    5-zips look so good worn-in. To me at least they never look impressive in retailer photos or anytime they're fresh...but once the creases set in everything just works.

    That Addict is still the best DR I've seen on SF in a long time.

    I'm usually between a 46-48 (S-M) and I went with a size 38. I could JUST fit the smaller size, but went up so I could wear it zipper more comfortably and layer it. Keep in mind the leathers are fairly thick, so the measurements make them seem slightly bigger than they are - add a 2-3 cm to shoulder and chest from what you might wear in a suit jacket. The cut is slim, but not overly tight in any weird areas so no surprises.

    I liked your 5 zip but this one fits your style even more, with the caps and sorta casual avant-garde dude vibes.

    Just received one from the Deux Machina Store in LA. Size 42. SUPER NICE jacket, but unfortunately a bit too tight in the shoulders so I'll have to send it back. Amazing quality and aesthetic. I will probably order one from Satoshi in a 44. Prob Navy Horsehide. Thinking of getting a sheepskin one for the wifey too..

    You're going to find a difference in weight and finish for the navy horsehide. Not sure if thats what you want.

    Anyway, Japanese leather while generally decent, it's nothing out of this world.

    question for you guys. When I tried on the Addict leather jacket I noticed some 'ruffling/dimpling' around both traps like in the stock photo below. I initially thought it was because the jacket was too tight, but now wondering if it's just the cut, specific to Addict? Would that be something that 'smoothens' out over time with softer leathers?

    @rnguy001 that happens probably because the back is mostly one piece piece and not fitted.

    see below:

    now take a look at what rick owens does below, see how the back has seams that slim it down, its cut much different which causes the slim look (sorry don't know technical terms).

    Maybe your shoulders are too square for the jacket? On suits and sport coats, that can create a ridge at the back, which can also distort the shoulder line. Honestly, hard to tell online what's going on with garments. Any number of things can cause a fit issue, so you'd have to take the jacket to a tailor in-person to get an assessment.

    Generally, however, I think the idea of fit issues going away with time is overblown. You don't have to be super nit picky about the fit of something in casualwear, but fit issues aren't likely to disappear with wear.

    To @sinnedk, those are darts. I don't think they should affect the shoulder line. Darts are used to make a flat piece of material take on a three dimensional shape. Here being conforming to the small of your back.
