Mr.Bathing Ape JACQUARD ABC LONG SNOWBOARD GORE WINDSTOPPER JACKET

MR BATHING APE BAPE JACQUARD ABC LONG SNOWBOARD GORE WINDSTOPPER JACKET

So my buddy has just bought this jacket, now I may be wrong but is he not just friggin' insane!!
That's 1100 which i'm guessing is roughly $1500 (?)

Can anyone shed some light on why this item is valued so high, am I missing something or are general consumers just muppets? :dunno::icon_scratch::dizzy:

Thanks

I know, and looks about as warm!

Plus 650 is at almost half price, imagine paying full.

I just don't get it... Never mind

I don't even think it's Goretex. It just says Gore...

Bathing Ape is a high end Japanese streetwear brand. All their stuff is pricey ($90US for a ball cap). Rappers eat this shit up.

its the brand name.

kids buy bape nike air force one look alike with star instead of swoosh for min 300$ us bucks to 1000.

And gear heads. Stuff by bape is usually hard to get, so they retain value secondhand too; buddy of mine used to live in Okinawa, and would make some nice pocketmoney buying bape gear, wearing it for a month or 2 and then flipping it on to the US for a profit

Gore windstopper is not waterproof though; only meant to stop wind haha
