    Something I have always wondered. How did michael jackson look so good in his leather jackets.

    He strikes me as being a really thin guy but his jackets always made him look wide and broad but at the same time they never really looked 'too big' on him

    Maybe you guys can help me, im thinking of buying this leather jacket but not sure about the size

    http://www.matchesfashion.com/product/128040

    Which fit do you like more? The first would be a 48 for me, but the second 46 if it fits at all. I have rather wide shoulders but small waist, so the 46 might be too tight at the shoulders. I am a little bit smaller than the model on matchesfashion who wears a 48.
    If the 46 is really tight at the shoulders and chest area do you think it may stretch out? Its horse leather by the way.

    So would you recommend me to get 46 or 48?

    I don't think that type of jacket is suppose to fit tight so I'd go for the 48. On a personal note, I just wouldn't get that jacket, you can get so many others for that price.

    Got the size 50 in the calf skin instead of the the 52 in deer skin. World of difference, same lengths but more contour around the chest shoulder and bicep. The leather feels and looks better IMO

    Very pleased

    How is the leather quality better? Wasn't that the same jacket as the size 52? Sleeves look a tad short which is saying something because that jacket has super long sleeves

    Where did you get that jacket from?

    The 50 is calf and the 52 is deer skin.

    I'd say they fall on the same place on my wrist as the Ssense model, but I do have a small p2p and a large arm span...something thats always plagued me with fits. I never said anything about better quality I just said that I prefer the look and feel of the calm over the deer.

    I got the 50 from Ssense, but they are sold out as I copped the last one..the 52 is fron Ron Herman. They also have a 38 in stock.

    I thought he meant I was implying the calf was nicer than the deer.

    If you're asking about my opinion on the quality of the two jackets I think the calf one is of nicer quality. However, the deer version from Ron Herman was made in Italy while the one I have now reads made in Romania.
