Very fond of Carhartt products

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rod from Upstate NY on Friday, December 23, 2016
I have been wearing a medium size Carhartt jacket that i inherited from my father - sort of a classic - already had been well worn by my father for several years working outside around his country property - not sure of the style, but a button front and blanket material lining. I love this jacket and still wear it often, but wanted something a bit nicer for everyday work. Because the medium i have is just a little big on me, and these jackets have a reputation to be a bit big and bulky, i bought this in a small. I kept it, but I should have bought a medium. I am 5'8" and 140#, but have very long arms, and this small is tighter than i would like, and sleeves are short, but it fits better in the waist than a medium would, and I am hoping with wear it will stretch out a bit in the shoulders and back to be more comfortable. I had read a previous review on this site where it was mentioned by an owner of one of these that he immediately cut the sleeve cuff elastic out of the arms - thanks to him for that comment - i completely agree, i cut mine out also as soon as I received it and it immediately felt so much better in the arms. I do love the color and fabric and look. It is a classic coat, my only caution for a buyer is to consider what kind of fit you want - if you plan to wear a hoodie under it, or other bulky layers, buy it large enough so you will not feel it tight on you as you move in it to work etc. I do think it is well worth the $$ and a good value - will last for many years of heavy use.
