    Hmmm... English Travel Jacket marked in very small letters as 'Imported'... with ad copy about 'Roast Pork with Yorkshire Pudding' and 'Newcastle' to make it seem so 'English'. I bet it wasn't 'Imported' from England, that's for sure.

    'Imported' being the usual euphemism for 'Made in China'.

    I'm a fan, been eyeing it myself. But yeah, the length (22.5" on a size 1) is pretty short, so it depends on how tall you are. MoM pieces I've seen/handled in person are excellent though, and Jay is always fantastic to deal with.

    As a word of warning, I think someone mentioned getting screwed over by Caliroots on customs or VAT or something, so keep that in mind if you're buying from them and you're in the US.

    Caliroots definitely doesn't mark items down and ships via UPS. You'll get a customs bill. If I recall, when I bought my summer achilles from them, my bill from UPS was about $20.
