I decided to splurge and buy this jacket and I must say I'm happy I did it. Its made from a medium weight kind of sturdy material (VERY good quality), and it's lined with a navy floral rayon crepé, so it's not itchy or rough on the skin. The silhouette is true to the 1940 period, and the collar is stunning! My measurements are 36-27-36, and I went with a size 10. It fits perfectly nice, but be aware that the jacket sits exactly on your natural waist, and if you are busty I would size up (or it would sit too close to the breast area).
I already have another Americana Jacket and I love them both, they are perfect for the chilly German autum and not too chilly winter days. It's definitely recommendable to order based on your waist: I ordered a 10 instead of an 8 (which is usually my size) and it fits perfectly nice. I absolutely adore the large collar!
