to add to that, the silk/viscose tees are much, much better for summer.

when you start sweating in the cotton tees, you can expect them to stick to your body, and develop obvious sweat pools.

with the silk/viscose tees, they'll not stick to your body, and they won't show your sweat.

a factor / advantage i wasn't aware of until the crazy 40 degree weather in Paris last June.

Interesting. Thanks for the discussion!

I find it hard to achieve that layered look with the double layer tees. The tee has to be skin tight but it always starts to sag within the hour of wear.

 

Also, has anyone ever seen the size and "made in italy" engravings on the side of the boots in black ink instead of white?

I got double layer tee which i posted photo of earlier, i like it but only thing is it makes me heat up real quick so i only wear it in colder days.

 

QQ, Ramones how do they fit? TTS? I have Margiela 43, Lanvin 42, Nike US 10

How much do the leather jackets stretch and mold to your body? I tried on a FW15 blistered lamb Mollino in 48EU recently. I could juuuuuust zip it up completely wearing a normal gauge knit underneath, but there was virtually no room in the armholes/triceps area. Size 50 felt better in the arm/tricep area, but the length was a little longer than I like. If I go with a size 48, will it eventually loosen up a little?

multiple factors depend on that imo.
1. type of leather - lamb stretches more than calf
2. size/fit - is it tight where you stretch the leather a little or are you at point of ripping it, this makes a difference.
3. treatment of leather - the more fragile the more likely for bad effects

hope that helps.

FWIW - i would never own/keep a jacket i can barely fit into hoping it would stretch. its like buying a shoe that doesn't fit and is uncomfortable. maybe eventually it will stretch but who has time for that crap.

lamb seems to stretch a full size. my 54s now fit like 56s. calf stretches more to mold to you but it won't magically zip just with heavy wear IME

Thanks guys -- very helpful info. Do the Intarsia or the Bauhaus fit differently from the Mollino?

post #1526 of 2332
depends more on the jacket than the leather but I've owned or own all three i'd say the diagonal zip makes the mollino and bauhaus tighter than the intarsia

Thanks again. The stockists in my area only carry the Molino, so this is very helpful.

i'd size up on the mollino. what kind of leather?
post #1529 of 2332

It was blistered lamb from FW2015. I was concerned about possible ripping, as the leather seemed very delicate.
