    They only had one size left though and that's the only reason it went down that deep on discount.

    What do you guys think of this Balmain jacket from fall 2013? I bought it for 50% off and now am trying to decide whether I want to keep it or return it.

    It looks great in this photo but in person the patterned embroidery on the shoulders and the unnecessarily numerous zippers (which are a bit too shiny) might make it just a little over the top, in least for me.

    Also, the lapel seems distractingly big, again, at least to me. On the plus side, the leather is of a very high quality (plonge I suspect), the lining is thick and warm, and I really like the ribbed patterns at the top of the sleeves.

    Here's a photo of the one I bought:

    What do you guys think of this piece? Should I keep it or return it?

    Im guessing with 50% off total is around $1700. So yea return and buy 3 TOJs off of here, or just one your choice. I know there is a tan one snowman is selling which is awesome and there is a grey suede one floating around which is pretty cool also. Lots of nice options pop up on B&S.

    Thanks guys. TOJ is definitely a good recommendation.

    Nothing else seems to be quite right to me except for some of the Balenciaga jackets from a few years back under the previous designer -- they were simple and clean and the details were usually nice and subtle. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of the new Alexander Wang stuff, nor of the brand's new markups, which seem to now be approaching the 10x-12x Saint Laurent territory.

    Blk denim leather quality is lacking. If you'll notice, he's flipping it anyway.

    I'm not really expert here but I liked it on grizzly. Suited him a lot.

    Thanks v much for the suggestion, but I'm not a huge fan of epaulets. At least for me, I prefer clean, simple, and refined, with subtle details. The fit and finish/fabric should do the talking. :)

    E.g. if this balenciaga jacket below were in black, it would be absolutely perfect -- super tasteful bomber meets safari jacket that would probably never go out of style. A pared-down biker style might be even better

    It might have. The beige shearling in the lookbook was available in beautiful black.
