Men's Wool Barracuda Jacket
Collar sticks out
This jacket looks very nice on the model and is well-made, but the collar has two tabs that stick out obtrusively if you want to leave it unbuttoned. My husband was very disappointed that it didn't work out.

Plan to return - did not fit properly
Bought the jacket for my son for Christmas, he loved the style on paper but did not like the fit when he tried it on. Sleeves were too loose, big and should have had a tighter wrist band similar to what was on the waist.

Good looking jacket
This wool jacket has a finer look than the nylon shell squalls, and I can wear it to a meeting, for it looks almost like a sport jacket. My jacket is navy. It's warm, and it fits me well, large tall ? I am 6'8". Its stark simplicity is elegant. The right part of the collar tends to stay up rather than lie flat, but I think I can train it to not poke my neck.

I purchased this jacket for my husband, but ended up giving it to my brother instead. The collar was too 'stand-up' for my husband, and was scratchy on his neck. My brother liked the style, and will use it more often, as he travels to areas where this heavier jacket might be worn. I purchased a Stormer jacket from LE for my husband. It is lighter in weight and is more to my husband's liking. Overall, this jacket is very stylish and of excellent quality...typical of Land's End products.

Excellent Dressier Jacket!
I ordered two of these one in grey, one in black for Xmas gifts. When they arrived I had people other than who they were for try them on - the fit runs slightly large, which allows room for a heavy sweater and/or sweatshirt. The sleeves run a little long, but my husband does not have long arms - 32" shirt sleeve. However, the quality of the fabric, the lining, the price and the style are excellent! The lining in the sleeves is silky, so sweaters slide in easily, no tugging to get the arm through. I am now reordering two more for the guys who tried the first ones on, they each want one now. What a nice alternative to wear when going to church, lunch, dinner, etc. instead of the good old faithful down jacket. Gives a dressier appearance and definitely adds a plus to any outfit it is paired with. This jacket is a winner! I may have to have the sleeves shortened, but a small price to pay for such a great jacket.

Perfect Fall Weight Jacket
I bought this jacket for my husband, who is 6 ft. 1 in. and about 220 lbs. The XLT fits him perfectly with a turtleneck and chunky sweater underneath. This jacket is great! He wears it with jeans and sweatshirts on the weekend, and with slacks and sweaters during the week. When the temperature is in the 40s, 50s, or 60, this is his go to jacket. It is a wonderful jacket and looks great with everything.

This jacket is a great fit and perfect weight.
The jacket is a good looking jacket with a great fit. I would recommend it as a purchase or gift. I like it for every day wear.

Cuffs had button snaps. Should have had ribbed elastic cuffs. Collar was not sufficient - was difficult to lay over
Fit was fine. Medium tall is a difficult to find. Did not wear the coat for any occasion. Returned it after ordering.
