Not quite sure about this jacket (2019-09-20)
I'm a 44 chest and when buttoned up, a little tight. The sleeves are an inch too long, but I can have that tailored. The buttons are a little difficult to put through the holes. The colour is as described, but perhaps a camel or even olive green colour would be perfect. The lapels are not quite in fashion at the moment. I don't think this would work well with jeans, but perhaps blue, black or brown chinos. I would suggest you use it as a casual jacket and not wear it to the board meeting or wedding you had in mind. As what everybody else is said is true but just me, I am not 100% happy. Still, a good jacket.

Fits very well to size with the exception that the sleeves are very long - I imagine anyone would need to have the sleeves shortened by at least 1" - otherwise a nicely made and distinctive item, expecially for the price.

Great period jacket (2015-08-20)
Great quality, price, and design. I will need to take it to a tailor to have the sleeves shortened and a few other alterations, I'm a 44 chest, 6 ft tall, and about 210. The leather "football buttons" are the real deal, even having the leather loop in the back rather than a bent staple of so many lesser quality leather buttons today.
If you're interested in making it a suit, the light weight Indiana Jones pants are a perfect match to the fabric and complement the styling. With the addition of some belt loops and a matching belt, this would make a great Norfolk Jacket!
