    for the body length, are you thinking it is too short or long? where would you like the jacket to fall?

    how about the sleeve length?

    Is that intarsia fake or BS? I know you said it's an "intarsia w/ a few modifications" but I figure that meant taking off the the ribbed cuff but the overall shape and stitching looks off.

    Oh ok, was just curious because some does look off. I think for the RO aesthetic, the jacket is too long and it being cut straight in the bottom looks somewhat weird with the jackets style. ROs jacket are usually cut longer in the front and short in the back so it creates a different silhouette. If you're not going for that RO aesthetic, I think it looks fine. Maybe get it darted in the back so that it pulls in the mid-section a bit more?

    I've never tried on or handled Julius so I can't comment on the fit but from the pics, they do look more straight cut, they are just fit really small overall from what I understand.

    To be honest, I think a milk colored leather is as versatile as a whiskey colored one. My dust colored bomber is actually more off white color/very light grey color and it has gotten a lot more wear than I expected. It's pretty close to ROs milk color for some reason, ROs colors are just as unpredictable as his sizing.

    I am actually done buying leathers right now, got too much already but I do plan to try it on when I get the chance to visit HLorenzo.

    Here's a pic of the dust (or dna dust) color RO bomber.

    It may not look like "milk" colorway in that pic but keep in mind this is ROs milk color for this season. And both are blistered lamb.

    That is a pretty close color to mine actually, shades just varies by the amount of light.

    well size are like this : XS-S-M-L-XL.

    I usually wear L for everything (I am in between size 48-50 for blazers) and I bought size XL. Could have gone with XXL if it even existed.


    I am a size 50/40US for blazers and I've tried on mostly L sizes at the Archive and they seemed fitted but okay - depends on how much the leather will stretch to fit over time I suppose.

    The Intarsia pic is closer in color, I'm just horrible in taking pics.
    Here's a clearer pic, same shoes so bare with me. [​IMG]

    I have more simple styled sneakers from Lanvin and my Raf Vandals are pretty normal looking. I have some MMM GATs too, which is pretty simple. I also have boring chucks/jack purcells that I could wear with it but overall I am happy with my sneakers. I came from wearing Nikes and Jordans so these are actually more toned down than I am used to. [​IMG]

    I got some boots and shoes for different occasions where it is less appropriate to wear sneakers so really no big deal. I appreciate the criticism though, as harsh as they may seem, I always try to keep all of them in mind.

    I feel like rfx justs throws together random expensive items... not too much cohesion goes on in his fits. Maybe because he owns so many clothes they don't look worn in, not alot of personal style IMO. No I'm not hating on his wealth haha.

    With RO, I think it really depends, I've seen numerous pics of it worn open and still look good. Like NN, he pulls off the mid-collar well unzipped. Fuuma also has a hi-collar pic that looked great unzipped. I agree with the stooges though, I don't think I've seen many fit pics of it looking that good zipped up.

    Eh, I get that a lot. First there were no brand synergy, then no price synergy, then when I put on something that are synergized (I don't think that's a word at all, oh well) then it is too monochromatic or too Raf. [​IMG] It really will never end so it really doesn't bother me at all.

    I guess theres an exception if it is oiled calf, leather is just too nice. Probably would look better with the collar down. I guess 3/4ths isn't so bad either.

    For kicking back, I'm just happy with leather, tee, jeans and sneakers.

    Kunk, I thought you were done buying? You getting them from the RO store? I'd honestly go for the showtek. This one right?
