Sizing wise for those who’ve had the 5 zip, do they find it fits TTS? I’ve got broad shoulders anyways so I usually can’t size down lol
I have five of them and all are in a size 46 EU (or 36 US). I'm a size 37 chest. Mine were made between the years 2010 and 2018. I don't know if the pattern has changed. Some of the photos I see on SSENSE nowadays look different from the jackets I own.

Fit changes. If you get something from the early 2000s to maybe 2009, the shoulders are a bit more generous by design if going for your size. Going forward, the fit became slimmer from my experience. Shoulders are narrower and armholes are higher.

Looks really good but it's so freaking slim.

I trust that if fits you and you can move comfortably, but I myself wouldn't feel comfortable vacuum packed into my jacket like that. I'm also at least 15 kg heavier than you are, so that's another factor.

Yes, all my jackets are rather tight. I like it better that way. I also have some that are not quite so tight. With those I can layer something underneath.

This is great and I’m 6’1” so I’m sure I can get away with sizing up. Thanks!
Some of the new stuff on SSENSE looks shorter than previous iterations. I don't know if this is a new design. So if you're tall with broad shoulders, you might want to size up for both length and shoulder width.
