I have really enjoyed the now discontinued Seattle Cruiser which is now simply a Mackinaw Cruiser with the Seattle Fit. There is a difference in the wool though as the Seattle Cruiser uses the Yukon Wool as opposed to the Mackinaw Wool. Still 24oz wool however, but slightly less coarse. I have it in the Camo/Otter Green color and could not be happier.

I grabbed this in a MED a couple weeks ago. I hear it is now discontinued, though not sure why because with the red plaid lining this is a killer jacket, and adds that extra bit of
I'm 5'9" about 155.
Suit 38 slim or regular 36. I'm thinking a S would not allow me to layer in the winter, and this way the MED allows that option. Can still wear it with just my Gitman flannels fine.
Did anyone ever pick up the Navy Cruiser from 2013? It's bonded wool, they also call it boiled wool.
The current small Seattle fit cruisers fit me perfectly. Should I assume that the 2013 small Seattle fit would do the same?
I only ask because I picked up a 36 Filson Forestry Cruiser and it was too small. Probably needed the 38 in the numbered sizes.
Dumb question? Does 2013 Seattle Fit = 2015 Seattle Fit?
So Like you I was going to purchase a Mackinaw Cruiser and was telling my friend about it. He recommended I look up Tradition Creek (also made in the US - veteran owned company.) They make theirs out of melton wool, a higher quality then the filson mill and it's like a hundred bucks less than a filson. Anyway, this is the coat I ended up going with and couldn't be happier, plus they have a 100% lifetime warranty on the coat, so that's always epic.
Hope this helps!
Not 100% wool unfortunately.
