It would cost approximately $200. Sorry it took forever for me to respond. I'm looking for another waist length jacket. It'll probably be a Japanese brand again. The average height for males is 5,6.

Re: Custom Leather Recommendations?

I bought my new jacket from Hillside Leather out of Florida- all made in USA. Lots of pirate costume stuff too but they do make simpler designs too. Fit is good, they offer some customization for fit; longer etc. I wear 52L which is kind of loose but down over the waist a bit. Zipper was stiff at first but rapidly improving after a few weeks of riding.

good to see they make them here. there is dozens of pop up leather suit makers in the last few years but it's all made in pakistan. like heroic which thinks their stuff is worth the same price as dainese etc($1600-$2300). lol its just junk made in a sweatshop for $300. they kicked me off their facebook page for calling them out on it
