The jacket is stylish with very thick and soft leather. My only warning is the sizing. My suit jackets or a 38 short. that is a medium size in most companies. I ordered a small and I was swimming in it. But I loved the jacket so much I re-ordered it in an extra small and it is my favourite thing, I love it more than my children LOL! I’m still waiting to hear back about my return, so I cannot speak to that. It’s only been three weeks. FYI I’m 5’ 8” 155 lbs. X small fits perfect.
This is my second Jesse James jacket. My first jacket I gave to a friend because it was too large for me and I waited too long to return it. The original buttons were a solid 4 piece design. When I received a second Jesse James jacket in large, I was put off by how loose, noisy and cheap feeling the buttons are. So loose that they hang and bobble around unlike of the original buttons that were weighty and tight. Since I kept the spare button from the original jacket, I was able to do a comparison to the spare button on the new jacket. The new buttons are a simple two piece design that feel and look like cheap aluminum dollar store buttons. I don't feel they will last without falling apart. There's also some kind of charcoal substance I believe they used on the buttons to give them a distressed look. Problem is, that substance comes off on your fingers when buttoning the jacket. Overall, the leather and look of the jacket is nice but the buttons cheapen the look. I just can't justify paying over $300 for a jacket where the manufacturer took an obvious short cut to save a dollar. For now, I'm keeping my ranch hand that has the original buttons and sending this Jesse James back for a refund. Maybe when they switch back to the better quality buttons, I'll buy another one of these.
I have been wanting a western style leather jacket for alot of years. I have had my eye on this Jesse James. I finally pulled the trigger and am absolutely thrilled with it. Sturdy and Style. I am 5'9" and weigh 160. I usually wear a medium but after taking measurements and looking at the size chart I decided on the small and it fits perfect with a little bit of room to share. If you are thinking about it, I would buy it. This Jacket is a Bad MoFo!
I have the Jessie James and the Jericho and I love love both of them. These are the Real Deal I promise
I’m truly in love with this coat when people think of leather jackets this is what they should think of
