    if you oil those with some sort of a leather oil, they'll darken up in a cool way.

    I've only ever tried the flight bomber, but it fit pretty typically for Rick jackets. High arm holes, really slim, etc. Wider in the body like @thekunk07 said, but the waistband was really snug when I zipped it up

    yup, this is pretty much it!

    as such, i would typically recommend you size up one from your "true size".

    or, just take your normal Rick size [which is typically one up from your true size, but sometimes more for leathers].



    more or less, yes.

    I'd also add that it depends on your body type, too. For any of the Rick stuff I've tried on, a 48 (my usual size) has been totally fine. But, I'm only a 48 because of my shoulder width - I'm really slim (46 to even a 44 in the chest/waist), so I found that I can still move around comfortably. I recognize that this isn't a common case, but it's definitely something to keep in mind.

    Spence has some pretty insane deals on Rick Owens right now, up to 75% off, although lots has been cleared out by now:
    http://www.spenceclothing.com/store/sc.1/st.0#grid

    Further 10% off with code RW75PETLD

    Managed to get a few basics in my size, pretty happy.

    Any idea what season my intarsia is from? I thought it was from crust, but after comparing the composition and ribbing of the sleeves (it's more of a jersey material) to to pictures of others from crust that I found online, I'm not so sure anymore. The product code is 4761 LP. It has RY zips.

    How many variations do the Rick Owens DRKSHDW Ramones come in in terms of materials?

    Mesh, canvas, waxed?

    changes every season, always at least three variations though.

    can't remember the others for ss16, ignore all the weird ones, but there's canvas & waxed canvas this time around [and the non-waxed canvas come in an option with the cyclops embroidery on them].

    Waxed canvas is where it's at, worn the hell out of mine over the past couple of years and they're still holding up nicely.

    yup, mine too [vegan sneaks, not that it makes a difference].

    the waxed canvas is a bit more expensive, but definitely my fave.

    I just got the calf intarsia jacket. It's kind of stiff , will the calf break in over time?
    Fit is great, but the stiff stacks on the arms bother me (they're all over the place and doesn't stack like lamb leather does).
    Also questioning the YKK zippers, did rick use it? I thought he exclusively used raccagni zippers.The version I got is SS14.

    Calf should break in like any other leather, but it will probably take longer than something like lamb. I can't speak to the specific leathers used by Rick, though. I think he started using YKK zippers in like 2013?
