minimalist style, true to form...

Excellent jacket for the money
I was looking for a mid to light-weight summer riding jacket as I head out on a two week ride. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a jacket I couldn't try on immediately and decided to try this jacket out after searching for top-reviewed jackets. I found the Hoodlum jacket on that net search list but that wasn't in stock in my size. This one was so I ordered it.
Out of the box it is a very nice jacket. Buffalo leather exterior and well done interior. The only failing I see is the quality of the zippers. Some feel a bit rough or dry when zipping up and down and they catch. This is the only reason I give this jacket four stars instead of five.
Sizing is dead on for me with a professionally-measured sports jacket I own. I am 6'1", 185lbs and the 42 fit perfectly. It is a little more snug with the lining in and I wouldn't be able to wear a sweatjacket or anything else under that with the lining in. With the lining out, there is a bit more room to layer up if I need to do so. However, since this is a mid-weight jacket for summer riding, it fits my needs perfectly.
Sleeve length and waist width were also spot on. Pockets and finish details are also spot on. Everything looks to be of good or better-than-good quality except for the zippers as I explained. It's not all the zippers either, just a few of them and they may break in with use or a little grease on the teeth.
Over all, I am impressed with the jacket for the price and the build quality and would consider getting the Hoodlum jacket when they get it in my size. This site was also selling them below prices seen elsewhere. Delivery was quick (2 days) and free.

Runs a little large and thats great
Got this jacket in a 46 and I'm 6'0'' and 215 with a little bit of a gut. and this jacket fit me perfect little long in the sleeves but fit is perfect when riding with arms bent. Airflow is great for me. Today was 85 and I didn't get warm or cool. It was just right. I was worried about the gut being to tight since my waist and shoulders measured the same, but like mention it was a good fit and with the adjustable buttons at the bottom you can make it fit just the way you like! Awesome jacket, nice design and would recommend to any body curious or on the fence about a purchase!

This is my first riding jacket so I cant compare to other jackets. BUt can say that this jacket fits great. I have broad shoulders and long arms and orders based on my measurements, the fit was right on. The leather feels thick and the overall design is awesome. The Revzilla price match process was very easy also.

fit details: i'm 5'10'' 185. 32" waist, 40-42 jacket. bought a size 42. fits perfectly.
i bought a bunch of different jackets before i settled on this one. it's comfortable, leather feels sturdy, looks great. distressed look, hide marks are visible, white lines are not glaring white but subdued and look pretty cool. airflow is not bad riding in 90 degree weather, but you get a little sweaty, yeah. at 200 bucks it's a steal, and it's a nice jacket that i can wear out without feeling like a biker dork.

I love the way this jacket looks and fits. The leather looks way better in person than in the video. I wear a 42 blazer and get them taken in a little, so I went with the size 40 and it fits slightly snug, but I like the fit (I'm 6'0" 175 lbs). I really wanted something that I could wear on and off the bike and this jacket certainly fits the bill.

Very solid jacket, good quality leather, well made.
I'm really liking this jacket. It has an inner liner for colder days and plenty of vents for the warmer days. Just finished a weekend of riding in 30-35 degree weather and it keeps the wind out completely! The jacket has plenty of pockets for anything you would want to carry.
Highly recommend this leather jacket. It looks and feels great!

Great Value, Sexy Jacket
I can't recommned this jacket enough. Fairly hefty leather, vents amazingly well in the heat (I just finished an 1hr ride in 80F), and has a thick liner that should hold up well in the cold.
Is a little big in the stomach area, but not uncomfortably so.
Great looking simple jacket for an excellent price.
Plus my wife loves when I wear it.
