Leather Jackets

Post by Chuck Mangione » 21 Feb 2010, 6:21am

JESUS FRIGGIN' CHRIST they've gotten expensive. Anybody see how high Lewis Leathers' prices have gotten lately? The Clash have been wearing Lewis Leathers since their existence, I'm sure, but there's no way they've always been this fucking expensive. How much were they in the punk years, approx. 100-200 dollars, right? Affordable. Especially for those who actually wore 'em (working-class/lower-class to middle-class Punks). Now look at them! They're like 645 EURO... EURO!!! That's like a million bucks (about $1000 actually). Fucking yuppies can only afford THAT!

There are some exceptions though, like some punk rock clothing sites, eBay, and thrift stores. But still... boo to Lewis Leathers! Greedy bastards! -- Quality leather MY ASS!

Also, I made this as an official leather jackets thread. So feel free to discuss YOUR jackets made out of dead cows and the likes.

I would doubt very much if anyone walked into a shop and bought a leather jacket in the "punk years".

I never owned mine until I got into rockabilly. In my punk years, I pretty much dressed like a homeless person.

Just intentionally derail it with threaddrift. Like another lizard-bear thread.

Find a yuppie and jack him for it.

But be careful not to jack a guy who jacked a yuppie for it. They might be tough.

Also, are we saying the only thing yuppies can afford is a jacket? That seems odd...
