Overall a very well made and stylish coat. Wore it on Pirate Day and got a ton of compliments. The actual construction is very heavy, well done, and well detailed. The ONLY reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because of the back buttons. The button holes in the back used to tighten the coat were so tight it actually tore the vinyl covering off the buttons. If it weren't for this issue I would have rated this 5 stars all the way.
Infinitely higher quality than the photo shows: lined brocade with leather buttons which can be used to actually close the coat from either side, so it's left with rakish lapels and a modern(ish) cut! Can be stylishly worn in posh, modern public venues, as well as of course for historical re-enactments. Not destined for the closet or only special occasions! And Yes, this item does indeed run a tad large, at least for this company's line of Indian sartorials.
well made and looks great. runs a little large though. I usually wear between a medium and a large and this in a small fits well.
