Some time later, I bit the bullet and ordered a coat and vest combination in olive green.
It’s made of heavy wool, 26oz. apparently, but this is much smoother than some of the other wool coats I have seen and used. The vest zips into the coat or can be zipped closed at the front. A loop at the neck line allows it to be buttoned into the coat there too.
Other than the vest there is no lining which I see as an advantage which I’ll talk about later.
One thing I may change is the buttons, they are plastic and although they are decent quality, I just think I would prefer some good wooden ones in their place.
The pockets are well thought out. On the jacket there are button down pockets for security with open pockets above for things you want easier access to.
Behind the bottom pockets there is a space you can slip your hands into to keep them warm, although these couldn’t really be
called pockets because they lack any sort of lip to stop things falling out.
