Probably my most useful wardrobe item
So far have used this as an outdoor jacket (tested so far from 32-5x F), a sweater indoors, and a blanket. No attached hood and a relatively high cut (you can cup the bottom edge of it like a blazer in your hands) means this is not the garment of choice in high winds from the north, but it works at least from freezing to the 50's F, no problem. Towards freezing I add a scarf, so I don't have to zip all the way. This jacket is very comfortable even in short sleeve shirts most of the time. Most annoying thing about it is that on the right collar tip, it tends to curl up a bit in the down position, which messes up my hat flaps slightly. Not quite as successful for indoor wear as outdoors because the natural folds in the leather tend to stick the wool side into the arm a bit if they're bare such as with short sleeve shirts. Easily solved with a long-sleeved shirt of natural fibers (I tried a Cold Gear shirt one time and that destroyed the breathability of the combined ensemble resulting in unpleasant warmth). Using it like a light blanket resulted in a pleasant nap. Aesthetically, the pics here don't show the pleasing contrast between the gray colored wool/fur at the collar and cuffs against the brown of the leather side. I wear both visibly at all times, and it's strange that they don't show it that way in a single picture. There's really only one pic that shows the fur side color and only if you're looking closely.
