: : If you're referring to your post of the 20th, the size you're getting sounds correct to me. I just ordered a size 44, and am 6 ft 1 1/2 in myself, and the jacket I received fits me so well it's scarey. I received the jacket with cotton lining, but because I specifically requested this type, since living here in the south, a silk lining is not all that comfortable, where the cotton breathes. Sounds to me like you're on the right track. One thing I haven't really figured out from the posts is the discussions of the Raiders or LC jacket. I don't recall the LC jacket actually being offered for sale, though I imagine Peter will sell anything you request. I never actually spoke to anyone there, but did all my direct contact via email. Anyway, I believe you're ok size wise regarding your coat. Regards. Michaelson
: Hey Michaelson, by any chance do you remember which lining was
: in which movie. I recall that there were two linings: cotton or silk,
: but I'm not sure which one was the one for Raiders. I asked for the
: Raiders lining and I got cotton. Silk is that slick, shiny stuff, right?
: Well, not that it matters- I'm totally happy with my jacket. And I
: should be getting my Wested certificate and business card in the mail
: any day now.
Dale, I think the silk lining was used in Raiders while the cotton
lining was used in ToD and LC. However I'm not quite sure about that.
I have cotton lining in mine and I'd say it's really better. Like
Michaelson already said silk is not that good when it's hot. Maybe
they changed the lining in ToD because it wasn't comfortable enough.
Btw, I recently contacted Mr. Botwright because I didn't recieve a
certificate with my jacket. Hope I'll get it soon...
