    The "Swingin' on a Star" jacket is the best, mostly because it reminds me of Hudson Hawk, which is probably my all-time favorite Bruce Willis/Danny Aiello singing action/heist/comedy.

    Awwwwwwwww yeah!

    I just got the Margiela 5-zip in horse leather, with the black zippers, size 40 (EU 50) off Yoox.

    This is the damn jacket that I've been waiting for my entire life.

    You crazy for this one, Yoox!

    Yeah I was looking at that a while ago but I believe the zips aren't actually there just imprinted in the leather. Still cool though I would just want an actual zipper

    They had both up, the one without the zippers (which MMM calls "high frequency") but this is the legitimate working zipper model.

    EDIT:

    The zip version was $1425 on Yoox. I was on the fence about picking it up at retail ($2165) so I'm a fan of this yoox sale.

    Unfortunately for zip lovers, the one with zippers is already sold out on the site :(

    There's no doubt that the covered zippers are wack.

    Is it just me or does that thing look like a paper thin pleather jacket you could pick up at H&M?

    lol at the knives coming out for Margiela over nothing

    How does a trompe l'oeil zipper get a dozen people upset?

    MMM 5-zip jacket leather can be rather substantial. Nice to handle a jacket not made from sheepskin
