just what I wanted -
By: adbrian from Vermont
My old leather jacket was tooworn to wear. Ordered this one, at a super sale price, and it fits perfectly. Shipping was another matter. UPS to USPS was a rough trip, from the looks of the box. Re-taped,accordiand at one end. Coat was fine, thanks goodness.
BETTER THAN EXPECTED -
I have been watching this jacket for quite some time but the price was holding me back--I just couldn't fit it in ths budget. THEN, it went on sale! The jacket arrived and it was perfect in size, quality, and overall appeal. I anticipate many years of quality wear from this fine product. It is soo much better than jackets being sold in the leading department stores

This jacket fits well ( i bought it in a medium), and has a nice acetate lining inside comes in a nice coat bag. Just be sure that when your's arrives, assuming you buy one, trust me you want to, you dont leave it hanging in the coat bag, its is leather it needs to breathe. One strange thing, mine was a lighter color than the one shown in the picture, not to much of a difference, but noticeable. I dont mind, it is a handsome color and it catches the eye, it isnt the same color like all the leaher jackets youy see nowadays
Good Jacket -
By: lmt737 from Nyack, NY
The jacket was very nice. However, the color was not anything like the picture. Someone mentioned an organish color i would say that is accurate. Really the picture shows an old broken in jacket and when you order a new jacket its not broken in. thats really all it is. Another note, i was expecting this to fit like a tight racing jacket or moto jacket. not the case. I am a meduim and the jacket just did not fit as i expected. too loose. they should do the cut tighter so it fits like a racing jacket. but that is what i was looking for.

Another reviewer was scathing about the quality of this jacket; I don't know what he was expecting from lambskin. From new, this jacket has that nicely matured appearance that all good leather eventually acquires. It is good quality lambskin and matches Orvis's photo. Paypal e-mailed me, within seconds of ordering this item, declining the transaction; so I ordered it directly on my Mastercard. Subsequently, I received two jackets - thanks Paypal for the wrong info! I was sufficiently taken with the jacket to make a present of one to my son. I bought this in the sale. I'm of the opinion that I could do a lot better than this jacket for the original very high price.
Short and dumpy -
The coat cost 700 dollars and came tossed loosely into a broken cardboard box that was too large for the jacket. There was no garment bag; no protection whatsoever. I'm 6'1, 195. The coat is built for someone with 30 inch arms and a Large pot belly. It flapped around on me like a balloon. So I ordered the XL and it was the same deal with the fit. This one did show up in a garment bag at least, although again; the cardboard box was beat up and broken and too large. For that price the quality was horrible. The leather is thin and cheap and the tailoring is awful. Finally, the color is not as shown. It's more of a yellowish orangeish brown. Not dark or rich at all.

Excellent Quality -
By: Goran from Knoxville, TN
The jacket is a little pricey but the quality and styling are top notch. But you get what you pay for and this jacket is no exception. If you can't try one on for size, you can rely on their sizing guidelines to help you get the correct size even if you are not normally proportioned.
