I used the 2oz black naked calf. It's a smooth grain leather that lighter and doesn't restrict movement too much.

Just got the RO Calf leather Stooges.  WOW


Incredibly heavy leather - super thick... super substantial... super soft.


Size 50 is 21.5" pit to pit, 16.5" shoulders by my measurement. It's fitted on me and I'm 5'11, 175lbs.  


I'll post some pictures of the leather in a second comparing it to the Julius lambskin jacket that I have.

That's a really weird chest to shoulder ratio. Anyway, carry on.

So the RO Calf Stooges this season in size 50 is a 4lbs jacket.  The Julius I have is a thin, dry, lambskin that has a natural shine.  The Calf we've been discussing is thick and a little bit oily to the touch with a matte finish.


Here are the sleeve ends next to each other:


I hope this picture conveys some sense of how thick the leather is on the stooges:


A big difference in grain - the Calf has a much heavier grain than the lamb (as you'd expect)


I'm glad I don't seem to be getting as much "sausage casing" effect as the lambskin stooges I posted pictures of earlier.  I imagine this will stretch a bit in some places but I like the fit in the size.




I've got a better camera and I can take higher quality photos tomorrow when it's sunny if anyone is interested.

Looks much better than the lamb skin one. This to me looks like an ideal ro fit.

Also I don't wanna say you're wrong about the shoulders but 16.5" is usually the shoulder size of an 44 or maybe very slim 46 jacket. Judging by the way it fits basically perfect your shoulders and your weight I find it a little unlikely the shoulders are that small

Seriously one of the best stooges fits I've seen here.


The measurements look pretty consistent w/ other stooges.


Garley - what's your normal size in RO and other brands?

post #11428 of 17132

Here you can see how I'm measuring the shoulders in the front (16-16.5") and the back (16.5-16.75"):



My chest is slim (39-40" actual measurement) but I have broad, athletic shoulders and typically require 17.5-18" shoulders on a blazer.

I get pretty significant shoulder divot in many designers that cut slim suits unless I size up one or two sizes. You can see me in a Rick Owens XL (52) and two SLP size 52 blazers:




Shoulders definitely don't fit on those blazers :(

If I wanted to go with a Hedi Slimane suit, I'd have to go size 54 for shoulders and get the body taken in.

However, when you look at how the Stooges jacket is styled, the shoulder line of the jacket typically lies a bit in from the apex of the shoulder even on the skinny people who model for webstores.

For example: 


Fortunately, in my pictures, the stooges jacket does appear to hit my shoulder closer to on point than that... but looking at the measurements it seems as though it shouldn't.

Took better pictures with my camera instead of my iPhone.

Wouldn't it be better to compare calf against calf?
