So I returned the size 38 blazer from the Gilt sale (I wear a small in shirts/tops/outerwear) as it was way to tight in the waist. Shoulders and chest were on small side, but still do-able and the sleeves were perfect. I'd be curious how the 40 fits, model on site wears smalls and models the 40, probably would have been better, ah well. Keep an eye out for it if you had it on your wait list.

It seems like it would be as warm as you'd anticipate a short wool coat/bomber jacket without any insulate. I'm guessing layered with a sweater/button down/scarf would keep you warm most of the winter until the temperature drops low enough to bring out the big guns.
I was mostly curious about sizing, seems a size up from your shirt size would give a nice fit according to the model on the website.
