Anyone here purchased one or seen one in person.
How is the cotton quality?
I ask this because i noticed the following on the jcrew site......
look just where the armpit begins. Notice what looks like a tear....??
I have this jacket, so I can comment on a few things. It's a lightweight jacket that's probably designed to be worn during the warmer months. Very fine cords running vertically down the length of the jacket. Think pincords without the substantial weight of corduroy. Fabric weight is somewhere between madras fabric and chino. Thin, but not too thin. Has a faded look, so I'd only recommend it for casual wear (i.e. refined casual). Hope that helps.
P.S. That does look like a tear.
