Hi everyone!

Thanks in advance for your advice, I recently bought a lambskin leather jacket ( I can return it within 1 week).

Do you think it fits too tight?

I have lifted weights regularly and might put on a little bit more mass. No doubt this will have some influence.

The next size up is:
+1cm more in shoulders.
+4cm in the chest
+1cm in length
+1cm in sleeves

Notes:
- 2.54cm = 1 inch
- I do have the option of altering the sleeve & waist size.
- Feels a tad tight around the lats
- The chest part still has some room, I can pull it out a bit


Look forward to your honest feedback . Have a great evening .

Lambskin is soft and pliable. It can strech and is likely to.

I like way it fits, in a slim but not seemingly constricting manner. Sleeve length is good, if not 1-2 cm too long (debatable,and I'm not an expert). Body length seems good.

Someone else may disagree with my appreciation though, and I have my own leather jacket sizing conundrums.

Thanks for the fast reply XWT!

I can lift my arms and do the hugging motion without struggle . My only real concern is the lats and the shoulder part. They do seem to fall on the shoulder joint, however, I am worried adding more muscle could make it bad.

Is the extra 1cm in the shoulders worth it?

I'm not sure and I can't really tell for you. I think trying it on is your best bet. Based on the measurements you provided, the next size up is unlikely to look silly on you. You will possibly want to have your sleeves shortened though.

The sleeve part will be easy to alter. Its adding the extra 4cm in the chest i would be most concerned with.
