    Should I kop Geller GATs on the cheap? I dunno, I should probably just wait it out till I find a pair of Margiela's in my size but they're just chillin there, don't look too bad....but I will probably want MMM's eventually anyway :foo: egh

    Exactly. You will be much happier if you wait.

    I think they're pretty cool, don't really get the hate for them. A little more punk than MMMs
    Plus the white MMMs always seem to sell out quick these days so you'd probably have to pay at least 2 or 3 more times what you can get the Gellers for

    Here's a compromise: Get Geller lows, find MMM highs :devil:

    Dries ss10 bomber? Worried the print might be too busy, and jacket might not be versatile.

    Based on that shot, it doesn't look particularly busy for a patterned jacket, unless you're concerned about patterned jackets in general being too busy.

    Also, that guy's ears look huge in that photo.

    I don't know if that jacket is lined or not, but if it's the same as the long coat version they did that fabric is super thin/lightweight. Just something to keep in mind. It is beautiful though.

    Ohhhh very good thing to keep in mind. I figured it would be a decent weight. I believe it is the same as the longer coat. How does the pattern look in person?

    yea that Dries stuff literally weighs nothing, like less than a t-shirt

    Couldn't get the MMM bomber fixed? Or looking for something lighter? Like others mentioned, the material is very light, like a windbreaker.

    Don't really care for the pattern detail
