like another reviewer mentioned, the photos give a sense that the materials are different than they actually are. it's not a denim/flannel coat, it's more of a plastic-polyester shell with a thin cotton liner. it may just take some time to "break-in" but mine still feels awful stiff after wearing at least a dozen times. sizing is pretty true or possibly a little larger than listed. overall, a pretty nice jacket but not quite what I expected.
I bought this for my son. Immediately out of the box, I knew he wouldn't like it. Maybe it comes from some primal instinct, but he does not like clothing that makes noise. This does. It's almost an old-school ski jacket without the warmth. From the looks of the jacket in pictures, it appears to be denim-like material and the inside a soft flannel? It's neither. It is a thin cotton shirt sewn into a nylon jacket. Since it's mine now, I like that it's reversible. It looks okay on a woman, but it still makes noise and isn't warm. Overall it's flimsy and seems like it would rip or snag on any twig. It is just not worth the $.
Okay, I know this is just a shirt...but really, it's not. This bad dog has a really great DWR finish that repels the light rains and mist of a fall morning, and then brings the style to the urban portion of your day with a great fit and pattern. I ordered mine with the black shell and haven't really let the plaid cotton inner fabric out yet...so not sure how reversible these really are. Great alternative to that played out windbreaker you have in your closet, and a little insulation to keep you toasty warm.
