 MMM 5 zip in black ? calf leather ? made in italy tag ? this one ? frown.gif


the one i tired on looked exactly the same but i was pressed for time and did not notice the deets. moo and i discussed the thin leather and he thinks it may be a summer leather. Although i think it is possible for barneys to start stocking FW item right now.

no but even for lamb it felt like crap. i had a similar situation when i looked at a hugo boss leather that was really thin and cost around 1k so i asked the SA if it was faux and he said it was lamb. IDK what these brands are using for lamb lately but it feels cheap

Some people appreciate design more than quality. Therefore TOJ and 5-zip won't be the same.

This is riveting, sorry to interrupt.

5-zip showed up. Fit is pretty spot on I'd say. Love the color, leather isn't super thick but feels very sturdy. If you're in between sizes, go up. These new ones seem to be wide in the shoulders with aggressive taper (perfect for me). Went with a 46 for reference.
Sorry for the weird angle:

Back pic is unzipped which is why it looks loose

depends on the year. The leather on black one last page and the red one looks fine. I've handled this summer's White 5 zip and last winter's distressed black 5 zip. Have to say, the leather quality is not good.

Quality on my white 5zip is pretty nice, it actually looks similar to arts with hos stiff it looks, it also billows out in the chest area like his because it still stiff.

I also tried on the 5zip that is at Barneys stores now, the one that feels like washed lamb and I find the quality to be nice as well. I found it pretty heavy for what it is, I liked it. If i had a room for another black leather, i'd seriously consider it because the fit was so good, it drapes much better than the calf I have now.

Is it worth the $3k retail price? Probably not but there really aren't many clothes out there worth the retail price anyways.

Is the white one horse too? It's not a super flattering material right out of the box but I think it will look good broken in.
post #8231 of 11026
that looks great on you art. it seems the sizing varies quite a lot from season to season because i'm a fair bit bigger than you and mine (FW13) is also a 46
post #8232 of 11026
Where did you get it from art?
post #8233 of 11026
The white 5zip is calf but it looks just about as stiff as yours. I can kind of tell where it kind of what to stay the shape it was folded in when shipped while the jacket is worn unzipped. Not sure if it's just the angle or the pic but it looks like the lower chest area kind of sticks out. It will likely take some wearing to get it to mold your body and drape better.

Damn Art, you're one sexy biatch.

That jacket's pretty sweet, nice pickup.
post #8235 of 11026
robinsongreen, the 46 he has on I measured it and has a sts of exactly 47.5, (I measured the whole thing to compare to other 5 zips) pretty much around your typical sts for the recent ones.

Yoox wzjradam.

RFX45, yea it does stick out like a pelicans chest with it zipped, that's because of the waist suppression and the jacket being so rigid. Also...forgive me if I am wrong, but this seasons 5zip isn't 3k....unless you buy from ssense, who jack up prices like no tomorrow.
