    i've dry cleaned 2 leather jackets (one of them being the blistered intarsia) and washed a leather sleeved varsity. all had minimum to zero shrinkage (virtually no difference felt when worn). the only thing that changed was the texture and feel of the leather it self. dryed out and literally squeaky clean.

    Oddly enough Gilt had the 30% coupon again. I guess they really want me to buy something.

    No loss in trying it out. Last RO I tried was a 48 and it was fairly slim. Same model I believe but in distressed black lamb..

    If the fit is nice I just hope it is not some second tier RO :eek:

    The only thing is that white leather may not be the best choice as a first leather hehe

    Unless you really like the color I'd pass. For a thou it's not a great deal that you can flip easily later and the blistered leather is pretty disappointing irl.

    Is the 30% off like $30 max though? Because Gilt can be misleading like that.

    And this is your first leather Toasty? A white blistered leather is not the most ideal first leather jacket but if you like it and it fits, why not?

    While it is a Russian Roulette when it comes to RO sizing, most fit really slim and it is usually just a size discrepancy. That looks like a Mollino though, which I would say is cut less slim than Intarsia but also depends on the season.


    Worth a shot though as you said so good luck!

    agreed first leather should not be white, but RO is good stuff and hard to resist
