Value, SLP is also not be all end all of leathers. Probably made in the same factories as $2k jackets and you realize that ToJ is direct selling, so if a boutique bought them to sell they would cost double as much. It would be like buying direct from the bimmer factory...see how silly the analogy is. Also, replicating leather qualities is much easier than replicating automotive engineering. You don't pay BMW price for the BMW name its for superior engineering. Hedi is far too hedonistic to realize his name isn't enough to sell overpriced and underwhelming garments anymore. So, now his focus is to build the celeb hype...Mayweather to Justin Biebz and every classless buffoon in between.

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.
I think its just hate towards the ToJ love. I am sure charly could come and enlighten him on leathers and bimmers.
