Well, the jacket finally arrived! No thanks to UPS. The jacket is in fine condition, no damages, but the box & hanger that it came with looked like they played tackle football with them and then drop kicked it into the back of the truck.
The jacket is a near perfect fit for me. The sleeves need about 1" taken off (good thing I have orangutan arms), & I might have it tapered about 2" at the bottom. Other than that, it's a keeper. The fabric is a light weight cavalry twill. I would akin it to maybe the Wested Indy trousers, but in grey of course. This is a good everyday jacket for a day out or an evening out. There is enough space to put a sweater under it for a warming layer, but I would call this one a Spring, Fall, maybe Summer jacket. A cool day or evening jacket. If anything you could always add a topcoat for a cold day as a layer.
Again, for me it's a keeper. The arm holes are high enough for me that the jacket doesn't fly about. The alterations I mentioned can happen at a later date as they are not critical. For me, this is a nice off the rack jacket worth the reduced price I paid, I wouldn't have gone for this at it's original price.
I will post pics maybe tomorrow, a little busy this afternoon for pics, but I wanted to get my thoughts of this jacket down.
"I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it call itself my home, my fatherland, or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defence the only arms I allow myself to use - silence, exile, and cunning." - James Joyce
