Me: 5'7"/155lbs/Broad Shoulders/32" waist/42" chest. Large fits me perfectly - chest, shoulders/back, sleeve, hem, neck (when fully zipped up). Nice slim euro fit; not boxy like American stuff. I could see the arms being too short for taller folks. Don't expect to be able to wear this against bare s...

This is my new favorite go-to light jacket. The boiled wool fabric is wonderfully light and warm. The fit is perfect, with adjustable cinch chords at the waist.
It has replaced sweaters for me, in that it is more adjustable to the changing climates with the full- length zipper down the front. So I now have a flexible garment that I can wear indoors or outdoors. It also serves as a great warming layer under a wind or moisture shell. I couldn't be more pleased. In fact, I have come back for more.

I liked this product so much, I bought the vest for myself and my wife, and this jacket. It fits well, but it's boxy shape may not appeal to everyone. The sizing is accurate and allows for additional layering. They are excellent for traveling, except for really cold climates, as they cut down on the packing.

I bought this for my husband to wear instead of his ratty fleece. It is very nice. I ordered the large because I read reviews that it runs a little small. The large fit perfectly (he's medium in almost everything). This is our second Ivanhoe purchase and we've been very happy with both items.

This layer is not "windproof" but it does hold back more wind than a typical wool sweater. I like it because it is a single layer and so remains light and flexible like a regular sweater. I am an athletic 6'1" 185lbs and the LARGE fits me well, with a bit too much room at the waist, hitting just at or below the belt line. Most jackets fit far looser at the waist, so this fit is an improvement. There is a shock-cord synch at the waist which makes the sweater look more "technical" than classy, but otherwise this can pass as a casual Friday sweater. It's not as soft as the softer merino but doesn't itch me, and my wife even likes it.
