    Looks good. I really like MA+'s leathers.. but that sleeve length.. unless I could get a full-time job as a ninja I think I'd have to get them shortened (from the shoulder of course).

    Sleeve length like that is fine for trying on a store but try eating cake in that thing...

    So many crumbs falling down your sleeves.

    The arms are tight enough that if you zip sleeves up and then just pull them up to stack the sleeves actually look fairly normal (or similar to Rick at least). Eating a cake though...

    When m.a.+ works, it works; when it doesn't, it's a total disaster.

    The leather on this season's Stooges (lamb) looks nice:

    I think I need a jacket with more of a taper than rick though :/

    More taper? Stooges are tiny at the waist generally.

    But they're usually tight in the shoulders, too. As opposed to something that's a bit of a dropped shoulder or just fits looser in general. For example, the jacket Fok posted has way more of a V-shape than most rick jackets besides maybe the shearlings.

    I like my Rick a lot but I'm not positive it's the most flattering cut on me.

    ah yeah rick shoulders are generally small. would think you could size up for shoulders and still have it be tapered enough in the body but maybe not.

    tried a blistered one at the rick store the other day and it fit more tts than the tiny ones from the past couple seasons fyi.
    i had a little room in a 46 which is surprising.

    Yeah, I mean the one I have looks fine, it's more that for a second jacket I'd be looking for a different cut. I phrased that original post poorly. This is the rick from the other day (work fit, usually wear with a T which looks better):

    This.

    Personally, I'd get one, and would like to see it get off the ground.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    no idea my man, give them a call http://www.yelp.com/biz/sui-generis-consignment-mens-san-francisco-3


    i didn't try that, i had a thermal on which was a bit thicker than a shirt and i would probably not wear anything other than a shirt with it, the lining made it warm enough...

    I'd remove the cuff zipper, cut off around 2"-3" of excess sleeve length :hide:
    replace with a shorter zipper, and keep the original length difference with the sleeve lining
