Carhartt® Sandstone Sierra Jacket for Men
AWESOME JACKET, Sadly poor experienec
I bought a jacket for my son, and intended to buy one for my husband once he picked the one that he liked, however, the photos on the site do not show some of the details that the jacket included, (or not very obvious in description).. The sleeves had gathers at the wrists like a childs jacket, I bought an x-lrg. because their stock in both color and sizes was so poor and limited, that not only could I NOT get his first choice? I couldn't get his 2nd choice in the color and size he wanted either. I decided to go one size larger to accomidate perhaps extra clothing underneath, and while I expected it to be a bit larger? It was like a blanket around him, and then it was short. I would think that an x-lrg. would take into account that the man wearing it may have a slightly larger build than a Large, (Perhaps a bit more length in the front to conceal an x-lrg tummy?) and that it would be taken into consideration while making the jacket. So, while the jacket nearly wrapped around him twice? The front did not even touch his waist band, and my son is a Large at best. I was quite honestly shocked that if he is a large, that even an extra large would not fit his torso, as he is NOT big and tall. The jacket, while wonderful in style, and construction, was a disaster, and much thought was placed into buying it. I had to return it. I also received it late, and it was a gift. They did assure me that I would be refunded the shipping fees, however? This really turned out to not be helpful, as I had to ship it back after all. I am out the shipping, and my son has no jacket. I was very saddened. These jackets are wonderfully thought out, and offer great protection in the elements, and look very attractive, I was very sad to know that I would not be able to find one from the company to fit my son. He isn't an odd size, The jackets are just oddly proportioned. The big and tall? Would have been like a dress on the poor guy. No happy medium. I worry now, that my next option? Will not be as nice a jacket, and that bums me out. I hope that you can find your size... And that if you go to the source like I did? That they have more of their own items to offer you. If you can't get it direct, where can you expect to find one? I haven't looked to see if and what they offer in the way of women's wear, I really would like one for myself! I love these jackets... It just sadly did not work out for my son...
