1. seems like a lot of jacket for the money!
I don't have a lot of experience with different clothing like Brian at STG does. What I can say is this seems like a wonderful jacket for me and my out of the box impressions are very good. At 5 11 and 44 inch chest and 36 inch waist, this jacket fits me as I think someone said "like a second skin". Shelve length is just right, I wear a 34 length dress shirt for reference. My overall impression is that this jacket is well made and the QC is very good. Honestly, I haven't seen any real detractors here. Well done RST.
If I had to have some cons about the jacket would be the liner is fixed, maybe that becomes a issue later, IDK. I'd also like to see more perforated leather. Lastly is the 8 logos I think RST really could/should have scaled that back to 4, shoulders, chest and upper back would have been plenty.
