    Quick question, will 43cm (~17inch) shoulder-to-shoulder and 46cm (~18.1inch) pit-to-pit fit me as XS / small S ? The pit-to-pit seems to be perfect, but the shoulders seem big in contrast, what do you think?

    Hey, gentlemen. Remember all the talk about this leather jacket? I ended up buying it like 6 months ago when it went down $100, which I viewed as free shipping, and so could justify their outrageous shipping charges. But as other people guessed at the time, it's nothing special. Leather was stiff in a bad way and felt on par with the local Canadian discount leather retailer Danier, i.e. not to most peoples' standards around here. Also the medium fit like a 36 and I'm a slim 40. They had a sizing chart but it clearly wasn't very accurate. It's unlined aspect didn't seem to be a problem, but I never actually wore it out, so what do I know.

    Long since returned.

    Anyway, there's your year old review: nothing special and not worth the price.

    Why doesn't Margiela make this jacket for men?

    Looks like a 5yo wanted to make his "own" version of a 5-zip. That is hideous.

    Cool thanks for the input. Out of curiosity why don't you like the first one? As far as price goes, I think these jackets retail for about $180 each.

    With leather especially, you get what you pay for.
