Gorgeous but small
Like the previous reviewers, I also found this jacket to be absolutely gorgeous but small! I ordered it after having read the reviews and so ordered an L rather than my usual M. Even in the L it is tight. I considered returning it, but after reading the manufacturer's instructions that it would stretch, decided to keep it. I have put it on a few times since, and am feeling that it is stretching a bit to my body. I feel confident it will be perfect after a few wears. I think the important thing, as the manufacturer says, is that it fits in the shoulders. The L fits well in the arms - feeling it is getting looser across the torso (not that I want it too loose either). I bought it in the blue and absolutely love it. It will definitely be my 'go to' jacket all winter!
Fabulous, but sized very small
This jacket is just the coolest. I've been lusting after it for about a year and finally took the plunge after working my butt off all summer and pocketing extra income. In any event, the most important thing to be aware of is that it runs extremely small. I am 5'9" 135 pounds, 34B and the L fits me quite snuggly when wearing a tanktop. (I normally wear a small in FP# It does not really zip in its new, unworn, current state as it is not cut to accommodate the curve of hips despite its length #and I have bony ones). I was really pleased that the arm length fit, however, as my limbs are long and the turned up sleeve made me uncertain. I don't know if it's worth the money, but it's pretty fab and I will wear it a lot as its outerwear, hoping that as the other reviewer said, it will give a bit. The leather is very soft, so I do anticipate it will easily stretch some to make it zip-able.
This jacket is exceptional. It's buttery delicious, well made and malleable. Not to mention timelessly hip and chic. I do think it's designed for body types like the model as any real boob action will prove an obstacle to zipping. It looks best open but for the price I recommend holding it to the reasonable standard of zipping closed should you so need or desire. I am not one to force an item of clothing, esp. at this price, but if it arrives and is tight, keep in mind it is made to be as it will move and breathe and form to your body. You can stretch the sleeves a bit longer, work snug areas through your hands like a dough. That being said, it does run tight/small so if it's not just right, trust that the one for you is still out there. I am 5'9" 125 lbs., a bit broader in the shoulders than the model and I ordered the Medium. I am 32 chest and find it hard to imagine the Small fits a 34 as listed (keep in mind they don't show it zipped for a reason). With some kneading mine is a good fit that I believe will continue to improve with time, wear, adventure and joy.
leather to live in <3
you'd want to wear this jacket all the time; supersoft, thin, functional and a great neutral green for layering. am 5'4'' 100 lbs 32b and got XS. It does run a tad small, i can fit a thin sweater but not a heavy sweater comfortably, but i embrace this as i am petite and XS normally runs a bit large. Perhaps order one size up from your regular size, two if you are athletic. this jacket has more to it than the description says...its washable!!! in machine:))) supercool and moneysaving, its very pliable so its recommended not to hang it, rather to store in the enclosed garment bag or on a shelf. Its great for layering, even under a jacket since it is so thin and supple. I wear mine with pretty much everythng in my closet but i must say the carpenter pant, the sienna fringe boot and the focus on center top look extra lovely. it is a higher end jacket, and you totally get what to pay for, the detais are so perfect, like the two way zipper, the hood, the waist drawstring and of course that the leather is scrumptious. If you are at all on the fence, get it while they still are available.
As Perfect as Pictured
I feel bad for the previous reviewer -- I think I was the lucky person who got the last Size L she returned due to sizing. :) This jacket does run small. I usually wear a M and the L fits me perfectly. I sized up because I liked the way it fit on the model, and I'm so glad I did! I am in LOVE with this piece. I wanted a military-inspired jacket that was as cool as the boys', but with feminine touches and fit, and finally after years of searching, I've found it! The hood is fantastic, the zipper detail is a slightly lighter color than the leather so it really pops, the cinch strings aren't too long even at their loosest, and the distressing towards the bottom is incredible. When you spend this much money on a piece, you expect it to be perfect and this one completely lived up to expectations!
Runs WAY too SMALL! Crushed!
It runs very small. I bought this Jacket. Fell in love with it, could not wait for it to arrive. It is so beautiful but runs VERY small. I am 5'4", very active, curvy, 34DD. Normal size for me is a Med. or 8 to 10 in most clothes. I bought a Lrg for the extra room. I could not even get one side to meet the other....Let alone zip it! I was crushed! It is a GREAT jacket, lots of detail, super soft but just wasn't meant to be for me. I had to return it.
