I really wanted to like this jacket but unfortunately when I tried it on I immediately realised it doesn't look good on me, and I'm pretty sure I will end up returning it. First of all it comes up a little short compared to other bomber jackets I own - it barely covers the waist band of my jeans and rides up at the back. The length may not have been an issue on its own, but the padding adds bulk to my torso and has the effect of making me look shorter and much broader than I am (UK size 8 and 5'6" tall). I'm middle aged and I suspect this kind of jacket is aimed at somebody much younger. I didn't spot the striped ribbon detail when I ordered, and although that's currently on trend I feel it makes the jacket less versatile. I think it rules it out for 'smart' wear and really only confines it to casual or leisure use.
