I just received my new SK Button Vest. I ordered the Olive color. This is a quality made vest in every sense of the word. For size comparison, I am six feet, four inches tall, 215 pounds and 40 inch waist. I ordered Size XL and it fits perfectly in length and body. Size XXL would have been too big. Prior to purchase, I emailed SK Customer Service and they provided the information I needed to get my size correct. In my opinion, it is a generous cut, rather than a modern cut. The XL has a back length of 28 inches. The front of the vest measures 24 inches across just below the arm pit area. It is a perfect fit for me. The 26 ounce wool fabric is smooth and soft. The stitching was outstanding and the buttons were sewn on very securely. This vest will definitely get some use during the upcoming 2016/2017 Winter season here in Colorado. I have wool vests from all the well known manufacturers, however, this vest is superior to all others in workmanship, fabric weight, value and design. I will order one or two more colors since I like this one so much. Signed: FatBack&Collards - Colorado@8500'
