    how easy/difficult for DIY or tailor is it to remove the polyester lining to make it an unlined jacket? Advised against doing so?

    I imagine it would be rather simple, but with a chance of looking pretty bad depending on how well the jacket is finished on the inside, how much lining the jacket actually has to remove, and how you remove the lining.

    They had a bunch of 1/2 lined cotton and linen jackets (maybe suits, all the pants were on floor racks and the jackets on the wall).

    I was surprised how tight they were in the shoulders. I'm usually a 40, sometimes even a 38, and at H&M the 42 was still a bit narrow in the shoulders. [​IMG]

    They looked pretty good for the price though.

    i just looked at my new one, exchanged the linning looks like its sewn to a taping running along the seams, so im guessing if you ct that taping out you can pull it out with ease,

    but you will need to sew down the edges of the linen material where thepocket used to prtrude past the lining
