I just received it and can already tell this will be in regular use, for quite a while.
I am 5'10, 135 Lbs. and normally wear Mens medium or small (if I want something to be more form fitting), so I bought a L (US Medium).
It fits perfect. The arms are just right in length, a bit snug, but I think it's supposed to be form fitting.
I read that the hoods on some of the Doublju designs can be a bit pointy...and yes, it is a little pointy, but I like it and it is big enough.
Here are my first impressions:
Well made with good materials.
Warm, polar fleece feel inside, smooth, tight weave outside.
It arrived at my door fast! All the way from Korea in 2 and a half days via FedEx. The shipping was high though...$19.57
The zippers are a little rough/jagged and don't slide very easy...They're ok, but we'll see if overtime they start to stick
The zipper over the heart on the breast is only for show, no pocket...It zips up and down, but it's just sewed shut.
Yes, I agree with the other review saying it sheds...I haven't worn it around yet, but I'm sure it will shed inside. Outside is a fine tight weave, so it will be fine/no pilling.
Overall, I like this item and will buy from Doublju again.
Make sure if you order at least one size up from your US size.

Wow! I am so grateful to have discovered this brand! I've searched for clothing on Amazon many times before and this brand never came up. Somehow, one day I was searching for jackets and noticed a very nice one by Doublju (pronounced as the letter "W"). All of a sudden I was searching through a ton of jackets and shirts by Doublju. It's as if I tapped into a treasure box! Most of their products are my style, the products are made to be slim-fitting, and their prices are very reasonable.
Anyway, onto the jacket...
I read through many reviews and anyone that noted the sizing said "size up." However, I absolutely hate any extra baggage on my clothes. And I would rather have something be tight/form-fitting than have it be too big. Besides, I can always exchange it if it doesn't fit right. So I went ahead and ordered this jacket in a M (US Small). I'm 5'8" and 135 lbs, and it fits perfectly. But I prefer my clothes to really "fit." So, if you prefer a looser fit, then yes, do size up.
I would like to point out, though, that the cuffs on this jacket (or at least mine, in particular) are quite small. And they are not adjustable, nor do they stretch. My hands just barely fit through them while putting on/taking off the jacket. This is one other thing to consider, in regards to which size will fit you, whether you have small or large hands/fists. For this reason (the fact that my hands have to squeeze through the cuffs), it makes for taking a minute or two to put on and take off the jacket. Regardless, I am still pleased with the sizing.
I had my choices narrowed down to this jacket and one other jacket by Doublju, in black. I'm happy I chose this one. It has awesome and unique styling, something I've never seen before. But it is not too weird or different, where it would take some nerve to wear out in public. I like that the pockets on either side are zippered. I had wanted to order this jacket in black, but the zippers do not contrast against the fabric in that option. So, I ordered it in white. I think the white actually makes it more stylish, and, while not something I would wear to a wedding or a funeral, this jacket can pass for semi-formal occasions.
The laundering instructions say "Hand-wash, Cold water. Lay flat to Dry." My front-loading washer has a "hand-wash" cycle on it, so I just used that. And there was a slight amount of dark-colored fibers on the fabric---so I went ahead and tumble-dried it, on the "delicate" cycle (using ultra-low heat), for about 15 minutes. Then I put on a hanger and let it air-dry the rest of the day. Laundering the jacket as I did didn't damage, mis-shape, or shrink the fabric in any way. However, if for some reason you will be laundering it once a week (or more often than a few times a year), then I suggest following the label instructions---so as to keep the fabric in tip-top shape.
Like I said, I am very happy with my purchase. And I foresee myself ordering from this brand many times in the future.

Its actually pretty thick, the zipper also hangs. I kinda wished I ordered another size bigger since XL was a little tight. I cant wear long sleeves with this thing.
(I usually wear size M for US clothing, I got this one at size XL and it was still pretty tight). If you want the zipper to move easily, get a chap stick and run it on the zipper teeth. Then run the zipper up to distribute the wax.

