My new roadster arrived today. It only took five business days from ordering... impressive. Here are my observations, pictures and a couple questions on fit: Alexander Leather Roadster Seal Jerky Horsehide size 42 Observations: - The color and finish are exactly what I was hoping for. Rich finish and very dark color. - Smells just wonderful. Not even close to the department store leather jackets that smell like some kind of protective coating. - I am 5'9" and 172lb and normally wear a 40R suit jacket. This jacket is a 42 and I would definitely not go any smaller. - Man, is this thing stiff. Going to take a concerted effort to make it comfy. 350 miles in the car tomorrow will be a good start. Here are some pictures. Sorry about the GoPro wide angle shot. I'll get some proper shots with an actual smile on my face in a couple days! I absolutely love the jacket. My only slight concern and question is around length. I'm not used to wearing shorter jackets in this style. As you can see in the photos, it comes down just about to the bottom of my belt. I think I'll get used to the feel of a shorter jacket, but would love to hear thoughts from the forum on the length. Also, I had posted about a week ago on sleeve length... as it turns out, the sleeves are perfect. I'm glad I didn't have them shortened! Thanks for all the guidance - looking forward to enjoying this jacket for a very long time.
