Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 587

post #8791 of 11837
So I received an MMM 5-zip in the mail that I won off of eBay and I'm having some doubts as to it being real or not. This seems like an appropriate thread to ask about it - if not, please direct me to another thread where it is.


It was originally beige, but was dyed a dark brown. So I'm not sure if that's the reason why it feels really weird of leather, almost pleather like. There's also no real leather smell either. Since it's calf, I know it's not supposed to feel as soft/smooth/supple as lambskin, but from what I remember compared to the calfskin black 5zip I tried on at a Barney's once, this isn't anywhere near as soft/smooth either. But again, could be due to the dye, so I'm not sure.

Would take it to a department store and ask, but there's no high end store that carries MMM here as far as I know. Was thinking perhaps a cobbler would be of some help?

Here's an Imgur album with a few pictures: http://imgur.com/a/dEeLO#sgmHzgi

I really appreciate all the help you guys can give!

if it's not real, it's a damn good fake. all the mmm stuff (staff international tag, the way the logo is stitched, etc) is present, and the "innards" look exactly like a 5-zip i handled a while ago

@Julien - there are no holes.

Thanks for making me feel at ease, guys. Seems the dyeing just messed with the texture a bit. Was thinking about dyeing over it with black though.

How do you even die a leather jacket, do you do it yourself?

 

Also, has anyone made alterations to a leather jacket, and know of a place online I could send one?

 

What type of leather and season is this jacket from?

I've got this same jacket, it's calf and I believe it's last year's version.

Hows it fit seems to run small for the size?

I'm 5'11 with a 39 in. chest and the size 50 fits me perfectly.  Lengths are great for both the body and the sleeves and the sleeves aren't too baggy like they were for that guy a couple pages back.
