I plan to order one of these or an M-422/55J14 in the next few weeks. I got stumped by the S,M, L sizing. Can anyone here provide their numerical chest size or weight and what size they ordered? I know there's a sizing chart on each listing but would like to hear what you guys went with.

PS, the A-1 looks phenomenal Shawn. Really.

I've purchased 5 jackets from Shawn to date, and all were made-to-measure for me. Shawn also sent pics when they were completed showing that my requested measurements were followed.. All fit perfectly as expected. :)

I have just received my Fivestar A-1 jacket, custom fit made to my measurements. For the price this is a stitch perfect constructed jacket in a nice supple goatskin leather and I cannot praise it enough. Reddish brown with rust knits, I paid extra for the horn buttons. Received the jacket less than a week from placing the order.Great customer service from Shawn, who was always quick to reply to my questions.

When I received my jacket I was very pleased with the quality but thought that the measurements I had given had made it a bit too slender a fit, but on measuring the jacket recently I have seen that it actually measures 1 cm less at shoulder, 2 cm less pit to pit, 3 cm less in sleeve and 4 cm less in length, so not really a custom fit after all, maybe leather is difficult to cut accurately when taking in to account the stitching of the various panels. Going to pass this jacket on to my Nephew who is a lot younger and slimmer.

Well, I think the fit is ok. I do not see anything too slender. Maybe the sleeves are 1-1,5 cm too short for my taste. Actually I think it may be a little too big around the stomach.

Yes, it`s really in the sleeves and back across the shoulder blades, it feels a bit too tight when you move your arms, so I need more leather pit to pit and therefore a bit more in the upper back, can only be worn over a shirt which is Ok but still a bit restrictive in movement.

1cm at shoulder and 2cm p-p isn't going to make a huge amount of difference, it would be different if you were talking inches. Wear it to death and it will form to your body shape.

Thanks, if it swamps my Nephew when he tries it on then maybe I will just hang on to it and hope it molds to my shape a bit better.

With a jumper on I can barely move my arms, so tight is the fit, decided to pass it on to my more slender Nephew, sure he will love it.

Who is this Changeling guy? Seems his tape measure is way out, he measures several times and comes up short every time. I think I will just stick with my A2, which is my favourite leather jacket style of all time, but I do recommend Fivestar for a good quality jacket at a low price for those who are still thinking of buying one of their jackets.

Hi ,,big thanks to Shawn for getting my jacket delivered so quickly,,shame DHL made a mess of delivery but it’s here now,,I’m pleased and it will do the job,,comfortable and great goatskin,,but like others have said the smell !!its definitely the packaging so I’ve no doubt it will go,,it’s outside now airing..only change I would suggest is smaller buttons & better quality lining ,,but for the price it’s a real bargain,,thumbs up from me

Just measured my jacket that I received yesterday.everything bang on ..grain already starting to show and no need to baby this jacket.For the price paid people should think twice before nitpicking.Everyone on vlj knows the price of original jackets & the top repo manufacturers work,so the bottom line is that if you have the money by all means spend £800 & if things ain’t to your satisfaction kick up a fuss,,but this jacket is what it is,,I have spent £1000 on a jacket and been upset about a missed stitch,,ffs ,talk about real world problems lol,as long as the sleeves on this jacket don’t fall off I’m happy :)
