omg i love mackage. i know its pricey but its so worth it. the quality is very good, you get what you pay for! the sizing, i find tends to run big, im a size 0, and i fit into an xxs perfectly in leather. what kind of coat were you thinking about getting?
Their leather jackets run big.. I'm usually an S but fit into an XS. Also, if you're planning on getting a leather jacket and you're not very tall, you might not want to risk sizing up since the sleeve lengthens with size. GL
i had been agonizing since last October about Mackage sizing. I find that they fit on the small side. I actually ended up not buying a winter coat from Mackage this year because their sizing was getting my underpants in a twist - The arms were cut way too tight! I went with a wool coat from their sister company Soia Kyo (which is a lot more consistent size wise IMHO). This spring though, I bought the leather Kenya Jacket from Mackage and couldn't decide between a small and a an XS. Finally decided on the S because the XS was just too tight, even thought it fit, it wasn't as comfortable as a $600 jacket should be. The sleeves on the leather jackets fit way more proportionately than the wool coats! I recommend that you DO NOT blindly order a Mackage jacket online. Try one on first!
I was going to go wit ha wool pea coat and its called Raffy which is a style from fall 09. I am about 5.6" and 36-27-35 are my measurements. I can't really find the style I need on small but they have XS and medium. I'm leaning towards the medium. I've never tried Mackage on so this will be my 1st time and unfortunately I will have to order online so I can't try before buying. I appreciate everyone's input.
I have 2 Mackage leather coats, one wool, and one nylon coat. I wear size Small in all of them. IMO they do run true to size, they are cut on the slimmer size around the waist area, so if you are curvier/bustier I would size up one (I'm short and not curvy!).
