    I've not heard of it either, but it's completely unstructured, so there are less construction issues to deal with.

    It is a touch on the short side, which is very trendy -- and I'm afraid, on it's way out. If you're okay with $110 for something that may look dated soon, then it's a fine purchase.

    If you want something that will last longer, I'd give this one a pass and keep looking.

    That jacket seems like its in a very grey area, a little more waist suppression or if it fit you tighter than it did the model then it would start looking quite feminine.

    Yeah, I'm a bit thrown off by it. On the one hand, it seems like an excellent value (wool/cashmere blend, unstructured, half-lined, horn buttons, navy colour). On the other hand, I know absolutely nothing about this brand. It looks like a higher quality version of Theory (but I'm unsure even about that).

    I'm a bit shorter than the model, so hopefully it will look closer to a regular fit.

    Anybody know if Hartford pieces are constructed well?

    Any vendor who cannot display his products without unseemly wrinkles rolls should be avoided.

    It's shorter than what I normally wear but what I like about it is that it's unstructured.
