    I was dead set on the Fishtail Raincoat but GTfan's write up and recent pics posted have ultimately steered me away. Loved the exaggerated opening but what's shown in actuality compared to product pics is disappointing and a deal breaker for me. I thought the $388 price tag was a bit much for it, all things considered, but I couldn't pass up the jacket. Still like the jacket, but I'm not enamoured with it like before, and just can't justify buying something at that price that fits the bill only somewhat. Appreciate the pics and reviews, guys.

    Over/Under on how many people will be heartbroken by the flight jacket price? Love the concept, looking forward to the site photos to really show which jackets accentuate which colors

    I am still torn as to what size flight jacket I am going to buy. I had to return the wool bomber in size large as it was too small. It was the smallest jacket I have ever worn for a "large", it was just crazy small I could barely do it up - usually I wear mediums in the mercer tees and I have the medium raincoat that fits nice. I am 6 foot 180 pounds athletic build. I am thinking of going with a large in the flight jacket but I guess I'll wait to see measurements? The problem is if you buy the wrong size by the time you most likely return it the size you need will be sold out.

    That is very helpful for me as I am 5'11 and 175 also athletic build, so now I am sure I should go with XL.

    You can buy two sizes and return the one that doesn't fit.

    ahaha ^ yeah it's not very practical for me. Plus have to pay around 100-150 in duties just to bring it in to Canada. To send it back even more shipping/duties.

    It's become extremely rare for a JE piece to fit too large. Unless you are planning on going tarzan shirtless wearing the jacket, when in doubt go to the size up, especially if you like layering underneath.

    XL though? Large should be fine no? 6 ft 180 pounds and I need an XL? that seems a little crazy - that's why I was so shocked at needing the XL in wool bomber. I guess football players and stuff are just too big for JE in general? For instance a 6 ft 220 pound man would need a double XL most likely and what about guys who are 240 250??

    I really want to stick with the large on the flight jacket but I know if it's too small I won't be able to get the XL in time. The conundrum.
