    Melanzana Microgrid Hoodie - Large Black

    Piece is sold


    I got a new piece from our friend Micol at FRS and don’t need this anymore. They sell for dumb amounts on ebay and it looks like their store is still closed.

    Size large, black, always hang dried, no rips, no holes, etc. Couple years old, worn mainly as a casual piece.

    $50 shipped to the CONUS.

    Hit me up at charlie at charlie suthard dot com

    Store is "open" -- i.e. they are operating. But only on a lottery basis. I "won" (seems like most people get chance to buy within a month or so) which made a couple of friends happy since i have plenty of FRS pieces.

    Damn it's a lottery now? I passed through leadville a few times over the summer/fall and it was just a huge line around the block but the store was open to a few people at a time. I had to deal with the whole thing once since my sister really wanted a hoodie and it was insufferable. There were people who brought yoga mats and were instagramming themselves doing yoga in line. Painful.

    Jesus Christ that is brutal. Itís become somewhat of an influencer brand and obviously thatís not the companyís fault. I moved to the vail valley in 2015 and I remember buying one on a random Saturday and maybe 3 other shoppers were in the store and inventory was aplenty! How the times have changed...

    Maybe it'll chill out a bit once more people are allowed in the store at a time but I don't think so. Going to Leadville to buy a melly seems to be an influencer activity now. Props to them for making the whole exclusivity thing work I guess

    I'd rather just pay the 50 dollar premium on ebay....
    90% of skiing is just looking cool

    Bought my first one in 2015 too, The thing I remember best is how over stocked the store was. They were even willing to make alterations if you needed them at the time... how things have changed, but I still wear that same Melly with it's burn holes all the same. They are damn fine midlayers.

    Considering their influencer status now $50 seems like a good deal imo. Free bump.
