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

Don't worry about it, any leather would look bad on you regardless

@gettoasty I run 5 miles 6-7 days a week but thanks for the consideration towards my health, and glad to see you kept my picture. :inlove:

 

...and you do realize Rick Owens is extremely skinny.

Corrected! Thank you, sir

The CC jacket is nicer, the price is more reasonable.

5 zip has a boxy fit that's it. Don't think the cut is special in any way. And leather they used looks cheap. $1350 acne looks better.

I think the 5zip is a great jacket
