Dainese Stripes EVO Pelle jacket

This is new and unworn, which I know not only because of its spectacular gleaming and fresh beauty, but also because the owner came in metaphorically crying big hot tears of consumer sadness. He’d used the online sizing charts, bought it for damn near $700 Canadian dollars, what with the current punishing exchange and all, had it shipped, which was expen$ive, and paid duty on it as well.

And it didn’t fit. Not even a tiny bit of fitting. Not even a grudging zip-up for one slightly constricted ride around town. Sad trombone.

If you are smaller than the original owner, you’re about to get one of those there sweet deals. We figure it for a tightish classic men’s small, about a 38 – 40.

Do drop by and try it on.

#7903. $549 before tax. Canadian bucks. No shipping or duty or exchange.

Dainese has some (fairly non-humourous, if I may critque) stuff to say about it:
