I need some advise on the sizing of the jacket. Should it be big enough to zip up or is it meant to be worn open? Appreciate any and all opinions!

I think it's meant to be worn open but it's on the heavy side for a leather jacket so I'd make sure you can zip it up when it gets cold. I have a 36 which fits perfectly when open, a little too tight when zipped up but not terrible. I preffer it that way since I wear it open most of the time.

I agree with Guessgirl96 on this too - the ability to zip it up is important if required but I mostly wear it open too. good luck!

I remember seeing Balenciaga at Selfridges in London, at the last level ...a refined lady was having her coffee 2 steps away from the most exclusive fashion brands O_O

does anyone know if it is still possible to find a black leather jacket with black zippers? i saw the new ones with oxidized zippers, can't decide which one looks better.

Best would be to contact the Paris "flagship" store, they have more choice and better prices.

I got one with black zippers from the New York store at the end of December (they had a reorder) but they only had like 1 in each size.... I prefer the black zippers... I saw the new spring ones too b/c they had just come in and the black zipper ones are nicer IMO.
