    :lol: that's funny because he seems to be the one who got mad real quick. I simply stated you can't see much in the pic and dude got all defensive. It's a cool collection pic but just say that and show it off and don't get offended just because someone disagrees or doesn't see what he sees.

    I got no hate for GDL, dude is cool but there isn't much to see that pic other than his nice ToJ collection, actually i'd rather see a collection of pics of it being worn because I have no idea which ToJs are in that pic.

    now now that's not a nice way to talk


    your second sentence directly contradicts your first sentence, as highlighted.


    I am not surprised by your statement.


    :embar:


    Actually, if I could only recoup close to what I paid for my Mollino, I'd sell it instantly. But the secondary prices for RO have fallen faster than Facebook's stock


    Not what happened. I bring something to the thread (with a mitigating statement to boot), you dismiss it immediately. I respond in a very civil manner explaining again the limitations of the picture but also pointing out why it can be helpful. You dismiss that again completely. Not sure why you feel like you have to be a dick, and repeatedly too. Whatever makes you feel good, I guess...


    Let's!

    Oh this is being a dick?



    I simply said you can't see shit in that pic but admitted you can tell the difference in the leather thickness. But you continue to talk about the stitching and gussets in a semi blurry photo so how is one to determine that?

    I responded to that reply of your with this and that is also being a dick?




    I agreed that people discount the quality difference in your post but again I just stated what I can and cannot see and if you don't know Rick Owens, you won't be able to tell which one it is. I own ToJ and RO jackets and had to do a double take.

    And I'm being a dick because I prefer stock photos that show off the jacket than the not so clear shoulder pic of yours?

    Ok that last staement was a bit dick-ish but get over it, it's a cool photo of your collection but doesn't show the quality difference. You brought a discussion and I though we were having a discussion, I just happen to disagree, not necessarily dismissing it but I just simply do not see what you are talking about in that pic other than the leather thickness which I already acknowledged.

    thickness != quality.

    and construction != quality, ESPECIALLY when we are talking about what the construction LOOKS like.

    I can barely figure out whether you're being serious or not because you are being so ridiculous. I'll stop wasting my time now, I have an important solitaire game waiting

    What's the feeling about chronicles of never leather jackets?

    Actually, I would imagine the material they used = quality also, which possibly pertains to thickness.

    Not always. My lamb ToJ isn't the thickest but it holds up really well, which is about as nice as one of my lamb ROs. I do have other thinner lamb RO that is not as good as the ToJ but that is the reality of current RO and I don't think anyone is denying that.


    But as far as thickness goes, I've handled Wilsons Leather lamb that felt thicker than ToJs but it's not as buttery or soft and it looks terrible, almost plastic-like.

    Thinking of getting a Himel Brothers Kensington Cafe. Anyone have experience with this jacket?

    That is a great jacket. I am trying to justify getting the one that is all leather except for wool on the collar (shown a few pages back). I don't think I could pull off the one Usher has on but maybe.

    I am really hoping I could catch it on sale at MrP but not being a founding member sucks, it pretty much kills any chance I have.
