    neither maison martin margiela nor TOJ leathers are "high end"
    also today. you can definitely pick up a 5 zip brand new for about a 1/3 of what i paid for my 5 zip ($1800) in 2002

    the jacket is worth about $600 in 2011 new, mine is probably worth in the few hundreds, probably lucky to get $200 for it.

    which is why im just going o keep it for a few more years and donate it to goodwill or something


    i own the fucking thing and im a college kid, who wears it to classes when its cold.
    it's not high end.

    bespoke, thats high end.

    CCP is where the cutt off point to high end would be IMHO, those balmain jackets with the $20k price tags, love to have a few of those.

    you guys said it yourself, mmm is not greatly designed, and its not all that high quality. you put it on the pedestal not me. i bought it because it was a classic jacket that was $1800, and i can't afford a high end jacket right now.

    also: you're kind of an asshole, i don't want you to have my paypal adress or my return adress.


    So you were wearing Margiela in what, 4th or 5th grade? That's unprecedented baller status right there. And buying it with your own money no less? You must have had one hell of a paper route.

    Dude, he is clearly a mature student; did you miss the part where he pointed out that RFX's thinking was typical of a young man who had not the benefit of this socal's years of wisdom, as imparted to him by the partial completion of a program at an institute of higher learning? Raise your hand if any of you went to college. Yeah didn't think so. Game set and MATCH.

    Effing gorgeous. I would love to find an affordable version of this. It's simple, but slim with great leather.


    funny how they call it an aviator when it's a derivative of a LL lightning.

    Well then he best stop referring to himself as a college kid. He's probably 60.

    Maybe this is him:

I would have a hard time saying who made the absolute best of the best today..*I figure it is me and John Chapman but here are a few vintage jackets that I love http://www.himelbrothersleather.com/...m=1&gallery=21 I made those but here are a few examples of jackets I have sold in the past...

    So there is a cut off for 'high end' leather jackets; what is the age cut off for 'college kid' ? 35?

    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
    Wait...how do you explain the MASSIVE vintage clothing scene in Japan...Rin Tanaka's books, the Japanense kids who buy up used Diors from Hedis era, the store after store filled with vintage clothing, not to mention constantly changing YJP market. And before you say anything, I've met one or two Japanese people...I swear. Edit: This WAS my favorite thread to search through before this guy ruined it so maybe this will cleanse it: [​IMG]
