This jacket is a trim cut street leather jacket and it fits a bit more snugly than most casually styled jackets like this. We measured a selection of sizes and also tried these on our fit test mannequins. Huey is wearing a medium and Dewey is in the XL. These are the sizes they normally wear. The fit is trim but looks good.
I’d advise to choose the size you normally wear in men’s clothing if you are looking for the trim fit this jacket offers. If you prefer a more casual fit, or are between sizes, then you’ll want to choose a size larger. To make size selection easier, we’ve developed the chart below to help you choose a size based upon your chest and belly measurements. If you have a bit of a belly, just make sure that the jacket you choose will be big enough for both your chest and belly.
Note: if you plan to add a back protector to this jacket, then add 1” to the chest/belly measurements before choosing a size.

Our Two Cents
This Ronin Black Ops jacket is a special “murdered out” version of the standard Ronin jacket. Below is a description of the finish by Roland Sands which I think sums it up nicely. To see all the features, inside and out, take the link below to the “regular” version of the Ronin and have a look through the photos:
Stealthy, covert, understated, murdered out; these are a few words that describe The Back Ops collection by RSD. This unique collection draw’s it’s inspiration from the two-tone black finish of our premium motorcycle hard parts with a special focus on the fit, finish and details. The Ronin Black Ops jacket is constructed of a new hand finished leather coined, Combat, which is soft and supple with a slight matte finish. Lastly, we developed rubberized matte coated trims on buttons, snaps and zipper pulls to finish off the blacked out look.
