    Fit Check: Real McCoy's N-1 Deck Jacket (Navy)

    Hi everyone, I snagged this McCoy's N-1 after the Buzz Rickson ended up not being a fit for me because the armholes were too small. I loved that Buzz Rickson and actually liked its shell fabric better than the McCoy's, so I'm a tad bit sad it didn't work out. That's not a knock on the McCoy's...

    Fit Check: Buzz Rickson N-1 Non-Stenciled Demotex-ed

    Hey everybody, My Buzz Rickson N-1 arrived from HPA. I feel like the overall fit is solid for a N-1 jacket, but it does feel like the arm holes are digging into my armpits a bit. It's nothing that will make me hate the the jacket, but I'm curious about your thoughts on a) the overall fit, b) if...

    Fit check and opinions for this blazer?

    I just purchased a blazer from Nordstrom(brand is Theory) and was curious what people here thought of how the fit looks. Any general opinions on how it looks in terms of how it fits? Also I noticed the rear/butt flaps of the blazer seem to stick out some, is that normal or not? I have a pelvic...

    Fit Check: Iron Heart A-2 Deck Jacket

    I'm torn on this IH A-2 Deck Jacket I picked up recently. The body fits great and the jacket itself is incredibly nice and well constructed. It's also comfy. However, the sleeves are really bothering me. They are slightly long and seems to bunch up between the elbow and the shoulder, making it...

    Schott Peacoat and leather jacket fit check

    Picked up a couple of pieces from Schott during the recent sale and wanted to get the fit checked before I commit to keeping them! For reference I'm 5'9, 155lbs and typically wear a 38S. 740N peacoat, 38: Sleeves are too long but that should be an easy fix. I feel like the body might also be...

    Fit Check: Real McCoy's N-1

    I picked up this size 38 RMC N-1, but I'm wondering if I should size down one. I'm 5'6" and 150 lbs. The chest and length seem fine, but the shoulders and sleeves are a bit large. It looks like sizing down might bring the chest in by a out 2 inches. Any thoughts or familiarity with their sizing...

    Schott 618 fit check

    Hi guys, this is my first time posting; I've been interested in leather jackets for a while now, but this recent months I kind wanted to gear up and buy a good tier jacket which I didn't previously own (only mid-tier staff like European Schotts, Tigha, etc.). So, not wanted to invest that much...

    Fit check on this leather jacket, please

    Hello, Just got this jacket from Iron & Resin. I was initially after a Schott 530, but it is too short in length and sleeves. (I am 6'2".) This Iron & Resin is longer in sleeves and overall, but feels a bit tight. The leather is a thick (1.2/1.3mm) steerhide. Do you think it will stretch with...

    The Real McCoy’s 30S Nelson Fit

    Hello everyone. I recently ordered the Nelson from Real McCoy’s and was wondering if the jacket looks too big on me. I am 5’7”, slim, and have a 35” chest. The jacket is a size 36. Depending on the brand, I’m either a 34 or 36. The Nelson’s smallest size is a 36, so I went with that since 34...

    Fit check on my first leather jacket

    I just got myself a schott 118 perfecto jacket which I've wanted for some time, but I wasn't sure whether the fit is right or not. I've not owned any leather jackets before, so I'm unsure as to how it should fit prior to being broken in. The jacket is snug to put on, and snug in the chest but...

    Looking for fit check on Aero cafe racer

    Hi everyone. I purchased an Aero jacket in the most recent sale and was hoping to get some fit feedback. This is my first real non-fast fashion leather jacket I’ve ever owned, so I’m not familiar with fit outside of them typically looking like overstylized leather cling wrap. I’m a pretty...

    Aero Premier Highwayman in black CXL fqhh with zipped sleeves. Brass hardware. Bought from the Aero's sale section in order to mainly use as a "fit jacket". How would you improve the fit?
