Stunning jacket. The tan cowhide while soft, is heavy and substantial, and is a lovely rusty brown colour; I had been a little concerned that it would be a bit too orange, but not so.
The fit is superb. I normally wear a 40 and so ordered a medium. Perfect fit in terms of chest, back length and sleeve length.
The most impressive aspect of the Rocketeer jacket is the attention to detail. The under-arm gussets, the half-belt back with adjustable traps, the stitching on the epaulets, the more obvious features like the detachable bib and brass buttons, all combine to make this both a screen accurate Rocketeer jacket and a beautiful, retro style aviator.
I've been a huge fan of the movie since it came out, and I finally pulled the trigger on this jacket. It's a sturdy heavy light brown leather that looks just like the movie (you can tell they seemed spend time looking at the film to reproduce the jacket in great detail. The bib is detachable and the jacket looks great with or without it. I admit I was a little nervous about the sizing, I bought the First Avenger jacket from Wested in a 44, and then a classic Indy jacket in size 42 and both of those fit perfectly. Based on that, I ordered this jacket in a large and like the others it's a perfect fit. Consistent quality, consistent fit... Wested continues to impress me. It's also nice that they happen to be really nice folks to deal with.
