    Those RRLs are great for niche subculture pieces, especially the last one with the skull on the back. You turned a lot of people off by presenting them as like the apotheosis of the leather jacket concept, which they definitely are not.

    Maybe posting fits that do them justice - i.e. not flip flops and sweat pants - would do a better job at showcasing them

    From now on, i'll just hang them and capture. Was just trying to show the jackets, not sell an outfit.

    There's just nothing really awesome about that jacket. It's a standard design with some ugly patches and is beat up pretty badly. The skull design is pretty cool, I guess, but it's not the be-all end-all you're toting it as. You came in here with a bad attitude and it's going to taint every exchange you have here for some time.

    The thing is a Neil Barrett jacket, hence the astute comparison to another Neil Barrett jacket.

    I really like the bomber he posted earlier, jackets definitely aren't my style but hey. The "hipster, your rent blabla flipflop FatxlRose!" was some crazy rant though and, for better or worse, he looks LA as fuck. Anyway keep posting jackets, that's the goal of the thread.

    i honestly don't think he was that bad until he dropped the price and label etc... truth is the jacket in the above pics is ok,
    the boots look like something from goodwill as does this

    this thread is dominated by RO/Julius and the like, and those are fine jackets, most ppl on sf are not fans of big logos or brand names to begin with but once you start telling sf how much you paid for the jacket it just makes things worse because then not only do sf folk think its a bad jacket but then we think you wasted cash on a bad jacket,

    my advice is just drop it and move on, you can't force people to like your clothing/style, if you like it then enjoy but don't expect people to agree with you

    they're similar but there's some pretty big differences, it's not a knock-ff by any measure

    I still want a 5-zip but I have a feeling the new ones doesn't really fit like this anymore?

    I got the pic from this thread and it was posted last year and the pic does look like it from a few years back, not sure though. It just seems like all the recent 5-zip fits looks way boxier. Could be just bad photography too but I haven't seen any recent 5-zip that looks too great like the old ones.
