    I ordered the Black Denim vest. I have a 50″ Chest which makes me a 2XL so I ordered a 3XL to ensure I got a exact fit, figuring that their might be some shrinkage once it was washed. I irrevocably got the product today and it wasn’t even close to fitting, as it was at least two sizes to small. I am thinking that someone had mismarked the sizing or the models they use are not average. I now get to return the item, order the 5XL, and wonder whether it will fit. Based on this experience I am not overly optimistic. Kind of pisses me off that I have to pay shipping to send it back and wait another two weeks to to find out if the substitution fits. The product looked really nice and appeared to be a excellent quality vest. Right now I am pretty disapointed with my buying experience and wonder if I will continue to order from this company. I guess the lesson here is I would have been surpass off buying locally.

    … but extremely tiny. I thought of ordering an XL, but due to the material it’s made out of I ordered a 2XL to be on the safe side (having owned vests previously, it made a bit of sense). After pulling it out of the box, it looked fantastic – but, after putting it on, it was very very small for my frame. Compared with other jackets, it is tiny. At 6’3″, this vest barely sits above my waist, and just isn’t long enough. And for a 2XL, it is unusually tight nearly my chest, mainly when compared to my other vests.

    The product is thick and seems very lasting, and can probably take a excellent beating from the environment. Unfortunately we will never find out because the vest doesn’t fit. I would be curious to see how the 3XL fits, but like most clothing, it would probably only get wider and not any longer.

    I recommend this for people nearly 6′ or below. Anyone else who is taller should just avoid this cut.

    I have owned one of these vests previous to from LeatherUp, so I knew what I was getting into. It’s your ordinary Levi or Wrangler weight denim with quality snaps and a fantastic light liner. It’s pretty fade resistant for result in black, though, I would avoid washing it if doable. The size runs accurate. If you wear an XL jacket then it’s safe to buy an XL vest. I bought this from LeatherUp through Amazon and received this a week early! Though this isn’t the same weight as the Biltwell or Eat Dust vests, their quality is just on a different level. This vest is exceptional for what it is at this price point.
