Stuman, here is an answer that probably won't help much. When I ordered mine form O'connells, Bernie said to go one size up to accomodate a sweater. An error was made in the shipping dept, and they sent the size down, that I would have gotten, left to my own devices.quote:Originally posted by stuman
How do these jackets run in terms of size? If I want to wear a sweater underneath should I go for the next size up? Thanks
I got the navy myself from O'Connels a few weeks ago. It is great. It's not really navy though. A bit lighter. I may someday pick up a khaki for jeans and gray trousers. We really could form a team. Recall that this same jacket was about $350 in last years Press summer catalog. Glad I waited.
How light is it exactly?
It is wise to take into account the pants you will be wearing. A tan Baracuta and khakis looks weird to me. Back in the '60s London Fog had a similar jacket they offered in buttery yellow. It was an amazingly versatile color but seems to have vanished.I am considering the tan baracuta. I wear jeans most of the time. I have had many tan jackets over the years. Works for me.
