Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 577

Not every RO jacket is styled over the top. A simple moto Intarsia will pair with a lot of clothes and is easy to pull off.

I've got a leather cleaning question. I've purchased a RO Milk Geo and my proxy sent me a picture that shows marks on the neck of the jacket. Any advice on how to clean/hide the marks  when I get it? I have saphir renovateur, but I'm not sure if that would be appropriate to use.  I have the option of trying for a refund from the seller, but I don't think it's necessary as long as the rest of the jacket is in good shape. I'm asking my proxy for a couple more pics before proceeding, though.

That Intarsia looks nice too. They had a Mollino too, but not in my size. I think the Mollino might also suit me nicely. Will give that a try if I can find it at Barneys or something.

To dress these up a little, would the smooth look better than the blistered? In most pictures, I'm seeing these worn quite casually. Can anyone point me to good slightly more dressed up pictures with these the Intarsia or Mollino maybe? The Bullet, owing to the hood, I can't picture being dressed up much.

Hey Lokesh,

 

I've got a moto collar nubuck jacket from them. The fit is spot on in an XL size for me. I am 6'3 255lbs. I haven't tried any other models from them, but I am sure there is variance in sizing across models. Right now is not a very good time to find some leather deals. Keep your eyes on the B&S listings, or like others have mentioned, go with TOJ and wait.

^^ good to know about the Vince. If I ever see some on deep discount, maybe I'll bite.

Also, what are the differences generalyll with each new iteration of the MMM 5-zip? Do they switch leathers, change details etc?

I've been looking at pictures of the black 5-zip with the silver zippers and the contrast looks great. Really nice looking jacket. If I get out of work early enough I'll go try one on at Barney's if they have them.

Did they every make the 5-zip in lambskin?

calf and deerskin seem the most popular versions. the fw13/14 calf is very nice IMO, but zippers are gunmetal. i dont think they've made the silver zipper version for a while.
the vince seems to fit your shoulders but the body looks quite boxy on you. the 5 zip has more of a taper and would probably be better, if you can find a small enough size

Thank you. Yeah I noticed the gunmetal zippers when I tried it on. Thy are very subdued which could be good or bad based on preference. I, personally, would prefer the silver I think.

I tried a 34/44 and 36/46, and both fit. 44 was a lot snugger in the body, and arm width too I think? Do the measurements change all over on the MMM on sizing up, or just at the body and waist?

The guy there said he liked both but the 44 looked "sexier" (his words haha). I could only just about tell the difference except when I zipped up, where the 34 was considerably snugger.

What do you guys think?

The 34/44:









And the 36/46:

They both look fine. If you normally wear slim clothes I would stick with the 44, it will only stretch and get more broken in as you wear it. If you tend to wear average fitting clothing, you might want to keep the 36. The 34 also looks a little short, but the 36 looks a little loose in the arms. I'm probably in a similar situation but I ended up sizing up because I wear slim/straight jeans instead of slim/skinny. Hope that helps

Like Fucus said, 44 with 46 length would be perfect. I would go for 46 for the length as you will probably layer.

I tend to own some very slim clothes, as well as some slightly more average simply because when I shop smalls, more often than not, they are still a little bigger on me than I would like, and XS is too small. So I'm at a horribly awkward size with bad proportions which is unfortunate.

If I do buy this, I feel like the 36 would just be an all round safer option. But if the sleeves are baggy/sloppy I feel like I would rather just skip it altogether and look for something else.

I see some older 2008 versions of this for sale in a couple of places. Does anyone know if the sizing has remained consistent?

Also, something I was wondering was how much do these actually stretch? If I bought the 36 and it stretched some more, won't it look even more baggy?

Here is another picture of the 36 showing the sleeves. I think they are too loose unfortunately.

Do they actually have this combination?

Also thanks to everyone helping me so far for being patient and bearing with me. I really appreciate it. I can't do this very easily on my own.

Get the 44 man. That sleeve on the 46 (especially if that's zipped) looks uhoh.gif

And don't zip it up. (I own that 5 zip, and well, it owns)

But if you don't like the slim-ness, then I don't think any of the recent 5-zips will be to your liking. I hear the older ones were boxier in the body though
