Google astars on sale or closeout.

I just found that same jacket on another site on closeout for $279, that doesn't seem like too bad a deal at all, especially since I just found some the other day selling for almost $400.

I'm also liking this one here...
Alpinestars Rod Leather Jacket - RevZilla



That's selling for $249

Haven't heard anything about their zippers.but yeah, their super high end stuff has always been made in Italy, and the prices for that stuff is effin astronomical imo. If you wanna check out some really nice stuff check out some rs taichi. It's really high end quality shit, forcheaper than the big names.

Maybe I'm looking at the wrong sites or something, but everything I just checked out for RS taichi is well over $400. I'm trying to not break the bank, but I really didn't think that sub $300 for a closeout A-star jacket is that bad a price, is it? It retails for over $450 and it's gotten good reviews.

yeah,the suggested retail price isn't cheap. but from doing some searching a while back I found some on ebay for less than 300. you just gotta look around.

I tried, but didn't realize they didn't have my size, only small and XXL



Think I may go with the first one I posted, the JD-1. $279 for that on a couple sites seems fair enough

Yeah I've been browsing all morning. I don't have an ebay account but everywhere else I can't find any leather jackets for under $400 by them
