    That sure is one of the best looking julius jackets (or even leather jackets in general) out there. Too bad even size 3 is too slim for me.

    Someone mentioned before something about dying a leather jacket. Is this really a viable option? I've been eying one light brown RO but dunno what to wear with with. Black would be more versatile but I'm afraid dying will ruin the jacket, let alone the resale value.

    I don't disbelieve this I'm just pointing out that quoting the owner of a company as a source for the company having great products is silly.

    IIRC drew included neither YSL nor DH in the comparison that spacepope was talking about. I think if any designer leather were to surpass toj in quality it would be one of those two, particularly YSL (old YSL - I do not know how slimane's presence has affected the label). That said, for me personally, that tiny quality increase is not worth over $4000 if the design is essentially the same.

    I died a pair of KVA sneakers black and it was fairly easy. Im sure a jacket wouldnt be much harder. If you do so make sure to buy oil based dye (fiebings works great).

    The Balenciaga jackets this past F/W felt like garbage. I wanted to like the knit sleeved one so badly. The Balmain moto was nothing special.

    I actually posted this on SZ, but rethought the 5zip would cater to more styleforum members.

    I couldn't find a yes or no section either, so be brutally honest people, no harm done, thanks even and no I can't change the face so fk off for that one.

    Should I keep both or neither? or just one, I can't decide, help a bruddah out.

    EDIT: Also sorry if I posted in wrong section, please do tell where I can re direct this post within Styleforum, I will delete and post correctly.

    5 zip.

    The second only if you really want to build a goth-ninja-er wardrobe. But there are many better black leathers. Id say fewer awesome red leathers. that 5 zip is one of them.

    Color is much nicer than I thought. Need to come up with 1k somehow now :D
