    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.

    The old ones are the boxy ones. The new ones have a pretty severe drop and are much more fitted.

    The two you posted just look too big, especially in the shoulders.

    Most new 5-zip seems rather large in the shoulders to begin with these days, I thought the older ones were narrower?
    Here's a recent one with a more fitted shoulder fit and it still looks boxy.

    I only have the denim one but I really like it. The zippers look much more substantial IRL as well. I don't think it fits boxy.

    That is good to hear, thinking of getting a 36 so hopefully that works out since I can't find a black one in size 34.

    i love the this jacket and its a grail but i dont think i'd get it because
    1. Martin Margiella is gone
    2. He is gone due to bad quality control and not liking direction where MMM was going
    3. its kinda an overpriced diesel jacket, sad
    i wont like i am tempted, if it was sub 1k i'd kop

    uh...margiela has been gone for like.....a long ass time now, bro. they still keep churnin' it out year after year. if you like it, you like it. if you don't, you don't. people are paying more for the style than for the quality in the first place.

    I haven't compared the cut in detail but the old one fits me in a 44/34 (what I got, from 2006) and it ends up being a closer fit at the right places where the new ones is more tubular, fits tighter in the shoulders (so I need a 46) and ends up being less interesting and baggy where it shouldn't. YMMV.

    MMM men's started in like 2005 and MMM in 89, this should tell you where the focus was anyway. AFAIK MMM never had much input in the men's stuff, I know of two designers who were the main ones and they weren't him. He still got involved in the men's shows though so I am sure he did bring something to the men's collection, right up to his departure. Anyway I like what the MMM team does (well a part of it) and while the quality of the output has lowered I still found things I liked in the last collection.
