    Iconic Nau Riding Jacket/blazer in “caviar” – a very, very dark gray with a matte finish to the material. Classic 3-roll-2 button sports coat design, with extra button under lapel to close in inclement weather. Two hand pockets in classic (slightly angled) hacking design, zip breast pocket and inside wallet pocket. Two working buttons at cuff, single vent at rear, and zero padding in shoulders. Unlined except in shoulders and sleeves

    Made of recycled polyester with a DWR coating, it doesn’t look like nylon but is water and wind repellent. This thing is a killer travel piece – ball it up and stuff it in your carry on and it shakes out without a wrinkle. Lousy weather? Button up the neck and keep rolling. Louche with a pair of jeans or classy enough to pass in a “jackets required” establishment without the hassle of packing a more formal coat.

    Nau is known for its technical urban wear and this is the piece that sets the standard. Jacket is spotless and barely worn – no scuffs, stains, rips/tears, odors. From a non-smoking household.

    SIZING: It is an XL. Please note that Nau’s stuff runs very slim and I am a standard “large (6’/180) by any measure and it fits perfectly with some room to layer underneath. A large would have fit me, but the BOC was very short and there wasn’t any room underneath so I went up – Google around and you will see this is common with Nau’s fits.

    Sizing matches a typical 42 or a Euro 44 jacket, but check measurements below. As with the brand’s other jackets, the sleeves run a bit long.

    Shoulders: 19.5”
    BOC: 32 ¼”
    Chest: 23”
    Sleeve: 26.5”

    Retail pricing is $235; yours for $75 shipped CONUS.
