    No. I like the jacket and was looking at that very same one a few days ago, just their leather always gets reduced heavily end of season.

    I feel you. To be honest, I may have acquired some type of immediate buyers disease when I had this urge to buy a $1200 surface2air jacket and when I finally had the nerve, it was sold out. Alas, to justify the price would be to say it was limited edition.. but more are apparently "coming soon." This, a seasonal piece, will not be around forever. Especially in a size I want.. so I figure it's best to act quickly.. and at a price compared to the 800 euros I would have spent on an Italian made piece, it's a "steal" to me, or at least in my mind. It will last forever hopefully.

    ^ He's saying that it's really expensive for an All Saints jacket, and I'm inclined to agree. The brand isn't exactly known for selling high quality clothing, and a lot of the pieces they're selling, especially the leathers, look like ripoffs of other more popular brands such as Rick Owens and Julius. Also, how a jacket looks on a model usually isn't an accurate representation of how it'll actually fit on you. I guess you'd have to see it in person to get a better idea of the construction, leather quality, fit, etc. so I hope I'm wrong about this.

    Me too. There's always the option of return but I am one of those who believe they get what they pay for. By the way that's not a model it's a rock star.

    Yea me too. I kind of want it to look a bit "undersized" but I feel the odds are in my favor, regardless. I am 125 lbs, 5'8".. so I'm a fairly slender dude. ordered an xs

    My newborn child arrived in the mail today [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Was it worth 700$ ?? Probably not, but what do I know about really good leather. It feels and smells amazing, that's for sure. It fits very snug, actually slimmer and smaller than I expected (was worried about it being too big actually). Some may say I should even size up but I know this will stretch to my body as I wear it constantly. Am I happy? Absofriggenlutely. All Saints won me over for life. If I had to complain about anything it'd be that there is no inside pocket, also the interior lining is very basic.. just cotton. But this is nothing I cannot change in the future assuming I own this for many many years. Also. I am selling my never worn Blackscissors Justice jacket. It is literally brand new, it was delivered at the start of summer. I paid about $330 shipped as it was a custom design. I am looking to sell it for $300 SHIPPED or best offer. Please send serious inquiries only, I am a very easy person to deal with and ship from NJ. Here are the measurements for the Blackscissors moto jacket SURFACE TO AIR - XS Armpit to Armpit - 49cm Shoulder to Shoulder - 42cm Shoulder to Cuff - 68cm Neck to Waist - 63cm Sleeve width @ elbow - 15.5cm Sleeve width @cuff - 10.5cm

    don't know what you guys are talking about. Looks shit to me. Especially the zippers.

    but if you're happy with it then good for you.

    Would definitely be better with gunmetal zips or something. Too much contrast. But hey, the fit is there. As for the quality... well, it can't all be rick.
