i bought it and it's nice put i just couldn't justify the price so i'll be returning it. it's made out of a relatively thick corduroy, half-lined in the body, fully-lined in the sleeves. it is definitely cut short. three button (if you don't count the little flap that gets buttoned in the middle). there's a surprisingly low gorge unless you button the top button. 5 outside pockets one buttoned interior pocket. it runs fairly true to size. i'm 5' 10", 185lb and the M fit great even with two layers (t-shirt and polo is what i tried) underneath.
my reference jacket was a classic brown cord blazer that i tried at a PRL outlet but didn't buy because it was one size too small. i'd rather have that blazer in the correct size then the EG cord jacket.
let me know if you've got any other questions.
