I know it's strange to be comparing a $550 jacket to a $4,000 SL, but I'm actually really impressed with Viparo's quality on this jacket.They used some really nice thick aniline cow leather and the fit is great too. Definitely worth the money imo!

 

The major difference here is that one is crap and the other is not.

I personally don't consider a $550 leather jacket to be "crap". The Saint Laurent obviously has far superior construction and materials, but for an average person like me, I'm perfectly happy to save $3,500 on a very similar jacket.

It's not very similar. It's a ripoff made in india from low quality leather and isn't worth the price they are charging you.

 

I strongly suggest returning that jacket if possible. There are plenty of better options during sales than... that.

 

Also please check the thread title before you choose to continue the discussion further.

I actually got it for $400 and it is the best leather jacket I've owned so far, so I see no problem with my post.

What label would you suggest in the same price range though? I have a very hard time finding leather jackets that I like and fit me well.
I need a more fitted jacket, which is why I have been buying from Viparo lately.

real life checking in here... at some point y'all may have a moment where you want something and your SF training will fight you because there's a better price to quality ratio version unicorn somewhere out there off the internet, but you're going to want to just buy the damn thing and move on with life. Most people walk in, find something they like, and buy it at full retail. If you've hunted around for X item and seen a bunch, and find one you like and it's pretty much what you were going for and it's a comfortable price, just buy it and don't worry about the interwebz' approval. Trust yourself.

dude says I'm happy with the discount I got (I'm comfortable at this price point)
It's the best I've ever owned (it's already an upgrade for me)
I have a hard time finding stuff I like (I'm picky and this works for me) and fit me well (can't buy off internet because need to fit it on)
what else would you suggest (ok you've opened a can of worms people, I'm keeping this unless you can give me a better option considering the above)


so I don't know any of the background on this Viparo VS YSL story nor do I know much about leathers, but if new guy with mild clothing interest likes the jacket and is comfortable with his $400 price and it makes him feel like he's got something similar to his unattainable unicorn jacket, hell, why tread on his dreams? Dude, enjoy your Viparo and go play outside.

This is the siccest *lightweight* leather jacket I can find.

Cannot find it online anywhere anymore. Does anyone know a jacket that looks identical to this one? Hooded, thin loose fitting lambskin, leather throughout? Dying to have this. Looks like the one Wiz Khalifa wears in the Old Chanel music video. If its not the one hes wearing in Old Chanel, someone tell me what that jacket is! Prease!

I guess if he's happy that's all that matters I mean it does say that in the constitution.

 

Just... made-in-india YSL knockoffs...

I dunno Distorb's post seems perfectly in-line with this forum and its interests. It's StyleForum, not AskMen.
post #9776 of 12873
I understand where he's coming from and it all makes sense but if the dude is really happy with his jacket, then so be it.

Suede stooges is super nice but I think a little too snug for me, will likely return. Thoughts?
Big fan of the leather. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

People can be happy with a lot of ugly shit.

 

Stop being an enabler for bad clothes, 5354!

 He can be happy with his jacket but that doesn't make the jacket less shitty. I'm with Distorb on that.
