Don't make me research please. Somebody school me to the Ring offerings @ Andrea Seoul? Seems like they primarily have black/white/maester labels? What (aside from maester, which seems top of the line) means what?

I'm just going on the baseline of what LeMarche have since I've had a chat with David about the difference of the models and I'd imagine they would be the same as Andrea Seoul.

  • AS White Label = Lamarche Napoli - Completely machine made (Although David has said that this 23f/w season that white label/napoli will be discontinued)
  • AS Black Label = Lamarche Black Label - 10-20% Handmade
  • AS Meister/H-Grade = Lamarche Hand Grade 30-40% Handmade with "different shoulder and collar construction"
Edit: Speaking to the Armoury folks, I believe their models are of similar quality to the Black Label stuff. Seems only the MTM stuff is at Ring Jacket Meister level


From what I hear, RJ doesn't tend to do handiwork on areas where it doesn't improve the garment. Some Examples of what hand work they do are "Camicia shoulder and the special lining on the inside of the sleeves. In addition, all the buttonholes are made by hand. The canvas is made of a higher quality as well" - https://lundochlund.com/blogs/editorial/ring-jacket

Hi everyone.

Given that i have a 53 - 54 cm chest, witch Lamarche size should I pick up?
48? or maybe a 50?

I had to size up from a 52R from my other RJ to a 54 for LaMarche after I went in person to try on their items.

So you sized up two times? Or is size 52R your regular size?
I would guess that I'm a 50R in the Armoury RJ. I'm a 40R in American sizing. 52 for RJ japan based on online purchases I made from their (ringjacket usa facing) website. But 54 specifically for Lamarche house cut.

This is gorgeous!
How do you find it, fit wise?
This is a size 50, and I'm a 50 in Ring Jacket NO-254 sports coat. I wouldn't want it any smaller in the chest when buttoned, but it's very roomy everywhere else, including the arms and sleeves, and obviously the waist (by design). I think a coat like this looks best with some drape and room, especially with this heavy fabric.

Apparently, the model on the website is about my size and is wearing 48, and I probably think I could have worn 48 as well. But then I would not be able to layer as much underneath. In the first two pictures above I'm wearing a thick shawl cardigan underneath.

I bought the above balmacaan in the brown/dark brown makeup M&E a few weeks ago. It's amazing (I was lusting after I saw one at The Armoury last year, and as soon as I realized there was a shop that had it in stock I had to get it).

I went up a size to 54, based on the measurements and The Armoury's suggestions for other RJ overcoats, from my normal Model 3/253 52 (I take the same size, different fit). I think it was a good choice for my intended fit, albeit a bit on the oversized aspect, to be worn over tailoring and heavy sweaters.
