 This is a great overall fit...you have the right amount of room to layer underneath if you want, but it looks good with just a t-shirt!  Both the body and sleeve lengths look good with no adjustment necessary...
 There are many other colors available, but unfortunately Vanson no longer has a burgundy/oxblood color option (they called it Wine)...we do have a version of this color available through Aero (they have Cordovan and Russet in both horsehide and steerhide).  Vanson does have a beautiful dark brown that has been a popular custom order for us!
 The Z150 will stretch a little at pressure points (elbows, chest and shoulders) and it is water resistant like the Comp. Weight...the finish is very similar, so we sometimes refer to it as a lighter weight Comp. Weight cowhide!
 The gussets start a little further in at the top of the shoulder (rather than right at the seam where the arm meets the shoulder), so this does tighten up the features to make the shoulders appear more narrow.  This is done so that there aren't so many seams coming together at the same point.  However, we've also only seen smaller fit jackets thus far, so they would naturally appear more narrow.  The size large, for example, doesn't look this way...  Regarding moving the...
 The leather used is Z150...it has a similar finish to Vanson's standard Comp. Weight cowhide, but it's somewhat lighter in weight and much more flexible.  It will break in quickly, but it's still really durable...it looks better the more you "abuse" it!
 Nice!!  Thanks for putting this thread up on the main page--we hope to see more fit photos showing a wider range of sizes in the next few days!
 The fit looks really good!!  It's a slightly looser fit that looks great zipped and still keeps its shape unzipped.  The length works well too...it's a little longer than what's considered a classic crosszip length (which tends to end around the belt line), but that's what gives this style a sleek look...it's more of a cafe' racer silhouette than a shorter "rocker" look. Regarding the lining, the extra cost for this is $50.00.  The shipping cost back to us is separate and...
 The places where you put the most pressure--elbows, shoulders, chest--will "give" a little over time, along with becoming softer and more flexible.  You'd probably be happiest with the XS once it breaks in, rather than going for an initially comfier fit with the S...
 We have another customer we need to fit using this S/M (most of our jackets are doing double and triple duty for fittings), so for an extra $50.00 you can get the S/M made with the floral liner!  Otherwise, we should have one with the standard black liner available once this round of fittings is done...  A S/M Daredevil made with a floral liner should be through production in about 8-10 weeks!
 It will depends on how you want to wear the jacket...if you plan to wear it unzipped a lot, then stick with this size.  The snugger/smaller fit keeps it's shape when worn open and the leather will soften up a lot as you wear it!  If you plan to wear it zipped up with extra layering, then you could go up to the S, but perhaps with some length taken off the body (it's only .25 inches longer, so that may no be necessary).  You should test the tighter fit with a layer...
