Black kangaroo 5 zip going for $3200...
~$4k at antonioli.
These look rather nice. The naval insignia is a bit over the top but without them those would look really cool. Nice combination of traditional suit jacket styles with biker leather style on some too.
Nice to see jackets that one could actually wear without looking like a huge douchebag.
I love Balmain. It sucks knowing I'll never be able to afford the jackets, but the pictures are pretty. Even the non-leathers are great.
For those who keep saying there is no Black 5 zips ever for the oddest reasons.....
All sizes are/have been available on Mrporter for I'd say going on 2 weeks now, for those who really want it.
is Mr. P carrying more than one? this one is nearly sold out
It's also available at Barneys in multiple sizes at a pretty hefty 25-30% markup.
EDIT: It's not the distressed one though.
And at half the cost of Barneys, the same non-distressed one on Farfetch.
they usually aren't referencing the distressed/black zip models
Eck was asking for 5zips going on sale and as you can see on those links for the regular black leather, they are already selling out on retail. MrPorter has one size left and that is even the distressed version. Barneys' 5zip is new season and its only been there for a week or two iirc, chances are it'll be gone by the time the next sale season comes around.
No one said the regular black leather was never available, if you are willing to pay retail, I am sure you can get one in the beginning of each season but don't be surprised if they are all gone by the time sale season comes around. You'll see some odd sizes here and there like Farfetch and yoox and if it happens to be your size, jump on it quick because it may not last too long.
^Weird, no joke, I've seen so many black 5 zips on sale, even on YOOX so many times @ like roughy $1,200 Aud (but also tax will also be included, so it would end up being $1,400?), I even came across a 48, the very boxy one, 2005 there abouts. It's amazing how yoox has such old stock, sometimes baffles me (I just got a Raf simons shirt from them, ss 2005 collection)
Anyway I guess Mrporter for Australia site no one gives a crap about the black 5 zips, all sizes always make the sales, its the colored ones that usually go weird enough.
Hell even all the whites are there since sales started, nothing has budged, currently only the IT56 is sold out lol, every other size is there.
I'm guessing they don't go anywhere cause Australia site has a higher markup compared to US prices as well.
Holy shit, those navy lamb Balmains...

Might just be me but I am not feeling that at all, looks too frankenstein-ish to me. The white one looks good because I couldn't see all those seams but now that I do, I don't know.
5th pic is basically a TOJ double rider, i assume backlash wants 3k for it
