Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 624

I hate to break it to you but TOJ isn't the be-all and end-all of leather jackets. Do they represent huge value? Yes. But so does Hyundai, and I don't see people NOT buying BMW's and Mercedes because they can buy another car with the same features at 1/3 of the price.

This is a silly analogy.  A BMW engine and a Hyundai engine aren't even close to being in the same realm and you can't buy a Hyundai with anything close to BMW engineering.  

 

Explain to me how a $5,000 SLP leather is like a BMW and a TOJ is like a Hyundai.  Is the leather $4K nicer?  Is the construction $4K nicer?  

 

Please enlighten us.

god guys you know for a 5k you can get a motorcycle and that's much cooler than wearing a 5k jacket.

it makes you feel nicer because it's a name called saint laurent. but you don't need to buy it.

it's not priced for the vast. A SLP not necessary better than TOJ, but less people can afford it so it makes you feel better.

But I'm not a big fan of belts on leather to begin with, though I'm sure that's blasphemy to some.

I like belt around waist line but I want the buckle to be covered w leather. A metal buckle will scratch gas tank/air box.

Really want a biker jacket. I'm in love with the Saint Laurent one, handled it in person the first time some days ago and it feels very awesome. I think there is a pretty fine line between jackets that are just "too authentic motorcycle-like" (if that makes sense) and those fashion jackets who just try to hard with too much details or weird cuts. The SLP one really is perfection for me, however, not feeling the price tag, I could get 2 5zips for that, meh :/


Main thing to note about these 2 jackets is that they are pretty common designs you can easily opt for a custom made jacket that will match the quality minus the brand name and price markup.

The cutting, leather selection, and design is pretty spot on. Ive had poor luck with mtm in the past, I have a VERY hard time imagining anybody can do a one-off that nice. Maybe if they charge 1000 per mtm leather, they can fuck up 4-5 times before you hit the actual cost. happy.gif

I don't own any, but I've really appreciated CCP lately, particularly this:

I just purchased the AW13 A1923 high neck in llama from Atelier's 50% sale and it has just sat there on the couch while I continually reach for my CCP leathers before heading out.

Funny story, I got a rick owens for free about a year a go, now, I was thinking of thrifting a perfecto style leather jacket, to add to my collection, any brands to look for besides the high end ones.

Step 1. We admitted we were powerless over jawnz—that our lives had become unmanageable.
