Mr bathing ape snowboard outerwear

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?

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

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

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
