    Military Jacket + Wool "Car Coats"

    So, I know that this isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I really like nice military jackets. They're like leather jackets without the cache of "oooo, he's wearing a leather jacket," and without the price tag, too. Anyone know of a relatively reasonable slim fitting one?

      So far, no complaints.


        I got that jacket a month or two ago and absolutely love it (especially if you are in a colder area). The jacket is very fitted and looks great.

        They appear to have some mediums in stock here:

          I like military jackets and wool coats; Express has some that might fit a tighter budget.
