The geo still looks subdued with the collar down though.
If you want a Rick's jacket instead of the geo, act fast: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rick-Owens-Black-Lambskin-Leather-Jacket-/291122301311?_trksid=p2054897.l4275
Rick Owens customer service continues to be absolutely amazing, one of the reasons I love this brand in the first place. Gonna bring my jacket into the store tomorrow and talk with them about it
Just got my hands on a washed calf RO stooges from FW2013. This is the code "LT." Here's a leather I missed in my previous post. It looks like RO put out like 10 fucking stooges last season, lol. I've already counted 3-4 that I missed.
The leather is a solid mid-weight. It's extremely matte and has a firm but soft feel to it. Rubbing your hand along the surface when its laid flat almost feels like the smoothness of a chalkboard. The leather isn't very thick, but surprisingly firm and crisp. I'm pretty impressed. Under certain lights, the leather almost looks slightly blistered, though it isn't at all.
Here's a high neck Intarsia in the same leather from FW12:
another jacket in the same:
I'm pretty damn pleased overall with this leather.
DO NOT CUT IT !
stylistically it looks nicer with the leather collar covering the nape of your head; it has this organic shape that's also seen in the extra volume at the elbow of the sleeves. That's why you pay the premium for dick. Functionally it will keep your head/neck area warmer during the cold weather. Who cares if it looks like an extra foreskin. That's why they call it Dick Ovens right. teh girls dig the extra foreskin am I right?
