    Thanks. I hear that tailoring leather is fraught with difficulty and risk, even in big cities such as NYC.

    I think this season you might be ok with 44, but all previous seasons where its italian sizing you probably want 46. Before that, xs might work. Measurements are probably best bet. You look like same size as @RFX45 so maybe stalking him would help

    Personally, if it was anything fall 2012 and after I would take a safe gamble sizing up one. Before that, the sizing is literally all over the place, even within the same season. But it sounds like you're looking at current season and Mr P has free returns anyway - order the 46 and see how it is.

    RO sleeves will always be long, though, nothing like SLP.

    On a random leather note, I'm slightly annoyed that my Goodwear Leather jacket that I purchased about 3 years ago for $750 or so (new), then sold about a year ago for about the same, now has an MSRP of $1500. :uhoh:
    I know it's a one man operation and completely hand made, but... damn.

    ^ pretty sweet. I have the milk geo from stag and it's pretty substantial. More suitable for fall than winter, though. If the price is right, go for it.

    Yet, people are literally lining up to pay $1,500+ for a Goodwear jacket. I contacted Goodwear yesterday . . . . the current wait time is 20 months!!!

    How did you like that GW jacket, Moo? I've been thinking about ordering a couple more "traditional" horsehide or cowhide jackets, and am mostly considering Goodwear, The Real McCoys, and Himel Brothers.
