This jacket exceeded my expectations. The leather is a nice, worn colour. The Shearling is thick and warm. I was worried about the fit as it appears to be a tight cut, but the fit is perfect. It is close enough for warmth and style, without being at all confining. The jacket is incredibly warm, and with the full zip collar, there is no need for a scarf. I live in Canada and the winters are very cold. No worries with this jacket. Great, easily accessible pockets, that aren't often seen with shearling coats. Lots of compliments.
