    do any of the mason martin marigela leather jackets ever go on sale anywhere?
    i am debating between one of those full zip ones or a belstaff brad jacket.


    This one is 40% off at the Margiela e-boutique right now and 50% off at MrPorter:

    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.

    lets say the p2p measurement is 18 and it stretches 1 inch. so are you saying the p2p measurement will become 18.5? or is it 19? It wasn't clear if you were referring to p2p or circumference.

    There really isn't an accurate number, those are guesses but it will stretch a bit. It shouldn't matter if it's by p2p or as the whole circumference. I can let you know once I get more wear out of it although it is getting hot so it won't be seeing many wears in the near future.

    even if the P2P stretches the jacket looks tight at shoulders and sleeves.

    pickup from Yoox came in. First RO and I like it better than I thought I would, pics don't do it justice at all. Only gripe is that the slim fit is making the pockets flare a bit. As I figured the sleeves are extremely tight, though not as bad as my last TOJ in calf that I had to sell.

    That looks even smaller on you than the stooges did on rfx. Don't know what size you got there but there's a L on yoox as well.

    I think it fits fine, he just have big arms but the body fits well. Kunk pretty wears his the same way.

    But then again I have sizing issues myself so. . .
    Although I think the issue with my sizing is more the style of the jacket that it is suppose to fit looser while intarsias are suppose to fit closer to the body.

    Thanks for the input guys. Think I'm gonna agree with big Kunk and keep it. Its tight in some areas but I don't think sizing up is the answer, and from some fits of RO Leathers that I've seen it's pretty close. As rfx pointed out the lamb has some stretch to it.

    Doesn't look good, too small. Needs to drape a bit IMO.

    your issue is the assymetric zip. xs in any thing else would have fit

    I think it fits fine, he just have big arms but the body fits well. Kunk pretty wears his the same way.
