    None of those jackets are fully closed so it's impossible to compare the collars.

    Yep, same. If Guidi and MA+ made these jackets then their design and quality control has completely gone off the rails. The companies would crash and burn 'cause nobody would buy that shit at the Guidi and MA+ price points.

    That's ok the fake photos are plenty… but perhaps that other shitty-jacket fan boy would like to have a look. I seem to remember he loves all this kind of bullshit.

    lol.

    It would mean that the designers have completely gone off their rockers. The common factor between Guidi and MA+ jackets is that both take iconic styles, strip them of nearly all ornamentation, and then use the stripped style to explore different things. What those things are differ, and that's where the brands diverge.

    The jackets you showed are a mishmash of details from different iconic stylies, with additional, nonsensical details, piled on. The second might conceivably come from a brand like DSquared or maybe Diesel, but it lacks the humor of those brands. But at least it has some coherence and seems to have been designed by someone relatively sober. The first jacket is terrible by any standard.

    I purchased this at Orvis last winter, but seriously doubt I am ever gonna wear it. Think it was a temporary moment of insanity...

    Just copped a margiela 5 ZIP from MATCHES fashion.

    Bought a size 52. I wear size 42 in suits, 6'2" and 200lbs, will this fit me?

    Yeah, you should be fine. I am a 5'11". a 40 in suits, and 180-185 lbs, but really, lean am about 175 lbs, at my current muscle mass. Unless you are all shoulders and chest and back no legs, (I carry a great deal of my weight in my legs), you should be fine.

    If your talking about Galliano era 5zip, might be slightly short in length and arm length, I'm 180cm and it hits me midbelt.
