    A few questions about the cashmere-lined Rick biker jackets...



    Do the sleeves have any additional lining or insulation?
    How warm are these jackets compared to the regular bikers?
    Is the sizing consistent within Rick, or should I size up or down from my usual RO size?

    And then a more general question:
    Difference between Rick's LCW LGW leathers? (I did search LCW and "Rick leather codes" but nothing came up.)

    Thanks!

    can only comment on the mens versions however the extended cashmere lining leather jackets from Moody have poly fill in the arms, they are considerably warmer than the usual leathers (I wear mine in below freezing weather with a light sweater layered underneath), and the sizing is consistent with other leathers .

    Perfect, DJI. That's exactly the info I was looking for. Thank you!

    LCW is the Rick leather code for thick calf with a little bit of grainy texture that was introduced for Moody FW2014 notably on the stooges and cashmere lined variant. It's rather thick and juicy. Newer iterations of this leather code are less nice than the original from Moody. I have one from 2014 and I definitely like it. The cut was quite slim and even though I sized up, it is still a little snug, but it suits the Stooges.

    I have not heard of LGW, but it might be a grainier version of the same leather based on previous Rick leather codes.

    It may also be grainy lamb. This is based on older codes of LC = thick calf and LG = grainy lamb with the "W" potentially indicating winter weight.

    Thanks, Blackfedora. I knew LC and LG but wasn't sure of how the W might change things.

    Does anyone know of any good makers of straps for sunglasses/spectacles?

    So I'm a size 52, athletic build, and i've been wanting a M.A.+ biker for a while now... Is this ridiculous or do I have hope to find one that fits? A size 54 just popped up but seller says it fits like a 50 so I`m kind of thinking of abandoning the idea. I'd probably need something around 57 cm p2p to fit. Thoughts/help/opinions welcome, thanks!

    You need the "relaxed" (newer) version in size 54.

    I am an athletic 50 and just got 52 which is good for me (and still some room left).

    I think it matters which lining you get (wool is thicker so you'd want a regular cotton) and leather type (horse is best IMO)

    Get in touch with Holger from hide-m.com, he stocks the best ones. He can also help you with the sizing. Should have sz 54 available.

    I'm wondering if people who either own or have handled the Rick Owens FW14 Moody long version of the paneled peetrench could help me out on some questions.


    1) My understanding is that the bicep portion of the jacket is made of cotton (+nylon?) and I was wondering if that portion is backed with any sort of insulation? The jacket is intended for winter use, but that portion seems awfully thin.

    2) How heavy weight is the merino body portion? Good to -15℃ or thereabouts?

    3) I'm a 48 with large shoulders and tend to size up with Rick to 50/L but have found that 52 is starting to be comfortable as well. Since I am likely to wear moderate weight sweaters underneath this piece, should I size up to a 52.

    4) I also intend to add more front buttons or closure apparatuses so that I can wear it more easily without the belt on occasion, has anyone else done this with this piece?

    Many thanks in advance for your collective help.

    LCW is heavy calf leather
    LGW is washed lamb leather

    I suppose I'll post this here as it's the most complete breakdown of Rick codes I've come across

    that's incorrect. lgw is a lightweight waxy calf leather with a matte finish and paper-like feel. it's actually the same leather that used to use the code ll, and before that lt.

    Interesting. Thanks for the clarification.

    What temperature do you think is the lower limits for this piece?

    Man hard to say but Its not that warm and not very practical per se, it's a nice jacket though. The fur stuff is pretty arctic level tho

    I've got a wool pea trench and I love it but it's definitely not for super cold temperatures. The wool on mine is pretty thick and stiff but it's only partially lined. If you want something really warm, better to go with down or shearling. If you size up, you could layer up and use this as your outer "shell", I went with a 50 (my normal Rick size) for a slimmer look but I can't fit a really heavy sweater under due to the slim sleeves and high armholes. Also, in case you didn't know, it is double breasted with hidden buttons running down the side panels, so you shouldn't need to be adding more closures.

    I've had to have that covered or I would have froze to death some time ago. The long Geo shearling from Mountain and the down exploder from Crust do the job keeping me alive. I've just wanted something classier looking since I got rid of my "nice" winter coat when I sold my CCP carpet coat (it just weighed too much...).

    The version that I posted doesn't have any buttons beyond the neck ones and one at the top for closure (unless the are some hidden on the inner left side.)

    Thank you casem and TriggerDiscipline for your valuable input, I will take it into consideration. I may end up buying the 52 and having a lining added to it for proper warmth.
