    Can someone link me up to some cream or white color leathers? After trying that one RO from Gilt and having to return it I have been looking for a replacement.

    There is one on Yoox with ribbed cuffs but I feel for a leather jacket, I would prefer it to be entirely leather. Too pure? I don't mind spending $800-1K. Like I said, would have kept that RO if it was not for the long sleeves.

    Is Rakuten a good place to look?

    5-zip. Also, I think there is at least one pearl Rick floating around SuFu.

    You been wearing yours or did it go into the vault? It was nice. All the 40/50s sold out forever ago at retail. I am surprised that corner still has those sizes.

    5-zip just seems to be cut short in the body... you wear a 46 RFX? Are you like 5'9.5? I am a standard 38 and not sure if the 38 would fit too cropped

    edit:
    BTW, did you really pick up 4 different Balmain leathers a few pages back? Please post photos IRL TIA

    What? Where did me picking up 4 Balmain leathers come from? I just posted pics from the SS14 lookbook. :lol:

    I'm about 5'10" and wear a 34/44. It isn't badly cropped but it still felt a bit boxy/wide in the shoulder. I got a fit pic a few pages back.

    Yes I saw that photo, I think I would still prefer the style of RO > MMM 5-zip

    Any of the RO jackets in pearl would be sickening.

    I jsut don't really dig the moto/DR etc. type leathers TBH though your standard black color is always good. A tad worn oversized is ideal in my view

    Rick Owens doesn't seem to work for you and you don't like moto/DR style, is it too late to you're looking for a white leather bomber? Maybe a white or cream ToJ T-1/T-3 if that color leather is available?

    That stooges would be really cool without the stupid contrasting sleeves.

    I'm still kinda in love with that furry shearling a few pages back... it's gonna run like $5k though isn't it?
