My son's girlfriend really wanted a nice little black leather jacket as a gift, so I searched everywhere until I found this one. It is fitted with fabric near the back seam (which gives it some freedom for movement and does not take away from the overall look). She didn't want too much hardware so it looked "biker-ish", and this fit the bill perfectly. She absolutely loved it. She is a small girl and would normally take a size SMALL, but I purchased the MEDIUM in case she wanted to wear a sweater underneath. The M fit perfectly and still gave her a little room for sweater underneath. In fact, she was given another leather jacket by someone else that same day, a very expensive designer name brand that cost hundreds more, and she kept mine (this one).
