Escabroso Suede Western Jacket
Escabroso Suede Western Jacket
Now this is a jacket. Dare we call it “gutsy”? Ruggedly handsome and luxurious to the touch. Sophisticated style while simultaneously comfortable, functional, and classic. Quality leather and superb craftmanship. Understated and undeniably masculine. GQ magazine once said “everyone looks better in a suede jacket.” We think you will look your best in this one. With an olive stripe poly lining and six pockets. Three exterior pockets (chest pocket zips). Three interior pockets (one pocket zips). Professionally leather clean. Imported.
The Escabroso Suede Western Jacket is one of my favorite items from TA… It fits like a finely tailored sport coat… Very nice jacket to add to my other Territory Ahead items in my closet. 90% of my closet is from TA! I’ve been purchasing clothing from TA since 1998. Just like this jacket feels like it was tailored to fit me, so do all the other products I have from TA. Order your size and you’ll be very happy you did!!! I Love it!!!
I think I've finally found my jacket
Been searching on and off for a few years looking for a suede jacket that I really liked. One thing or another stopped me from buying, whether it was quality, color, the style...whatever. But when I saw this navy color suede jacket, I had to try it, and when I did it fit just fine. This will be my main jacket during the spring/fall and even some winter seasons as it's suitable for a range of temperatures. I've heard a couple of reviewers stating the zipper used to be in the left side. I'm glad they switched it to the right side - as it should be.
Awesome Jacket!!!! (but lame customer service)
First, the good: I'm really impressed with this jacket!!! Now, the bad: I'm not at all impressed with the customer service. This jacket arrived just as pictured. I generally wear a size 38 blazer/sport coat, so I ordered a medium jacket. When I first tried it on, I thought it might be too big, but it actually fits great. The shoulder/sleeve seams fall at the edge of my shoulders, indicating to me this is a good fit. My normal sleeve length is 32/33 and the sleeve length on the jacket is perfect. The body of the jacket fits 'normal', meaning, not snug and not baggy. I could wear a sweater under the jacket without a problem. I love that this jacket is heavy!!! I don't mean insulated (it's not insulated--only a taffeta-like lining), I mean just heavy leather (I had to find a firm hanger to support this in my closet). The jacket feels solid and 'substantial'. This is not a light weight summer jacket. The zipper is also sturdy. My aggravation with TA customer service was that the morning after I ordered the jacket, I received an email with a free shipping offer. This has probably happened to all at some point. When this has happened to me in the past, I've called the company and without fail, they have adjusted OFF the shipping charge (Carbon to Cobalt, Orvis, Land's End, LL Bean, etc.) I requested this courtesy from Territory Ahead - the rep was pleasant and informed me that she had to speak with her manager. The customer service manager refused the request stating that I had already received a sale price on the jacket. This was true but didn't seem to be a logical reason - if I had ordered the jacket that morning, I still would have gotten the sale price AND the free shipping. As much as I LOVE the jacket, I'm not sure I'll be shopping with Territory Ahead again. Not a great way to keep customers happy. So...a GREAT jacket but be forewarned and prepared if you have any issues that require help from TA.
Good leather. Regular fit as described I like it
Heavy leather. Very Warm. Nice cut. I wear it all the time. Lots of positive response.
