Men's All-Climate Matka Silk Sportcoat
An old friend returns
I purchased an identical sports coat from Norm Thompson long ago (perhaps 20 years). Though I have a closet full of good clothes from top clothiers, the Norm Thompson Matka Silk Sportcoat was my favorite. I especially like to travel in it. It is lightweight and keeps its shape well. The size (44L) is true. I often wear the jacket with a tie on flights and I would bet that I've got a dozen upgrades as a result. After a long flight, I'll hang it in the hotel closet and the next morning it is wrinkle free. Finally, it gave out and I had to get rid of it (only after being told that repairs would be over $150 and it still would be worn in places). I'm tempted to get a backup, but my new one will probably outlast me. Thanks for making a great product and keeping it available.

Color was different
The color was much different from the photo. The photo looked basically shades of brown, but the actual coat has a lot of blues that were jarring to my eyes. Some people might like these bold colors but I didn't care for it. I wanted something like the photo. The fit (38S) and quality were fine. It was the color I wasn't expecting.

I was disappointed that the wrinkles did not hang out. Had to be dry cleaned before ever wearing. My husband travels a lot and wrinkling might prove programmatic.
