Recent purchases - Part II - Page 2266

Yeah. It was a little pricey so I might end up returning, but I've been looking for this one for years

Need opinions regarding a recent purchase (Our Legacy):

I sized up from 48 to 50, and while the shoulders fit great, the body is a bit large.

Here's what it looks like worn regularly (not waywt) --

I'm not really sure how OL is ideally supposed to fit but I'm not too fond of the fit right now, as it sort of balloons around my hips (more apparent with my arms up). Keep / alter / flip?

(In regards to that last option, if you're a 48 and have $100 or so, PM me smile.gif

I bought one of the F/W wool blazers and had issues with fit as well. I wanted to wear mine more as a piece of outerwear, so I sized up to a 52. Chest fit well, but was too big everywhere else. I exchanged it for a 50, and while it looks really good, the armholes juuuuust high enough that I've only worn it a couple times. Probably gonna be listing soon.

Have the sides taken in or return it. It's always better to pay to take something in than suffer a garment that's too tight in the shoulders/chest.

this is the drksdhw repro no? Wouldn't put it past MyHabit to mistag, but was too pricey for me and I didn't look too closely. IIRC The original was FW08 mainline in moleskin and had buttons instead of snaps.

 

Great pickup regardless, sure I'll be kicking myself for passing come next fall

The Margiela 5-zip (I think that the official name is the Rider, or the single rider) seems to be a pretty easy fit for anyone. I mean, there are some stupid ways to style it (see Mr. Porter), but I mean, how hard is it to put on a tee and a pair of jeans?

Cheers,

Fok.

It is, and the FW08 was the real grail for me. Doubt I could find one in wearable condition at this point, really regret passing on it a couple times in the supermarket.

And I agree with fok, the 5-zip doesn't seem like it'd be especially hard to pull off, it's just a moto jacket with a cool zip detail at the end of the day...

I don't know about earlier iterations, but mine actually says "5-zip jacket" on the tag.

I have the current pre-S/S '13 5 zip and, unless I didn't look in the right place or simply forgot about seeing it, didn't see any tag inside that said "5-zip" anywhere. IIRC mine is from line 14.

Mine is a limited edition which is why it has that tag.  It's on the left-side inside pocket.

Everyone here kept calling it the rider or some shit a few years ago and I had to constantly correct them to 5 zip. Nice to see my dedication paid off.

KJ, that makes sense.
