This leather is supple yet thick, cozy enough for fall and winter season and the cotton lining definitely helps. The arms feel padded at first but it must be the extra thickness the cotton adds. Between the lining and the underside of the leather is suede.
Pictures online do not showoff the jacket well when it was available last. I really love the big sleeves that create this nice curved shape from the side profile. The snap buttons mixed with sewed buttons is nice detail. (Zipped front with snap button hideaway placket.) The collar is sort of bulky due to buttons located underneath for when you fold up the collar with a throat latch. And it looks pretty damn good with the collar folded up half way at the back with the points pealed back ever so slightly.
I did not expect it to be as nice and now sort of torn about keeping it. When is a leather jacket considered too long??? It's almost half way down my ass when worn but it lends itself to the fuller fit than your typical leather jacket. My dad could wear this pretty well. It was advertised as black but it is definitely dark brown. The back has a nice pleat detail as well.The shoulders hang on me well enough due to my slope shoulders. Overall it appears to fit large but as intended by Lemaire's silhouette. Sure I could size down but I don't need to. This would probably fit @LA Guy well across the upper body since I believe he is a larger 48. I actually kept thinking about LA Guy the whole time examining this leather. But I think I may be the oddball out since majority of members prefer a more fitted leather piece I believe.
Some promo pics and then my own in a dark lit room:
