    Dude looks like he'd rather be in a workhouse than stand there. Disdain is the new swag

    He IS in a workhouse. Isn't that how they roll in Canada?

    Pretty sure I've successfully convince myself I am too pale and dark haired and swaggerless for that jacket. Time for bed.

    Pic #3 makes it look stupid big notwithit. Like a hospital gown.

    Have it tailored or dont wear it. Doesn't have to be skin tight, just taken in until it looks normal.


    See, this is where you and I disagree.

    notwithit you need a pair of brown side-zip boots.

    Any recommendations? I have this meh pair of Florsheims that I stretched out too much by biking in them, but that's otherwise a hole in my wardrobe.

    get it taken in in the sides instead of darting

    Any particular reason? I usually go for darting so it doesn't billow out in the back (or I do both if it's really big).

    Anyway, thanks for the input, y'all.

    No the MMM leahter.
    Yes on the MMM shoes.

    But I thought you need to fix your car right now?


    I do......that's why I said for future, once everything is on discount later this summer.

    Yeah, I think I'm going to pass on the leather. I like the 5 zips that are just a zipper better, not with the extra leather over them like that one.

    I'm still not entirely sure I get the Margiela 5-zips...I realize that not everything having to do with clothing is functional, but what's the point of having massive zippers that cover most of the front of the jacket?

    What happens if you forget to zip up before you leave the house?

    Red is the color that should be purchased. Make the right decision.

    This is the truth, that red color looks great.

    ^I dunno, that zip detail looks pretty weird in the stock pic, but might look kinda cool worn, hands in pockets and all. Saw a skinny azn wearing a 5 zip the other day and it looked bad ass.

    5 zip > that MMM leather
    If I find a 36 of the 5-zip, I'd probably insta-cop, that new one, would probably still pass at 75% off.

    5 zip is dope, idk why people hate.....I'm a more muscular guy, I've tried one on before and think it looks AWESOME. I've also seen a smaller (asian too now that I think about it melon, lol) who looked really good in one as well.

    No arguments with the cut being nice, I just don't understand the huge zippers on the front. Is there a reason they're there?

    It's the style, it doesn't necessarily need to be fully functional, like epaulets. But the zippers does work and it can be opened and used as hand warmers as well or simply use just like pockets.

    Well, I hate passants (epaulets are the things you dangle off them), so there you go.
