    Dude you didn't answer me, you said you'd be lucky to get 200 and I think you're in luck.

    you should read m posts all the way, that last line was specifically to you

    there are none for sale right now, its an old jacket. maybe try 1stdibs

    but i was watching a margiela leather (thinking about, decided not to pull the trigger) on ebay

    went for around $300

    think it was like $320.19 or some shit


    yeah so since one mmm went for ~300, all of them must, right? because lmaozedong won his stooges for 650, all ro leathers go for < 700, right? you are fucking retarded.

    true, just want to be sure cause have lots of interest for quick sale or trade

    It looks tight but most your ROs starts like that and eventually stretches though, no?

    they go for that all day everyday. i already posted the few men's MMM leathers on ebay, none are listed at what you guys are claiming.

    where the fuck are you guys getting these $2000-$2500 figures from?

    shit if i can get that for my leather, if someone offered $2000 for my leather i'd be asking kunk right here ^ if he'd be willing to sell that rick he's got on

    On Y!auction and MBok they are sold for $1600-2200. They're usually in good condition, small sizes (44-48) and sought after colours/treatments. On ebay they don't even come up very often and usually in 50-54 w. crappy colours or treatments. Once again black 5 zips in calf size 44-48, not going to happen and if it did it would be exceptional.

    if you're paying that they are hosing you, thats more than what they cost new, and if you're paying someone to wear a leather jacket for a few years then there is something wrong.

    i'd suggest you step back and look at a newer jacket, 5 zips are aged design wise.
    i'd take that $2000 you have and spendsome time scouring SZ for a newer leather wiith better and more exciting cuts ,features and treatments.

    WTF? I pretty much have all the leathers I need, might get a new jacket at some point but I'm in no hurry.

    I'm telling you what they go for since you don't seem to know. I thought you were Japanese, it seems you are not aware of the inflated prices of Japanese retail and second-hand market.

    Have you ever set foot in a Japanese store where european designer clothes are sold? If you had you'd understand why prices are high even on the second-hand market...

    you're an idiot if you think a 5 zip is anything more than your standard sears moto style jacket with 2 elongated zippers on a symmetrical jacket.

    they're boring as fuck compared to dip dyed leathers, the serfraty croc jacket from a few seasons ago with the hook enclosure, or a _7 red leather

    yes, i lived in tokyo prior to coming here for school. protip: most American's don't know this. Japanese culture, not popular to buy things used. i guarantee none of you won't believe me until you meet a Japanese person, but take it how you want our cultures and norms are compeltey different, you don't need to compare katrina with the recent tsunami to believe that
