Sorry, I haven't checked back here since my last post. Anyways, I got it for Christmas. It feels real high quality and is nice, though I'm not really sure if it fits like it's supposed to. I understand that it's British and assumingly somewhat tight, but as it is now- any smaller then it'd be uncomfortable. I can feel it restrict my movement if I bring my arms up or very slightly if I cross my arms. Right now, the sleeves end right up to my hands and the top of the zipper, (not the buttons), has very little slack in my neck when zipped up. This is good fit, right? I debating whether I should trade it for a large or simply wash it and wait until it loosens up a bit. I could live with how it is now, though I might prefer it a bit bigger, if I indeed did get a size too small. How much bigger would a large be, and how much of a difference, if any, would washing it give? EDIT: To give another example of how it fits, if I bend over to touch my feet it feels extremely tight, where as it feels like it's nearly about to rip at the shoulders. EDIT 2: Even though it's trivial, I want to point out that I'm American so I'm more used to the relax fit. Though, if this is anything like getting a new pair of shoes then I'll get used to it. Also, I wanted to mention that unlike the pictures on the website, there is no lining under the zipper, I guess. It goes straight to the plaid interior, which is something I like. Did you get the BS? I've been eyeing those for $30 as well...You say the tartan starts at the zipper? I thought only the true baracuta does this, a feature that is essential with this jacket, being able to see the tartan peaking out while its zipped almost all the way up...anywhoo I have a real baracuta that fits pretty close to body but enough room to wear a buttondown and light sweater also underneath, as I believe they should, being British or American shouldn't effect a good fit lol. Oh yeah I don't pop the collar on mine but wear it slightly unzipped/ just enough to shoot the tartan.
