    What do you guys think of this jacket with a stand up collar? Not sure if the fit is slim enough.

    looks really good DL. for the record would you mind stating your measurements and how you sized, you basically went down one right? (i am trying to 'enable' a friend who i would guess has a similar build..)

    Never known new season rick leathers by so inexpensive. Some of the new ones this season are retailing under £1000, the suede ones seem pretty cheap as well.

    offsets against the price of the shearlings.

    i take a peek around boutiques maybe 3-4 times a year and i have to say that with most high fashion brands, sizing really tends to depend on the season. i learned the hard and really expensive way that designers select models based on what cuts they're offering and what looks good on them may not look good on you.

    for that reason i'm alright with buying baller shoes online, but never leathers. i always try in person, don't like hassle of returns.

    Yeah the 5-zip is generally true to size or up 1 depending on the year and the model. My 52 all black fits super tight in the waist but fine everywhere else, and I am a 32 waist, 40 chest, 6'2".

    Think I'm in love with this jacket, usually I can't see myself in leather jackets but this reversed leather with extended lining BBS has a softer look I'm really drawn to. If only the guy hadn't decided to keep it :fu:

    Does the hanging tag or material in the back of BBS jackets have any purpose? Just curious.

    From my experience, recent 5-zips aren't boxy at all. There's a pretty strong taper from chest to waist so they're actually pretty form-fitting. I think only the older iterations (with MRS zippers) were boxy. That said, the shoulders are generally cut slightly wider.
