    Bison Varsity Jacket - 3/15/2014

    Very well made and nice looking jacket. I like it very much. I only have one criticism and this is of Orvis, not the jacket. Orvis said it is the standard generous Orvis fit. They lied. An normal Orvis size large fits me just a bit loose. I wear a size 44 jacket. I ordered this in a size large and it was pretty snug. I thought about shipping it back and getting an XL, but decided that the XL might be too large, If I find it in an Orvis store, I will try it on and see. Bottom line, if you are at the upper edge of a size in Orvis normal sizing, get the next size up.

    Good quality materials. Well made. First rate jacket in every respect. I really like it; and I have only one comment that could be construed as a negative. Although the description refers to the jacket as a standard generous Orvis cut, it is not. The standard Orvis size large fits me perfectly as does a size 44 jacket. This jacket, in a large was a bit tight. It did not fit like a standard Orvis Large. I thought about exchanging it for an d XL, but decided the XL would likely be a bit too big on my and I kept the Large.

    THE PERFECT BIRTHDAY PRESENT - 2/24/2014
    By: from Wyckoff, New Jersey

    My husband has been looking for a long time for a varsity jacket. He was so so impressed by the fact that it was made in the great USA. Well when we received it the leather on the sleeves was beyond our expectations. He loved the softness of the wool on the jacket. It is really hard to buy for him and this jacket was a true, true winner. He put it on when it came and has worn it every day since!

    I read the other reviews and ordered one size larger than I would normally. I'm 6'2" and 185 and ordered an XL. The fit is perfect as is the cut, the materials and the whole enchilada. This is a very nice garment, made with a combination of excellent materials throughout.

    Very High Quality - 12/14/2013
    By: from Las Vegas, NV

    This jacket is very high quality, and I've been very happy with it. I haven't had any issues with it being short as described in some of the other reviews. I'm 6'0" 180lbs and ordered a large and the length is adequate. However, I would say that the fit is more of a slim fit.

    Bummer!!! - 12/3/2013
    By: from West Branch, IA

    Yes, the jacket is high quality, no doubt about that. I ordered a medium and the proportions look right. However, I would say that it has a trim cut. I'm 5' 11 at 144 lbs., trim myself but the jacket is yet too trim. With a heavy shirt or sweater the fit is definitely tight. It looks best open. Also movement is constricted, not comfortable. Going up a size might do the trick. The problem is that the leather is not brown, more like dark smoke. Therefore the jacket is not as attractive, not striking like the picture. If it was I'd try a large. The dark leather ruins the effect so disappointed.

    varsity jacket - 11/21/2013
    By: from shropshire UK

    This jacket is a bomber style jacket. It is very well made with a good warm lining. Normally I take a large size in Orvis jackets but in this case I need the XL size.

    Alas. - 10/15/2013

    Overall quality very high, nice soft leather, heavy melton wool, quilted lining, superb workmanship. However... size "Large" turned out to be maybe a 38S, and the body was far too short relative to the sleeve length, not designed for standard human proportions. I sent it back, regretfully. If the proportions had been closer to normal I might have gone for a larger size.
