    obvious branding like those gucci stripes on that jacket are worse than ed hardy in my opinion.

    on mine the upperarms/shoulders are definetely the most restrictive part. If you work out a lot, I´d size up to 54 if not 52 could work but will be VERY fitted, maybe too much so.

    3-4 months old sz 52 (between 41 and 42 chest, shoulders about the same)

    I assume its an older collection f/w, since it was on yoox. (sold out around november)
    it has a woolen inner and woolen set ins in the arms.

    was kinda a blind buy, since there was nearly no talk about those jackets to be found anywhere .
    But I´m pretty happy with it and in europe I would have been able to return for free.

    I think they are pretty well done. I like the hardware, despite being no Riri, but some italian (raccagni) TF seems to use them.
    The lamb on mine is substantial and feels like it could age well, if the woolen set ins last that long.

    A few things to dislike.
    With woolen inner and inserts in arms it is pretty much f/w bound. I´d prefer arm zips over the woolen inserts.
    The collar could have done been better. Closed it works well, but I prefer to wear the jacket open and open it tends to lay down instead of standing.
    With all the talk going on yoox has them now at nearly double what I paid not on sale, so it will be much harder to get some blach/grey S/S adequate. [​IMG]

    my other leathers have brown tones, which are limited in this regard.

    How do the fit of leather pieces from margiela in the 90s contrast from the pieces today?

    The one I've found for sale is a 1999 and in a size 50, I have a current 5-zip in a size 50 that fits pretty well, would the one from 1999 fit similar?

    Thanks for the help

    that one looks really short/cropped, but as intended. 19" zipper, prolly 20" in front. 19" P2P also, but that is might be mis-measured, because 19" on a 50? wtf...

    19" is wrong, it's probably more like 21". The new 5 zips seem to fit a lot slimmer than the old ones.

    From the seller:

    Quote: Seems like it'd be good for a 48 / slim 50.
