    It would be impossible for me to be more satisfied with this jacket. I am a bit like Goldilocks in that I neither prefer too snug nor too loose of a fit. For me, this one nails it perfectly. A huge thanks to Carrie and the whole team at Thurston Bros as well as those here on TFL who took the time to answer a question or two. Not the best photos; simply a few random one with the boys in the yard this morning (if I can stick around another 40-50 years they can fight over who gets to keep it). The jacket arrived just last night & I may try to post a few more photos later. Note: you may be able to click on the individual photos for a larger view (I think) Cheers, JASON

    Good looking jacket with a good fit. I too don't like my jackets tight, but trimly fitted. My Sheene may be just a bit more trimly fitted than yours, but it is pretty close. Carrie and Wade know what they are doing. Is that the Aero brown or the cordovan?

    Great looking jacket and superb fit! I really love the CXL brown, too! That jacket will only get better looking with wear! The only thing I see that is concerning is the sleeve length. It looks perfect right now, but they may shorten as the jacket creases and ages. My hope for you is that they don't and that you will have that perfect fit, great-looking, timeless jacket for many years to come!

    That's just perfect, Jason King. Time will give it even more character.

    I'm wondering if my first jacket turned out that well, if I would have a closet full of other jackets....that could be a one and done.
