    i bet they would cost like hell. having seen some of their other stuff myself over here, im pretty sure you can get a better bang for the buck going for something else. just my take though.

    oh its obscene how much most of number (n)ine costs. however they told me over the phone that their cheapest denim was $320, but the guy that worked there couldnt confirm that it was raw because he specialized in runway and talored jackets was the cheapest model probably raw?

    most of it is quality though. i can't speak for their denim though. I've seeen a few pairs in second hand shops here and i don't remember them being anything special.

    i did get a thin lamb suede riders jacket from them though- pure quality. leather is like a collection privee jacket but even softer. silk lined, cut is excellent. also, i think its a bit cheaper here than in the states.

    Geez... Yeah, I'd forgotten how much Number (N)ine stuff costs.

    Horse leather - yeah, you could great dragged under a truck, Indiana Jones style, and the jacket would just be a little scratched up! I honestly think that the Margiela biker jacket is one of the best designed jackets, if not the best, I've seen though. Now, I just have to save up the $1500, or get really luck on Ebay.

    The Margiela jacket is sick. One of the coolest designer pieces. I just got a suit from the new-ish 14 line recently... it's serious stuff. Totally JFK-style, and the trousers have some of the coolest little details. Margiela's workmanship is top notch.

    Got a horse leather jacket from coldrice, love it [​IMG]

    As for the Margiela jackets, you're talking about his classic design with the three zips? He made so many permutations of it that it's always possible you'll find one on ebay or discounted somewhere. I do agree it's one of the best jacket out there. Now as much as I may love looking at Margiela's clothing I've never found something he made that fit me, especially the suits [​IMG] I always end up looking like a luxury hobo and not in a good way.

    I took some of the shoulder padding out of my suit, and now it looks totally boss. I kind of know what you mean though.

    e

    Did you take out the padding yourself, and how did you do it exactly?

    That wouldn't solve my problem with margiela though, it's more about how it drapes on me than anything else. If I was a size larger I'd be all over his stuff though, he really is a designer's designer and contrary to some of the other more conceptual fashion brands out there I think he's consistantly interesting instead of being somewhat interesting and consistantly pedantic (see Haute, Linea and other CCP).

    A tailor took a couple layers out (not all of it).

    I see what you're saying. I do think you should check out his 14 line. It's sized much more appropriately for it's tags. The chest on my jacket measures 38" and the shoulders 17" (size 46). Waist always needs to come in a little bit for me though (some 10-12" drop to my natural waist).
