less than a week from UAE!! (2020-09-29)
As described, the jacket comes untailored, it fits me well as I am fortunate enough to be shaped 'average'. This is a well made item. It is a lot of money, but it isn't expensive. It is a good value for the quality.

A great repro, but expect to spend more money to finish. (2018-08-19)
This is a superb jacket, very close to the originals I have owned.
A couple of issues though - firstly it is not, as state supplied with the braid needed for "any rank". It only comes with chevron braid, however ranks from Major and above always had a thin khaki piping braid between the lines of chevron braid, this is not supplied so you will have to source elsewhere if you want anything higher than captain.
There is a great deal of tailoring required to fit the cuff ranks which come in kit form, the entire lower sleeve must be dismantled and rebuilt... don't buy unless you are competent at tailoring or willing to pay a military tailor to fit them.
The sizing is waaaaaay out. I have a 44 inch chest but (after talking to WPG staff) I ordered a size 40 which fits me perfectly around the chest... but will need tailoring at the wast as it also has a 44 inch waist!
If you are willing to put the work in this makes a great jacket, just don't expect it to work off the peg.
