    Thank you! Seems like I'll be mulling over ordering. It's kind of a petrol blue shade to me and I'm not so sure I look good in that, but thanks for confirming that ordering XL is the way to go.

    Kinda annoys me that the XL fits and measures like large used to, but they seem to make fewer XL's

    Agree. It is annoying and inconvenient when fits vary, aside from slim and regular versions. It keeps me from a lot of impulse shopping. I don't want the hassle of returns.

    It's forced me to buy multiple sizes and use PayPal refunded returns, but I end up spending more than the refund amount most of the time. Now I have to ask around, google for Japan-based resellers who post measurements or call a store... and hope those measurements are accurate. It's a shame the nearest place I can see or try any RRL is Tokyo :(

    I have that cafe racer jacket. The leather is soft but substantial and it fits like a glove. Love how the black fades to brown. Wearing it today with RRL rigid slim fits and RRL white button down oxford.

    I was looking at that hard this year. If it goes on sale, it will be hard to pass up.

    Looks great on you. Fits well.

    I'm looking at a pre-owned shirt, and the text in the listing says "Size Small / Medium (labelled as a size 3)"... should I read this as it is something from the Woman's collection? Or does RRL use 'size 3' for Men's clothing?

    Women's collection or, I think, Japanese sizing.

    It's tea core properties are amazing in the photo at the RL site. Does the brown poke through as much IRL? Leather has so much depth in the factory pics. It looks generally black in your photo but it may be the flat lighting.
