did it ever occur to you not to post up a tiny photo while standing in front of a lamp, but instead spend an extra 10 seconds taking another one, preferably without the lamp?

checked out the blue 5 zip from this season, colour is nice but quality is not even close to the black calf FW13 iteration (which i would guess is the one you're talking about).

That's the same 5zip I returned, quality is definitely not better than SLP, maybe Givenchy. The washed calf right? It was super thin, was really disappointed. It initially felt good when I saw it a few months ago at the store, looked solid and nice but once I got one a month back, it felt like a completely different jacket, just flimsy and almost Rick Owens paper thin. I'm sure it's the same jacket too because of the wash or effect it had.

Tried on the red leather SLP a few weeks back, while not the best leather out there, it is overall very good and fit is spot on. I like the Balmains better though, just less bright and less conspicuous.

handled several givenchy, dior, slp etc. leathers in NYC and was quite underwhelmed by them all.
only belstaff shearling(this one i think www.mrporter.com/product/373912) @barneys blew my mind. shit was absolutely amazing.

Yes, I completely agree.  I would be very surprised if any of these pieces cost more than 250-350 euros to make. 

 

Anchoring bias is a b*tch.

Honestly guys after handling CCP, BBS, Incarnation and Balmain (examples that come to mind), the thickness of those jackets is not comparable to most other items. The quality and leather treatments are insane so its hard to look at other things.

I divide the way i look at the Leather jacket market into 2 categories RTW and MTM (i am lumping bespoke into MTM).
  • RTW will have all the awesome crazy treatments, should have a great cut and original design (i use the word original loosely since nothing is really original).
  • MTM will lose out on originality/design but will make up for it with the cut and amazing leather normally.

What i am getting at is its hard for me to look at a RTW jacket and not compare it to my MTM. The MTM wins most times and yet i still drool for the CCP and Balmain leathers.

Aren't there some stylezeitgeistian-type leathers made of pretty high quality, thick horsehide?

Leather thickness is not a who's dick is bigger contest. Its good to have variety, for multiple reasons that were discussed previously on this forum.
