As someone who already has some brown suede/leather jackets, I'd get the black here. But I think I'm just a smidge too fatso for the XL.

This is legitimately a TERRIBLE picture, but this is me in a large with something that is less of a knit and more of a base layer. I believe the XL will be a better fit.

oh man that black looks so good (do i need both???).

but i really dig the brown, especially because the leather (which is so, so soft) will darken some with wear and exposure. mine has gone from this tan-ish color to a bit of a richer light/mid brown.

ETA: i got the jacket in 2017, so this is with about 3 winters worth of wear.

I'll bring mine brown one in tomorrow to do a back to back comparison with a brand new one. Curious to see how it looks in the same light!

This is a beautiful shade. Do you do any regular maintenance/care for the jacket?
