I purchased this as a gift and now it is his favorite casual jacket. It's great for casual meeting with board members or staff meetings
Relaxed and cool
Living in Texas I needed a year round jacket that I could wear during the hot Texas summers. This jacket fit the bill. At first it seemed a little tight but after a few hours the jacket seemed to shape itself to me. It stands up to the wash quite well and with a little ironing looks quite sharp. The material is soft and supple and after wearing develops a nice drape. My big complaint is the color of the fabric and the buttons. The pics show it to be tan but it is green. The cheap looking buttons are green. I replaced the buttons (they were falling off anyway) with a richer brown button. I am pleased with the jacket other than those few problems.
Nice. I Wish It Would Have Fit
Great casual sport coat. Loved the fabric and the look. I have been looking for something like this one for years. However, I needed a little more room and width in the shoulders for the Two-Step to be a keeper (48L). Had to send this one back. Other than the shoulder fit, the only minor negative is the color. The indicated burlap appeared to be somewhat more of a greenish hue than what I would have considered to be a burlap. I would've kept it, though, had it fit me. I wish it came in an XXLT or a 50L.

Arm length for a ""little person""
This jacket was exactly what my husband wanted for traveling and casual meetings. He ususally takes a 42L, but 44L was all that was available. I said for the price, we would have it altered. That is not even remotely possible, since the arm length came just below his elbows!!! Cannot believe the poor manufacturing of this item. The length wouldn't even be long enough for a little person/dwarf. I am sending it back in hopes there is another one constructed to the right measurements.
