    I'm sure these have been posted before, but some concept leathers from Margiela's SS98 "flat garment" series. The jackets basically hang flat, but through various gussets and zippers, they expand when worn.

    From Vogue:

    “When not worn these pieces are totally flat,” read the words at the back of a stage on which men in white lab coats presented clothing on hangers as if at an auction. A video showing the garments on models also played. In 1990, fascinated with proportions, Margiela had reproduced a doll’s wardrobe in adult sizes. The challenge for Spring ’98 involved geometry, specifically how to make two-dimensional garments that would lie perfectly flat when not on a three-dimensional body. Pictured in the photo above: a designer version of the everyday plastic grocery sack, which Margiela had already transformed into a top at the very beginning of his career.

    Same concept on the H&M x Margiela collab.

    So where could I try and feel some Aero leathers? Los Angeles? San Fran? New York?

    Isn't that only if you commit to a purchase of a jacket and a non-refundable deposit?

    Yes, my bad, you are correct. $30 to have the fit jacket shipped:

    “Customers pay the base price of the style, plus shipping, to get a stock jacket shipped out for the fitting.“

    Probably not far from the truth.
