Laughing out loud I think you're right, it does just look really meh. I feel drowned in it. The medium was much sharper:

always find APC outerwear fits big compared to the rest of their stuff. usually go for L as opposed to XL shirts etc

Always found this
Guess it's the desired fit of the brand
Always have to go up to M in their tops but coats always XS or S and even they are big on me

From the sandro sale - comparable to the saint laurent one for 1/6th the price. Debatably just an overpriced levis jacket but I like it a lot

Really? Ive got a few of their jackets and think its great value especially on sale. Handled a few Saint Laurent items today and now those were really really shit, can't believe what they're asking for it.

They used to use real 100% materials and make stuff in France. I used to view then being a better brand than Kooples, they now on par maybe just below quality wise now.

Faux fur the used now is awful, your better off going to Zara.

some of them are decent, some of them are shit, all of them are overpriced. but when there's nothing else similar and you like it then there's no alternative, i've ended up with a ton of saint laurent stuff for that reason. Most stuff I cop on sale atleast 40% off.

Honestly have no qualms with quality of this sandro jacket though for price paid, but wouldn't pay full price for any sandro things!

I want to like the above jacket, not keen on the collar or the elasticated cuffs on leather. It's a good fit on you.

It's the button fixing on the collar when undone on motorcycle jackets that I don't like. That tab flapping about.

I do understand that. The tab made me think twice but when trying it on I found it a lot less disagreeable.

Unless you're actually on a motorbike are you really going to wear it done up? People might mistake you for Star Trek cosplay.

It looks a bit weird for a rick leather imo, usually the sleeves are mad long and the body is much shorter and that's the aesthetic, this looks like the opposite. Not saying it's bad by any stretch but I think there's plenty better rick leathers to go for.

PS. you didn't happen to get the cotton flight bomber from mrporter in a 52 did you?
