Thread: Sizing help

    Quick question about CCP scarstitch sizing. I generally take an M/48 in older RO leathers, and a size 50 in the newer seasons.

    Generally need a 17.5" shoulder, 20" chest. Would i be able to fit into a sz 46 Scarstitch? I know measurements can be deceiving sometimes.

    Is there conventional wisdom around how scarstitches fit? I've seen people go true or size down.

    Thanks for any help!

    Does anyone know how the FW15 version of the ma+ ninja turtleneck fits? I assume it fits a size small but wanted to make sure.

    how do Guidi sidezips fit compared to the backzips?

    rule of sizing is the same as the backzips, about going one up, in my experience.

    How do BBS tejanas fit? The leathered armed ones... Wondering if their best oversized as an M on an S or tight as an S on an S?

    For older seasons I sized up 1 (what I normally do for BBS tailored or leathers), but for newer seasons I have a friend who had to size up 2, which is also my experience for SS16 tops.

    I purchased a J1 from BBSNY and had to size up to XXL when I'm normally L/XL.

    Hi all can someone familiar with this piece (RO Cyclops long sleeved funnel neck sweater cashmere) assist me with the sizing? If I am a 46 in RO should I get XS for that intended fit?

    And perhaps someone who have handled it could share if this sweater tends towards the rigid or soft side? Thanks in advance :)

    Default Rick Leather lowtops

    anyone have an opinion on current season mainline leather lowtops

    I find Rick's sizing all over the place depending on season

    I'm usually a 42, but in the past 42's been too small, had to size up to 43

    any help greatly appreciated

    hrmmm, high tops seem true to size this season (as well as boat sneaks), haven't tried the low sneaks from mainline though - just the DRKSHDW variants.

    FWIW - those are definitely true to size as well.

    Can't say with that design for sure, but the knits I've tried on this season were fitting very small, so I would size down at least one for safety.

    They typically advise this even at the showroom, so I kind of presumed that was general advice with regards to his knits.

    (So yes, an XS will probably do you well).

    @curiouscharles : thx man

    yeah i got a pair of island dunks, stupid cheap, and they were TTS

    I had opposite experience with DRKSHDW variants, they were definitely running small, at least the lowtop I got a pair of corduroy cloth ones, way small.

    Or I could just get off my ass and go down to the Rick store and try them on... small advantage of living in nyc

    ah, a convenience I only ever had for a brief period of my life (living in London for a bit).

    was weird for me though because I couldn't afford any of it at the time, so avoided visiting boutiques out of fear of being a showroomer of sorts.

    hrmm, yeah I'm speaking of the waxed canvas variants, which are true to size - similar in sizing to the non-waxed canvas from this, and the last few, seasons at least.

    haven't tried these corduroy ones, although I never saw those in the showroom either - are you maybe just thinking of the cotton "canvas" ones? (non-waxed, actually more of a heavy twill than anything)

    ^ Thanks curiouscharles. I decided to go with the OS turtle sweater instead but thanks for the info :)

    these ones



    i guess they are kind canvas backed corduroy fabric, horrible little shoes, very uncomfortable

    heard rumor that his shoes manufacturing gets bid out to lowest bidder to keep profit margins up, so there is inconsistency in production, more so on the DRKSHDW side
