I have just received my jacket, and--in spite of slight damage caused by Customs carelessly opening the packet in transit--I could not be more delighted with it. The fit is excellent, the garment is robustly made and comfortable, and the attention to detail is impressive. I chose dark brown goatskin, as I wanted something warmer in tone than the 'authentic' black; I highly recommend it for anyone but the purist, since it looks imposing without swallowing light or being too forbidding. While the body has the conventional lining, I asked Indy for a striped lining in the sleeves. The effect is lavish but subtle. At the time of writing it is too warm in Southern California to wear the jacket much, half an hour or so this morning was enough to bring out the suppleness of the leather and encourage the jackt to adjust to my rather bony physique. I sense that this is going to become a daily favourite, at least for three seasons of the year. I've seen other replicas of the U-boat jacket, and none come close to matching this in cut or finish.
