Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 567

post #8491 of 12873
So is it generally advisable to size up one on current season Rick leathers? I'm normally a 48 in euro brands, but my RO Worker leather is a 50 and is pretty tight. Looking at getting a stooges.

I love my jacket, but have been searching for a black one with silver zips forever and figured the best thing to do would be to put silver zips on mine. We'll see what my tailor says.

this is gonna be a long shot, but does anyone know the YKK excella zipper teeth color that margiela uses on the current 5 zips (eg. artishard's new burgundy horse one)?

it's a dark, but still very shiny silver (not dull gunmetal and not bright shiny regular silver).

color codes I have are P, C5 (I think these are both bright shiny silver), H6 (I think this is dull/matt gunmetal..not shiny enough), V6 (this might be it, it's called Black Nickel..but looks too dark in photos online)

hey Krish the Fish, i'm pretty sure that the zippers you want are 8SGW (excella #8 two-way). good luck choosing the color (i think you'd want P or C5)

I think the different jackets have slightly different fits with RO, but I'd size one up at least if I were you mate! The one I just got was sized up one from what I normally go with.

As I went through the trial and error of owning my first RO, and had the help of others here, let me repeat that in most cases you should size up from your normal size due to the slimmer cut and high armhole. More so, the arms are ridiculously long, so, unless the sleeves are ribbed, as Mr. Moo said, even sizing up will not warrant a great fit because the cuffs will end up covering your entire hand

FWIW I have yet to get my hands on my normal size in the non-ribbed sleeve type leathers like Stooges though I did try the Bauhaus cut, but in a size 50 where the sleeves were too long. Perhaps a 48 would have fit better. YMMV

FYI: Usually a 48 but wear a size 50 in the Intarsia. Feels comfortable, but anything more than a tee would be ridiculously tight borderline unwearable. I fancy one of those L/S RO knits or tees would be fine though.

I have only owned one leather jacket: from Wested in London styled after the Indiana Jones one. The best I have ever seen was a black alligator one; unfortunately I didn't take a pic.

I took a trip and whilst in the car forgot to take off my RO Intarsia.

I was fighting with the jacket trying to get it off while seated. I could not for the life of me get my arm out of the sleeve. Was sort of embarrassing and awkward.

I ended up pretty heated for a bit through the first 30 minute or so of the drive. The jacket did not want to come off.

I learned to plan your trip accordingly, or take the jacket off before entering the car. Safe to say the leather is decently warm though.

YMMV

Hey guys, hoping to get some fit opinions on this jacket.  I can't decide if the sleeves fit me or not.  I know they are a bit long and I think they might be a bit baggy from elbow to shoulder.

 

I'm not sure if I should wear it as is, try to get some alterations done, or get return it all together...

 

Thanks!

i think it fits you fine, when the sleeves are unzipped then they look a bit long but zipped up all good

I don't mean this in a mean way at all – it's totally irrelevant – but I love the juxtaposition of the rick jacket with the "living with grandparents" bathroom

Yeah, I definitely see what you mean mate! Overall I'm pleased with the fit, but if you have shorter arms then it definitely makes it a bit harder I can imagine. How did the rest of the jacket fit with the Bauhaus cut at size 50?

my sense of a lot of people here is that they make sacrifices elsewhere to afford this shit

and grandma's blueberry pancakes more than make up for the social stigma

I know a lot of the conversation on this thread is focused on higher-end brands, but does anyone have any sincere comments on, or experience with, All Saints Spitalfields leather jackets?

 

I'm looking at this one: http://www.us.allsaints.com/men/leather-jackets/allsaints-kushiro-leather-biker-jacket/?colour=5&category=9
