Awesome quality jacket inside and out. Top quality leather, soft yet heavy duty lining. the only issue is the jacket is cut extremely small in the shoulders. I wear an XL in everything and ordered a 2XL as suggested. Too tight in the shoulders. I reordered a 3XL and that should fit. If you have broad shoulders, order two sizes larger than normal
A really great looking jacket....very heavy hide ( should wear well for years to come) so it is stiff and a little uncomfortable in the neck area with the zipper all the way up.(used a little saddle soap to condition it) Hopefully it will "wear in" nicely as time goes by. An absolute steal at this price. I has the potential to become a" long time' favorite. A really fun addition to any wardrobe. **nice call on prior reviews calling for a "size up" upon odering this item...thanks** Good job "O"
I was concerned about sizing on this. I ordered a medium. My son is a 40R, medium dress shirt, 5'11", 170 lbs, size 34 waist. Fit fine in the arms and overall length (just at bottom of waist), but the shoulders are a bit big. He has swimmer shoulders so he's not some narrow body type, but the shoulders are cut pretty full. If the sleeve length wasn't shorter, I might have been able to go with a small - bomber jackets are meant to be worn snugly, not oversized. Jacket is heavy soft leather, feels pretty good. No bad odor. Probably a bit warm for California in the Spring/Summer but it will make a nice jacket for Fall/Winter in NorCal. He really liked it, just wished there were two interior pockets instead of the one.
Because I read so many conflicting reviews of this jacket (sizing, leather weight/thickness, lining, etc.), I bought both a medium and a large. I'm sure glad I did. It turns out the medium jacket was made in China, while the large was made in Pakistan. The medium fits my arms' length, shoulders and chest, but is baggy around my lower torso. It is also close to too short. It has more insulation and a more attractive, better sewn lining, and the leather is thicker/heavier - nicer for our windy/cold winters. The large size jacket is a much better torso length, but is very baggy all around. There doesn't seem to be any insulation, just a shoddier lining. And the leather is thinner/lighter than the Chinese/size-medium version. Overall, I prefer the size medium/Chinese-manufactured jacket . . . I just wish it were longer. I especially prefer the much better quality leather. It is tough to order one of these jackets and get one that fits right the first time. I hope this review helps you. P.S. I am 6'1", weigh 180 lbs., and usually wear a size 44 suit jacket. Good luck.
My husband had been wanting a great leather jacket for a while and I had been shopping around. I could not find one for less than $300 that was the style and quality that he wanted. It is nice and heavy for winter and stylish too. The price was a steal compared to what I had previously found locally. Thanks Overstock!

This is a beautiful coat, and very well made-- it is a heavy coat, a bit stiff when new but not at all uncomfortable. I gave this for a gift at Christmas and he loves it! The quality and value cannot be beat. Just as the info says- the coat sizing does run small .. i ordered a size larger than he normally wears, and it fits very nicely. You really cannot go wrong with this fabulous leather coat!
This is a high quality leather jacket, and a definite great bargain for the price. I bought it for an Xmas gift for my father in law who has a new motorcycle and I'm sure he's going to love it. I think that it will get even better with some wear. The wool collar is a bit ugly, but it is super easy to take off so it really doesn't matter.
