    Yeah I can deal with sleeves being wide but that body when measured against my other outerwear...little too wide for me.

    These look really nice, but I still don't understand this recent fascination with varsity jackets. Why would I want to look like I'm wearing an old jacket from high school (or worse), have someone think I was a letterman at a local high school?

    It's one thing to have a jacket whose style is vaguely inspired by a varsity jacket, but some of these look almost exactly like a high school one! In that sense it almost seems like a costume to my eyes-- Cool to wear occasionally, but not sure I would wear it every day.

    Because they are nice piece of genuine Americana that have their own, honest, style. It is a quality product that does the job with aplomb and at a very good price.

    Weird, I'm probably going to be in Centralia at the end of the month. Maybe I can stop by and see the shop.

    Well, I never cared much for the Americana look myself. However, these jackets do look nice. So no hate from me.

    Long is an option for all sizes--according to CKM, it adds 1.5 inches to sleeves--body can be longer too, by request. As for measurements, I don't have em offhand, but there's a 34 listed on this page--can anyone translate?

    You can order whenever--instructions in the first post.

    August 7.

    Final price, including CONUS shipping, will be $175.
    If you would like international shipping, contact me and we'll figure something out.

    We are trying to finalize orders soonisher than later (order deadline Friday August 7) so, with the estimated 6-week lead time, the jackets should be ready in September.

    If you would like to order, copy and fill out the order form below, send it to [email protected] and [email protected], and Paypal $175 to Mauro at [email protected].

    Color options are below the form, rendered as well as possible with my crappy point and shoot.
