Nice jacket but big!
Just a beautiful high quality jacket but runs very bulky. You may want to consider one size smaller than normal.
high quality, fresh take on design
I bought this jacket for my 6'4"" tall, 200 lb, husband. I had been searching for a quality leather jacket for over a year. I found it in this jacket. I typically order an XL TALL even though husband is trim/fit 200lbs to accomodate his broad shoulders and 36 1/2 arm length. This XL size proved too wide in the body but he loved the finish/style and feel of leather, so I returned (with no problems) and recieved the replacement L TALL promptly. Fortunately the shoulders still fit well. Sleeve length in the TALL is perfect. The quilted interior is smooth and very well finished, the leather is soft, and considering this is a TALL L the jacket has a comfortable weight (not too heavy). The brown trim is a good contemporary touch. The two snap at sides on base of jacket give him the option to trim up the fit nicely. The collar does stand up but is just long enough to fold down to stay if desired. I purchased during a sale and even though the sale had ended I was sent the replacement jacket at the sale price with free return shipping both ways. Just as pleased with customer service as with jacket so will recommend and look to shop with Territory Ahead in future.
It's expensive but it's worth it. I wear a size 44 and the medium fits perfectly (I usually order a large for all other TA clothes). The jacket is nice and thick. As a motorcyclist, this would be a good thickness for a m/c jacket. This jacket gets me a lot of compliments. It wears well and I have not noticed any problems with the lining referenced in other reviews.
My only criticism of this jacket would be its price. Fortunately, I caught a sale before Christmas and didn't pay full price. That said, this jacket is worth more than your average jacket. It's very heavy and well made. The stand-up collar design is unique and the jacket fits very comfortably. I really love it.
Great Christmas gift
I bought this jacket for my son - he is 6'3"" and weighs about 220. The large fit him perfectly - and he looks so great in it. He lives in New York City, and it is the perfect jacket for wearing around - out to dinner or just hanging out. He loves it - says it will last him a lifetime. A perfect gift. Thanks.
Lining wears out quickly
Overall this is a nice looking and fitting jacket. I have had the jacket for a little over a year. Within just a few months, the lining has begun to fray and tear in the back. This is due to nothing more than average use. The rest of the jacket is in great shape. The tears in the lining are soon going to make the jacket unwearable as the inner insulation is beginning to fall out. At this price, this should be a more durable product. I would strongly recommend against buying this jacket.
I've been looking for a comfortable yet attractive leather jacket for some time. Been surfing the web, stores, etc... Â Finally came across the TA Band of Outsiders leather jacket and I was hooked. Great look. Great feel. Great quality. In short, this jacket is a definite must have. On top of the nice jacket the TA customer service has been exceptional. Â I am 6'3"" and initially ordered the large. After receiving the large it was obvious I needed a large tall. Exchange was flawless. kudos to TA team.Â
This jacket is the real deal. I am 6'4"" 235 lbs 46L and the Tall Large fits like it was tailored specifically for me. It is a great quality jacket that looks and feels better than I ever imagined. This is easily my favorite jacket. I am glad I finally decided to order it. If you are looking for a leather jacket I would highly recommend this one.
Back in Black
Black leather jackets have never really been "me." I've always been more comfortable and drawn to brown leather. However, after finally giving this jacket a try at the last minute, I was surprised at the comfort, fit, and look of it. So I ended up returning a brown leather jacket I was trying out from another dealer/website that cost over twice as much, as it didn't have the fit and feel of this one. So....looks like this is my baby.
I was a little unsure as to what size to get because of the other reviews. I am 6' 195lbs and normally wear a 44 regular. I ordered the large and it fits me perfectly. Overall the jacket seems to be extremely well made. The only negative is that it's difficult to zipper the jacket because of the way the zipper is located, but I am hoping that will sort itself out once it gets broken in. It's a beautiful jacket and the leather is top of the line.

The best leather jacket I have ever owned
I bought this jacket about 1.5 years ago and it is the best leather jacket I have ever owned. The fit is perfect and the weight of the jacket confirms that it is of the highest quality; it can be worn as a casual jacket or even for more formal occasions, and it is heavy enough to really keep you warm. I had never purchased a leather jacket from a website before but since I was on the Territory Ahead website doing some holiday shopping and saw this jacket, I thought I would write a review. It's not inexpensive but in my opinion the quality makes it a great value.
