THE TOWN COAT (Unlined)

THE TOWN COAT (Unlined)

Product Review (submitted on August 29, 2013):
So it seems they redesigned this coat and it's now available at a great price. I chose the older version not only for the sale but because I preferred the unlined, since even though this is a 'Town Coat' it is every bit as good as a field coat, and being unlined allows the breathability of the pure wool to shine (plus it'll stink less). The wool is fantastic, and unbelievably soft for 100% wool. While the fabric is 2 oz heavier per yard than filson, it is not prickly/itchy at all. Definitely the choice for people sensitive to wool (I'm not sensitive to it, but I certainly won't complain about it being soft). Get this while you can for town, field or both. I would've got both colors, but I already had a charcoal filson. I can't say whether the softer feel will translate into less durability or water resistance as I haven't yet had the chance to test this coat, but I can say it is a well built item. Solid stitching that screams made in USA. I did size down, and I'm glad I did. Normally I wear a 40 in suit coats (my chest actually measures 41) but the 38 in this Coat fits me perfect with just enough room to allow layering but not look bulky with just a shirt. The gussets at the shoulder ensure great movement. Not sure why they rebuilt it, how could they have done it better?
