    ^ dayum.. what model is it and how did you size it? What do you mean when you refer to value? Last I read, kunk was saying that there weren't any discounts to be had on any of the good Rick jackets because they always sell out quickly.

    He prob wanted to check if the asking price is on par. Asked kunk if it was too high or something, my guess for value..

    first rick.

    Such innocence. That's like of like my niece telling me about her "first Happy Meal". From here on out, it's all downhill. Your bank account will go down or your waistline up.

    Really cheap Rick leathers don't seem to exist in the usual places. On SZ Juliuses list anywhere from 900 to like 1400. MMM comes up every once in a while in the $500 range. I'm going to guess "load of cash".

    RFX and snowman answered everything for me [​IMG]

    As for sizing, it's an 08' washed lamb intarsia size Large and I'm ~51. It fits really well. The sleeves are long, so they bunch up a little, but it doesn't bother me.

    Such innocence. That's like of like my niece telling me about her "first Happy Meal". From here on out, it's all downhill. Your bank account will go down or your waistline up.

    This is why I'm glad I live in central california. As long as I keep myself from handling more nice things in person, I can convince myself not to buy. [​IMG]

    As long as a stooges in my size doesn't pop up my bank account should be relatively safe [​IMG] If I ever get myself to socal or ny it's game over. [​IMG]

    The one I got was 850 shipped xpresspost from sufu. I am very pleased I picked it up.

    band waistcoat from rodengray [​IMG] $150
    Be careful with that one, sir; you could easily make yourself look like a waiter if you're not. Also: that thing is about 3" too short for the model; lulz.

    Solid deal sir. I like the jacket. Post a fit pic at some point. I do not like the contrast stitching and buttons on that waistcoat. And I am not against waistcoats in general having recently mulled a geller one myself.

    woolrich woolen mills black gray "speckeld" wool scarf. Heavy as fuck, feels like an anchor around the neck,

    Bergmans pima cotton chinos. Kinda bland, but will work well for "dressed-up in academia" settings.
