To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I received this jacket a couple of days ago. For reference I'm close to 5ft 4 and about 122 lbs and purchased a S. I ordered the color Hickory. It looks a bit different than the display image, especially the color. I wasn't too crazy about that, however it's not a bad color at all. The jacket is very soft and almost looks like vegan leather (which I wear too) but I haven't had this type of leather in many years, so I was thrown off a bit. It is of medium thickness as most lambskin jackets are not made with thick hides.I mostly just had cowhide leather, so that was the problem for me, but it feels and smells like genuine leather. Overall I like the jacket, except for the fact that it is not as long as it is shown on the model. I bought this at a good discount and haven't regretted my choice. This jacket does come in some nice colors and while I haven't worn it yet, I can still tell how well it will hold up to the cooler weather, I would say you can wear this with a medium thickness sweater in 45 degree weather or even with a t shirt in 50 degree weather. I would like to wear it now, but it's too hot :). Also, remember that unlike cowhide leather, this is a different type. Water and rain can ruin it, so don't wear it in the rain, or let any liquid on it. It will get ruined. If even going out and there is a chance of rain and you just decide to wear it, bring along a light backup jacket to protect this. I hope my review is helpful :). Update: for the reviews that say this runs small... It DOESN'T run small, at least the color I got doesn't. I've gained a full size of about 10 -12 lbs and still fits, a bit more snug but not super tight. The jacket is a thinner leather because it's not cowhide but lambskin which tends to be thinner. Also as far as sizing, there are women who want to believe that they are smaller than they actually are, which can happen when buying l higher end clothes (which some normally would run a size bigger). I've had the same problem because I recently gained a few lbs and ordered a size 2 in Democracy pants and were too big when now I'm close to or am a size 4... keep that in mind.
This well made jacket was exactly what I was looking for. The leather is buttery soft and the color (cement) is gorgeous. It's killing me that I have to send it back because with my long waist it looks like I outgrew it, but it fits everywhere else. Not the fault of the design, I just need it to be at least two inches longer. So disappointed.
color - ordered in navy. so dark, almost black. weird dingy matte finish.
fit - runs very small. I ordered my normal size, and can't even come close to closing the jacket. tight in the shoulders. forget the chest. fit model must have been flat as a board. will have to wear it open, or give it away cause I didn't send it back in time due to Covid.
quality - very thin leather. because the shoulders are tight, I feel like I will rip it out if I move the wrong way. will not keep you warm in a biting wind. may be OK for one season in LA if you want to flash a label and trend , but not built for east coast weather.
Beautiful well-made jacket. I ordered a size up on the suggestion of a friend. The jacket runs true to size so it was way too big. Unfortunately, Amazon was out of my true size. Had to go to a different store to get it in the navy blue color.
Beautiful jacket and I would've liked to keep it but the way the darts are in front- the point hits right at mid-breast, appears as if nxxples are showing through. Missed the return date so I guess I'm stuck with it.
