Rated 5 out of 5 by Geezerguitarist Robust leather jacket
I bought the extra large when I usually get the large do to the fact that was what was left. it was fine because it is a fitted size. It is simple with useful interior pocket for the cell phone. The leather is robust. The sleeves were longer than I expected but looks and feels fine! It has buttons on the sleeves which look good but may not be as robust as snaps. I am a little concerned with the cinch buckles on the side scratching leather seats, but that is not a problem yet. I can wear vests and sweaters under it: perfect! It is heavy enough for motor cycle riding. It is similar to a Bates motorcycle jacket I wore in the 1970s but better made. At this point it my favorite jacket, and I have lots!

This is a great option for a casual leather jacket. Great detail on the collar, pockets and side expanders. Nice feel to inside material. Perfectly weathered look. Searched all over the internet for similar jackets and could not find anything that compares. A little pricy, but worth it!

As another reviewer said, although this jacket is listed as "Slim Fit", you should order in your usual size. I'm a 6'2" athletic male and initially tried the XL for fear of a snug fit and promptly exchanged it for a Large that fits very well. The quality of this jacket is superb; dark thick leather that looks like it could stop a knife. All in all, I'm overjoyed with this purchase!

Nice jacket. Leather is heavy but soft. I am 5'10, 180 lbs. Ordered a large initially but it was too big. Medium is good fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ActiveOutdoors1 Awesome Leather Jacket!
Well constructed heavy leather jacket. Nice, slim fit. The first slim leather jacket I've ever owned. To tell you the truth, I'm not surprised that the jacket fit well, because I own a lot of LL Bean clothing and products and I have always been happy with them. Signature Line has been good to me! But back to the jacket.., Nice thick leather. Nice, chocolate color. Arm length is perfect. Overall shape of jacket is formed to give a slender look. Excellent.

This jacket looks even better in person. I had tried the Flying Tiger jacket, but didn't like how boxy it was, or how baggy the sleeves were. This is perfect! I can't wait for the cooler weather and a chance to wear this out. It is classic and built well enough that I know my kids will fight over it when they get older.

Another impeccable LLBean jacket. The leather is very thick and heavy, but soft and broken-in, with lots of large graining. This is not a dressy jacket. It looks tough and rugged and well-used. The lining is not insulated, so it can be worn in a wide range of temperatures with layers underneath. The sleeves are nice and long, and the body is cut short, just below the waist. I love this proportion, which has been nearly impossible to find for a long time. Thanks for this, LLBean.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Although it says "Slim Fit," the sizing is true. I ordered XL thinking it might be snug, and it was exactly one size too big (I exchanged it).
