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.

art I think the Rick fits as it should.

thanks, it's close, still debating. i feel like zipped up its not so flattering.
post #9785 of 11015
I think it looks good too Art, even when closed. Probably no room for layering though.

It definitely looks a little tight, especially the shoulder area, but it looks alright when it's open. Probably stretch a little bit too, though that leather looks pretty serious. Stooges is a jacket I'd go a half size up rather than down in - aggressive jacket like that still looks pretty good when it's oversized and you can throw something under it as well.

Here's a fit from Fuuma that inspired me to get the jacket in the first place and myself in a Stooges just for comparison

Alright let's address a few things here

 

1. It's not ugly, far from gaudy (most of Allsaints' leathers), and frankly, could be a lot worse

 

2. Not everyone has 5k to blow on an SL jacket. I think you should put yourself in the perspective of other consumers and consider that for $400, it's not that bad. Speaking from a strictly economics-based perspective, he's happy with the jacket and believes he gained his utility's worth from his purchase.

 

3. Let's make it clear that I'm not saying this jacket necessarily belongs with the thread title. Personally, I wouldn't have bought the jacket, but I can see why others would. Sure, you can save a little bit more and go for a used TOJ, but those are hard to come by in the style one may want and the size that one may want. He could probably try a Schott leather, but I'm pretty sure they don't fit slim (?) and their design is a little bit more traditional.

Nobody was suggesting that he spend $5k on the SL, but I'd rather have $400 than a bad looking knock-off.

Thanks NN, shooting for something in between what i've got now and yours and fumma's. I think if it stretched it would be ok. Will sleep on it some more.

could you even take 1sz up in the sleeves on that?

@5354 

It's still an overpriced knockoff. Someone being happy with their bad purchase doesn't absolve them from criticism, regardless of their satisfaction. 

post #9792 of 11015

Whatever.

Cause of the length? I don't know, they're stupid long regardless. And i have long arms. Could always have them shortened.

I don't like it. The cut looks extremely unflattering. Leather doesn't look that nice either
