Everyone remembers the first time they saw this leather and I clearly remember gasping and saying out loud “God damn that is a nice blue leather rider” and I assumed it was undercover or some other designer of grail leathers.
However I really couldn’t find it on yjp or other places so I decided to go the source himself, InternetFlexin. I asked him if it was a rare Undercover piece and his reply made me both shocked and envious, “nah man its just an old vintage rider just got really really lucky paid basically nothing for it and it fits perfect. Easily my most worn and treasured piece of clothing.”
I though to myself “what does this motherfucker mean by ‘paid basically nothing’?” Well I asked him and his reply will probably make you jealous too. “I paid like $70 i think i can’t really remember it was a few years ago… I was searching everyday for months “blue leather rider” and comparing measurements with my dream fit. The leather is really really thick tho its taken until recently to soften up but the thing will last forever no doubt. #apocalypsewear ”
This is definitely one of those rare vintage finds that I would classify as a shiny legendary pokemon. Its amazing how humble flexin is with this piece as he doesn’t blog about it much or wave it in our faces like I would. I feel like we are blessed with his presence as he has found a true grail for $70. I wonder how many of you will start checking ebay everyday with the search term “blue leather rider”.
