    Are aesthetics not a benefit in fashion?

    leather sleeves are not a benefit in that jacket in my opinion. Blistered lamb is gonna stretch and then look like you have balloon arms, which dont look good in contrast to the denim, least to me. Rather just buy a whole blistered leather so the drape matches throughout the jacket.


    I think the heavier oiled calf leather is better with denim jackets.

    I think it'll stretch so much that it alters how it looks. I've been wearing my full blistered lamb moto, which buttery btw, and mine still looks the same as the day I bought it. Sleeves aren't exactly like jeans where it is under pressure when you sit down, you'd have to be flexing and holding it in that position for hours for that to happen. I don't know though, it might happen to Kunk but that is because of his build, not many are built like Kunk though. Well at least not many that wears RO.

    hmm, you're probably right..I was just worried that would be the case, since stretching beyond belief happens to all my rick shit, lol. yah, I might be thinking this cuz someone with the blistered leather pants had it stretch a ton, but maybe thats more the case with bottoms. I also don't like ribbed cuffs...

    Yah your Rick jackets really stretched that much? I'm still waiting for my xs lamb stooges to stretch and it still as small as it was when I bought it.

    Which RO is this? Doesn't look very RO to me, more Margiela-ish.

    Probably because he's responsible for the success of a business? Super hard to maintain your lofty ideals in a situation like that. Or maybe he was getting bored with his look and he wanted to change shit up? For what it's worth, I saw an accessory piece of his that was absolutely gorgeous and in the RO spirit, a comb with a tilted crescent handle.
