I'd read other reviews of this leather coat and knew it ran small, so I got a large for my sister, who wears a size 12 or 14. It was WAY too small for her. The quality of the jacket was nice, the leather soft, although I wasn't too impressed with the stitching on the collar. But the main issue is the size. If you normally wear a large, forget this jacket!
I always buy a large in coats, so I can wear sweaters or suits under them. This jacket, while very nice, is really a medium at best and maybe even a small. Sleeves were very tight and was never able to button it. Unfortunately this coat did not come in X-Large.
The jacket is beautiful and the leather is so soft that I had to check the tag to make sure it was actually leather. It was exactly what I was look for and I can't wait to wear it. I'm actually looking forward to winter just so I can wear this jacket !I read the reviews from others who had ordered this jacket that said it fit about 2 sizes smaller than they expected. I followed the chart which said if you usually order a SMALL size, the Italian size would be a LARGE, so I ordered a large. The jacket definitely fit like an American large so I got online and ordered a size small before I even started the return process for the large one. The large one will be on it's way back tomorrow and I will patiently wait for the small one to arrive.
