How hard would it be to fix this leather jacket?

No clue, but if you want something really original, I"ve got a leather jacket made from the foreskins of aboriginal albinos.

It"s even in your size.

I would never buy any article of clothing without trying it on first. Just go to a decent second hand store. They always have plenty of balling leather jackets.

I bought this one from a place for $35. Excuse the shitty quality of the pic. Fucking camera phone.

When one of the zippers broke on my leather coat on the 90s it cost me 30 bucks to have it repaired. By a tailor

See, if you took that same coat to a zipper specialist, that repair would have only cost you $5.28.

Beyond all the disrepair stuff, why would someone want a tired, sweat-soaked garment that some other guy wore?

that"s a bad ass jacket.

generally people don"t wear jackets against their bare skin so i don"t think sweat would be an issue.

also those jackets retail at like $800+

Not that I"m giving Keg hard time for the sake of giving him a hard time...no way.

It"s just that used garments to me are just...used garments.

I"d be more interested in paying $800 for a dozen of Linday Lohan"s used tampons, because then I could dual-purpose them as a collector"s item and swizzle sticks for the bad-assed Bloody Maries I make.

According to those guys on American (garbage) Pickers, old leather jackets are highly collectible because they are retro and broken in and soft. 800 doesnt sound insane for.a well worn vintage leather jacket. But damaged? Nah not worth it
