    yo RFX do you think that $13-1400 is too much for a dove gray stooges?[​IMG]

    I think it might be too much. Condition and size plays a role in it too. A size small will likely be more expensive than larger sizes. I'd pay that much for a brand new size small oiled calf in black, I'm not sure i'd pay that much for the same in dove grey. Is dove grey an actual RO colorway or is that just a variation of drkshdw?

    I think the better question is RO or Julius?
    Much similar aesthetic too.
    I've never handled Julius so I wouldn't know.

    I want the jut neck from A/W 2009. Hopefully they will remake or make a similar one.

    sorry about the near profile angle, was trying to avoid awkward looking head on shot, went a bit too far and couldnt be bothered snapping another. this is the second early five zip ive owned, the first was a darkgreyish 52 and although it ran small it was still simply too big everywhere. the leather was nice, a very substantial calf, but unsurprisingly it was also heavy and somewhat restricting. this is a 48, and the leather is soft and buttery. very happy with it.

    Love the BOO for Barneys


    I like that too. What's it like 1800?

    the leather quality on that Geller looks cheap as shit.

    +1

    Looks similar to the leather Levi's used on their Capital E leathers.
