We checked out the size of these jackets on our Fit Check mannequins Laverne (who is a size 6) and Shirley (who is a 12). We had a size Small for Laverne and a size Large on Shirley, and both fit well. So I conclude the size chart offered by River Road is pretty accurate. You can use your measurements to pick a size, or use your dress size. Hopefully both will correspond to the same size. If anything, the two jackets fit a bit loose, but the mannequins only had a light tee shirt underneath, so if you are somewhere between sizes in the chart, I’d recommend the smaller of the two.
|Dress Size||6||8 – 10||12 – 14||16 – 18||20 – 22|
|Bust Measurement||34 – 36||38 – 39||41 – 43||44 – 45|
|Waist Measurement||27 1/2 – 28 1/2||30 – 31 1/2||33 – 35||37 – 39|
|Hip Measurement||37 – 38||40 – 41||43 – 45||47 – 49|
Our Two Cents
The new Twin Iron jacket is the third new leather style I’m reviewing for the 2014 season by River Road. We have added a total of four new styles to the site, and I’m finding they all are functionally very much the same, but they vary by the styling, color and texture of the leather. The Twin Iron is a combination of thick/soft black leather with cream leather accents which is a very “vintage” style. The cream leather has been made to appear a bit dirty, soiled, whatever as if you’ve used the jacket for years. I think if you click through and view our close-up photo gallery, you’ll be able to see this. These River Road styles are great for the bike, but also for casual wear. For climate control on the bike, this jacket includes zippered venting… on the upper shoulder and in the rear. And for cooler weather, you can close those zippers and utilize the removable full-sleeve thermal liner. The liner is “mid weight” and should provide good insulation and then of course you can layer with other clothing from there. Also, you get the usual storage pockets most motorcyclists like… hand warmer pockets, a wallet pocket inside and a couple storage pockets in the liner. The jacket does not come with armor, nor are there any provisions for adding it. The thing I like most about these jackets is the look and styling of the leather. Overall, I really like this style for the “retro” looks and the quality of the leather. :: Paul, 11-25-13
