    It’s some sort of high fashion so I presume “looking happy” would be considered un-cool.

    You are right. A bored expression bordering on a scowl is the norm for these shoots. Ours at TFL are much better.

    The PER70 is a great jacket, but €1500 great!?

    This is an 1150USD jacket (which is already crazy money for a Schott)

    Schott must think we Europeans are crazy (about their 'Mythical USA' product)

    What does "looking happy" look like?
    I often get comments that I look too angry and I should laugh.
    I find posed laughter silly and therefore look serious.
    With this down jacket I would probably look dead sad and unhappy. Lol

    Looking at the photos, I never would've paid more than $300 for this jacket. Owning it, I'd buy it sooner than any other Perfecto, by any maker. 1500 Euros is a lot though but realistically, if Fine Creek or RMC sell their stuff for well over 2K€ in EU, if I was Schott, I'd be asking the same amount of money. Both OTR, both equally good, except that one is a copy of another.
    It is stupid, however, it's that much cheaper in USA. But then again, all jacket prices are quite stupid.

    Next time you post I would love to see you be as happy with your jacket as these women with their salads. Deal?

    these women probably would frown at the sight of dead animal skin worn as jacket

    I remember Levis being super expensive in Germany my first visit. It was the same price there as the Big Star jeans. But the same Big Sar jeans would cost double in Vancouver. So I bought some Big Stars. It's funny how prices differ based just on regions.

    I think it's in relation to the abovementioned salads and their ensuing hilarity.

    I’m all for reinterpreting classics and i think that if all we had were repros, it’d be pretty boring but… this?! Levi’s vintage clothing?! What a waste of deadstock Cone Mills denim…