Just got my jacket, shipping was really fast so that's a plus. But, I even ordered a size larger than I normally wear and this jacket is too small! Order two sizes up. Still.. I love the style.. maybe I can stretch this out.

An amazing hoodie ..... Since I saw it I knew it was meant for me .
I'm 5'7" 140lbs kinda ripped body cause I hit the gym every day, first I was a little confused about the size just as most people even though I read the size chart, cause most customer reviews say different stuff ...
I usually wear mens Small (U.S.) because I like to wear my clothes a little tight, I sent doublju a message asking which size I should get but they took a whole day to answer, and I'm the kind of guy who wants things now, so I ordered the Large (US Medium) and it fits great it ain't too tight, it ain't too loose I feel it fits perfect, even though the size chart said I should bought a Medium(US Small) lucky me that I ordered a bigger size ..... Quality is good , zippers are a little rough but they are just fine, shipping was very fast(got it in only 2 1/2 days) shipped from south Korea to San Diego, CA .
I wished I discovered Doulbju before !!!
Great hoodie and I will definitely buy from them again, I have some other Doublju itmes in mind.
If you are going to get this hoodie, I would recommend you to do the same thing I did (order a 2 times larger size than your US size).
I hope my review helped you, and don't wait more time ..... order now !!! ;)

6'3 192 lbs. Unlike any other line Doublju strives to bring you clothing that will help you stand out. This is most definitely one of the m. The zipper sits to the right but does not look odd when worn. The materiel is thick and durable while also being comfortable. One disclaimer these clothes from south korea are built for a slender and shorter person go at least one size larger then you usually wear and you wont have an issue unless you are very wide chested. I have long arms and that is the garment is just above the threshold of being to short in that aspect. Other then that it is awesome and have received many glances from the lady folk ;)

I bought this hoodie recently and was very dissapointed. I washed it when I got it and two of the three buttons that connect the lapel to the hood fell right out and aren't able to be reattached because of the nature in which they tore out. It has pockets on both of the sides but if you like to keep your hands in your jacket when it's cold out this is not the coat to use because the pockets are opened via zipper and they aren't big enough to really get your hands in so you're constantly touching the cold metal of the zipper. Also besides the cold, it's just plain uncomfortable to have your hands scratching against this zipper every time you move. The front "pocket" Isn't a pocket, it's just a stupid zipper for who knows what, I guess looking cool? The hood is also very small and doesn't cover your head or even the sides of your head very well. I'm 6'1'' and 170 pounds, I bought an XL when normally I wear medium or small shirts. It was very snug and the sleeves are really hard to slide up, I don't even have muscly arms. Altogether this was a terrible buy.

Just bought this jacket. Although the shipping was a little expensive, I received it in only 3 days from South Korea to Louisiana! You can wear it 3 different ways and it keeps you very warm. I wish I had found this website earlier! i'm 5'10 and got a Korean large (US Medium). Although it's a little loose around my waist, I couldn't ask for more.

I got mine last week. Am 6,0", 145pounds. I ordered the asian size XXL(American XL). I normally wear American size L jackets, but after reading the reviews about people complaining that the size fits small, I thought I would go for American size XL. Anyway, the fabric is very soft and comfortable. Its a jacket for an everyday kinda use. My first day of wearing it, I got cotton lint all over my shirt and waist was a little big (Just a bit, not too much). So I went ahead and washed it. After washing it, it fits perfectly and lint free like I want it. This jacket is great. Will recommend it for any man. Nice design

The key thing to remember: THIS IS MADE FOR SKINNY ASIAN people.
I normally fit into an American-Medium size. So based on the seller's description, the Asian-Large "would have" fit me just fine.
I said "would have" because although waist fits me just fine, the chest and arms at too skinny.
Now when I got the Asian-XL, the chest fits me fine now (although a little baggy on the waist now), BUT THE ARMS ARE STILL TOO SKINNY.
So, if you're an American guy with any sort of muscle tone in your biceps, good luck trying to fit in these sleeves.
And if you DO fit in those sleeves, I guess this jacket would be a good way to show off your guns in the cold seasons, 'cause they will be bulging out like crazy. LOL.
