That is pricey. And really small.

I know many here are enthralled with Slemane but God the man is a HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE designer. For some reason, people give him a pass on everything simply b/c he brought the skinny look back.

If I could pull that off, I might like it, but since it's totally not my style, I will say it would look good with "DICEMAN" bedazzled on the back. Oh. <puff cigarette>

Do not like it. I am very sensitive to leather jacket styling, having owned many, beginning with a basic black leather biker jacket when I was 14 (which, according to age survey, predates the birth of the majority of you). My credo: keep it simple. The more zippers, pockets, pleats, seams, epaulets etc., the cheaper the look. My opinion only; no offense intended.

The retail of the jacket is unbelievable. I mean at $7300 you can buy a lot of clothes (even at full retail). Not to mention I really do not like the design at all, it is almost as bad as last seasons RLPL faux-motorcycle leather jackets (I say faux, because they are not motorcycle grade leather and would not work as a true riding jacket).

I love it. I wish I had it 7 years ago when I still listened to the Ramones. I would be the coolest punk in 8th grade.

I really like that.

It would be paired with a pair of YSL violet trousers, chisel toed black Lattanzi's, a white shirt by Demeulemeester, a Bottega Veneta cap from the 2001 collection, Dries von Noten vest, and a a Vivienne Westwood skull tie. With a black Lucien Pellat-Finet belt.

I was thinking more like black jeans and a black graphic tee. Or maybe a white V-Neck.

I like to give a dandified twist to certain outfits.

LabelKing, I see you're living up to your username. If someone (elsewhere) said they'd like to match a heavily accessorized black leather jacket with purple pants, black shoes, a white shirt, black vest, skull tie, and cap, I'd tell them to enjoy their Alice Cooper concert. I hear Molly Hatchet is opening. Â
I'm not opposed to black leather jackets or motorcycle jackets, or even the occasional bedazzlement, it's all a matter of taste. I don't even mind designer clothes priced like art objects; to me, though, that Dior Homme piece is a good example of that concept gone wrong.

The Dries Van Noten is actually a white double breasted vest. But then I don't really listen to Alice Cooper in any context really.
For example a Kiton three piece cashmere in gray could be paired with an obscenely striped Etro, a Dolce Gabbana Baroque paisely in a Windsor. As well as violet Berluti's, gold pocket watch chain, and a pair of horseshoe cufflinks by Longmire. With an orchid as a boutonniere, and a simple white linen pocket square.

Agree wholeheartedly - IMO the jacket is quite average too.
