Black Leather Racer Vest

Black Leather Racer Vest is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally something for small people! I will say, upfront, that my vest came with a flaw -- the pocket lining had a hole in the corner, which bugs me. However, a) I purchased this on final sale, and b) it wouldn't have been a deal breaker anyway. The leather is beautiful and thick, the details streamlined but present without being overwhelming on my petite frame, and the well-cut fit is what sealed the deal. Reading the other reviews, I was confident that it would fit (I am 5'1", 100lbs, slim). Madewell XXS is fairly hit and miss on me, and their pants in size 24 are too big (sadly). But, this was cut a little smaller, and it looks and feels beautiful. I needed something to go under jackets for colder weather and over dresses / shirts for brisk summer days. It fulfilled my needs excellently. Personally, I don't have the cash to buy leather goods on full price (at all), so I would recommend that others make the investment while they can. This is a beautiful, well-made (except for that darn hole), and versatile piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic and Beautiful I'm in love with this biker vest, especially at the sale price. It is a steal!!!!! I followed the other reviewers and sized up from my normal Madewell XS to a S. For reference, I'm 5'2" and about 110 lbs. I think I could have still taken an XS, but then would not have been able to wear long sleeved tops/sweaters under it. The leather and hardware quality is absolutely stellar. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So nice! Super heavy leather so the quality is good--not that paper thin stuff you get at some stores. Seems to run a bit small in the shoulders so I wish I would have ordered a large. Great vest though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful but runs small I usually order a small or a medium at madewell. I should have ordered a Large in this vest.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks cool This vest looks cool and up to date as far as style is concerned. I'm quite disappointed that it is quite heavy and the leather is stiff. I hope it softens with time; otherwise this vest is a good wardrobe addition as it can be worn for three seasons.
