I'm looking to buy an unconstructed wool jacket and am looking for suggestions. I usually wear a 42L in a suit jacket. I came across one online that looks nice, but I have no experience with Gilbert & Lewis. Here's the G&L jacket:
Thoughts on the above or recommendations?

Damn that looks like a nice coat. Ive never heard of them, but get a kick out of the name since Gilbert and Lewis are the two protagonists in Revenge of the nerds.

I wear a 42L also. My frustration is finding SW&D approved unconstructed jackets that aren't crazy short. If you find any PM me please.

^^^ Pocketsquareguy, you might want to check the Monitaly jacket at Revolver in San Francisco. The 42 was too short but the 44 was the perfect fit length wise - the drawback for me was the larger chest.
