Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2472
@LA Guy The fabric is durable being vintage military stuff, but elements of the construction maybe less so if you're hard on your clothes. Mine has darts around the right elbow that I've sometimes worried about damaging pulling it on (there's no sleeve lining so it can catch on shirt sleeves). I don't think all of them have this exact sleeve construction though.
Its pretty light weight, but warm enough with a flannel underneath. The fabric they use I think mostly comes from some kind of old wide legged military over-trouser that would have been pulled on over other clothes.
They do occasionally look kinda frumpy on webstore models, but I'm pretty happy with how mine fits. Fitted in the shoulder and chest, looser through the midsection/ at the hem. More subtly cut than the crazy-pockets-everywhere appearance may suggest. I think again the fit varies a bit from jacket to jacket.

I just returned those, actually. You can view the comments on my post on them, haha. I ended up deciding that they weren't quite what I was looking for. The 40 should fit a 34.
