Rated 5 out of 5 by SFCoffeebean Fabulous find, great for Fall
I've been stalking this jacket for years and *finally* they've reintroduced it in Black again.. perfect for me. I received the field jacket last week and it is definitely a keeper. It's the next best thing aside from a Barbour field jacket.
Fabric is indeed stiffer, due to the waxed cotton. I can appreciate this to keep out the SF elements especially during chilly foggy nights. The fit is true to size. I am 5'8", 38C up top with a longer torso - size Large fit me well with plenty of room for layers. I normally wear size L/10 in their outerwear - 10s are on the fitted side. The fit along the body is boxy, but I was able to take in the waist by selecting the next set of snap taps at the waist.
Jacket looks great and is slimming. First comment when my Hubby saw it was, "HEY! That looks good! So how come I don't get a new jacket too to match!" I can't wait to pair this with jeans and knee high riding/moto boots in the Fall. For now, it works for my summer wardrobe too :) City chicka!

This jacket is my new wardrobe staple. Comfortable weight for spring or fall, nice details, classic style-- totally happy with it. I think it runs a little big. I'm typically a small or medium; originally ordered a medium and it was far too big, but the small fits great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Babsi Not properly re-sized for tall version
I bought this jacket in medium-tall and, while the sleeves and body were long enough (as pictured on the model), the designers had not moved the waist side snaps down. The result was a good-fitting jacket with a waistline (when snapped in narrower) that looks almost like an empire waist. I'm finicky about fit, so this might not matter to some tall women, but I returned the jacket. Otherwise excellent style and quality!

This is the perfect jacket to wear on days with a chilly wind or a chance of rain, due to the waxed cotton fabric. It would also work as a nice fall / early winter jacket in warmer climates because of the heavier weight. The styling of the buttons, pockets, and back accoutrements makes this one of my favorite outerwear pieces because it's flattering and stylish.
Other reviewers mentioned the stiffness of the fabric, but since I was expecting waxed cotton, I wasn't surprised that it isn't 100% flexible. I was actually thinking it would be stiffer than it is.
Overall, I'd highly recommend it and I would purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dana You'll have this forever!
After seeing this jacket on one of my favorite bloggers, I had to go purchase one. I've had the field jacket for a little over a year and it's an absolute staple in my closet. The material is perfect. It goes with everything. It's transitional. I recommend it to everyone! I sized down (XXS - I'm 5'2 and 120lbs) to make it fit more of like a blazer, but I can still layer underneath for added warmth - I love it so much, I try to wear it in the winter as well.
