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.
***The Official Rick Owens Thread*** - Page 98
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
