I was so happy when I opened the box and took out this jacket, it's absolutely gorgeous! I have been on a search for a motorcycle jacket made of lamb leather. I previously bought and returned 3 other motorcycle jackets (from other websites) because they were not what I was looking for. The leather and hardware quality just wasn't there (especially for the price) and they weren't the exact style I was looking for. I thought I was going to have to settle for the last one I bought until I received this jacket. Not only was this jacket more than a 1/3 of the price of all the others I had bought but the quality of this jacket is unbelievable. The price tag attached to this jacket is $495 and I would pay that for this jacket, but it was even better getting it for so much less. This jacket is very well made, the hardware doesn't look cheap, and it fits perfectly. I would normally wear a size medium but I went up to a large in this jacket and it fits perfect. I seemed to notice that these motorcycle jackets run a little smaller. The sleeves were tapered nicely the way they are supposed to be and the shape of the jacket is impeccable (especially for something made in China). My search for the perfect motorcycle jacket is over. If you've been looking for a great moto jacket at a super price this is it!
Well, it all started from my childhood.. lol no seriously there are good things about this jacket and there are some things about it I don't like. The good news or the bad news, ok the good news first: The leather is nice, very soft and may actually be lambskin from New Zealand or Ice land or Never Never Land but where ever it is from the leather is nice and supple and very soft and I am very pleased with that. The cut is very nice too. This is the second leather jacket I have bought at Overstock both being women's jackets with that unisex look to them and yes I'm a guy but I do like the cut and I wanted a nice and tight leather moto jacket, shapely like in the picture. I usually wear Large to XL and the large fit snug on me but since this is a light jacket and not a winter jacket I will keep the smaller fit since I'm sure I won't be wearing it closed all that much but this Large size did fit tighter than the other size Large jacket I bought here. Here are the bad things: The zippers are regular shiny silver zippers, in the picture they look almost black or grey ( look up there )so when I initially opened the box I thought they made a mistake and sent me the wrong one so the photo is definitely misleading. The zipper mechanisms are not high quality and with the tight fit, incidentally I'm a rock musician so I wanted that tight fit I'm sure understand anyway I had to fix the zipper with needle and thread, the zipper started to unthread at the bottom so I think the stitching is also not top construction here. I know I'm squeezing into a tight jacket but hey we're going for a look here : ) Anyway so with all that said all is well now and yes I will keep the jacket for the cut style and the leather quality but for the price the quality could have been slightly better hey made in China Collezione Italia needs to have better quality control and by the way I got this for a price that a day later Overstock went down twenty dollars so that doesn't make you feel to good seeing that the very next day it goes down in price. Anyway I guess I recommend it but again the quality could be a lot better. Cheers I hope this helps.

To make the long story short, this jacket was built beautifully, but it just wasn't my style. My style is more relaxed and beachy and I was hoping that this jacket was going to be more calm, but it wasn't. It is definitely a biker jacket with bright silver hardware. I would only recommend this item to someone who is a true bike rider, or someone who lives in combat boots. Overall, the leather jacket was designed very sturdy and the quality is great!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color matched exactly as the picture shows with the exception of the hardware. The hardware pieces were a bright silver color.

I am very happy with this purchase. The jacket is soft and looks good. Although zippers are silver (I thought that they would be black based on the picture provided), I do not mind because it does not take anything from the overall look of the jacket. If you are looking for a youthful and good quality motorcycle leather jacket, try this one! I am 5.4 and 125 lbs, and usually buy small, but based on previous reviews went with medium and it fits well, can wear with sweaters.

I was very hesitant on purchasing this jacket online because i am a shopper who likes to try things on and see it in person before purchasing it! But i came across this jacket i loved everything about it! I had been shopping everywhere for a jacket like this in pretty much all department stores! It is soo hard to find a motorcycle jacket with extra soft material. what sold me on it was the extra soft material. When i received it in the mail the jacket looked exactly like online the only difference was the zippers appear to be black and the zippers in person were silver which i did not mind at all! If you are looking for the perfect womens motorcycle jacket look no further this is the one! you will love this jacket! order one size up!
