- small lapels and lack of protruding shearling under the cuffs and waist create a shearling jacket that doesn't show much actual shearling.
and of course
- the half-ass epaulets
It's a fine jacket, but for over 2000 dollars I expect better. Shearling is great for evoking luxury and aristocracy (expense and comfort of the material, as well as the rich textures and subtle bulk) - why throw all that away?
