AWESOME jacket but, large is a bit small

Reviewed by DDartman from Ohio on Tuesday, March 8, 2016
I'm 5'11", 215 lbs, and a little bit of a belly. In a suit jacket I wear a 44R so I figured a large might fit pretty good since it was listed as 42-45...and it kind of does, just not well. It fits and with the way it is cut, you still have freedom to move. I even put a 4" barreled 38 special in the conceal pocket, and it hides it well. My biggest complaint was when I put a cell phone in my shirt pocket under the jacket, it became tight in the chest. I returned the L (42-45) and went for the XL (46-48). The XL fits much better for me, allows a little extra room to move around, and I could even wear a sweatshirt underneath.

As for the material, in the pictures it looks to be a smoother texture but, in reality it is more of a broad canvas (similar to say Carhartt work wear). Even so, it is a classy looking jacket and should last a VERY long time! And, in case you didn't catch it in the description...it is DRY CLEAN only. My only complaint in how it is built is the zipper on the left side, like another reviewer pointed out. It's not a huge deal...and by the way, the zipper is metal, not cheaper plastic! Full retail might be a bit much to pay but, at the prices here, I think this jacket is a great deal!
