Runs small, cure design
Gorgeous design but arms run very small. I have very skinny arms and the sleeves are still very tight. Leather is on the thinner side and the lapels are huge on petite frames (I am 5'1, XXS, 105 pounds). Shopbop's customer service is amazing as usual!
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Very pretty but not for petites
Gorgeous jacket, well cut and great material. However, it is not for petites on the shorter side. I am 5 ft 2, 100 lbs, medium width shoulders,and the jacket fits loose on me. The arms are also too long but easily remedied by folding.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Gorgeous, the most beautiful ALC jacket!
I'm so waiting for this jacket to go on sale after seeing it in real life. Unlike the other ALC leather jacket designs, this style fits true to size and the leather is incredible. It is so soft. ALC jackets typically run very tight in the bust, waist, arms, and shoulders and this jacket is not an exception. Size up if possible! Unlike the other ALC styles, this design is worth the money with its interesting collar and button details.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Very heavy and runs very small
Runs very very small like all a.l.c leather jackets. I am usually an extra small or petite 0 in most designers but this jacket is made for supermodels. I have regular shoulders (not broad), 34A and 25 inch waist, 105 lbs. I also have skinny arms. I could barely zip up the jacket and the shoulders were still a very snug fit. I sized up to a 2 and will probably still be able to wear a 4. Could barely move my arms with this jacket. The jacket is also very heavy, weighs almost 4 lbs on its own!! The sleeves are also very long. One of my friends who is even more petite than me with a 23 inch waist could only zip up halfway but jacket does not fit over her chest. She could barely get arms in and the sleeves were extra long on her. I think this is the reason why the larger sizes in a.l.c jackets (size 6 and above) almost always sell out faster than the smallest sizes. It's not about how thin you are, you also need to have a tiny waist and almost no chest to fit in this jacket
Sizing: Smaller than Expected
