We measured the size run in this style jacket, and found the chest and waist sizes to match up to the size chart provided by Black Brand (see below). Most people will be able to choose the size they normally wear in men’s clothing, but I’d recommend you throw a tape around yourself and check your chest and belly and make sure that the size you choose will be big enough for both.
The overall height of the jackets is normal and the overall cut is normal to relaxed. Most people shouldn’t have trouble finding a good fit.

Our Two Cents
The Carnivore jacket by black brand is a great looking, very well made “classic” style jacket. The offset zipper and wide double collar are key design features. Note: This jacket is a slightly distressed darker brown rather than black (like the factory images show).
Functionally, this jacket is a lot like the Carry On jacket but without the straps to bundle the jacket into a roll (read all about that on the Carry On product page). This jacket has a couple zip vents on the biceps and two vertical zips in back so it will move “some” air, but I don’t think this jacket will be comfortable in hot weather. But it will shine in colder weather. The removable thermal liner is thicker than average and is full sleeve, and with the leather shell, I think it would do well in cold weather. So lets say this one will work in cold to warm weather.
As I mentioned above, the leather is a slightly pre-distresses darker brown color. There are several nice styling details here… the expansion material behind the shoulders (which are also functional to improve mobility), the quilting on the elbows and kidney area and the large side waist adjuster buckles. I also think the perf leather collar trim is sharp too.
This jacket doesn’t come with armor, but you can add D3O in the pockets that are built into the shoulders, elbows and back. I’d suggest the CE level 1 armor for this jacket. I think the thicker stuff would make the arms and shoulders too tight for most people.
I checked the built in gun pocket and it is very well built the lining of the pocket is very sturdy material that should work well. The wide lapels are fully functional and each tip has a snap to keep them in place as to not flap in the wind. Overall a very nice looking quality cruiser style. :: Paul, 04-11-18
