    doesnt have to be a direct rip off, more of an interpretation

    I have a pose? :slayer: :lol:

    Also, anybody know why RO switched to suit sizing this season? Smallest I've seen so far is a 48 which is usually a medium. It seems impossible that all the size small sold out already.

    Anyways, some RO FW11 leathers.

    to address sizing inconsistency, but the numbers don't help. that top leather is awful in person, the new scuba is wool lined and nice but is almost 4k.

    That's very disappointing to hear.
    Saves me from buying more leathers though.

    yeah i found the shearling at a decent price but decided on an isaac sellam instead. even the other outerwear was cut very boxy this year, reminds me of raf

    Yah I don't think the sizing number helps at all, just makes it even more confusing.

    Interesting you mentioned the price because the mid-collars I posted are selling for around $2,400 at thecorner, which is low in RO standards. The brown safari bike at Oki-ni is selling for $2,300 too in the same brown leather as the mid-collar I posted. Could there be any correlation to the leather being used?

    I also find it interesting that the same combo leather jacket by RO is selling at $800 less retail from last season and it looks to be the exact same jacket, maybe just different leather. Could RO be sourcing cheaper leather for this season?

    many of the basic leathers still go s-xl and veil calf and oiled calf are the only substantial feeling ones. hammerd and mottled leathers are always a bit cheaper. i tried on 2 52s and 2 54s yesterday. one 52 was too big, one 54 too small
