FIRST .. leave off on the company bashing .... if you're not here to comment on the jacket, then move on, there's nothing else to see here but MY NEW JACKET !!!!! I've taken comments on board re. fit and went for a slim 44" ( this is a new direction for me) ..... feels very nice, a little strange .. fitted, a little like a suit jacket . I normally wear my jackets a little loose for most on here ..... this is fitted Quality if construction .. INCREDIBLE .. I sent my own lining ( heavy blanket muted Stewart 100% wool soft, warm and completely NON-ITCHY) and asked for cord in the sleeves, brown moleskin pocket linings (throughout), cord bottom 1/4 and full sleeves, no storm cuffs and two inside pockets. Snaps on cuffs not buttons ( which can be a pain IMHO) The vintage steer is soft and thick ... sort of like nubuck meets vintage leather ...... overall ... I REALLY like it. It's not 50's halfbelt fit, more 30's halfbelt fit.
