Not a great fit.,
May 5, 2015
By: Rkal
from Buffalo, NY
"Beautiful jacket. Quality craftsmanship as far as materials and assembly (Made by Schott USA) BUT.... Sleeves are four inches too long (and I have long arms!) Arm holes are tiny, even the skinniest person would have a hard to putting this jacket on. Also, very slim cut.
Bottom line, well made but very poorly thought out garment which I do not believe would fit any human with arms."

Stunningly Bad Fit,
December 20, 2014
By: Laplander

"This jacket looks super cool in a catalog photo. Once I received it however, I can't imagine how the designers could even put it on the market. The fit is mind boggling through the shoulders and arms. The only person who who could wear it is Jack Skellington because the arms are so tight I literally could not swat a mosquito if I had to or take a sip of coffee. I simply could not bend my arms and that is not an exaggeration. I've shopped Orvis for 25 years and love so many of my purchases. This one is the biggest disappointment."

Bad Jacket,
November 6, 2013
By: Jaala1
from Amherst, NY
"Very stiff shiny leather used in sleeves, Almost prevented flexion of my elbows. Returned it to Orvis same day. The woollen ends of the sleeves were not the same length. The cheaper blue varsity jacket from Orvis is of far better quality but unfortunately did not fit so also returned it. I need a 'long; size which Orvis does not provide . Are all Orvis customers short and stocky?"
