Sizing is easy, these are tight t-shirt sizes. 

Men, (Loosely) measure your chest and stomach, take the bigger of the two measurements, then go up one size. So, for example if the measurement is 50 inches, order a 52 and you are set.

Women, (Looselymeasure your chest and stomach, take the bigger of the two measurements, then go up one size. So, for example if the measurement is 50 inches, order a 52 and you are set. If large busted go up 2 sizes. Don't worry about the size, its a reflection on the markets sizing, not yours.

Leather quality:

Naked Cowhide Leather

Thickness / Weight: 1.6-1.8 mm Full-Naked cow is a premium soft leather that looks and feels natural to the touch. They are made from full grain leather hides and are not grain corrected. Therefore, they need to be hand selected for uniformity and only the highest quality hides can be used to make naked leather products. However, since there is no grain correction, they still have their natural markings. They are not defect free, but they do have fewer imperfections. Full-naked leather has been dyed, but no other treatments or finishes are applied. Other leathers are corrected by sanding etc to remove the imperfections.

Thickness or Weight - Leather is usually measured in terms of ounces. One ounce equals 1/64th of an inch thickness. Thus, a weight of 7 to 8 oz. means the leather is 7/64th to 8/64th of an inch thickness. In an effort to make leather a uniform thickness, wet hides are run through a splitting machine. However, each animal is different and there is always a slight thickness variation throughout the hide. This is why leathers are usually shown with a range of thickness, such as, 4 to 5 oz., 6 to 7 oz., etc.

Split Skin Cowhide Leather
Split skin cowhide is found below the top layer. It is less durable than other leathers, but it is very affordable. Some products are made using split skin cowhide in order to bring the cost down. This allows popular styles to be more affordable. Split skin is not considered a quality leather, but it is still in demand due to the very low pricing. Sometimes split skin is actually preferred; like during the summer when the split skin chaps will not be as heavy and hot as the naked cowhide chaps. Split leather is created from the fibrous part of the hide once the top grain has been separated from the hide. Split has an artificial layer added to the surface and is embossed with a leather grain. It is a much tougher feeling leather than that of a naked skin. Split skin products are clearly marked “split skin”, and their product numbers always end in the letters, "SS". For Helmets follow the chart, measure all the way around just over the eyebrows and at the top of the ear. There is a chart in the pictures area of each item.
