    Zero Halliburton is in the other 10%.

    man, it looks so much weaker with the YKK's. Being that the jacket's focal point is the huge zippers that make the 'M' shape, it needs the biggest, baddest zippers it can get, and those little #8 YKK's don't cut it.
    I really want a white MMM, but not one with YKK's..

    Double Riders are really trendy right now - probably on the crest - and bombers are riding the 80's trend. Not sure where that is on the hype scale right now. I remember that around 2001, if something had a ribbed waistband... man, no way that was going to fly with anyone under 60, but you wouldn' know that after the past few years. Harrington's were very cool er... 2007 or so. Motos and cafe racers were all over the place a couple of years ago too. Things just come in phases. Unless you are really involved in analyzing trends, people tend to get caught up in the zeitgeist without ever really realizing it. I like motos because they have a nice, streamlined shape, and the band collar makes my long ass neck look more balanced.

    true, the DRs are huge right now and we're seeing this return to classical leather styles rather than the organic/stylized leathers that have dominated recently (and still do here and on sufu), but I think Bombers with the fur collars have a bunch of potential right now, since we are on the cusp of a military revival (again) in the mainstream, except everybody is sick of M65's so we are gonna see other stuff come back. I had that in mind and I have the feeling the A2s with fur will be BIG, they were already in Japan just recently and I think they probably still have life left in them there as well.

    The good thing about the 3 classic styles of leathers, cafe racer/Moto, DR, and A2 Bomber (plus the belted Belstaff to a lesser extent) is that they come back in cycles much faster than other styles of clothing. I remember being intensely attracted to black cafe racers with long wrist zips way back in like 1995 or something, but being in high school I really had no use for a piece of clothing like that.

    I may be in the minority but that MMM looks great to me, although I have seen more flattering photos of it elsewhere. Yoox photos can be off sometimes. The zippers look like the right size to me IRL on the black version of that jacket. I would love to see the white in person.

    Tell BEAR JEW I just sent his TOJ Bomber, so it'll be there this week; when you see it in person, you will realize how silly it makes this blue jacket look, lol....

    I just got my Jil pants from Gilt and they're really great. But someone missed out and has made a very generous offer. However, I feel like black wool trousers are a good thing to have around (have no other wool trousers), even if I wouldn't wear them much, and I'd be hard-pressed to get this kind of deal again. But I could use the money for sure. Should I keep the pants because they're quality and good to have or flip them and get back to copping strong?

    I have a pair of r&b black trousers that I really like but only seem to wear them once in a blue moon. I've thought about putting them up on b&s but then I think how versatile black trousers are and how much of a pain it would be to have to find one similar to it on short notice. I'd say keep it if you really love it.

    I buy pants like that and never get around to wearing them because I don't have the right shoes. It depends if they actually fit with what you have (or are planning to buy). If you're not gonna get any use out of them, might as well sell.
