Questions about Black Scissors leather jacket sizing.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! I posted this same question in the styleforum, but I figured I'd ask around on here too.
 
I have a question to anyone who owns a Black Scissors leather jacket, particularly if you own their "Colide" which is listed here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/MENS-COLIDE-LEATHER-JACKET-vintage-BLACK-UK-S-/380218983012?pt=UK_Men_s_Coats_Jackets&hash=item5886d14264

I am 5'11" and wear a sz. 38 chest. I usually wear a medium for shirts, and I often opt for size small in jackets to get a fitted look. I notice that their sizing chart says that their smalls run rather larger at 54 cm pit-to-pit, which is like 42 inches around! Their xs runs at 40 inches around. Is this accurate? I tried emailing the company but haven't gotten a response back yet. Just wondering if any of you could offer a reference to whether or not their size small is a true size small and if their listed measurements are a mistake. Thanks in advance!

Not sure about the sizing, but just fyi, Blackscissors is known to make poor quality jackets.  Most of what they do is replicas of high fashion leather jackets, but while some replica makers can do a very good job and make jackets that are literally indistinguishable from the original, blackscissors is at the bottom of the barrel.  From what I've read, their leather is typically low quality and feels like plastic, the worksmanship is sloppy, and their products aren't built to last.  I'd avoid it if I were you.

Cander, thanks for the reply. Yeah, considering they never had the courtesy to email be back after I emailed them twice tells me a lot about their service. Makes me wonder, if I actually bought one of their jackets, would I even see it? Seems like their website has disappeared. Shady bastards.
