A nice jacket but.....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Frank Bullitt jacket (Misc.)
What you get for your money is fairly a nice jacket. It's well constructed and the materials are fine. Is it much like the jacket from Bullitt though, which is what it sets out to be and is it's main selling point? Well, there are problems. The elbow patches are much smaller rather than the distinctive long patches on the original. This was aparently a deliberate choice by the makers. I don't think it was a good choice but ok... A bigger problem I have is with the button placement. On McQueen's jacket it's visually obvious that the top button hole is level with the top pocket - creating a very high gorge typically 60s look if this is buttoned. On the replica this top button is at least 5" too low and conseqently the middle button is also a couple of inches too low. The fabric of the original has a more pronounced striped effect on screen that this herringbone displays too. So what we have is a nice three button jacket with a ticket pocket that bears a very superficial resemblence to the Bullitt jacket. Frankly, I had hoped for better given the manufacturers apparent motivation for making the jacket. Also for £200 you could probably find a similarly close-enough jacket for £30 or £40 less.
