Where to buy size XS alpinestar jacket???

Im a smaller guy.
5'8, 130lbs, 34 in chest, 30 in waist.

According to Alpinestar's size chart, i am an XS,

However, After looking online at all the jackets, I noticed that no one even offers a size XS in alpinestar jackets!

I tried Revzilla, motorcycle superstore, and sportbiketrackgear.com...

Can someone point me in the right direction??

Stop sizing a jacket by a chart. Go to cycle gear or somehting put a couple on and see what fits you best.

5'8 seems to be big for someone who wants an XS

sleeves shouldnt be a problem for your height

5'7 , 130lbs here.

XS scorpion (burnout) is the best fit I've tried so far. A LITTLE big for "proper" fit, but not bad at all. Probably fits better than most street riders I see, but it's not tight.

XS Joe Rocket (can't remember name, leather arms, mesh torsoe) is too big AND long in the arms. Still wearable, but armor may not stay in place once sliding, and a little uncomfy when wearing a backpack.

I'd love a perfed leather jacket, just gotta find a size small enough first. Till then, looking at some armor to wear under the jacket, should fill it out to keep it in place a little better.

I never found any XS in stock, either order online and hope, or get with a shop that's cool about ordering in things for you to try.
