Your best bet is probably to keep an eye out on eBay... not sure if I've ever seen any black 5-zips in the more common sizes make it to sale at any online retailer.

 

Yea, ebay had a black 48 sell for $700 I let go because it was summer, and a dude offered me $600 for a black 50 but scared it might not fit.

What kind of leather is this? (I see that it is calf, but the texture looks interesting)

I bought this leather from a euro e-store and returned it - it's a very thin leather (lamb I believe) with a rubberized coating that gives it the matte look. Doesn't have the leather feel or creasing, but the matte look and cut is nice. Just not $1k+ nice..

Probably around 4 months of solid wear.

Thanks dudes. I'm sure there are other members here with much more impressive collections than mine, but I'm content with what I have (after tracking these down over the last 2 years) :nodding: Still looking for that grail oiled calf Intarsia, although having so many black leathers is redundant (and expensive)

Not sure that it will fit either of you, it's a size 48 (fits a half-size small). Besides, that one is probably my favourite of the lot - it'll probably be the last to go :devil: (highly recommended if you guys ever come across it)

spacepope: Check Rakuten or y!jp, I actually saw the same horse rider in Size 50 in a used clothing shop (Kind-U) in Tokyo a couple of weeks ago. I think it was somewhere in the ballpark of 130,000 yen which is a pretty reasonable price considering retail is something like $4,000. They might still have it listed online :)

Is the TOJ black as well? I've decided I need to not buy anything else until I save up for either a 5 zip or intarsia
