Here's the funny part - the jacket arrived ahead of schedule and showed up the day my mother-in-law came to visit for 2 weeks, so I definitely have to wait until I'm not out-numbered. She'll be fine with it, especially when I tell her I got it on eBay for $350... Oh boy. I literally had trouble getting it on the first time - but it's warm here in NJ now and I wore it until I was breaking a sweat, doing all sorts of stretches and then crumpling & rolling it. I'm pleasantly surprised how much more flexible it is after 1 hour of wear, so it's not as intimidating as I thought it would be. I actually find the cotton drill adding stiffness to the sleeves that probably would be less with sateen - I'm still on the fence about that choice. But, I will absolutely get sateen and light wool in the Vicenza I hope to order next year (I got medium weight wool on this jacket, which is great).
