These Alpinestars gloves look really nice and have the nice knuckle protectors as well as sturdy construction. The only thing to note is that they do run SMALL compared to US glove sizes. I knew ahead and have had no issues. Normally I wear L but after trying on a pair of a friends that were XL I realized i was going to need 2XL. They fit fine with one exception. The right pinky finger was very stiff and uncomfortable (very, very) for the first few rides but just as I was thinking of not wearing them I noticed that it was breaking in finally. Now both gloves feel fine and I'm good to go.

I'm 5'10" & 185lbs and bought the size 54. It fits fine and I paired it with a G2 in the back as well. The arms were a little bit more form fitting than the only other Dainese jacket I've got (a textile) but not to any negative degree.
The liner is awesome and really keeps the heat in during the colder rides and is super comfortable as well. I've only worn is once on a warm day and it was fine but I got a little warm after a while so Phx in the summer probably will not see this jacket used too much, but that's why I got a Dainese textile/mesh jacket anyway. The armor is right as it always seems to be with Dainese dear and there's no change here, solid feel all the way around and in the right places.
The jacket also looks awesome IMO with regards to its cut/shape and the feel of the leather etc. I love the small Dainese logo's on the shoulders. Very understated and very cool.
It's not cheap but it's a very solid jacket in all respects. It's looks great, feels great, fits well even with the G2 in it too and with the thermal liner in it's really nicely warm. I recommend it highly. Dainese makes good stuff and this is classic Dainese.

I'm 5'10" ~185lbs with a 42" chest and got the size 54 wht/red/blk version. It fits great even with a G2 protector in the back slot. I ride in AZ so I usually have the liner out and this thing flows air like crazy and is very comfortable. The fit and finish of the product is fabulous as well with the great looking Dainese shoulder pieces, strong zippers and in my case a nicely subdued logo on the chest. Generally it just fits and feels good with great armor as well for the protection I want.
It's not any big deal to me but it would be nicer if the internal pocket was easily accessible when the liner is in but I don't use it much like I said.
Overall this is a great jacket from all angles of fit, protection, comfort and protection and I love mine.
