Bought today the Harris Tweed G4 slimfit in sale for 200GBP in sizse 40. There are still two left for the volunteers :)
I hope I will like the jacket.....
Just ordered a slim G9 in 36 (natural colour) from oipolloi.com. They have a free shipping promotion right now (code SHIPSHAPE) and with the 20% VAT discount for international buyers (which might come back to bite in the arse depending on the customs), it amounted to £112, ie around $178. Not too bad a price I think, especially considering the fact that if the picture is correct, it is a 'made in England' Baracuta. I cannot wait to get it and I will update on quality and sizing.
By the way, if you guys are looking for a trimmer version of the jacket, ASOS' Harrington jacket , is a good rendering and a steal at $40 and free shipping. I really like it except for the fact that it's missing one of the great charms of the Baracuta: the Tartan lining... You might also find it a bit snug around the shoulders, bout otherwise a definite choice for those on a budget.
I was wondering if anyone would know the difference between a slim 38 and an original 36? Would the only difference be the sleeve length and jacket length? Are the chest and waist comparable? I currently have an original 38, but I think I should size down since the waist is too big and the length is a tad too long.
