Personally, I'd get one, and would like to see it get off the ground.
But they're usually tight in the shoulders, too. As opposed to something that's a bit of a dropped shoulder or just fits looser in general. For example, the jacket Fok posted has way more of a V-shape than most rick jackets besides maybe the shearlings.
I like my Rick a lot but I'm not positive it's the most flattering cut on me.
They have tight shoulders but very high armholes which works with the cut.
Fits the upper body like a glove.
I have an LGI jacket. The leather has actually softened up a lot since I've been wearing it regularly. I was kind of iffy on it at first, but it has grown on me.
I was fifteen minutes early to Rare for dinner. I noticed the “H Lorenzo” sign 100 feet away. I recalled reading the store name on this thread and, therefore, suggested to my wife that we kill the fifteen minutes there. Very impressive store. Unfortunately, fifteen minutes was not nearly enough time to get the full experience; to the contrary, I only scratched the surface (never made it upstairs – apparently, all Kapital). Most of the pieces were far too avant-garde for my particular taste. I looked at a few MA+ jackets. The leather on this MA+ jacket was unreal – like butta:
My wife really dug that jacket.
Conversely, the leather on this jacket was similar to a heavy glad trash bag:
I spent most of my time interacting with this Bison jacket:
Great design and fantastic Bison hide/grain. So I decided to try it on. I told the salesman I am typically a 40-42. He recommended a 54. Lol! I am 6 feet and 175 lbs. I could not zip the jacket closed – in fact, there was at least a couple of inches between the zippers when pulled snug. Moreover, the sleeves were so long that my finger tips were barely visible. The salesman said a 56 would fit me perfectly but, alas, I didn’t have time to test his hypothesis.
The foregoing is likely well known to most here, who are considerably more familiar with these types of jackets. I really liked the design of the Bison jacket and would consider it but for the unworkable fit. Oh well.
Now that I am aware of H Lorenzo, I will go back when I have more time to soak in the full experience. Unfortunately, my wife also likes the store and she too will be returning. Gulp.
