    Hi,

    Does anybody own a gucci leather jacket and can help me out with the size? How much do these leather jackets break in? In size 48 the jacket is pretty tight in the shoulders, but looks better when opened. At the neck on the back the leather folds up because I have broad shoulders. Will the leather widen with time? With size 50 I have no Problems with the shoulders at all especially when closed, but looks more bulky as my waist is rather small... What size should i get?

    I would take it to tailor specializing in leather. Assuming that you have a good one nearby. With leather, you only get one shot at getting it right, so it's important the tailor know his chops.

    Wait, you smell that?
    I have this problem with some articles of clothing. Most important is that the shoulders and chest fit. If too tight, it's the wrong size. I doubt it will stretch to fit.

    Yes, but I read a Leather Jacket should be slim fitted or even to buy a size smaller as the leather may stretch
