        I was thrilled to open the Duluth package on it's arrival. I Absolutely Loved and have wanted an English Waxed Cotton Walking Jacket for such long time!!!! This had all the simple details I thought necessary; a rain placket w/ snaps, double quilted elbow patches, adjustable waist cinch(snaps), and although the double-headed zipper(a nice convenience) & shoulder epaulets(purely cosmetic) are not present, the styling looked so smart. Alas, I ultimately- and unfortunately- had to return my new "E.W.C" jacket due to the fit. I ordered an XL(the largest available), and even though the bodice was quite generous(almost too), the shoulders were too narrow, and sleeves were too short( approx. 2")... For those who are curious, I am 5' 9", 160lbs., & athletic/slim build...
        ---For Your Information--- only because it was an important deciding factor in My purchasing of this particular jacket: English made/cut clothing have always been true to a particular size/style, and suited me somewhat comfortably. So having misread the description for the "E.W.C".jacket's "Imported" as being made in England was disappointing---It was not---the jacket was made in China--- I just wanted the nexy buyer to be aware. Thank-you for allowing me the opportunity to save any one else the cost of return postage-

        • Wet weather

        It's my daily wear. I don't agree with the temp rating; better for above freezing.

        I haven't yet worn it in a down pour, but have no reason to doubt it being waterproof.

        Below freezing the sleeves feel cold if you aren't wearing long sleeves. It's not got any insulation, just cotton canvas. And being canvas, it feels heavy; but that also reflects the quality and durability of the canvas.

        The zipper is nice, easy to zip but if you don't zip it up expect to hear the zipper pulls clap against each other.

        Overall, I feel it's still worth the money. I would give it 4.5 if I could as the noisy zipper and the temp rating shouldn't take it down a whole point.

        Works great

        Pros

        • Easy to use
        • Waterproof

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Denim Jacket

          I got this for an old never-worn small-game field coat given to me by my grandfather. The canvas field coat was still water-repellent so I decided to try this on a Levis Denim Jacket instead and it works great. It takes some time to work it in to the jacket, but the effort is well worth it. I can now run my jacket arm under a faucet and the water just rolls off. To use I just melted the wax down a little by setting the tin in hot water. This makes it easier to spread into the fabric with my fingers. Every 5 minutes I would then have to re-heat the water to get the wax warm again. Worked great.
