Beautiful, well-made jacket. I have considered buying this jacket a few times and finally pulled the trigger. I'm glad I did. I am extremely pleased. It was on sale and well worth the price.
This is my favorite out of all of my Ebbets jackets I've ordered. Beautiful and top quality historical piece.
