Would you rather have this USD10K Saint Laurent jacket or a place to live?
A jacket this stylish might change your priorities.

Congratulations, young go-hard. You just made the deal of a lifetime at the kind of job Shia LeBeouf had in that shitty Wall Street sequel. And because #MoneyNeverSleeps, you need something seriously luxurious to wear when you get out of work at 11.30pm. and the non-existent nocturnal street-style photographers are looking for someone with more flair than Ric.
Luckily, Saint Laurent just dropped this USD10,000 motorcycle jacket on the world.
Sure, it's pricey as hell. But it's also freaking beautiful (in its own punk-meets-designer-fashion kinda way). If you have the disposable income to do so, we could hardly knock you for choosing to add it to your repertoire. It has all of the elements of a great moto jacket—plenty of zippers, slim sleeves, a nicely proportioned lapel—but the patchwork is really what separates it from the pack. (It's also what likely took the price from stratospheric all the way up to astronomical; stitching all those pieces together isn't easy or cheap.)
Sadly, there's a good chance that you (like us) can't go dropping 10 grand on one piece of clothing—not if you want to make rent this month, at least. If you don't want to get evicted for the sake of your wardrobe, here's what we suggest: Take a mental picture of this jacket and channel its rebellious style every time you walk out the door. Best part about that? It's free.
