Bombers look stupid if they're skin tight. It will probably be too tight on you.

Was about to order a TOJ band collar, but ended up with buying a Attachment band collar instead.

Attachment Grey Goatskin Band Collar Leather

True

mellow's measurements are:

"shoulder to shoulder: 17.5 inches
pit to pit:18.5/19
sleeve to cuff: 25
length: 23 inches"

I'm generally a small in most brands, M in BoO, and although mellowfellow says that the Phillip Lim runs TTS, the measurements look really tight to me.

My s2s is about 17.5", and my p2p" is about 19" or so. So by the measurements, it looks like the jacket will be skin-tight.

Additionally, compared to ToJs of comparable shoulder width, it looks like the p2p is a lot more constricting on the Lim (ToJs of 17" shoulders have 20" p2p).

Any idea if this piece will fit me? Any help would be appreciated.


those measurements seem about right for true to size 38" chest, but like someone said above bomber jackets look real bad when they are tight.

you sound like you're a 36" chest or a 46. so it will probably be alright.
i'd personally pass on it though, ignoring the label the design elements are a little off.

why do people keep buying TOJ leathers here? like praising black scissors...

re: hangers for outerwear

I found some wide shouldered, velvet covered hangers on Ebay that match my shoulder measurement almost perfectly. I don't have a link and they weren't a mass produced item, but there are many options available on Ebay and you can message sellers to get s2s measurements.

Depth-wise though, is your wide enough on the ends? I'm considering one of these with wider and more rounded edge.

Mine looks like that^ It's Monler Gamme Bleu but the SA at Barneys gave me it with my BoO because she said it was the best they had. Also gave me a MGB cloth bag but I usually don't use that

^^ Yep, that's what I use for my leathers + other outerwear. Here's a great/cheap source for them: http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Deluxe-Wide-...item4cedfef8cf

What do you wear it with I guess?

i know there are a lot of strong feelings for the brand but at $700 why not just get a rick leather off of gilt for $1000. there were a couple rick sales now.

i just don't like brands that do a majority of their business through word of mouth and forum adverts. Same thing with any vendors on ls1tech or any other forum.

forum based services tend to exclude anyone who doesn't follow their exact ideal.

First of all, Rick rarely goes one sale for $1k or less, especially brand new. If you saw the Gilt sale, they didn't have a full size run of each jacket so it isn't as easy as you say to find RO on sale for less than $1k. That Gilt sale was the 2nd one I saw for Rick and the first one sucked badly, they only had one leather on sale.

Second, Rick Owens and ToJ have completely different aesthetics.

Third, ToJ is practically m2m.

Yeah, ToJ and RO are completely 2 different styles.

4th, ToJ is better quality than RO

Third, ToJ is practically m2m. ... most jackets hovered around there, but you could get pleanty of jakcets ranging from a MMM 5 zip to a used CCP jacket on ebay for the price of an TOJ leather, not to mention resaleablity and it would age much nicer. 20 years from now, when TOJ is a vague memory (or remembered as a second source of income for a guy on a forum who managed to source a small production at a local shop) that vintage rick owens leather would look just as nice as the ay you bought it
