Fit was good! A little snug around the armpit area but I do expect that to loosen up with wear. Exceptional quality for the price, would recommend to anyone looking for a well priced high quality leather jacket that looks great and feels great. Still have to break mine in but in my experience with leather jackets they do tend to break in over time and goatskin is really nice and durable :)
Here is my experience to share. The jacket is made by Mason and Cooper based out of New Jersey, they are a higher end leather product line. I went through 3 red Moto empire jackets until I arrived at the best fit for me. I'm 51 years old, 5'11, 198.6 lbs. I wear a size 43 suit coat, and my sleeve length is 34-35". I wear Levi's 550 relaxed fit jeans 35x34 fit. Use all these numbers when reviewing the following comments in comparison to you. It is hoped this information will enable you to quickly purchase the proper size leather jacket that you'll be pleased with. SIZE: I initially started off with the measurements provided on the web site, and ordered a size large red jacket. I soon discovered that these jackets are "slim" cut, not regular or off the rack cut, thus, you are not meant to wear a sweater or pull over medium-heavy top with this jacket, only a T-shirt or spandex type garment . Thus, the size large was to snug for me. I then ordered the XL, this size was very close to a perfect fit for me but not quite where I was totally happy with the fit. Then I ordered the 2XL, I believe that I could wear more then a T-shirt under it without losing comfort and movement and stressing the seams of the jacket. I settled on the 2XL. COLOR: I noticed that the large size was exactly the same bright red color as worn by the model on the web site. However, both the XL, and 2XL were cherry red, having a darker hue to it, more like a red with a slightly black mixture to it. Actually, for me, I preferred this particular color. QUALITY: The jacket is made of lambs leather, thus, it's very soft to the touch, has few if any defects in it, the overall texture is smooth and uniform. Also, I feel that It is not as tough or durable a leather (long term) as my cow hide or pig skin leather jackets. This coat is more of a unique, attractive, 'where on earth did you purchase that cool jacket'. The quality was better and more impressive then I anticipated receiving for the price. Final thoughts: this particular empire leather Moto jacket can sell on various sites for up to ***, so I was extremely pleased to get it for just over *** delivered to my door. Other then the time involved with swapping out sizes, I am delighted with the purchase and will enjoy having it for years to come!
I was a bit weary when I saw the cost of the jacket as most are much more expensive. Upon receiving the jacket, I was impressed by its weight and sturdiness. I could immediately tell this jacket would last me many years. I would recommend getting some leather conditioner on it immediately as mine arrived a bit stiff but, like all real leather products, it will take a bit of time to break it in. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase!
When this jacket arrived the box was heavy so I new this was going to be a quality jacket. It was a gift for my husband to replace his 30 year old beloved motorcycle jacket and I was worried this would be a hard sell but he instantly loved it! The fit is roomy, the arm length is generous and the leather quality is excellent. My husband did have to have some of tha zipper pulls replaced since he is hard on these but that has not diminished his love of this jacket!
