: : : 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...

I agree with Max. I have owned silk lined coats before. They are WONDERFUL coats, but mainly up north for cool weather. Regards. Michaelson
