    also considering a rick intarsia, could somebody help me out with sizing advice? i'm a 39" chest with broad-ish shoulders, medium seems like it should fit but the shoulders would be tight (seller measures as 44 cm). should i try a large? (5'10" 170lbs if that helps)
    thanks!

    They run all over the place, but ricks jackets always fit really tight in the shoulders. Size it more like a shirt than a jacket.

    sound like we are the exact same build, robinson. I've got both an M(48) '11 and an L(50) '12 -- the first is really snug, t-shirt only underneath. the other is a bit loose, I can easily fit a knit underneath which can be nice if it's for cold weather.

    LV is simply horrid. Sure, the material is excellent, but everything else stinks. As for bright blue and orange leathers, I would be very careful about colour coordination before pulling the trigger.

    I purchased this same 5 zip in January from Tres Bien in January. Very thick heavy calfskin, and the gunmetal zips are also very substantial. Lining is sort of scratchy cotton material, doesn't seem like it will hold up as long as the jacket but it's lining, I'm not that worried. I think I have pics up in RP from when I got it (should be in the gallery associated with my account). Overall, it's the jacket you'd expect it to be from Margiela.

    that one is LV? hmm.. kind of interesting. It's very clean. You say the material is excellent but everything else stinks. What's the "everything else" part? Just curious. :)
