im looking through the Raf/Mapplethorpe stuff and not even looking to buy, but what will have the most value in a few years
i will say all his stuff feels mad nice in person, it's made to a high standard. things like the trims, the labels are all thought about which is nice.
also dont fuck with the quilted stuff, just ugly tbh.
