Thanks man! Actually only the ramones and leather jacket are recent kops. I bought the waxed jacket a couple of years ago and love it to date.

Do you guys condition your mainline ramones?

 

Also, if I'm generally a size 1 in Julius_7 bottoms (Glitch fw14 knit denim, Prism ss15 cargos), would I be a size 29 in RO memphis (ss15 or fw16)?

Had one briefly. Brushed calf, which I think was 2014. Mine was a 48, and it fit pretty true to what you'd expect from Rick in the body, but was smaller than I expected in the shoulders. The biggest problem for me wasn't the width of the shoulders, but the depth...I've got a decently athletic build and it was fitted but workable in the body but skintight through the delts and upper chest, and I couldn't button up the top button.

 

I've owned a DRKSHDW leather-sleeved Slave jacket and a denim worker, both in M. The leather sleeves on the Slave jacket fit about the same as the sleeves on the calf worker. And the denim worker just fit bigger everywhere...you'd expect it to be bigger (if Rick 48 = S), but it felt like a bit more than a size bigger to me.

 

For another comparison, I've got a recent blistered lamb Stooges in 48 that fits tight but well, and I found that the calf worker in a 48 fit a little bit tighter in the shoulders, upper chest, and upper arms, and a little bit looser in the body.

 

With all that, if I had to guess, I'd say it's probably pretty close, if not identical, to the same pattern as a denim worker, though it seems like it fits a bit smaller because the material's thicker (and so a lamb worker might fit more or less the same).

 

Design-wise, leather workers are my favorite Rick jackets by a good stretch, but the pattern just doesn't really work for me. A 48 is too tight in the shoulders / upper arms, and a 50 would probably be too big in the body. I'd love to get my hands on a lamb worker, though, because I think that might work.

 

I dunno if any of that made sense. I'd take some pics, but I don't have it anymore.

makes sense chest and delts are always the issue for me

Hi, first post in this thread. I'm looking to buy my first RO dark brown leather jacket. Between intarsia/mollino/bauhaus which one would you recommend in terms of design/fit/patina? Thanks

If you're going to spend $2k on a leather jacket, shouldn't you at least have an idea of which design you like?

Pick the one that appeals to you and your style...

Personally I prefer the intarsia or mollina but I'd like to hear some thoughts on the fit for the both of them. Don't have a store near me to try directly so If you guys can help that would be awesome

the fit varies season to season, depending on leather

would strongly recommend ordering all the sizes you want, trying them on, and returning the ones that you don't like.

don't spend $2k based on internet advice.

Do Ramones ever come in half on the canvas materials seems it doesn't exist... Only in leather?

What kind of fabric is MUR, and between MUR and cotton, which fabric would be best for memphis pod shorts?

Also if I'm an S in mainline bomber and intarsia, would I be an XS or and S in the (unstable) double layer tee?

I was looking for a Rick Spring Summer bomber jacket, I didn't have £900 to spend on a brand new one so I picked up a second hand piece.

I used to work in a multi brand store that sold Rick and I've always been a large in the bombers, so this one I got is obviously oversized as it fits on shoulders and almost to small on the chest but the arms are surprisingly big I always struggled with the forearms and upper arms.



Sides


Back is the weird part


Anybody recognise this piece? Not sure how I feel about it as of yet and I'm thinking about dying it black? Code on it is RU8770 and the fabric is a cotton wool and spandex blend.
