Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 587

post #8791 of 11022

After trying the Bauhaus in both 48 and 50, I've come to the sad conclusion that the fit just isn't for me. Sleeves were too long and tight in biceps on 48, and 50 was too long in body. I don't know much about leather, but the washed lamb did seem really flimsy too. The pockets also never lay flat, but probably that's due to my waist/height. 

 

Still don't want to give up on Rick though. Chaos, maybe I'll race you for that Intarsia.

Does anyone have a recent seasons 5zip? I asked the MMM store in Milan for measurements of size 44, this is what they told me:

Shoulder 44 cm (17.3 inch)

Waist Circumference 96 cm (37.8 inch)

Back Length 62 cm (24.4 inch)

Chest Circumference 102 cm (40.2 inch)

Sleeve Length 86 cm (33.9 inch)

Seems huge for a 44/XS. Can anyone confirm this?

So I received an MMM 5-zip in the mail that I won off of eBay and I'm having some doubts as to it being real or not. This seems like an appropriate thread to ask about it - if not, please direct me to another thread where it is.


It was originally beige, but was dyed a dark brown. So I'm not sure if that's the reason why it feels really weird of leather, almost pleather like. There's also no real leather smell either. Since it's calf, I know it's not supposed to feel as soft/smooth/supple as lambskin, but from what I remember compared to the calfskin black 5zip I tried on at a Barney's once, this isn't anywhere near as soft/smooth either. But again, could be due to the dye, so I'm not sure.

Would take it to a department store and ask, but there's no high end store that carries MMM here as far as I know. Was thinking perhaps a cobbler would be of some help?

I really appreciate all the help you guys can give!

looks real to me are there holes in the underarms

if it's not real, it's a damn good fake. all the mmm stuff (staff international tag, the way the logo is stitched, etc) is present, and the "innards" look exactly like a 5-zip i handled a while ago

@Julien - there are no holes.

Thanks for making me feel at ease, guys. Seems the dyeing just messed with the texture a bit. Was thinking about dyeing over it with black though.

How do you even die a leather jacket, do you do it yourself?

 

Also, has anyone made alterations to a leather jacket, and know of a place online I could send one?

 

What type of leather and season is this jacket from?

I've got this same jacket, it's calf and I believe it's last year's version.

Hows it fit seems to run small for the size?

post #8805 of 11022

I'm 5'11 with a 39 in. chest and the size 50 fits me perfectly.  Lengths are great for both the body and the sleeves and the sleeves aren't too baggy like they were for that guy a couple pages back.
