I bought this because I wanted a light leather jacket for cool spring evenings I like the lining too as it is not to heavy. This is just exactly what I was looking for. Thanks again T.A.
Love it, but probably will return
I love this soft leather jacket...ordered the large which will fit with a sweater under but when tried it on the elastic in the cuffs is almost non existent, ie. no stretch to it, and the cold new England breeze will fly right up my arms...I am tempted to have my tailor put in new elastic but hate to spend more money on an expensive purchase..will be deciding in the next day or two. Darn...did you have other comments about the cuffs or is just this jacket?
Good to Go
Not my first leather purchase from TA but was pleasantly surprised; read all reviews and thought I might be returning this one. I am 5'3"", approx.140 lb. and ""older"" with a figure to match (ie a tummy!) so it's hard to say if it's true to size. I could wear it over a med.wt. sweater. This hoodie fits me well, but I bought a large due to other reviews; it is NOT overly large on me, I do not think it looks baggy, etc. The body lining is cotton/linen I may iron it on low setting as it is a bit wrinkled from packing; sleeve lining is nylon. Sleeve length is just right, and a worry was the elastic sleeve ends - but they are OK, not tight/loose. I'd like an inside pocket but that might make the garment not hang properly. The color might be better described as ""butterscotch"" - not a color I particularly like, but it's OK as in 'different'. Very soft leather, I hope it lasts. Other leather jackets from TA were heavier and I subsequently don't wear them often. This one is a keeper. My only complaint is the price (but I did get it on sale with no shipping charge). I am generally happy with it. It is a different sort of jacket, distinctive and chic.
Had to return
I waited three years for this jacket to go on sale with free shipping. I wanted the XS but it was sold out so I ordered the small, hoping that it might not be too big. Unfortunately, it would fit someone who weighed 30 pounds more than me. I would guess it was equivalent to a size 4 or 6. Even an XS would have been too big. Even if the jacket had fit I would have returned it. The jacket I received was a stiff leather, not soft and supple. An inferior grade. Too bad for me.
