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
I’m not sure I’d like the sound of “Neanderthal” if I wanted a traditional style leather jacket like this. I personally like this style but I’m choosing to believe they weren’t choosing the name as being descriptive of their target customer :)
Anyway, this style is classic and needs no further review from me. The leather is thick and feels like high quality and the overall build quality is good too. The jacket has four zip pockets for storage in front (none inside though). For climate control, the jacket has a nice full-sleeve quilted/insulated liner, which, along with the weight of the leather, should give pretty good warmth in the winter. In summer you can remove the liner of course and the jacket shell has a couple zip vents on the front and a large horizontal zip vent on the back for exhaust. With the V-neck style, you are likely to move some air through the front and along with the air flow through the two sleeve zippers, the venting should be decent.
Compared to a lot of really “cheap” black leathers out there, this one really is a nice unit. :: Paul, 04-01-16
About the new Black Brand gear: This line of gear was introduced in 2016. The gear is moderately priced, and is very good overall quality. It comes from the same folks that produce River Road which is a line of cruiser gear that has been around for MANY years. We’ve carried River Road for at least 10 years and we like it. From what I can tell, the Black Brand is more or less a “re-branding” of that line. You can buy these products with confidence with regard to quality and service after the sale.
