    I can't classify this as a winter jacket though, it is lamb and pretty thin. It feels as soft and pliable as the blistered lamb. Plus being in SoCal, this seems like the perfect material for me.

    Based on the last fit pic I posted, does it really look too tight? I do prefer it to be on the slimmer side.


    Well diff people want different effects, especially when they buy a lot of similar items (say you and leathers+sneakers) so I don't want to be too prescriptive. However I personally avoid items so short and tight they make my hips look big, and I don't have much hips to begin with. Basically with the way it falls and how constrictive it is I don't find it too flattering with the type of pants you wear. I'd keep it if I wanted to wear high waisted/large pants like Yohji makes though, it would look great with that getup; with what I've seen of your style not so much.

    I'll keep that in mind and it isn't the first time someone suggested slightly baggier pants.

    blistered intarsia just arrived; a little roomy but good for sweater weather i guess. as far as the stooges, i like mine roomy and i think it's best in oiled calf because it feels more like a true MC but whatever floats your boat.

    gonna start archiving but the checklist now includes:

    blistered black mid-collar intarsia
    blistered over neoprene exploder high collar in black
    grey intarsia moto in washed calf
    high collar intarsia, hammered lamb in dust
    white leather blazer from 06, washed calf
    high collar exploder black in washed calf
    high collar intarsia in black oiled calf
    oiled calf stooges in black

    probably time to stop.

    True MC? Mens Clothing? Chances are I'll keep the stooges, I feel it fits well. Then it should stretch a bit more and I think it'll be alright. Kunk, you've handled this season lamb stooges, right? The thing is buttery soft, has RO made leathers like that before? Mos of the ones I see usually has some wash or distressing minus the oiled calf. This think is like oiled lamb or something, very soft but just not as thick. I thought you had more RO than that? I'll probably stop too since I am pretty happy with the stooges.

    they've had the lamb before but for some reason the stooges always seems very smooth. mc=motorcycle jacket

    I had a mollino a safari and a globa but sold them all. no earthly reason for more than 4-5 really. 8 is enough like dick van patten said

    Yea, i don't think that looks that good RFX. Love the jacket, but it's not a great looking going on. It's so short/tight and small in the shoulders that it's off putting in the pics to me. The other pic you posted looks a bit better at least. I don't think that jacket looks as good tight as the instartia or whatever that other one is. Have you tried on a size up before and found it too big? I guess most jackets and sometimes seasons differ in sizing so probably hard to make a rule about it.

    Couldn't really find it in a small. It's the first size that sold out in the MrPorter sale too.

    I guess I'm not done buying yet. [​IMG] I'll wear the crap out of this until a size small surfaces since I can't return this anymore. Too bad too since I actually find the sleeves length on this to be just right.

    looks fine, plus it will stretch and mold to his body since its lamb.
    what is the p2p measurement on the jacket? how much do you expect the jacket to stretch? will it stretch horizontally as well as vertically? does only lamb stretch, what about calf or any other type of leather?

    p2p is around 18"-18.5". It'll stretch where there are more stress or pulling so likely in the sleeves and shoulders. And chest if I wear it zipped up. Lamb is more prone to stretching since it is thinner and more pliable. I don't think it'l stretch much, maybe by .5"-1" the most.

    I personally like it. Looks perfect open and maybe a bit tight in areas closed but should mold to your body over time. I personally think roomy leather jackets look bad.

    RFX that jacket is a size small. Look at where the shoulder seam ends and where your shoulder ends. That should be enough to convince you that it's too small.
