Purchased this vest on eBay and just received yesterday. I did not anticipate needing to size up on account of the very plush alpaca/wool lining, but I have discovered it is too snug for my intended purpose as a mid-layer. To note, this is a clone of a Freewheelers aviator vest and made in China. Construction seems very good with straight stitching and no loose threads. The materials also have a nice feel to them (soft but tough-seeming outer, soft lined pockets). Although seller accepts returns, the cost of return shipping to China is a dealbreaker. My apologies for the color variation between pics. Some of them seem desaturated due the uneven lighting. Actual color is definitely closer to the more saturated photos.

Measurements:
Chest 19.25"
Shoulders 15"
Back length 25.25"
Again, keep in mind the measurements are EXTERNAL. The thick lining makes me want to say this will fit one size smaller than measured above.

Cut/paste from item descrip:
  • Based on the Freewhee1ers Winter Aviator's Vest
  • 100% cotton, 440g/sm heavy jungle Cloth outer shell
  • Paraffin coated fabric, adding a water resistant finish
  • 70% wool 30% alpaca lining, offering warmth and comfort
  • Cross front buttoning with protective throat tab
  • Pleated front pockets with button closure
  • Zip front top pocket
  • Back pocket with a zipper fastening on the side for extra storage
  • A buttoned inside pocket for your valuables
  • Vintage-style Talon zippers
  • Do not wash or dry clean - brush or wipe clean with a damp rag
Asking $250 shipped CONUS.
Thanks for considering!
