Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 753

i think it looks pretty cool if not a leaning too small.

didn't you get a chance to try on a 52? if 52 was not flattering or better, then, stick with a 50

i have a feeling first one may break in better.

i think if i'd ever get a black leather it'd be stooges or the like. now if i can grow my arms another 2-3" in length

I have a site bookmarked to pick up a thick calf from FW14. Do you think size 50 is the right choice?

 

 

 

I think the size 50 is perfect, both on the shoulders and sleeve lengths.

50 is tight but looks good, agree with toast that out of those 2 posted the oiled calf looks/fits better, the lamb looks a bit tighter in the shoulders/arms
and I think the 52 is gonna be ridiculously long in the arms so I wouldn't even bother

Those are both a size too small at least. You're a big guy, buying an expensive leather. Don't try for the sausage casing look.

agreed

I don't think sleeve length always increases between sizes. Body length sometimes does though, and a bit tight closed often makes it look better open. That said, I don't think oiled calf stretches much, so you should try a 52 before making the purchase. Sometimes I find the Rick tightness a "good armholes-high-but-I'm-super-jacked" tight :embar:

I appreciate the feedback and I think you might be right.  However, I plan to buy the full grain calf leather (LCW this season) and I think it will stretch a fair amount and I'd like it to still have a slim appearance.  

 

Should I anticipate the stretch and buy tight or size up to begin with?

Go w/ the 50. RO's stretches out about .5-1 inch int he chest for me. I think it would look sloppy unzipped if you went up a size as well.

How tall are you and how slim do the arms fit? I've been thinking about that guy in a Med.

Why didn't you go for a 118 instead if you wanted something shorter?

If it stretches it will be in useful ways- don't size down and wait for stretch, buy the right size and let it stretch where needed. This isn't APC sizing.
post #11291 of 16653
I like the fit on the oiled calf but sizing up shouldn't be that bad, stooges actually look great worn a bit loose too.

My lamb rick didn't stretch out at all and a jacket that's too tight sucks. Go with the 52.  Sleeves aren't even that long and it looks like you can't flex the biceps.

 

Plus even if the leather did stretch the lining wont.

terrible advice.

a rick jacket will stretch quite a bit, at least an inch for lamb.

if you don't want to wear a tight jacket, why the hell are you buying rick? go buy damir doma or a belstaff or even a schott.

those rick jackets fit you perfectly; precisely the way rick is meant to fit. if you want to oversize it, as many of the folks here probably do, why bother spending the money at all? what's the point?

a leather jacket is like raw denim. it will mold to fit you in the right places.

that is, if you wear it regularly. just like you wouldn't buy raw denim a size big, because that would miss the point entirely, so you shouldn't buy a leather a size big. especially not a lamb leather jacket; especially not a rick owens lamb leather jacket.

don't let the internet dress you. let the designers do the work, and listen to the clothing.

If thick calf is indeed really thick it won't stretch as easily just keep in mind.
post #11295 of 16653
agree with sticking to the 50, rick should fit slim imho
the sleeves on those 50's already look a bit long and theres no ribbing to keep them in place
so embrace the sausage casing or if you want a relaxed leather then buy something else
