Obligation is such a strong word. I dont owe anything to anyone especially for a 2500 dollar luxury jacket that is sorta poor fitting. My friends help me move from time to time, and that definitely takes more than a couple hours. I don`t pay them 7500 dollars.

Be honest you were just trying to justify your purchase, nothing wrong with buying some expensive shit because they made you feel good about the item. I do that all the time, had a great conversation with the manager of the Hiroshima Commes store. I ended up with a tie , I never wear ties. I almost convinced myself to buy a jacket I wanted and reasoned it was due to obligation.
Yea, to be clear: I didn't make this purchase out of the sense of obligation. I made it because I want them. But meeting that not-fully-understood sense of obligation is a bonus, as is having a little story tied to them. I will say I probably wouldn't have given the boots a second chance had I not visited the studio and had the experience I did.

Moving across the country in a few weeks and not sure how to pack my leather jackets. Don't really want to fold them into a box. When I moved to this side of the country I drove them out hanging in the car, but now the company is paying for all of the moving and wife just wants everything in the truck and the cars shipped so we can just fly.

I was thinking of one of these hanging garment boxes,


Anybody have any experience with these or any other way to move my leathers?

Just fold em, they are leather, they will survive. I flew across the country with them in boxes shipped on a boat and took three months. They were totally fine.

Those garment boxes work great. If you are being relocated for work, the relo folks should include all sorts of packing materials and those boxes are typically part of the package. Even if you had to buy a few, they are super easy to work with and make packing & unpacking a breeze.

From Thurston Bros. on how to return fit jackets.

I would just get a large flat box and lay my jackets on top of each other (flat not folded). Maybe with some other garments between them, like cotton jackets, so the hardware doesn't scratch things.

Hanging garment boxes are mostly for tailored jackets, like suits and sport coats, as those items have a three-dimensional shape that's pressed into them with a hot iron. If you lay them down for a long period of time and with a lot of weight on top, you may distort the shape. Not a problem with leather jackets.
