Question SHIFT Super Street leather jacket

I'm hoping you guys could also help me with a jacket I'm looking at.... I'm looking to get a SHIFT Super Street leather jacket... anybody have any experience with this particular jacket or just SHIFT in general? quality... fit... I'm ~ 170lbs. 6' tall... My jeans are typically around 33-34"...

I know that leather jackets should be somewhat snug and not too tall... so I'm thinking of getting a M size jacket... however I'm kinda torn between a size L and M. Not sure which size to get... I looked up the sizing chart on and I kinda fall in between... I was wondering if they typically run smaller/larger in size... if so... where? around the chest? waist? any help/advise y'all can provide will be greatly appreciated!

i suggest you find a shift dealer locally (and i don't know of one in houston) and try it on to find the proper fitment.

Well, here's my 2 cents, I am about 147, 5'10" and I wear a medium snug, but that's in a Joe Rocket.

my shift 1-piece fits like an I believe it's a pretty close to it's "standard size".

I know that cycle gear, and , probably most other shops around here, can order them. Anyone who carries fox is setup to order Shift, as they are owned by Fox. The good thing about CG is that you can order from them and if it doesn't fit, just order another to get the right size...they are like the walmart of motorcycles...but I don't take advantage...
