The minute I slipped into this jacket, it instantly became the coolest, most comfortable thing I own. The lining is so warm and the jacket itself is heavy but not bulky. I found myself coming back to look at this jacket and finally bought it and man am I glad I did. Like everything Tellason makes, the quality is out of this world.
The only reason I give 4 stars is because the sleeves width is very big
Got this jacket at Berkeley Supply in Colorado a few weeks ago and it has been perfect in the cool mornings and still comfortable in the afternoons when it warms up. It is soft (not itchy) wool inside and is breaking in nicely outside. My opinion is it runs a hair larger than my 12oz Cone Mills unlined jacket but I would go with the same size if you have the unlined version. I look forward to the many years of enjoyment I know it will bring. If you are in Denver stop by Berkeley Supply and say hi to Eli or Mike- they are awesome.
The quality of this garment makes it worth the price of admission. I've only been wearing mine a few weeks and several people have asked me about it thinking it's a Levi jacket. Some want to inspect it closer and are really impressed by what they see and feel, especially with the blanket lining. I tell them it's a Tellason but never the price, wonder how many Google it and think I'm crazy. For me it's worth every penny knowing I'll likely have it around the rest of my life...THIS IS A GREAT JACKET...nothing like the overseas crap you'll find at the mall...
