Rated 5 out of 5┬áby juju2 Beautiful jacket!
I just received this jacket in the mail and absolutely love it. The sleeves are longer than I think they look in the picture. The leather is light, not bulky, yet still substantial and expensive looking. The fit is true to size, I ordered a Medium which is what I usually wear (size 6-8, Medium). I like the minimal styling of the jacket, the zippers on the sleeves and asymetrical front zipper add just enough detail. I have looked at leather jackets from other designers and think this is a great price for this jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Anon123 Great cut but falls short in a few areas
This jacket has both good and bad points. I love moto jackets but I have a large chest so these jackets usually are very hard to find where they look good. This one looks good. I'm usually a M in many anthro brands (but am usually a 10-14 in jackets) and needed a L in this. Would have preferred a XL in this jacket but they don't make one.
The leather is really soft. It is not full of zippers and studs but there are nice touches like stitching details that make it look unique. The cut is really curvy which is good for us curvy girls of those of use wanting to look a little curvier. The back is also cropped which makes this jacket look great with dresses.
I have normal length arms and rarely have an issue with sleeves being too long. This jacket is too long in the sleeves by 4-5 inches. So I I alter it I will have to cut off the zipper detail at the sleeve. It's also a very expensive (and the tailor told me difficult) alteration being leather with the zipper. The shoulders are also a little tight which is making me not sure if I will put the alterations effort into this jacket. Also this jacket is unlined which doesn't both me but it may both some.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby TaylorKitCat Adorable, on-trend, but...
The jacket IS adorable. It is on trend, and perfect over a white tank with jeans, or over a strapless dress. The outfit choices kind of end there though. UNLESS you are wearing a paper-thin top, no long sleeves are fitting under this jacket. So yes, you can wear it over a long-sleeved tissue turtleneck, but that is about it.
The main issue I had with the jacket is the quality. Yes, the jacket is adorable, but the zipper is precarious, the leather is VERY, very thin, the jacket is unlined, and the sleeves are ridiculously long (I have very long arms and they still hit me half way down my thumb; someone with short arms would have the sleeves down past their fingertips). It really is cute - zipped or unzipped, but in my opinion NOT worth $350. The options for wearing it due to its snugness coupled with the thinness of the leather and it not being lined don't make it worth that kind of money. Another two important notes: the jacket is NOT a satin finish as pictured. It is matte. And the pockets are so small and high they are non-functional; the ENTIRE POCKET is on the outside of the jacket, too - the pouch and all. Some might like this, but at 40 I think it made the jacket look too young for us middle-aged ladies.
