I think I get more emails and comments asking questions about this leather jacket than anything else I’ve ever worn on here so I thought I would make a review post about it just to give you guys all the details! First things first- this is a leather jacket from angryyoungandpoor.com (a site I know from my days as a punk) and it is this one: classic womens leather motorcycle jacket. As they say on there, if you want the jacket to be tight/fitted you need to size down. Mine is a size XL which according to the measurements is slightly smaller than my bust and about the same as my waist. It really does depend on how you want to wear the jacket though. I personally wanted to wear mine unzipped (mine does not zip up on me) and fitted. If you want to be able to zip it up, you’ll probably want to get your proper size.
At first I was a little disappointed with this jacket because when you first get it, it is very stiff. However, the more and more I wear mine (I wear it A LOT) the softer it gets and the more it sort of shapes to my body which I love. It’s also surprisingly warm, even unzipped!
I have chubby upper arms which sometimes means that a jacket will fit me perfectly everywhere else but be uncomfortably tight on my arms but this isn’t the case at all with the jacket. I could have even got a size smaller and I think it still would have fitted comfortably over my arms.
I really, really recommend this jacket. It comes in size XS to 5XL, costs $75 (with shipping I think it was just under $100 to Australia which is still crazy-cheap for a leather jacket!) and it’s super versatile (click here for more posts featuring this jacket). I hope this answered all of your questions but if not let me know.
