be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I am 6ft tall and weigh 200 pounds with a size 44 chest (bare chest measurement).
The size guide suggested that for a normal fit I should choose XL and for a fitted /slim look then L would be the best option.
I went with the Large and that was the right choice for me. It fits very well with a flannel or denim shirt underneath and still has room for a light to medium sweater. It is by no means restrictive at all. I thinks the XL would have been too baggy.
I also have the 709 wool car coat in XL, as was suggested by the Size guide, For that item, as a winter coat it was the right choice as it gives more room for winter layers. But with this 701 jacket the Large is definitely right for me.
Another reviewer stated that the jacket was too short. I totally disagree, it looks just right and falls just level with the bottom of my belt. I note the 701X appears to be the same design with a 28.75 inch length. Personally I think it would look too long and prefer the 26 inch.
The fabric is warm and substantial. Perfect for Autumn and milder winter days.
A classic Americana style jacket
After reading the previous review was concerned about length, but this is pretty much the same length as all schott jackets being belt line. Great quality, substantial, and warm.
I really liked this jacket and it's made really well. I returned it though because the length is strangely short. I felt like I was wearing a quasi-midriff coat or something. Jacket needs to be a bit longer. Also, not a deal-breaker but it's a 80/20 wool blend, would be better if it were 100% wool (even if it cost a bit more). The material description should be more thorough and accurate.
