Two things you need to know about this jacket:
1) It's not boiled wool, as the description states. Instead, it is a lightweight, unlined, slightly-stretchy, wool bouclé knit. This means that the buttonholes are going to stretch - which will make the jacket unbuttonable eventually. However, though lightweight, the jacket is still rather warm.
2) The fit is much boxier than the photo indicates. On me, it fits like a swing jacket - quite roomy.
I'm going to keep this jacket anyway, because the boiled wool would have been awfully hot; the lightweight wool is more versatile. I love the asymmetrical neckline, and I think this jacket will be perfect for travel. I just don't expect this jacket to withstand everyday use.
