I was looking for a jacket that went with everything. I do mean everything. Dress up, dress down, business, casual, night on the town... all of it. I found it in this jacket. The fit is more tailored on than it looks in the photo, and looks more modern as well. What is great:
1. Fit. Gorgeous. Fitted but comfortably so.
2. Length. Long enough to cover most blouses, not so long to give a lady a wide-hip look.
3. Material. The lambskin is butter soft and the lining of good quality.
What I worry about:
1. The button closure. Made of thin loops of lambskin, I worry that they will eventually pull out or get warn away. The jacket construction makes me think that a quality leatherworker or tailer could replace the loops with something else if and when that occurs.
I am thrilled with the purchase and have worn it nearly every day for the past 2 weeks. I found the jacket in Santa Fe and the excellent salesman shipped it to my home so that I wouldn't have to worry about traveling with the jacket (summer heat and all). It was shipped the next day.
