post inspo, underrated brands, w2c, all that.
speaking of which, where can one get a biker jacket that is also is functional and not retarded-looking when zipped up/has actual pockets?
I hate the acne leather jacket but it's still the best one on a budget...
Fuck cheap clothes just save up for an slp one dude. You can easily wear it with a cheap tee, some thrifted jeans and a pair of converse or something.
Outerwear is the thing that lasts the longest so you should invest in quality
op here. i like it.
and yeah you're right, but since hedi is leaving, i think by the time i'd have that kind of money, i fear a jacket would be even more expensive than it is now.
i like rick's jackets a lot, too, and there are some i think are compatible with the aesthetic/surprisingly versatile, but i hate the blistered/beaten leather look
Bought for 20% of retail price, try to sell for profit or keep?
Wanted a rider but imo this one just looks ridiculous, the flaps were like 3x as big as they looked on the photos.
Just copped this one from Sandro. If your budget is reasonable (not over £1000) I'd definitely recommend giving them a look.
Yeah but where can I cop faux leather that looks real and matte and not super shiny? Its usually cheaper and better for the environment generally so I would probably get one if it looked real
Looking for a rider like the zara above
I got pic related, after looking through tons of jackets both online and in stores. Had a belstaff store nearby and tried it on. Was perfect since I looked for a sleek cafe racer without any crazy zippers and pockets like most jackets these days. Expensive af but worth it. Thick lamb leather, very nice quality and great slim cut. (these models in the pics are nearly always cake eaters, so they're not representative)
I would recommend to anyone: you HAVE TO try it on before. there's no other way to know if it fits you. with leather jackets, fit is the absolutely most important thing, especially around the shoulders. look for thick but soft leather and try to stay away from cheap jackets with 'polished' or 'corrected grain'.
also don't listen to these SLP/Rick homos like >>11124273
these niggas know shit about jackets and just the meme-train.
while it is true that you can't get a good quality leather under a certain price point, that point varies greatly between brands. quality and treatment of leather and cut of the jacket drives the price up. anything that costs over 1000 to 1500 is a rip off and you only pay for the brand name. but in all honestly a shitty pleather jacket that fits you well will look miles better than a high end jacket that looks like a soggy robe on your shoulders. my last tip would be: think long term. consider going for a clean style with a higher longevity style-wise, instead of some heroin-shooting rock star look with tons of diagonal zippers, pockets and sewn patterns. they may look good on pictures, but in reality these jackets will only embarrass you in public.
Zara has one 90% similar to this for $150. It is basically a copy, same washed texture, design is very similar. Check it out. The leather was surprisingly nice for a $150 jacket.
Glad you asked, was about to post about mine.
For the price you pay I have absolutely zero complaints, and I'm on a budget so this was really big for me.
I definitely recomend them, their customer service and care is amazing too.
