    Guys can you please talk me out of this purchase

    I'm in need of an intervention. This would consume my entire clothing budget/limit I set for myself until October. I would REALLY have to be on a spending freeze until the end of fall, perhaps even winter, if I bought this. Yet this jacket keeps calling my name.

    470 buckaroos is no joke but something about the green leather is very very appealing to me.

    Keep in mind that you will sacrifice 2 season's worth / half a year of clothing purchases for it.

    The pockets look terrible; totally ruin the silhouette.

    Also, have you tried it? If fit isn't dead on you'll hate yourself.

    Yeah, not a fan of the pockets. The color doesn't seem all that versatile either. I think this is one that you think you want but once you get it you'll realize you made a mistake.

    Also, if you buy it now, you'll have this new leather jacket to wear just as summer starts and temperatures rise. It might collect dust until the fall.

    If I were to go all Duvel on you, which I won't, I would say, WTF are you thinking, man? What in the world are you using as your guidelines for taste?! It doesn't fit any sort of classic template. It looks like it fits poorly. It's an odd color. It's a stupid jacket.

    That thing is an atrocity. And I like different takes on classic clothing. Don't waste $450 bucks bro. That's two seasons of no money to buy anything especially when all the sick deals are going to happen semi annually in the summer, you'll hate yourself. Hope this helps.

    And I really see this thing only being worn ever so often. You can't even justify the purchase with use.

    Ech. No. Please, for the love of all things Dappered, don't buy that.
