    You look like an idiot starting a wall of text saying you don't want to debate me.

    But I'm obviously needlessly being a dick. To clarify, Impolyt and I both specified in multiple posts that we were talking about black leather size 44. Hell in the post that started this I said explicitly I wasn't looking at other colors or sizes. At this time there are no 44's in black leather starting at 0 yen, nor have I ever seen it. You can be the expert of sizes larger than 44 and I'll be the pseudo-intellectual about 44 black, then we can both walk away knowing we have no lives.

    its true, the exchange rate is even more fucked than when i was searching and im absolutely positive the margiela section of yjp has skyrocketed in terms of activity over the past two years or so. i still think there are deals to be had though... just like on ebay buy it now listigns are usually (not always) not a very good representation of the items market value... all the "deals" that im talking about came on listings which started at 0 yen with no reserve, which, after sorting the jackets section by number of bids, there doesn't appear to be a single one listed right now. too bad, would be interesting to see where it ended up.

    There are actually a lot of companies that make a fake 5-zip/5-zip inspired model that obviously lifts more than liberally from the original and then tries to do something to make it 'different' - but I don't want to make a TOJ 5-zip copy... that is like the same thing as posting nudes of your wife on an internet forum. I love my 5-zip, but it's something deep and special that only it and I know about..... what do y'all know about us?!? :eek:

    Wouldn't it be more akin eating at your own restaurant? It still costs you as much in terms of materials, time, and labor as it does when other people eat there, but you're footing the bill instead of getting the customers to cover expenses + whatever profit margin you pull in.

    I can't really make TOJ stuff for myself because the order log is always too long and would just make people wait that much longer, and also it's not really cheap to make a TOJ leather, even for myself :eek: I am gonna get one of each someday, when I have the time and money...

    you gotta be kidding drew. Don't tell me you didn't keep that CWU or at least one of the bombers. you're pics of those have always been the pinnacle of that 'fit'.

    I sold the brown one to Scott M and I planned on keeping the black CWU, wore it in America on my trip, and then winq wanted it so I gave it to him in LA. :eek:

    What about that suede A-1 blouson? That thing looked fantastic on you.

    The 52 I tried on was huge on me as well. Don't do it! In fact I didn't really like the cut at all for my body type. Maybe that is because it was box fresh but it looked pretty bad on me tbqh

    What's this boards opinion on the Margiela 5-zip? Seems negative.
