    Having now owned the OG Springs (get mine back from the tailor today), the new Springs (returned), and the Plumas, I really like the Plumas.

    ima look in to the riders jacket...hope the fit is on point and Gap doesn't try to cater to its normal customers. their clothes are way to wide and boxy

    the cut on those casts don't look too good

    That stuff looks like junk. Let's assume the rider is the most expensive piece at $595. If you think you're getting a nice leather rider for that price you're outta your mind.

    You're wrong. You can get a classic Schott for around $600 and i bet you the quality and craftsmanship is better than most brands that's selling for $1k. If brand name is a factor for you then get a Supreme x Schott? Not saying this Gap jacket will be superb but you can find a good leather jacket for that price.

    $595 is a tricky price point. You can get decent jackets on grailed for that much, so the fit better be pretty good. Idk though.

    I've got a Schott I picked up new for around 400 on sale and it's solid.

    you're out of your mind if you think you can judge by the price point

    it's not like leather jackets fall apart at prices below 1k

    A Schott is going to fit a million times worse than that Gap rider. The most cropped Schott rider is 26" IIRC, which is way too long for a fashion rider.

    1.5" makes a big difference...

    a size 2 is cut at 25.5 and size 3 is cut at 26 though

    that's not a big difference at all.

    Yeah for sure gonna have to try this stuff on first. I wonder how many more pieces there'll be -- from the video I'm assuming we'll see the paneled flight jacket... hopefully some tees too? I'm def in for some cheap escos tho -- as much as I love JE sweats it's hard to justify the price considering how much I actually get to wear em. New gym sweats hahah

    The point of collaborations are not to pump out high quality products - it's to help dying brands like GAP get some credibility while amplifying known designers. And that's the reason it will be junk. I'm not comparing this to Schott and quality / craftsmanship for their products (which are just fine if you want to look like you borrowed your dad's 1986 harley jacket).

    If they have it, i will pick up some collaboration tees as beaters. None of the other stuff. You can never have enough tees.

    2 totally different statements. I was quoting you regarding not being able to find a quality jacket for $600.

    If you haven't looked into Schott for the past decade, give it another look. They put out really nice updated/modern silhouette. Barney's has the best sellection.

    I grabbed a u neck tee last time around, and it's been something I wear to the gym/around the house. Actually worth it
