    I think that it's not a bad jacket. But it is the culmination of all the hyped things in leather right now. Horween, CXL, double rider. Well, at least it's not shell.

    That was exactly what I thought of. I actually like this execution better than CP's; the zipper cutting into their version is no bueno.

    i was thinking about this but correct me if i'm wrong, the silhouette is different from the male version...
    compared with pics on pnp and darklands the body length seems longer in relation to the sleeves and the body more roomy.

    quote from sellers description: "The style is the same as the male version of the infamous hi neck leather, except the body and sleeves are shorter." also front zip slants to the opposite side

    It is SLP and I thought the same thing. Maybe it's some weird version they sent to Neiman Marcus. I'm of avg height and weight, so i dunno.

    Anyone know anything about this Margiela "bomber," as Ssense calls it. Is it as slim fitting as it looks, to the point of sizing up? I more want this season's blue 5 zip, but I want it for like $1000.

    I would take your regular size. Funny thing is, this model is wearing a size small (46) in that jacket, where as with pretty much everything else he's worn for the site, was a size medium (48). It also really doesn't look like he can comfortably even zip that jacket up, idk what SSENSE was thinking sizing down on him for this piece.
