Me too Chet. Elastic on anything outside of a sweater is a deal breaker for me...usually.

I think that's a bad pass

I have some buttons I can swap out...

The drop being listed doesn't mean its an orphan but it being a 150's with buttons matching the fabric makes me think it is. Good pick up still

Underwear?

OMG, my jacket isn't perfect. I must go drop $2000 on a perfect one!! Seriously people, the beauty of thrifting is that you can TRY stuff without forking over huge amounts of cash. Getting hung up on minutiae will leave you frustrated. I'm happy to wear the jacket until something better comes along, or if I decide I don't like leather jackets.

Defensive much. Just sharing an alternative perspective. Enjoy the jacket.

Alex McQueen is up there I'm assuming. Will definitely buy if it's still there.

Who the hell wears undergarments any more?

I wasn't bagging on your jacket, I think it's really good looking actually. And I would thrift that bad boy all day long if I came across it. But...

You are on a website dedicated to fashion. You're really going to do this every time someone gently expresses an aesthetic opinion?

Shipping prices differ both ways.  Just because it may cost 20-25 from US to Canada does not mean the same from Canada to US.  And in fact, some prefer to ship with a 40-50$ option rather than the cheaper option.

Shoot my size, didn't see in time. I'll keep an eye out (though not sure I really need, can't beat that price)

They call it raw denim for a reason right?

Well, apparently, I DID need to add the disclaimer. I'll say it again, in case you didn't notice it last time. When I post a fit pic or whatever in this thread, I don't want your opinion. I'm opinionated (can you tell?) enough to have my own sense of fashion. I try not to negatively respond to other posters fit pics here, and I expect the same. This is not the WAYWN thread...

 

There is a whole lot more to fashion than one person (or website, for that matter) on the internet. For this I am eternally grateful.

his opinion wasn't even necessarily directed at you, but rather the piece of clothing. i don't really think you need to be so defensive in this situation. i'm sure he has every right to have an opinion on a piece of clothing when you're not even in the picture itself...i don't understand.
