I bought this jacket to replace my current "distressed" bomber which was so distressed the leather was thin in places. 3 years and two rips later was enough. That jacket was an expensive dissapointment from Columbia. I was worried that this "distressed" jacket would be too broken in too. It isn't and as you can tell from other reviewers, it does arrive pretty stiff for a distressed jacket. No worries as far as I'm concerned. I want it to break in for me and my shape. Especially at this price, I'm very happy with the jacket. My suit size is a 43-36W and the large was a good fit for me, just don't expect to wear a bulky sweater under it. Only complaint is that it really had to be aired out for awhile. The leather smell was overpowering for a week or two. I love this jacket and so does my son. He'll be getting one for Christmas. Merry Christmas!!
I received my jacket in good condition and very quickly. I was however, concerned about whether or not the size would be right. Most of the reviews I read, said to order a size bigger than I usually take. I wear between a large and extra large. I ordered XL. It is a little bit too big. But for a motorcycle jacket, it is just right. I can wear more clothes under it and still have plenty of room for a comfortable ride.The sleeves are extra long and with the way the back of the jacket, around the shoulders is constructed, reaching your arms straight out is not a problem. I do think I will cut the half belt with the tin foil buckle off though.
Very nice jacket leather was impressive to the touch Smooth and soft reminds me of *** The design of the lighter areas all over the jacket was a little different but that kind of makes it stand out. The removable lining was a plus so the coat would fit better if I wore a sweater under it. Very good buy !
