Rated 5 out of 5 by kp4466 I'm wearing this way too much
Like stated already, you don't need this vest. I don't need this vest. No one needs this vest.
But at the same time, everyone needs this vest. You need this vest, I most certainly need this vest. It has almost changed my life. But really.
I am a hoarder of all things leather and this vest is a superb addition to my collection. It is totally and completely wearable, people! Do not fear the somewhat intimidating metal and moto-inspired shape. I opted for this rather than the full jacket as a more versatile piece, and let me tell you--the compliments are non-stop. I've even had people ask if they could try it on.
The quality and worth is real and the usability is incredible. Over dresses, t-shirts, chambrays, SWEATERS, lighter jackets, denim. It is unstoppable.
*Note: the buckle makes a jingling noise every time you move but I fixed it by simply jamming some scotch-tape inside the bar that rotates around the buckle (you'll see it when you get it) and solved the problem!

I love this vest, it is soft, sophisticated and perfect. I was just a bit big on XS, I am size petite.

I really didn't *need* this vest, but I couldn't resist; it's absolutely perfect. I get so many compliments every time I wear it, and it seems to go with just about anything: slouchy tees, lace dresses, etc.
If you're wondering about sizing--I'd say go with a size smaller than you think you need. I find that it's pretty roomy and the leather breaks in beautifully (though it's not stiff to begin with). For reference, I'm usually a L or M in Madewell outerwear, 34E, 29'' waist, and the medium is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nena30 So Edgy!
When I saw this online months ago, I knew I had to have it! I am normally a size 4/S when Madewell states something is "true to size", but I wanted this to be a bit fitted so I ordered the XS. The arm holes are smaller than expected, but everything still fits the way I want it to. A small would have worked for me too, but I'm planning on wearing this with summer dresses and t-shirts instead of bulky sweaters. If I open the back vent zippers, I can comfortably get this vest over a thick flannel. I had to save up for months to afford this, but it's worth it because I plan on having this piece of art for a lifetime!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4Sass just a fun wear
This vest is a lot of fun. Bought it for my daughter and it looks amazing. That said, she is a size 2-4 and the small was way to tight under arms/bust/back.. it fit beautifully around waist and would have kept small except for the under arm cut..
Got the medium and it looks great! The cut under the arm is still just a tad off, but no worries..total keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buttafly537 Great find!
I absolutely love this vest. I wasn't sure what size to purchase but based on previous reviews I ordered a small and it fits perfectly for the look I was going for. I'm 5'5", 135 lb. and it's super flattering. Needless to say I am VERY happy with this purchase.

Great piece for all year wear! A must have for the spring. Fun and comfortable to wear. This vest will get better and better looking with age.
The black slits with zippers allows several different ways to wear the vest.
Whether you wear a skinny fitted top or a loose peasant type top, it has a great shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lindab Great addition to any wardrobe!!
I love this vest!!! Great to throw over anything... looks great over a sundress or with a pair of jeans and a tshirt. The arm holes are not as big as they look in the picture but the fit is still fine. I wear a 4-6 in jackets and shirts and I bought the small, the fit is perfect. The leather is very soft and comfortable. This vest is an investment but one you will wear for years and years layered over anything and everything! Must have!
