I wanted to love this set but there's definitely good and bad here. First off the good: the colour is amazing as is the weight. As some have commented, the brown and green are reversed but I have seen some that do have this variation (even some with the same colours of the 47/54). The weight is also good. The buttons are good as well. The snaps are also close to original and the sleeves are thankfully actually longer than original so they are wearable. Customer service is wonderful as well. I ordered pants two sizes up as some reviews recommended but still too small. Customer service was lovely and are sending me a new pair.
The bad: Perhaps I got a bunk jacket as the reviews have all been super positive. The sewing is very inconsistent. A lot of the main seams are very well done except the left hand side of the zipper. That was fraying straight out of the package and the zippers....well, they are awful. I certainly don't trust them to last as they feel like breaking with every zip. Also the top two snaps on the lobster tail are the only ones that actually work. The other two sets refuse to snap properly. Also several in the pockets and the front lobster tail attachment area are fraying as well. Also the underarm grommets are only three. My original jackets have four.
I'm giving four stars because the pants were wonderful despite the size and for the customer service. The jacket is nice, but could definitely be done way better.

I wanted to love this however there are several areas where I feel these could have been done better. The good: the colour is wonderful as is the weight. Very much spot on. As others have said, the brown and green are reversed, but I have seen original ones with this print as well(even some with darker colours of the 47/54). Customer service I'd spot on and as advised, ordered two sizes up on the pants. Still too small. Contacted WPG and returned the pair no prob.
The bad: I must have gotten a one off on the jacket. The sewing on mine is so inconsistent. Some parts are very well sewn, others are so mediocre. Also, only the top two snaps on the lobster tail work. The other two refuse to snap. The zippers are also terrible and the sewing on the left main zipper is also mediocre and is already fraying. I did a hot wash to shrink down to size and the brass grommets in the pockets have left rust stains around them. Not a big deal as one doesn't notice them as much. The other omission is the grommets in the underarms. My two original jackets have four under the arms, not three.
All in all, I'm giving four stars for the customer service and the pants, despite the size, where spot on. The jacket, I'm going to fix on my own, but who knows, perhaps like I said, got an off QC jacket.
