Fit

Slightly Small
Large
By the video I bought a jacket 2 sizes smaller than I normally buy. The Large was too tight in the arms. Xlarge was still snug in the arms. I spent another $50.00 to have the tailor modify the arms by getting rid of the adjustment straps and puting a zipper on the end to get rid of the extra fabric at the gauntlet. The forearm and upper arm were still snug but useable. The lower pockets could have use a side opening to warm your hands when walking with your gloves off. The stitching on the inner linning was not finished as nice as the Tourmaster nor was the detail to the type and color to the latches on the end of the sleeves or waist line.
No, I do not recommend this product.
