Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 845

post #12661 of 16653
Thank you very much for those who have weighed in, I really appreciate it.

I am travelling to Chicago a few weeks from now, so I will try to poke around some of the usual suspects to see if I can find anything. It is usually stocked by Saks... and Neiman... any others in particular?

Again, thank you for the information.

I forget if they get boxier or other way around as they get more recent. if I had to guess, I'd go with boxier

Depends on what you mean by boxier, I mean Dior Homme and now SLP are cut in a box shape, just a very thin box. The old jackets are drapier and the new ones have a more current slim fit, meaning they're slim all over. Mine is deer (produced for A/W 06) and it is def different from the current offerings (I'm usually a 46 although with Margiela I oscillate between 44 and 46 and the 5zip is a 44, in the new ones I'd probably prefer a 46 so tts).

They stopped using MRS on the men's jackets in 2005 IIRC, but I found this photo from 2012(?). Did they bring MRS zips back at some point for women's jackets?


Women's still have the big MRS...

I have a white rick leather, it doesn't really get dirty.

Any idea why they're used for women's and not for men's?

Barney's is probably your best "big store" bet. I don't know enough about boutiques in the Chicago area for other suggestions.

So I'll just buy like a hundred of them, wear each once then donate to charity! biggrin.gif Read on for some entertaining weirdness about Pretty Boy Floyd's cash-inspired OCD habits.

Do people generally prefer lambskin or calfskin? Which is considered higher quality?

calf is normally stiffer and thicker, you can have thick lamb although it won't be as stiff.

Calf is basically raw denim & lamb is like soft wash denim.

 

Depends what you like (rigidity).

Lambskin is generally lighter, has better drape, and is easier to wear

 

I own a calf leather, and I love it. However, it's very heavy and had an odd drape at first. It wasn't uncomfortable, but it took over 3 months to break it in
