Nice jacket! I've been on the hunt for the same one in grey. Instead, I got a Theory. I guess that's a step up...With full canvass and all! Got lucky!
Got pics of the make tags? Where was this made? I only cop the ones that are made in France. I got 2. One being my size, light blue OCBD, and slim fit!!!
