Normally I just read your threads but now I'm in need of some advice.

Soooo heres my deal. I just picked up this seasons RO Globa Bomber in pearl. I convinced myself I wanted it when, what I really wanted was an Intarsia (genius, I know...). Now an Intarsia in the color I want has popped up. So heres my question- I'm typically a 40 chest, the globa is an XL, it fits me well, although it might be considered a little roomy, I know some folks like their RO to fit super snug. The Intarsia is a Large, and I was wondering if A. you guys think it'll even fit, and B. Do we think I should sell the Globa, take the hit, and pick up the Intarsia.



a pre-thanks for not just slaying me for being an idiot.

I think you really want the one you have, and should pm me the details of where you saw the Intarsia. I will kop and save you the trouble of coveting a jacket you don't own.

Fit-wise though, Globa tends to fit bigger than the Intarsia so I wouldn't necessarily size down unless the Globa was 2-3 sizes too big. I'd go with the same size if I were you but I'd base my decision on the sizing provided by the seller.

Thanks!

and luckily I am an avid enough reader of the forums that I read the post in which Kunk threatened to strangle the next sender of an RO sizing PM- not to mention I also live in NYC so he wouldnt have to travel far to exact his revenge

sell it to me when it arrives, it will be woefully large on you and will stretch. i desperately want the pearl and could even trade something to you for it. the large intarsia will fit you well
