The color is cement with a greenish tinge--not the most flattering for my coloring. The fabric is incredibly thin. The collar has no body (from the thinness) so it is quite floppy. I could have taken a small instead of a medium--unlike all other clothing. Kind of wish I hadn't bought this.

I returned this item. The product information said raw seams, but I expected some sort of crimping or edging. They are raw, just as the jacket was cut from the fabric. I did not like the quality of the boiled wool. It was light weight and will wrinkle. The style was great. I liked the design but couldn't get past the unfinished look. I toyed with the idea of sewing on a leather trim, but even then the fabric wasn't quality enough to warrant the extra expense and work. A disappointment as I prefer a more finished, tailored look.

The idea is cool: moto style in boiled wool. I also liked the artisanal touches like the raw edges. However, the craftsmanship was spotty. I ordered three, one in each color, and there was something wrong with each (e.g., the collar was cut crooked or some of the stitching was crooked). Also, the XS fit more like a S (I'm 5'2" and 105 lbs.). The shoulders were too wide and the sleeves too long. It's too bad because the design is cute, but I am returning all three.
