    ^ any red leather jacket immediately makes me think of Michael Jackson's Thriller... but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It looks great... just don't think I could rock that too often. :happy:

    I think it looks really good. Fit is perfect. It might be weird if you can see the belt though.

    It fits!!! Never thought I'd be wearing an xs, but that's Rick sizing for you. Been looking for this for a long time now, and I'm not disappointed. It really is the perfect everyday leather. Quality is on point, really does feel more substantial than recent stuff I've handled.

    For those who've owned this piece, is there any way to get the collar to stay more upright when unzipped? Right now it seems like it works best either fully zipped (a la kunk) or folded down.

    In case the huge pockets inside isn't big enough for you, Rick offers you a leather with giant pockets outside too.

    it's actually kind of cool, but the fit in the shoulders and torso is ridiculous... I don't believe he could even scratch his balls with that jacket on.

    thanks for the kind words

    tagged size is 46

    back length is 64.5 cm. Did not measure front

    would have been nicer if it was like 67-68 cm, just like the other 46 scarstitchs'

    You've all seen it, but thought it was worth reposting with the red leather talk.

    How much would it cost to replace a single main zipper on a leather jacket? Providing that I supplied the zipper.

    also where can I get a single riri/lampo zipper?

    I don't own it yet, but my Holy Grail leather jacket will hopefully be mine by the end of 2014!!!

    I've had designed, and have been fitted for a very simple but zippy biker jacket, to be made in the most gorgeous shade of deep purple buttery soft Lambskin.

    It costs a fortune, and I'll have to sacrifice a lot to get it, but together with purple face PBJ jeans or dark indigo jeans and my trade mark light blue, pink or white shirt will be amazing!

    I can't wait to have it, and will of course post pics when I do!:):)

    A decent haberdasher should have zips, no idea about cost though.

    I love leather jackets and collect them, so I'm guessing you'll be talking to me before then:):)
