    Color has nothing to do with it... I don't know how you're wearing any jacket in this hell right now :fu:

    Oh I'm not. I just put it on while considering consignment through Luxeswap. But it fits me too perfect, even after 4 years. I think it was too big and I grew in to it.

    Guys, I'd appreciate some sizing advice: I'm 5'7" and usually wear 48, though I'm really a large-chested 46. I tried on a RO Bauhaus from fw12 in size 52 today just for kicks, and I was shocked to find that it actually didn't seem huge. The shoulders were a bit tight, but the chest was comfortable and waist had a bit of room. Length seemed alright but I was wearing shorts. I'm debating if I should try to find a 50 so the chest will be tighter or just go for it. Getting a size 52-anything seems slightly ridiculous to me though..

    you should try your actual size before deciding to size up. ro isn't about being roomy. the best ro leather fits i've seen were because they were second skin fits

    That whole season ran a size large, but that's it - a size. You're probably a 48 or 50. I'd try the 48 if you can.

    Definitely much better, your frame also suits the boxier and wider shoulder cut.

    Sounds weird to me. I couldn't imagine getting a 52 and my chest is 40 inch if not more. Sleeves and length would look just ridiculously long. RO won't fit everyone e.g. me.

    RO jackets sizing is weird to me, you see some 54 and barely hitting 18" shoulders.

    Black suede stooges. Has RO ever done regular suede before? Seems like it's usually blistered.
