    generally do their jackets run true to size? larger? smaller? figured i'd ask before i take a chance on one on ebay.

    I'd say true to size, mine's snug, as leather jackets should be...

    More on the snug side I would say. There website used to tell you which jackets were "fitted" and which ones provided some relief. I have the TZ-1 and fits well for riding, but you wouldn't be comfortable wearing it out at night.

    Definitely ..

    On the Snug side. I have a 48 inch chest US and I wear a 60 Euro AlpineStars jacket.. A 56 made me look like a fat guy in a little coat, a 58 would probably be too tight because a 60 is perfect on me, its snug like it should be but not to the point that it cuts off circulation. In my experience, Astars leathers run on the smaller side even after taking into account the 10 size conversion between US and Euro and the boots run little long. I'm a size 12 US shoe and the conversion size for a 12, (I think its like 47 or something) has too much room left in the toe area. hope this helps. BTW , with astars , if at all possible, its better to see how it fits before buying it or make sure you can either exchange or return it if it doesn't fit.
