Authentic Style (2017-05-14)
I love these jackets and also have the khaki drill model. In particular the traditional construction sets them apart. Authentic features such as the back centre pleat, rear seamed inset sleeves, to the bellows pockets, set these apart from modern imitations.
As per other customers, the one criticism is the belt. The decision to go with a prongless buckle is a good one; pass the buckle end of the belt through the buckle and button it to the back of the keeper and you have an adjustable belt for buckling or tying. The new buckle is flimsy pressed metal and necessitates a narrower 40mm belt width Vs the traditional 45mm (1 3/4"). As per previous reviewer I bought a replacement from

Good honest repro (2016-01-01)
This jacket has the usual excellent quality material and construction that I have come to expect from WPG.

The sizing is good, I'm a 38" chest and the 38 fits very well. You should note that these jackets are cut quite straight so if you are of a fuller figure i.e. your waist is wider than your chest you may need a bigger size!

The arms are a smidgen short but not so as to present a problem.

The belt is cut very long - I have about 6" between the last holes and where I need them to be! - but can be altered by moving the buckle without too much inconvenience. The buckle is not of great quality but is OK though you may need the file the prongs a bit to avoid catching yourself.

Over all a very good buy.
