@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

A lot of 5-zips on models look boxy because they are extremely skinny. Ssenses models usually have nice 5-zip pictures, but they also make $60 levi jeans look really nice.

Ann D suede rider on Barney's Warehouse for about 700 (extra 50% off). Small and XL left last I looked.

Too much 5zip hate talk, just like Ricks, the quality is a toss up from season to season.

The 5zip I just returned was very thin, it just didn't feel substantial and retail price was $2800+. However, check out the new grey one I saw at the store yesterday, it is thick and feel much more durable and retails around $2500. The white calf 5zip I have is also nice and thick and quality feels on point.

And the 5zip is cut boxy with wide shoulders but tapers but only really noticeable when you zip it up in pics.

It looks nice, but material wise it sure is. A cotton lining, and hit or miss leather at that price point? cmon :confused:

I thought body shaming on SF wasn't cool? Except when it is apparently...

Something that doesn't absorb moisture so easily, as well as easier to put on or off smoothly. Sateen, bemberg, viscose etc.

I really like the cotton lining on mine, keeps it nice and breathable. If it had bemberg in the body I feel like it would be a sweatbox, as I've owned leathers with bemberg before and got really hot unless I wore it unzipped. also it doesnt state if its bemberg specifically but the sleeves on mine are lined in rayon (the fabric used in bemberg), which feels about the same as any bemberg ive owned in the past...

Why in the hell would you need it lined with something that does not absorb moisture while wearing a 5-zip, are you running in a $3000 leather jacket, or in 80 degree plus weather? The arms are lined with sateen or silk, and viscose lol that shit pills like cheap uniqlo sweaters with no aggravation, imagine it being rubbed upon consistently. You simply have no clue what you are talking about.
