this is a nice wool jacket, I bought for my husband for Christmas. I wanted him to have something dressy. I read another review that said her husband was of medium build. My husband is 5ft 10inches 170lbs and he fit perfect in a medium. He would not be able to layer up underneath at this size but that is not what I wanted the coat for. It is nicely sewn with a full poly lining. It has external and internal pockets that are closed to prevent bulk unless you want them open.
This is a well made and fitting suit at a price that is hard to beat. It runs true to size and for most men it will need only minimal alterations. The poly-rayon blend has a rich feel. The lapels are a bit narrower than on many classic double breasted suits. However they are not so narrow as to be quickly out of style or to prevent a purchaser from buying this brand again. Had the lapels been the normal classic width the suit would have received 5 stars.
First off, the jacket felt very nice. It was clearly made of high-quality materials, and the sherpa lining was VERY soft and warm. The insides of the arms of the jacket are lined with a synthetic material, and felt very warm and comfortable as well. The only issue I had with the jacket was the fit. The Size Medium fit perfectly in terms of the length. However, the chest of the jacket was very wide across. I have fairly broad shoulders, and that's usually the area where shirts and coats feel tight on me, but this jacket felt very very loose and baggy around my chest and shoulders. The arms of the jacket were also very wide and baggy, almost like the pant legs of a pair of loose jeans. This made the whole jacket feel like it was even more over-sized. I think this is a very nice piece of clothing in terms of quality and comfort. However, for me, the style just isn't there. It felt awkward to wear, like I was a little kid wearing my dad's jacket or something, but if I had order the next size down then it would be too short and look like I was wearing a crop top. I think for some people, the over-sized style may be desirable, but it certainly wasn't expected.
If you like the military look, this is a well tailored, handsome coat at a very competitive price. Order one size larger than usual. The 60/40 wool/poly blend is warm, and the added black layer on collar and behind the buttons is a plus. The gray version is suitable to dress beyond jean casual. A great buy. Ron P. Colorado
