Girls wit Joe Rocket Trixie, fit review pls??
Hi girls, I am considering the Trixie pants and jacket by Joe Rocket. According to their size chart a Smalll in the pants will fit me perfectly. I know alot of you have this jacket, or set.
Where I run into a little concern is in the jacket. I have broad shoulders, long arms, somewhat larger chest. Small waist.
My current leather a Teknic, I love it but its too small really, in the chest and in the back...Its a Med. I'm 5'6, b36-37, w27, h36-37. I also have a mesh in a men's small cause I could not find one with long enough arms )
I am thinking I could get the Large in the Trixie jacket, and have it taken in in the waist if its too bulky there. Cause I do want to fit a hoody under it when I need it....According to their size chart I am between a M-L in chest, M in waist and S-M in hips.
I'd try one on but could not find it currently/local and I have one more day to pick up the set for a song...if I get my sizing figured. But I want it to actually fit and not look/feel like a linebacker
Anyone similar size/exp or have it taken in? I did talk to two girls who had it taken in in arm length, and one in waist...I have loooong arms so that doesn't concern me much.
also, I have a light blue bike, but that could change. I am thinking of the white/blk/gunmetal combo, do you think that would look better than the blue leather?
Ok well I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet. BTW if any of you are interested in the full set, pm me for a contact 1/3 of retail price. Dif sizes and colors avail.
The white/blk/gunmetal combo will go with any color bike you have or may have in the future so it is better than buying a blue because who knows what your next bike will look like?
Sizing... well, always remember that you can always have some taken in but if it's too small, you're hooped.
It is a sweet looking suit.
Just passing time...
I have a few Joe Rocket jackets. Just recently I purchased the jet set jacket (leather).
I have the same problem you do, broad shoulders, long arms.. I am 5'9, and have a couple of inches on you in the measurements. I always get a large in the joe rocket. I can also fit the medium, but the arms are too short. Think there is a half inch difference.
I find that joe rocket sizing in all their jackets is pretty much the same. Of the 3 joe rockets I have, they are different styles, but all the same size. I do find that Joe Rocket fits my body type the best. Unfortunatly I have never tried the Trixie.
I think you should get the medium.
Think I saw a few trixie jackets at Carter in Coquitlam. Good Luck.
Thanks, that was great advice. I am actually here in Kelowna

Also its a bit short-waisted but should be able to fix that when I have it altered...the hips start higher than they should on the jacket ( like before my waist ends!).
Pants are great, but no way are they a 34" inseam as advertised. I am 5'6 and if they were any shorter they would be too short.
The two zip together nice, so thanks y'all for helping!
