As the temperatures begin to cool I’ve finally started to put together what I might like to pick up for fall. The most expensive clothing item so far that I’ve been toying with is the classic draped Rick Owens leather jacket…yes, the one that’s been around for years and years that everybody famous has. Seriously, if you do a Google Image Search for “Rick Owens Celebrity Jacket” you’ll get an idea of what I mean.
As much as I have loved this jacket over the years I can’t help but wish that I had purchased it years ago. I remember right after college already one of my friends was lusting after this jacket and finally bought it..and that was around ten years ago! It may just be my imagination, but I really think that the price back down was something like $1000…and it’s more than double now. Plus, there’s also something a little dampening about being so late to hop on the Rick Owens jacket bandwagon…I’m kicking myself for not buying it years ago! I could have looked so much cooler and been nodding to goths on the street for years.
So now I’m asking…how do you all feel about buying items “late in the game”? After a few price increases and perhaps a lot of exposure…does that lapsed time ever serve to influence you not to buy an item? Or are you immune to these superficial aspects, and just buy what you like without a care? Tell me your ways!
PS: Anybody actually have this jacket, and care to chime in on whether I need to get it? I’m also considering a Vince jacket at less than half the price!
