Jacket heavier than expected. When one thinks of linen it is usually something lightweight and cool. This jacket is of a fairly coarse weave (think flour sack). I was surprised to find that the lining was a pale blue check rather than a colour similar to the jacket. I don't like that the binding on the hood seams is also blue and when the hood is in use the binding can be seen. One other downside is that although the description quotes "button adjustable cuffs" this is only achieved by moving the one button. I would expect two buttons on each cuff from the description. Given all the issues I am actually quite pleased with the jacket as it is weighty enough for cool spring and autumn days. It also has good deep pockets that will accommodate a purse and phone, no need to carry a bag when just our for a walk.
