    I'm just trying to figure out how on earth the wearer managed to do that... without ripping their arm off lol.

    that likely fit ultra tight and wearer pulled a hulk flex move or something, never thinking lamb wouldn't hold up, rip likely started at the back of the pit seam then ran astray

    I'd put a single leather piece over the whole rip area with overlock stitching and use it as a beater, then again I dont like the jut neck height or how it looks folded so prolly cut that in half to a quasi-moto height while I'm at it

    Is it possible that jacket didn't have that rip when they put it on the rack and since it's so small, someone tried to hulk into it...

    I admire the owner for having the business savvy to get the consignment store to pay any money for it at all. I would have just thrown it out lol

    Maybe it belongs to the shop owner?

    Maybe it's just being sold on consignment so the shop has nothing to lose by putting it out. Will just give it back to the owner if it doesn't sell.

    With the stooges talk over the last few days, I thought i'd post up my most recent purchase. Originally I was hunting down the oiled calf from crust, but this one popped up which seemed just as good, if not better.

    Leather looks nice, though I do think a size down might look better
