I have hankered for a Rick Owens since Jan and with advice from Annanas and a link posted by Susie I took the plunge
I ordered on Friday and it came on Monday, so pretty fast. The price was also cheaper than London prices so I thought why not!
Its black, 44 - I tried on the 42 and it was perfect wearing a thin jumper, but I thought it would be nice to have a bit of space for thicker long jumpers in the winter months. I might get a shadow 42 later.
I bought the famed RO moto jacket about 2 years ago. LOVE IT!!!!! Has anyone else noticed that the price of this piece changes from season to season? When I bought it, it was around $2600. Less than a year later, it was $2,065 and stayed at that price for like 6 months (this was the retail price, not on sale). Now it's back up to $2675! Bizarre.
i was wondering about that too, but i think the s/s styles are thinner and also a bit cheaper. where you get it can make a big difference too, but i think generally a/w jackets are more expensive and have a thicker lining, certainly my first one which is an a/w jacket is a fair bit more substantial than my s/s one that i just got.
^^^ Huh! I guess that's possible! I just assumed it was the same jacket from season to season because it *looked* the same on Net-A-Porter both seasons, but that's good to know that your s/s and a/w jackets are vary in thickness -- it would be a very reasonable explanation for the price difference!
^ I just looked at the tag and the jacket I have says A/W 10 on it, so I guess its a winter one. I have found LVR to be just like NAP in terms of speed in delivery and packaging etc. I saved £400 - $650ish by going with LVR instead of NAP.
I have a couple of leather jackets from past seasons and I bought this RO black shearling jacket a couple of weeks ago. I went up a size (from my usual 40 to a 42) because the shoulders were tiny. The pic isn't me
Sammyjoe, I wish I had not clicked on this thread, I adore the one you posted from lvr. I am normally at size 42 in most things, so if in the future I were to get one would you recommend a size 44, I do not like lest her jackets tight on me?
