    What kind of quality can one expect from a brand like Burberry? I noticed this lambskin bomber on their site and I am completely in love:

    Then there's also this nonnative which I am considering:

    Looks good. Forget brand name - focus on leather quality, construction, and styling.

    I love the color
    I love the lining
    I love the internal strap
    I hate the leather material/feel (felt like polyester lol)
    I hate the sleeve length
    RO cut is not for me
    Size 50 and I have tried a size 48 before in the similar style but was super tight in my arms / shoulder. Looked too wrapped on my body

    This is from SS12, color pearl, lamb, rayon/cotton/silk lining, 2 internal zip pockets at the side near upper chest, no tags in the lining, tags in left zip pocket, has backpack strap. Color is much nicer in personl, a gray/beige with a bit of white showing under the sun I imagine. Very versatile IMO

    I now want a leather in similar color :(
    If black it would probably be in something smooth with a bit of sheen but mostly matte

    toast the arms are supposed to stack, is there any way to close or tighten cuffs? i think the only issue is the arms being long but thats an ro thing.

    overall its a bit baggy but pic 2 looks good imo, in fact i like the fact that my ro has some room, i cannot stand things that are too snug

    I cannot do anything about the sleeve width especially at the cuff. It is already zipped up. :(

    sucks

    Sorry to hear that toasty.

    Is the 48 you tried on from the same season?

    Being super tight in the shoulder and arm is pretty normal for RO, it'll stretch a bit to be comfortable especially in blistered lamb (assuming yours is blistered lamb, which is very pliable). For any regular leather, I think the fit is just about spot on in the shoulder but for a Rick Owens, you can probably afford to have it a bit tight and closer fit in the shoulder.
