This is a nice jacket. Rather than send it to the cleaners for pressing, I carefully used a warm, dry iron to remove the creases incurred in shipping. The fit is perfect. I am 5' 10", 160 with 34 inch sleeves. The sleeve length is perfect. I was surprised and pleased. I got a nice compliment the first time I wore it with a peach colored shirt and a flowered tie.
My husband looks fantastic in this coat - it fits his trim shape beautifully and it goes with his rugged outdoor personality.
Better than I thought
The write-up said this looked like a suede jacket. I bought it. When I arrived, I thought "yeah, I'd mistake this for suede if i was in a dim room." But then I wore it. It feels great! And, really, one of my friends at first thought it was, indeed, suede. The more I wear it, the more I like it. It goes great with jeans and many of my Territory Ahead shirts. Have you ever thought of adding a store on Long Island? You know, roughly one out of every ten Americans lives on Long Island. Just a thought.
My wife bought this for my birthday. The sleeves were a little long but my mother in law was able to shorten the sleeves and even added the third button, which had to be removed to shorten the sleeves. Very satisfied and really like the way this looks with jeans and chino's - all from TTA of course!

I LOVED this coat when I purchased it last season. The leather 'look' was awesome. But after only two dry cleanings, the 'resin' finish of the coast is gone and it is now simply a cloth sport coat. The unique technology seems promising, but it was brought to market without adequate testing in real-world conditions, in my opinion. My dry cleaner refuses to clean the coat again, as he says it will only ruin it further. I am extremely dissatisfied with the product. I am a long-term TTA customer, with the majority of wardrobe coming from TTA. But they should not be selling this coat until the product can withstand multiple cleanings.
This coat is everything it's cracked up to be--just as dazzling as the hype promises. I ordered a 38R and the sizing was just as expected.

Great was my sadness when I went to the Freehold store last weekend and was told that the store is closing. All merchandise on super sale. I was lucky enough to score the coolest jacket ever, the Double Take Sport Coat. It is an amazing jacket, just as advertised. It looks like leather but the material is smooth. It has a classy dark brown look. If you can get your hands on one of these, you'll be elated. You've never seen anything like it. I was also lucky enough to get a suede sport coat called the Welcome Back Jacket. Exactly the suede jacket I always wanted. Very sorry to see the store close but thanks for the great stuff.
