Yeah I asked bc I thought it’s be too small for you. Return fee is pretty small tho.
Har, this thing is hilariously small on me. Back it goes.

On top of that, it didn't blow me away like I expected. It looks really cool, but up close it's also very obviously a really nice but fairly standard jacket that's elevated primarily by an exceptional wash/treatment they've put on the leather. Frankly, if I want a true fashion DR, I'd rather have a Stooges than this one, especially if Rick ever brings back the Blood shade.

Sending back this and a couple other impulse purchases, which is always a nice feeling.

It's a win. That's $900 I can either put toward the two jackets I actually want (Vanson Daredevil + Aero Board Racer), toward home decor, or toward saving up for some Good Art jewelry. Might just sub it out for the Daredevil right now, since they're on sale. All good in the end.

Trust me that any of the old school Rick treated calf/lamb leathers feel similar to, but better than, this one. Now if only Rick would find a way to tastefully integrate more hardware into the Stooges...

Didnt pull the trigger on the suede Yorks a while ago, really regretting it now
Love them both! I thought they would look tacky, but when worn they are actually pretty ace
