the sizing measurements gave the impression that this thing would be huuuge. almost unrealistically huge. i took a chance and got a small, wine colored one anyways. it just arrived in the mail, and first off the sizing was totally wrong. whoever wrote it probably shifted all the measurements by 10 inches (so instead of 44 inches it said 54 inches, etc). so i could barely zip the small around my waist, and zipping the neck up kinda prevents me from breathing. a medium would've been perfect for a slim fit, and a large would've been good for a baggier fit. and to make matters worse, the color is totally wrong. the picture makes it look almost like fruit punch. the one i got was not nearly as bright, more like very dark rust for lack of a better term. the jacket looks nice though, and i still would've liked it if i had gotten a medium, despite the misleading color in the picture. but i can hardly fit in it, so i might just sell it.. for the record, i'm 5'9" and 160 lbs. if the sizing measurements sound odd, you might want to ignore them. they're probably wrong.
