    I have the original 5-zip from F/W 1999. Size 48, 19" shoulder, 21" chest, 19" hem. Sleeves are over 8" at bicep. Boxy and awesome.

    I have a newer season one, I think from s/s '10 in kangaroo leather. it's not boxy, it's pretty slim actually. i'm usually a 46 but i bought it in 48 and it fits perfect (imo).

    first one is great


    c'mon man don't treat me like a noob, obviously that is the first thing to do but as i mentioned previously i decided to get a TOJ for now, i felt like it was better value atm, its not a finding issue its a cash issue, i prefer to keep things under 1k

    The black bovine is actually that caugh tmy interest, just a simple black leather w/o the distressing or extra details with regular zippers instead of the blacked out version from a season ago.



    Thanks for the pic, fit looks good.

    xpost from TOJ thread

    impolyt_one:
    if you could see my MMM leather in person, this question is not even a question - the jacket looks cool because it's been worn to death for almost 12 years, but it's not high quality. The MMM calf is about one to one with the TOJ stuff on the topside finish though I might be edging the MMM out a bit, it's hard to tell since there isn't an unwrinkled spot on my MMM anywhere (our calf is near flawless in the hide and we pay a huge premium for that) but the MMM is very thin for calf, not even 3oz, more like 2oz (about 0.6-8mm, it's really quite thin), the lining is cheap cotton+viscose (that has gaping holes all over, and I have to stuff the strands of sleeve lining back into the sleeves), all the seams around the zippers and placket are just sewn and then excess edges are cut - when the seams break away from the stitching there's nothing to do about repairing it cleanly that way.

    The jacket is missing the little flashing details of leather that 'hide' the zips like on my TOJ jackets, etc, and the folded over/sewn seams. The MRS zippers are nice on the MMM, but pound for pound the YKK Japans are about as good functionally - which is why MMM themselves moved to the same YKK zips later on. If you ever look at the Junya X Vanson leathers, you see they use the same exact front zip as we do. It's the same part in a bright finish.[/quote]

    this is what i keep hearing about MMM :confused:

    so don't buy one then man. people obsess over quality too much - that jacket he has is 12 years old, what more do you want?

    It's a limited edition of the same jacket, sans patches. The limited edition was only like 32 pieces or something (and I share cyc's discomfort with wearing the unit patch as a fashion item), but I'm not sure if the base design was only for one season or produced a couple of times. It's the same jacket I'm selling on B&S/in my sig.

    Wait, bovine? What the hell is that? Are they just calling their distressed calf "calf" and their undistressed calf "bovine"?
