    Urgent - should I cop APC varsity?

    Yo

    I came across this APC bomber in SF today for $395 which works out about 250






    Should I cop as a SS jacket considering I already have the AS Keaton jacket?




    I think they are kinda similar but they do tick a different style box in a way...

    What are your thoughts? xox

    APC RRP is like $800 if that makes a diff

    Don't I remember you saying you were tired of the Keaton jacket, and trying to sell/trade it? If so, I probably wouldn't get another jacket in a similar style...

    It looks great, but that price tag! Ouch! Not quite sure it looks special or distinctive enough, especially when you just know ASOS will bring out 20 similar ones for 60. Just imagine all the other bits you could get for 250...

    Same from me. It's a cool jacket, and is a different shape from the Keaton, but not distinctive enough for the price tag. Unless you're minted of course. In which case, go for it.

    Recon it would be a decent buy. Granted ASOS will do a similar version for sure, but I know you don't do faux leather so go for it. The price is pretty good as well.

    For that price, I would definitely cop the APC. And sell off the AS. Job done!

    Definitely don't get rid of the Keaton, love mine!
    The APC is nice but there's that many people wearing cheaper versions of it that aren't massively different so people may not appreciate how good it is when they see it imo
