post #11266 of 16655

Can anyone help me out with Rick Owens sizing? I'm interested in a blistered lamb Intarsia. It'll be my first Rick Owens so I'm unsure of sizing... I'm a size 38 for most jackets like the MMM 5 Zips. Go true to size and get a 38?

get measurements, rick varies from season to season

Damn, well thanks anyways. Guess I may just order a 38 and a 40 to try out best fit and return the other.

 

It'll finally be my first Rick Owens, but what's everyone's thoughts on this white blistered lambskin Intarsia? I've always thought I'd end up getting a funnel neck Intarsia in black, but I must have missed them all on sale this time around.

You'll need a 40 in the intarsia.

 

Just wait for the black high neck intarsia. Not really a great price for a white blistered lamb, probably the second worst leather rick uses after the glass ice one. Plus f/w leathers are usually thicker than the spring ones.

I'll definitely wait around for a black high neck intarsia, but that's really disappointing to hear about the white lambskin. If you don't mind me asking, what's so awful about it? I thought Rick Owens leathers were all quality. frown.gif

Nah, honestly about half of the leathers Rick users are pretty sub-standard. There's definitely hits and misses - I wouldn't buy without knowing what you're getting. The glass ice mentioned above is probably the worst offender. They're "cheap" at around $2000 but in no way feel like a $2000 jacket should
post #11273 of 16655
Is glass ice the all white one?

And ya, I did end up caving and ordering the blistered white lambskin before you guys posted your warnings. Figured $1100 for a new Rick Owens was a steal. frown.gif

Can still return it though.



What do you guys think of Balmain? I'm liking the double rider with the rawhide lacing, but I did just buy a Saint Laurent double rider, so I'm thinking it's overkill for another so soon. Are they at least similar in quality to the SLP?
post #11274 of 16655

Got my 626 a week ago, I really like it overall for $600 but I really wish it wasn't 26", I have no idea why Schott doesn't just make a 624. I can shorten it but it'd have to be by at least 3.5" to cut just above the belt loops. 

 

post #11275 of 16655

Just thought I'd post a headsup that I'm flogging another 626 if anyone's interested. :3

 

My Context CXL 113 just came in the other day, sick ass d-pocket natural horse. I'll get some shots up soonish

post #11276 of 16655
I got a black 626 size M up for grabs
post #11277 of 16655

You guys have me nervous about Rick Owens now... any thoughts on the quality/style of these jackets? I can't seem to find them on Rick Owen's webstore so I'm thinking they may be from a while back.

Is there a single jacket style/design from Rick Owens that's the most popular/recommended that I should keep an eye out for? Thinking I may just want to save my money for the next sale in December.

After the Vanson/Styleforum/Thurston MTOs are done, who would be down for a Vanson Varsity MTO?

What's a Vanson Varsity?
post #11280 of 16655

I'm planning on buying a stooges from this season but I'm looking for some feedback.  I'm planning on buying tight with the expectation that the leather will stretch a bit.  I have an athletic build and fairly wide shoulders.  These are both size 50 - first one is oiled calf from SS13, second is lamb from FW14. I have a site bookmarked to pick up a thick calf from FW14. Do you think size 50 is the right choice?
