(MINUS THE) LEATHER TRIM WOOL BLEND MOTO JACKET
This is too much for me - the metal is very yellow and shiny and the zippers are very large and chunky! Sending this back - I honestly think it looks tacky.
I'm also 5'8'' and the jacket definitely has a cropped look on me - not in a bad way, but it would definitely limit the things I could wear it with.
As for fit, I'm usually an xs in tops and a small in outerwear (I like room for layers). However, an xs in this coat would have been more than fine, had I decided to keep it.

Love This Jacket!
I've been needing an in between pea coat and leather jacket style jacket for a while now and this was the answer! Still good for cooler days but not freezing, has all the gold embellishment that is in style this season with black, and the mix of wool to leather is unique! I love it. For reference I got it in a size S and am 5'6 135lbs 34D 34-27-34. I do sometimes wish it were just maybe an inch longer but I don't mind the cropped look.

The jacket is cute, I like it but its a bit bog on me. I am about 105lbs and 32B..I wish Express would make XXS. Would have been perfect then.

Way too short on me
This would be a fantastic jacket if it were longer. I'm 5'9 and this jacket just looked ridiculous on me. I knew from the pictures it was a shorter jacket, but not THAT short. Maybe it'd work better on shorter women or women with short torsos, but even then I'd think it'd still be qualified as a cropped style.

Love at first sight
What a great piece. When I got it in the mail I couldn't believe how expensive and gorgeous it really is. The website photo doesn't do it justice. I'm 5'7 and it hits around the waist, not too short at all, but definitely on the shorter side, which is perfect. A great piece to have. The hardware is really nice too, heavy and rich looking.
