Great jacket, heavyweight as it says it the description. It’s very well made and sturdy, and a great price for this quality of product as usual from Bronson. Best recommendation I can give for this jacket is that I bought another..
Excellent coat, heavier than expected. With the lining, this is a very substantial jacket veering well into coat territory. Beautifully constructed and designed. Perhaps the sizing is the only thing to be critical about--I found the 42 to be Medium and the 40 too snug in the chest/shoulders (5'8 170 40 short/athletic build) I would say this is ideal for an early winter piece in a colder climate--even full on winter with a vest underneath.
Excellent jacket! Heavier than I expected and well made too!
I just happen to be a person who loves corduroy. This jacket puts me in a nostalgic mood, with its nice cutting, dark color, and warm feeling.
Great coat. Hope they make more colors.
Superb heavy jacket - like you are being hugged by a bear - the back pocket is extraordinary - cant wait until winter comes to wear this baby everywhere.
Love it. Great material and gives my outfits a good vintage look. Fit was perfect.
Great quality. Matte colored corduroy. A 38 fits like a J. Crew small. The collar is kind of awkward. Kinda pops up like the spitter dinosaur from Jurassic Park. I had to have it tailored to stay down. The sleeves seem a bit short. But, it’s a great coat and amazing quality.
The jacket is quite heavy (2.2kg for size 44), but it is awesome! The actual measurments correspond quite wel to ones specified on the site. Plenty of pockets is quite useful as well.
Awsome jacket most authentic piece of clothing i own I receive tons of complaints !!
Worh the price. Very cool piece
Extremely well made and that match the old time french hunting jacket. Fit absolutely true to European sizes.

An heavyweight jacket made to last. The size is perfect for a 42! The corduroy is great and so is the color. I do recommend.
Amazing piece! Turned out a little longer than in size chart (72cm instead of 70cm) which is better for me. The fabric is superb and heavyweight.
