Thinking of getting a Freenote Rider's Jacket in either

Oak

View attachment 1864271

or Rust

Feels like it fits a hole in my wardrobe (brownish jacket, waxed canvas, more cropped silhouette than most of my jackets). Also pretty unique with the lining and a bit of unique details for a Type 3 esque jacket.

I certainly don't *need* it though.
I have this jacket in Tobacco and wear it all the time. The quality is top notch and I don't personally feel it's too long, especially if you don't tuck your shirts. Temperature range is roughly 40-65 degrees depending on how you layer. Of the two colors here, I'd shoot for the Oak. Freenote also did a collaboration release of the Oak with alpaca lining that looks really nice, actually considering picking this one up myself.

Got any fit pics with it? Would love to see it in the wild. Particularly with an untucked shirt but I'll take anything you got

Yeah I tuck in most shirts, and too long for me does not too long for someone else make.
I still don’t love it though 😅

Considering buying this 3 button Isaia Base S sport coat - 75% wool, 25% linen off eBay. Does the lapel look a little "weak" to anyone? It doesn't look like it really extends to the second button as I would expect. Maybe it's just the photo? Also thoughts on a sport coat with linen in the mix for 3 season wear?

Not sure if this is the right place to post this question, but what is the general consensus on the quality of Mr P items these days? I'm liking some of their jackets and there is a sale right now.
