    Need some Julius help guys -

    Very interested in buying a size 1 08 Jut neck online, however I've never tried on a size 1 Julius jacket before. I tried on a size 2 in-store here (2011 model) just now (they don't stock size 1), and I found the arms and shoulders to be quite snug but the sides quite roomy. Was also a bit long length-wise. I'm pretty confident I'll fit a size 1, but just wanted to ask those who have handled both, how much smaller does size 1 run compared to the 2? Do they stretch out at all too? I'm basically a 44 in most jackets. Thanks

    it isnt that much smaller, but they might be too tight at times. Depends on the collection. Yah, they stretch but it would be easier to answer this question if you had measurements of yourself and the jacket.

    My p2p measurement is about 43/44cm, and shoulders 42.5cm The important measurement I've been quoted for the jacket is p2p 47cm, and of course it has raglan shoulders

    Yeah I was given the measurement as 47cm, though it has been worn maybe 10 times by the previous owner so maybe it stretched a little?

    Thanks for your help though, I will most likely pull the trigger on it!

    Couple of quick pics of my new Julius Jut neck (sorry for poor picture quality, was in a rush). A lot more black in real life than these pictures show

    Regarding the RG cdet lether, I bought it 2 years ago and I hated it, as simple as that !

    Leather is so thin and soft, it seemed too weak (Impolyt_One already stated about the quality of the Korean leather used by RG). To me a leather jacket must feel thick and robust. Also the body length was much too long while the shoulders were too tight. After all, I don't like ribbed cuff and body jackets, but that's just personal.

    Also, 2 years ago you could see this jacket everywhere on the 2nd hand market....I had quite a hard time reselling it !

    What leather is the jut neck in the pic? Doesn't look like calf from the pic.

    I have the FW07 leather that I think is considered the Cadet, and I love it. Geller's leathers are always thin; I've put mine through hell and it hasn't torn so the thin leather doesn't bother me. It works well as an all year leather (I still wear mine in summer nights). I have a 46 but the whole thing measures out like a 44 so just check the measurements.

    I believe there was a ram leather version as well.
