This jacket is great, the design is truly original expecially in the shape of the pockets and sleeves. For its price the quality is good enough. Well seamed and apparently strong. It's a good choice for spring or autumn and even if it is indicated as a quite military jacket it looks also incredible elegant. About the size, I choosen an L size ( I usually dress M size) which is an XL in the tag. In several sites they explained the conversion of the measures. What I did was easier: asian people is way more thin than caucasians so I considered a size more of what I usually choose without the doubt to think that I was choosing an XL asian size jacket. My advice is, choose an european size more of what u usually dress. Forget the rest because even the measures for back, sleeves etc change from site to site for the same size. My choice was perfect it fits so great that I can't ask for more. If you look for a cheap jacket with an original design, this is the best choice, I searched on several sites before find the black one which is extremely required. But I think I would buy also a military green one just for outside trekking.. go ahead!!
