N° 5723 Tailored Men's Jacket - Wine
I have been buying amazing clothes from this brand for more eight years. They have never disappointed with the style and quality.
A stylish, lightweight summer jacket with quality sewing and with a classy lining and interior labelling. The colour is more a graphite with a nice blue check/stripe. The pockets are useful, the exterior pockets with flap covers are real (the pockets on my Gardeur jacket are fake, just flaps) and fairly deep, while there are two deepish interior pockets for phones or the like. There's a rather odd lapel badge which I couldn't make out in product images online, which turned out to be a blue bicycle! I have no idea what that's supposed to signify but I'll replace it with a lapel badge more appropriate to my history and lifestyle.
There's a big "but" with this jacket, and that is sizing. I normally take US XL in jackets (and shirts), and my old German sports jacket is a size 54. I purchased in XXXL and wished I'd bought 4XL. While the sleeve length is okay, it's difficult to do the buttons up. That's a reflection on my less than athletic body shape too.
I had an issue with selecting the appropriate size online. Using Chrome, I had some difficulty getting the size selector to work. It would "hang up" and when I thought I'd moved it from the middle and default position, Large, it hadn't moved. So I selected Large when I wanted 3XL. It took a series of frantic emails to get RT to change the order to 3XL before shipment. I should have carefully checked the order in the checkout, of course.
