    So, here it is. Couldn't keep a straight face as my granddaughter gave me even more grief than my wife while taking these pics.

    Not sure what's up with that "arse"...

    XXL size. Will take numbers in a bit.
    Gotta say, I love this jacket. I know it's not the ooh and ahh affair we're used to here, but it will get lots of use here in SoCal...
    For info sake, I wear a 48 jacket.
    Boots are Red Wing "Muleskinner" model.

    I love how right after your "arse" remark you're smiling in the pic that follows. Lol.

    Good stuff. I can see why you like that jacket, easy to wear, casual, but still has class...

    Really love the look of this one! I'm waiting to see the numbers on this one, as they advise to size up on their website.

    I guess it's a pretty "light" jacket, more like a L2?

    Which is why I emailed over and over about size. I saw some "pilot shops" that carry it with totally conflicting numbers on size, hence my hesitation. Wife just did it and I was not going to. So I am happy. I'd even say that someone MAYBE in a 50 could wear it. I'll get numbers soon.
    The jacket is nice. I dig the zips, but not sure of the brand. Nothing fancy, and I thought I was going to hate the flap pockets - on the contrary, they're a really good design, surprisingly. You can tuck the flap for a "slotted" look or snap them closed if you have a phone, etc. in them. the sleeve "pocket" is small, but perfect for what I use now as a wallet - a small, leather card-holder. I think the regular price (like most things) is inflated, and to be 100% honest, @ $150 it would be the right price. Having it now, I'm happy and would even "consider" another one in red or grey...

    Yeah, like I said, my granddaughter was LOL'ing at me and shaking her head. Seems to be a female thing. ;)

    @ButteMT61 , that's good to know. As if I needed another jacket... The one in red is quite tempting too, if unusual.

    You should be embarrassed ... striking that "Superman Pose" out of costume. Nice casual jacket... everybody needs em, everybody's got one (whether they know it or not). What material is that again?

    You guys are funny...and ironically, I've felt pretty crappy about myself lately and the kind/funny comments are appreciated. I'll get some closeup shots of the material. It's interesting stuff, but like I said, not what I expected...
