Re: Women's leathers
I know this thread is pretty old, but i'm going to bump it to the top.
I noticed women's leather jackets run really small. Well, from my experience with Alpine Star at least. I am 5'8/135lbs and my Joe Rocket textile jacket is a medium. It fits me very well in lenth and around (it has the tabs to cinch/adjust the waist). I tried on many sizes in the Alpine Star jackets, but they seem to run short and really tight. I even went up to a size 10 and it was still very short in the arms. I can deal with fitted throughout the body and chest, but the length would not work.
Does anyone know of another brand that might be a better fit for taller girls? I'm by no means overweight (i'm a fitness fanatic actually), but these jackets make me feel like a giant.
Your help is appreciated.
