My experience in buying a Joe Rocket leather VTX jacket: Not all manufacturers' sizing is universal. Best to include YOUR physical dimensions along with the size (L). I bought a supposed XL. Almost everything I buy is XL, and fits me just a little loose. The Joe Rocket jacket was a snug fit at the bottom but not uncomfortably so. I'm 5'10", 215#, and wear a 44 dress jacket w/ 33-34" sleeve length.
