Posted previously, but here it is.
I get that, luckily I’ve had no sense of sartorial history till now…It's not about the jacket per se, just the fact that these makers seem legit incapable of coming up an original idea anymore, rehashing the same old styles, originally produced by makers that charged 10 times less for them - Such as Lee.
Also, I still strongly stand by my belief that suede, being a by-product, doesn't justify such high pricing. If it was a rough-out, that'd be another story but this. . .
Other than that, there's of course nothing inherently bad about a Lee trucker style this jacket is a direct, 1/1 ripoff of. Something they sort of acknowledge, at least.
There is, however, something very bad going on here. The button always goes on the tip of the triangle. If a mass-produced Lee got it right, Double Helix should've as well.
I've no OCD but this does bother me.
Took the words out of my mouth. I feel the sane way about these trucker jackets. Clearly the same amount of work goes into making these as other jackets but i couldn’t tell anyone a reason but I just can’t see a reason to pay crazy amounts for these like the Japanese brands.For this style (and availability everywhere) $1150 is way too much. For under $100 I’m just as happy with my Gap version.
1960's Schott I believe.
