    RFX: time to size up. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...E:B:SS:US:1123
    Haha, fuck that. These resellers (theres another guy selling the same size jacket) are the ones who sniped these from MrPorter just to resell. No way am I going to help these guys make a quick buck. [​IMG]

    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.

    My newborn child arrived in the mail today

    Was it worth 700$ ?? Probably not, but what do I know about really good leather. It feels and smells amazing, that's for sure.
    It fits very snug, actually slimmer and smaller than I expected (was worried about it being too big actually). Some may say I should even size up but I know this will stretch to my body as I wear it constantly. Am I happy? Absofriggenlutely. All Saints won me over for life. If I had to complain about anything it'd be that there is no inside pocket, also the interior lining is very basic.. just cotton. But this is nothing I cannot change in the future assuming I own this for many many years.


    Sorry to quote such an old post, but would you mind telling what size this is, and maybe your measurements?
    Found a decently priced used one in medium, and not quite sure how it will fit me.

    to the guy with the brown RO - I think jackets with large flaps (mine has em too) should not be worn zipped but with the flaps open, it's very hard to fit into your look. I wear my high neck up all the way like a true ninja, or with the collar folded down a little.

    Been wanting a biker leather for the longest time, and I'll probably end up getting a ToJ DR once i get a job again, but I'm looking for something right now that can get me through this season for cheap. Possibly vtg. Have been looking on ebay; any tips on what (not) to look for?
    My chest size is 37-38", 5'10", 146. Any help appreciated..

    Weekday has a cheap DR to be had for 1800 NOK. Leather is papery and thin, but it looks ok.

    Funny you quote this today... because i had to send that one in the photo back due to tears in the lining of the sleeves.

    today, i reordered the jacket in XS and S since they just restocked (you have to search for it on the website right now, for some reason it's not listed even under the leather section) except now they have it in two more colors Pepper (super nice, almost went for it) and bitter chocolate (close to black)

    in that photo I am wearing a size XS but note this is a very tapered jacket

    i am about 5'8, 135 lbs

    This is a great post. You should definitrely buy a leather with the intention of never zipping it

    what are the chances my rick jacket will stretch 1", or at least .5", in the shoulders? fits really tight right now. i can zip it all the way up, but it looks like i'm being strangled. armholes are fucking high too. [​IMG]

    shoes are the best part, that fit gets progressively worse as you move up the body. The long zips only emphasize how bad the shape of his torso is and the glasses are high school girl shades.

    i just re read my post and realised how stupid it sounded. what i meant is that should not be worn zipped AND with flaps open, instead of worn zipped but with flaps open [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
