Because I read so many conflicting reviews of this jacket (sizing, leather weight/thickness, lining, etc.), I bought both a medium and a large. I'm sure glad I did. It turns out the medium jacket was made in China, while the large was made in Pakistan. The medium fits my arms' length, shoulders and chest, but is baggy around my lower torso. It is also close to too short. It has more insulation and a more attractive, better sewn lining, and the leather is thicker/heavier - nicer for our windy/cold winters. The large size jacket is a much better torso length, but is very baggy all around. There doesn't seem to be any insulation, just a shoddier lining. And the leather is thinner/lighter than the Chinese/size-medium version. Overall, I prefer the size medium/Chinese-manufactured jacket . . . I just wish it were longer. I especially prefer the much better quality leather. It is tough to order one of these jackets and get one that fits right the first time. I hope this review helps you. P.S. I am 6'1", weigh 180 lbs., and usually wear a size 44 suit jacket. Good luck.
This jacket is very warm and comfortable. I was a little disappointed when I saw the tag read American Hide Leather and then later found another tag that read Made in China. But all in all it's a great jacket.
A great value. It's made in China but the quality is superb. The cut is stylish and elegant. The fabric blend is just right. Mostly wool with a little cashmere for softness and smoothness. A bit of polyester makes the fabric supple, flexible and resistant to "pilling". The lining is a subtle, well crafted paisley jacquard. The color is a little darker than the picture but that's a plus. It's a rich, deep, luxurious brown that looks very expensive. The tailoring is as fine as i have seen and the lapels lie flat and elegantly. Looks and feels extremely durable. I don't understand how a customer claimed that it was too thin. It's a very thick, substantial fabric. It it were any thicker it would feel to bulky and heavy. The padding is just right as well and the length is generous and protective. My wife knows a lot about clothes and design and she was impressed. I had been looking for a coat just like this one for quite a while but they were always too expensive. This one is just perfect at an unbelievable price. It truly looks and feels as if cost many hundreds of dollars more. I plan to enjoy it for many, may years. I recommend this item very highly.
This is a really nice jacket. It is heavy weight wise, but haven't experienced it on a cold windy Boston day. I'm 6'3 and wear a 48 long Van Huesen suit jacket. So I ordered this in a 48 long as well, and it's big on me. I look like a kid wearing his dad's jacket. If you need a jacket such as this and you're on a budget, this might work for you. However, the black version ran big. It is made in China, not Italy. But don't let that discourage you too much.
