    The bauhaus version is better but how does that look cheap?

    It's hard to quantify ... something about the wobbly zipper, the texture of the leather, and the rather thin "tufts" of fur make it look like ... well, much less than a $5000 jacket.

    While I wouldn't argue that this Incarnation looks better (though in my opinion, it does), I'd say it certainly looks more luxurious.

    The asymmetric shearling does look a bit better.

    both shearling jackets look cool if you are into that but at 5k price points it is a WTF

    Is rick quality really that bad? I feel like that's an internet thing, all 4 jackets I've handled were really, really nice.

    i think it's a function of the zipper tape he uses. it's kind of soft.

    I bought this 5 zip at 50% off yesterday from MrPorter in a 48 - the last one in stock. I'd been looking for one in white calf at a decent price for ages and had almost pulled the trigger a day earlier at 30% off.

    Anyway, I got an email from customer service this morning saying there was a mistake in their inventory and they "couldn't locate" the jacket in a 48 so my order had been cancelled. Have to wait a few days for the pending payment to disappear on my credit card.

    Hello everyone,

    I was just wondering if anyone knows of anywhere online in which I can find a good quality black lambskin leather jacket?

    rick quality of the past 5+ seasons has been garbage, if you think any different you simply don't know what quality is

    prob everything from ss10 release onwards

    I found a few Rick leathers over that period that I liked and thought they had acceptable quality, perhaps I can't gauge quality which is okay with me I suppose.

    My main problem with recent Rick leathers has been design not quality.

    That thing was ridiculous. The arms had the diameter of a garden hose, and the body was a barrel. I don't know what body type could look right in that.

    It would be a huge leap forward if he got the fit right in the new version, which looks okay to me based on internet pics.
