Belstaff has some pretty fine looking moto-inspired quilted coats, as well as some more traditional looking styles. I bought one myself this past week, will post fit pics at some point I guess..

The Barbour is heavier than the RL and mine has a very light fleece interior, so I'd consider it more of a winter jacket. The construction is a bit burlier than the Polos and the coat has some heft compared to most quilts, but the sizing has Barbour's usual vagaries so you might need to size up or down a bit to get it right. Leather trim at the wrists and underneath the collar, back snaps at the waist to give it some shape, extra zip pocket on the front is great for my phone/keys.
The RL is a very nice jacket but tends to run small all around - it is shorter and tighter - and you should automatically size up one. It has more details than the Chelsea (2-way zipper, throat latch, moleskin lined pockets, etc.), but the delta between the body and the shoulder sizing is a bit odd - I am a standard US42/EU44 and I had to take a XL to get the shoulders to fit and then take in about 2" - 2.5" in the body. It is a lighter quilt and is probably more of a Fall/Spring rig; there are also more color options. I prefer the Richmond to the current options as the suede patch and/or the new pockets seem a bit showy to me.
I scored both an FleaBay NWT for about $100 each - retail pricing is a bit silly - and they are go-to pieces for me. Vest gets a ton of action as it can be layered under or over a pretty big range of combos.
Hope this helps...

I'm looking back at the earlier posts in this thread and think that there are actually at least three weights for the Chelsea:

Flyweights
Sportsquilt
Polarquilt

The second of which I have, not the polarquilt as I earlier stated. I think you are referring to the polarquilt one in your post as I don't have the fleece lining on leather trim on the leather collar or sleeves.

So Luxire will do custom quilted jackets... I will probably get an upgraded version of the Boggi made.

What about this one?

I'm addicted to these kind of winter jackets.

I like it and when is not so cold you can take even the vest off.

Btw, this is not my favourit one.

Giving an attentive look, purists would agree with me

Bringing this back as I'm seriously looking to order the Chelsea soon. Would I want the Flyweight or Sportsquilt for Bay Area climate (50 - 60 Farenheit)? Thanks!

The max I would go with the sportquilt is 60 F assuming just a dress/sport shirt underneath.

Go with Sportquilt, it's the perfect weight for that temperature, I usually wear mine with 15 C° outside.

Flyweight is more a early spring weight.

I just wrote a guide a about quilted jackets for men where I outline the history of it, the features of the original Husky jacket as well as a buying guide. I am sure some of you may find it of interest.

So how would you assess the quality of the various jackets?

There is the Enrico Mandelli, some Loro Piana, etc. at the top.

Belstaff, Barbour, Lavenham, Burberry maybe in the middle?

Where does the Italian Husky fit in?

Some are made from higher grade polyester. Mandelli, for example, extracts theirs from SG chambray.

We're similar in some ways. Our wardrobes are equally extensive, for example, except mine is made from 100% jpeg.

What do you guys think of this quilted ISAIA coat? Mainly using it while walking with the dog.
