Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 630

post #9436 of 10875
Having owned and tried on numerous leathers, the 5-zip is not even close to overrated. The fit is phenomenal, the leathers can be great (depending on season and origin) and its a classic silhouette. I also prefer leather jackets without ribbing because they show age less, and the design is very minimal with large pieces of hide being used. Not to mention the price, which tends to hit 30% off most seasons making it relatively accessible for a "baller" leather jacket. That rick leather shirt/jacket is a bad trade in imo, you have to cuff the sleeves up just for it to be normal.

^Not all 5-zips were created equal.

 

Also, by darker I meant making it nearly black, with a tinge of the original red.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that's Ann D. While I agree with the comment regarding the cuffs (I don't believe those are the standard buttoned cuffs on the jacket), I think the jacket itself is very nice. I mean after all, when it comes to design, it's all subjective anyways.

 

EDIT: Do I think the trade was worth it? Personally, no. But if the jacket was more suited towards what you wear, then by all means, the trade was fine. That's what I meant when I said design's all subjective.

Of course there not all the same, thats what makes more rare of a grail cop. Everybody interested I'm sure has there preferred season of which leather or color they like the most. 

 

Ill have to agree with @Fycus that the trade of a 5-zip for a leather shirt was dumb. I could only see buying a leather shirt like that if it had high percentage mark down or if you have the money and already own a leather jacket. It dosent seem that nice, or something that can be worn enough to justify a high price.

It's not Rick and it's not really a leather shirt, it's a full blown leather jacket. Leather is pretty damn thick too and it is very nice in person, definitely much nicer and much, much thicker than the 5zip I returned. I think I have enough leather jackets with zips and moto style too. I also like that it is a bit on a looser side.

I folded the cuffs on purpose, it is extremely long. They looks like these uncuffed.

Sadly my experience with the 5zips i've tried on has been bad. i like the jacket/look but the leather is flimsy.

Yea for sure, my 5-zip leather is very thin but I actually do not mind it maybe because Ive never owned a $2000+ thick leather jacket. The only thing that can make it better is a slightly thicker leather buts thats literally the only thing, the color, cut, hardware, and fit are all the best I could ask for so the thin leather gets overlooked by me. 

 

My next leather should be soon after christmas was going to go with Zamb after that guy posted pictures of his but Zamb honestly seems like a prick and I really don't want to support a company like that. So I was talking to Albert the owner of Collateral Concepts and the guys really nice and helpful and now Im set on the jacket he makes, really nice and may even sell my 5-zip to get it sooner, ill try to resist though.

Rick Owens Sternberg looks to be supple and thicker leather, extra 20% so pretty decent price
