Construction and the material are excellent. So many pockets and color is fantastic. It is partially self-lined and has two internal pockets. I bought mine April 2017, worn a few times each spring/summer season.

Work jacket, made in London, with a linen of middling weight (260gsm) from Northern Ireland, and horn buttons from the Midlands.
The jacket fits true to size, and so the mannequin — the most standard 38 in the world — wears S. The body is short, and its shape is fairly straight. The sleeves are narrow, and the cuffs tighten firmly around the wrist.
The jacket is a short and casual one, with five buttons. It has a stand collar — a Mao collar, sometimes called, or a Delhi collar, depending on your historical reference points — which starts an inch high at the front, and rises gently around the back of the neck.
The buttons on the jacket are horn, and are dark in colour and matte in finish. Being as they are an entirely natural thing, these buttons, each one looks a little different to the next, varying in tone and hue. The same goes for the little backing buttons (below-left) which support each of the buttons on the front.
The jacket has five visible pockets. First are two open pockets running across the front. They are deep and capacious, and are best thought of as buckets for all and every belonging. They are supported at either corner with strong tacking stitches (above-right) — as are all the other patch pockets here.
The jacket has a chest pocket on the right-side as worn — by no means slight in its own right — which is mirrored by stitching of another pocket over on the opposite side.
The sleeves are a standard sort of width, but they taper sharply at the elbow and fasten snugly around the wrist with gusset-type cuffs.
The jacket has two medium-size jet pockets on the inside — one on each side. That brings the total pocket count on the jacket up to five — or even six, if you include the hidden one, the stitching of which is hinted at on the front of the body.
The jacket is half-lined in the body with the same material as the outer cloth. It has a little pleat down the centre — decorative, really — and the sleeves are lined with lightweight cotton.
The cloth here is a mid-weight hopsack linen. It is a deceptively simple cloth. The colour is very deep, the handle is soft and smooth rather than coarse, and up close can be seen the little slubs and markings that elevate a very good, trusty linen, to a pleasingly characterful one.
