    It says 13AW. Also, for a SS14 bomber, does anyone know "TP"?

    From nicelynice several pages back: "LA is the thinner spring/summer weight calf leather". Not sure about TP though. I think I've seen that code on tees and hoodies?

    Hope this helps

    Cool, that does help. Guy on grilled said it was like a canvas, but not as stiff? Wouldn't just tell me the composition from the tag though...

    Take a look. The design is obviously really similar to the moto jacket made for men pretty commonly in the past, but you can see how small the shoulders are and the button pockets. I've just never seen button pockets on a men's jacket before but have seen them on women's Rick frequently

    Don't know why this didn't occur to me before, but can you just post the product code? IIRC men's and women's use different codes.

    That's a good point that I forgot to mention. The code is RU 8763, and searching around most of the men's moto jacket have RU 1769 as the product code.

    Been on the lookout for a Bauhaus but I can't figure out if I should go for 52 or 54. I'm 6'4", 200lbs, medium build, 41" chest, 35" waist. I've read through this whole thread and have like 50 tabs open with various measurements and I still can't decide if the 52 would be too small. Barney's is the only place I know in the Bay that stocks much RO but they haven't had any leathers the last times I've been. Any ideas? AM I A FATTY???

    Been leaning towards calf as I think the collar looks cooler a little more stiff but I could see that getting annoying too.

    If you have shoulders DEFINITELY 54 and IT may be tight. Big guys like us aren't catered to by Rick even though my whole wardrobe is Rick, Boris and Poell.

    How does that work with the rest of the fit, though? I'm not as big but I've been looking at some of the jackets and it seems like anything that would fit in the shoulders would be crazy broad in the chest.

    That's def. a men's jacket, it's just like 10 years old or something. Some older stuff had buttoned pockets and weird sizing. No womens jackets have anything close to 16-17inch shoulders anyways

    I believe women's product codes start with RP as well.

    The rubber sidewall has started to separate from the sharktooth sole on my geobaskets. Can this be repaired?

    It's a men's jacket and I want to say it's from Crust or maybe even older. I've also never seen the collared moto design for womens before.

    Especially when the shoulders scale by 1/2" and the chest by 2" each size you go up. I'm not sure 1/2" is going to make all that much difference in the shoulders.

    Got my LCW Worker. The leather's pretty nice, and I really dig that it's unlined except for the sleeves...it's a relatively substantial leather, but definitely an SS jacket as far as warmth and heaviness goes. The leather itself is pretty bland and basic calf, and the silhouette doesn't work as well when the leather is still stiff, but I'm hoping it'll wear in well over time. I definitely liked the Brushed Calf I had before better than this LCW.

    One thing that pissed me off: The first time I tried it on, a few stitches popped on the back of the underarm. I wasn't testing the seams much at all, but the threads broke clean in half as soon as there was any pressure on the shoulder. It'll be easy enough for me to fix with a needle and thread...the leather itself was totally unharmed...but I'm still disappointed that a $3000 jacket had an issue so quickly.

    Roger that. Lesson learned. Expensive lesson learned, but lesson learned. I probably should've paid more attention to what I've read here and elsewhere...looking through the secondhand market, I'm far from the first who's had a seam fail at this exact spot.

    I might just get a tailor to fix it then try to sell it off and hope I only lose a few hundred dollars. I think I'm done with Rick leathers for a good while after this. I'll still keep my eyes out for a black older-season calf Stooges, but that's gonna be it. I love Rick's cuts, but I'm not yet at a place in my life where I can brush it off easily when a purchase goes bad like this, which probably means I shouldn't be buying these things in the first place.
