I’ve been eyeing this jacket for a couple of years and finally made the decision to purchase I’m so impressed with the quality and substance of this jacket . I have a Ralph Lauren jacket that I paid double for compared to this Jacket it’s quality is horrible.you must have a jacket that can stand the test of time not just look good . Ebbets flannels makes the best Jacket I just wish the sleeves were a different kind of leather but no complaints. And Ebbets customer service is excellent they contacted me and answered all my questions.
Excellent Item. Very well made. Was worth the 7 weeks of wait. Awesome design, feel and fit.
