Sidecar Biker Jacket

Sidecar Biker Jacket is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Great interpretation of the moto jacket - the green is a lovely color, quilted shoulders a nice touch, and the snaps on the sides to create a snugger fit are great. It does run small. XXSs are usually a little too big for me and this was just a tad snug through the shoulders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile, always looks great I bought this jacket a few weeks ago and have worn it almost every day since. It is very comfortable, has nice pockets and looks good with everything. Definitely a "must have".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Cropped Jacket--Tight Arms, but Nice Details I loved this jacket! The shoulder details are unique and really add to the style of the piece. Like other reviewers, I found the arms to be a little tight, but I'm not planning on wearing anything heavier than a tee under this, so I didn't mind. The cropped shape looks great open and closed. A definite winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be better I ordered a small in black; I am normally a 0 or xs and am 5'7. I am glad I sized up (which I did to get the length) because the arms are a little snug and I imagine the XS would be tighter and shorter. That being said, there are snaps at back bottom to bring the jacket in and zippers on arm cuffs to loosen. It is not too boxy or too short. It looks really nice on - a good option instead of leather and can be worn year round. Having looked for a moto jacket for awhile, I am glad I chose Madewell - confident enough to order online without ever having seen it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from perfect for spring i'm obsessed w/moto jackets and had to have this. The detailing is beautiful. My favorite part would be the shoulder padding (you have to see's not really shoulder pads!). The one con to this jacket is if you are tall, or have a really long torso you might wish the length was a bit longer. It's definitely a cropped jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Biker Jacket I found this jacket to fit really well and look great. Not much give to the fabric but the size was perfect. I didn't find it to be super wide or boxy at all. It fit just like it does on the model. I am not sure if I find it a bit too cropped on me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from runs ridiculously small So I had the opposite issue as the other reviewer. I wear an extra small in everything; the arms and shoulders were so snug on this that I could barely get the jacket on. I didn't even get to the width of the body of the jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute, but way too wide. So, I ordered this in a medium… which is the size of shirt/jacket I always wear. The size guide confirms that I should wear a medium in this jacket. However, it is suuuuper wide. You can tell before even putting it on that it is really wide. It's almost like… cape wide, weird. Either way I am exchanging it for a small and hopefully that will work because I love the style and color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good quality but poorly cut This jacket was cute, wanted to love it but as with other reviewers found it was cut ridiculously small in the arms. The fit is just off, overall too small throughout.
