You have a nice jacket, and if it doesn't work for you, I suggest you move it on and keep looking for what you prefer. It should be easy to sell, as gunmetal zips look great on that jacket.

Yeah, I've been thinking about it and I don't think I'll risk it. Plus the more I think about it, the better the gunmetal looks. Less "flashy", more understated I guess.

This is the C/X Brown Front Quarter Horsehide.  However, the C/X Cordovan Front Quarter Horsehide makes an incredible "civvy" A-2 as well!

So today I got my Intarsia today in size 48 in and I have a few questions.

How tight is it supposed to fit? Right now it definitely a bit snug, but not uncomfortable. I don't think I have much room to grow in it though. Also, the leather seems quite supple. How much, if any will it stretch?


As of right now, I have the option of going one size larger and I'm not too sure if I should.

looks like it fits you well, its leather and will stretch a bit but also should be comfortable
post #8484 of 11626

your hands and phone are covering everything, but it looks like you shouldn't size up

Yeah, it's definitely comfortable. There isn't anywhere where it's uncomfortable or anything. It's just a bit snug in the chest and where the armpits are for me for the most part. I could still maybe get a thin sweater/cardigan in if I really wanted to, but then it would definitely be a bit tighter around the armpits, etc.

That's a good point. Sorry about that! Here are some better pictures in better light!

If the armholes are too high, that's an issue with the jacket that sizing up will solve- however, it looks like the rest of the jacket fits spot on, so sizing up would mess wih the rest of he fit. I would not size up, but return if the armholes are not confortable to wear.

High armholes are synonymous with Rick jacket, it is just something you have to get used if you want to wear his leathers. Once you get a hang of it, you really would not even notice it anymore.
post #8489 of 11626
High armholes are a nice feature, allowing for better arm movement without the jacket riding up/moving all over the place. A high arm scythe is a staple of higher end tailored items.

But can also be more uncomfortable. Just pointing out that if they're uncomfortable, they won't be fixed by wearing it in.
