I just received this coat today (I ordered the faux suede version), and I was completely blown away! The fabric is absolutely perfect. Extremely soft to the touch, thick enough to be warm in cooler weather, yet still light and flowing to produce that nice "swoosh" in the wind. If you are a stickler for screen-accuracy, you literally cannot tell the difference between this fabric and the one used for the actual coat from the show - color and texture alike.
Indy's latest pattern is superb in every detail - the darts and vents at the back, both the front and back button closures, the lining, the flap pockets and inner pockets - everything! My issue with many of the other replica coats out there is the lapels. This one hits it bang-on. The lapels are thin enough to show off all four buttons, yet long enough to really complete the look. This is, without question, the most screen-accurate version of this coat you will find. Period.
The tailoring is just top-notch. The fit is exactly what I hoped for - a nice trim fit, yet with enough room to be comfortable when wearing it over a suit. I was particularly happy about the back pleat - it opens and closes very naturally with arm movement and never gets stuck in either position.
I simply can't express how happy I am with this coat! If you have any doubt in your mind as to whether or not you should buy this coat, just do it. And definitely go for the faux suede version - you will not be disappointed!
