Does anyone own or have handled this oilcloth jacket? I'm wondering if it fits large similar to a barbour or it's more of a slimmer fit at your true size.

Fit is like a sports coat. Sort of like a more generous version of the Barbour Beacon sport coat if you’re familiar with that one (which is actually pretty slim fit).

Thanks! Unfortunately looking for something to layer so the hunt for a Barbour alternative continues.

Not sure if you noticed but they have product measurements for a lot of items now on the US site. You need to use a browser to see them. No actual measurements for pants either.
Yep, noticed that. No measurements on the EU site (yet), so I have to remind myself to switch to US, copy the measurements there, and switch back to EU to order.

Yes, got an email, but should be available to anyone. There's a tiny banner above the header **kickback special**. It should also be advertised on the frontpage.
Maybe because I was using my phone... when I googled it and followed the link, it showed and it worked. Thanks for making me order a wallet I really don´t need, but really want ;-)

Don't order too many things you don't need or that wallet will be empty :tongue:

Decided to create a Google reference sheet where I record type of clothing, brand, the brand's fit description, and the actual size I ended up getting. Will save me (and the store, the mailman, etc..) the hassle of returns in the future. Time to get organized.

Just take to an alteration tailor, go for 32 and shorten inseam sounds like better bet for you most of the time

Haha, trick of the light I am sure, I am up 20 pounds in the last 10 years from good livin' lol. This one is a S from before they transformed into the "slim" fit Western shirt, which I am a solid M in.

I always thought all the western shirt are slim fit, guess got to be careful when I go on eBay hunt next time, any idea roughly when that happened?
