    leather jackets are investment pieces. blue leather jackets less so.

    wish there was a pocket or something on the front of it.

    a good investment?

    oof I have crazy lust for that but cant justify $2,800 plus tax. I actually posted that jacket here a few weeks ago.

    A leather jacket is most definitely an investment piece. A blue leather jacket, not so much. Related note, there is a really nice Julius fencing on Yoox in III and IV (I usually only see Julius on the boards in I or II)

    i would be able to justify that to myself if it weren't for all the shit i bought in the past month that i ended up disliking. talk about quantity vs. quality [​IMG]

    read 3sixteens return policy. i would vote against simply for the reason that you can't return it.

    also i ordered the levi/filson which i ended returning since the shoulders were not quite wide enough for me to move comfortably even after sizing up (i have fairly wide shoulders) and I must say its pretty sweet.
    It is really solid as in stiff and thick, which might be too much for some. It will last forever and the color should develop and gain some character. The vertical lines and pocket configurations look great, simply yet cool. I would be rocking this thing happily if the shoulders were a tad wider

    Seriously? You mean most will remain in style and appreciate in value? Here's some high-priced ones on eBay...can't imagine these appreciated much, except for maybe something handed out by the air force: http://tinyurl.com/4llpzeh

    Out of the box the darker pair look better but I think with a bit of love and attention the lighter pair will age better. Personally I like the look of these:

    Me too MoK...but they are sold out of my size and being a special for the bureau I don't think they would be easy to pick up. I'm going to call in later and speak to the guys...maybe try those other boots on.

    How about these suede shoes by Sanders?

    I've been looking for a pair for a long time. Plain suede bucks are too boring, and I think balmoral lacing is too formal (at least for my first pair of suede).

    The price is right ($~225), but I'm wondering whether a similar pair from Alden are worth nearly 2x as much. The pair of Sanders below has a crepe sole, but Sanders are goodyear welted and can be re-soled, right?
