The whole thing looks fairly droopy in that picture. I shouldn't say that it absolutely doesn't work, but in the low-quality bathroom picture you posted, it certainly doesn't appear to. I hope it works out, but when you're talking about tailoring one or more aspect of every purchase you make, it seems to me that you're just buying things in the wrong size.

I think it looks like a fun piece, though, especially with some loose white trousers and a ridiculous 70's shirt. FWIW, I don't think you get any "hate" at all. Snark, sure, but SF has a way of producing snark when advice is seemingly ignored, though.

Feel absolutely free to post more pictures and prove me completely wrong, though - maybe a full body shot when you're not hunching over with your hands in your pockets?

 

I agree with you on pretty much all points, here, except the one on sizing down.  My issue is that I'm a straight 50 in the chest and shoulders, (maybe slightly smaller than average in the shoulders but not enough to throw anything off), but with the exception of most knits and some shirts I usually end up having to chop off an inch or two in the sleeves.  I think if the sleeves are off on something, it will usually exacerbate anything else wrong with the fit, and makes the whole thing come off as sloppy.

 

I guess what I'm saying is that I probably need to spend the $15 at the tailor before posting pics, or else elucidate better than I did above that it needs to be adjusted before I really wear it.   Here's the jacket with the cuffs flipped up inside the sleeves (excuse the bedhead) and in proper daylight:

 

 

 

 

The sleeves are now a little short and look weird without the cuffs but you get the idea.  The way you described is pretty much exactly how I would style it, too.  Also, aviators.

obvious branding like those gucci stripes on that jacket are worse than ed hardy in my opinion.

If you're 42" I would probably go for a 54.. I know if I was 1" larger my 10 Sei 0 Otto would probably be too tight.

 

on mine the upperarms/shoulders are definetely the most restrictive part. If you work out a lot, I´d size up to 54 if not 52 could work but will be VERY fitted, maybe too much so.

 

3-4 months old sz 52 (between 41 and 42 chest, shoulders about the same)

I assume its an older collection f/w, since it was on yoox. (sold out around november)

it has a woolen inner and woolen set ins in the arms.

was kinda a blind buy, since there was nearly no talk about those jackets to be found anywhere .

But I´m pretty happy with it and in europe I would have been able to return for free.

Thanks!

I think they are pretty well done. I like the hardware, despite being no Riri, but some italian (raccagni) TF seems to use them.

The lamb on mine is substantial and feels like it could age well, if the woolen set ins last that long.

 

A few things to dislike.

With woolen inner and inserts in arms it is pretty much f/w bound. I´d prefer arm zips over the woolen inserts.

The collar could have done been better. Closed it works well, but I prefer to wear the jacket open and open it tends to lay down instead of standing.

With all the talk going on yoox has them now at nearly double what I paid not on sale, so it will be much harder to get some blach/grey S/S adequate. shog[1].gif

 

my other leathers have brown tones, which are limited in this regard.

How do the fit of leather pieces from margiela in the 90s contrast from the pieces today?
post #7408 of 11838

The one I've found for sale is a 1999 and in a size 50, I have a current 5-zip in a size 50 that fits pretty well, would the one from 1999 fit similar?

Thanks for the help
post #7410 of 11838

that one looks really short/cropped, but as intended.  19" zipper, prolly 20" in front.  19" P2P also, but that is might be mis-measured, because 19" on a 50? wtf...
