The coat is very stylish, but it smells like dye and new leather. We are keeping it because men's full length leather, with style, has been difficult to find. We are definitely going to allow some time for it to breathe
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!
