This is not oilskin so it is not waterproof or windproof. I should have read the description better. Oilskin is not machine washable. That should habe clued me in. It is called the Vincent hinting of the Vincent Black Shadow motorcycle? Bottom line- This is not a motorcycle jacket, just a lightweight cotton jacket. Too tight in the back and shoulders if you wear a sweater under it.

This coat is terrific. I find it fits true to size and actually wish I'd gotten a medium rather than a large - I'm 5'10, 162, and it's a bit big unless i have a think sweater underneath. It's great looking (minus the belt - it's no trench!) and has become my favorite knockaround coat.

This jacket looks and feels great. The vintage-look fabric looks better in person than in the product photo. It's lightly insulated and warmer than expected: a perfect fall/spring jacket. One thing to be aware of is the slim fit. This nicely over a shirt, but over a sweater it's almost too snug. I'm on the trim side of a men's large, so if you're at the upper end of a size range, order the next size up. Sleeves are plenty long, and armpits are not binding. Only other drawback is the buckle at neck jingles like a sleigh bell, but that can be fixed. All in all, a great purchase: Belstaff style at a fraction of the cost.
