    Anyone with a fit pic of the James Grose aviation jacket? @FrankCowperwood didn't you pick this piece up?

    For such classic checks with regular color it's a no brainer and would probably last you a lifetime providing your body measurements don't change. It took me way longer to justify spending that much on a single sportcoat gun club as it may go out of style and it better be sewn by the older master tailor there. Nowadays I've been getting sportcoats from cheaper sub $600 brands like SuSu, Boglioli, Benjamin, etc. Unlike casual jackets they are harder to resell afterall.

    I have *almost* bought this about a dozen times already. I think you would wear it well.

    I’ve got the same suede but in the Manila rider jacket. Can’t recommend JG suede enough. Supple, soft, sturdy.

    I am in the same boat. Have gone to this jacket probably 50 times. It just screams casual cool to me. I appreciate your faith! Maybe Greg or Kyle can provide a fit pic tomorrow. I know it would really help me off th fence.

    Your picture doesn't seem to have the same yellowness of the pics on NMWA's site. Which photos do you think are closer to what you see in real life (understanding every monitor displays differently)?

    TTS, but slim. If you do a lot of bicep curls or love pasta maybe ask Kyle for his opinion first

    The coolness of 4 layers instead of a padded overcoat
