    Zip Up Varsity Jacket by Golden Bear is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great varsity Jacket As opposed to many of the viewers I found the jacket to be fairly true to size if you wear properly fitting clothing. I am a 38-40 in suits and the medium fits me great. My only complaint(albeit this is more of a style choice) is that the sleeves are a little bit akin to an old school varsity jacket.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket but.... The jacket looks great. The fit is a snug fit. Leather sleeves are soft and shiny. The zipper is kind of hard to attach together. The thing I didn’t like about the jacket is the knit collar is made out of 45% wool and 55% acrylic. This makes my neck itchy. This is a real bummer because the jacket is really nice. If the neck was not itchy, this jacket would be a 5 star rating. I will probably keep the jacket because of how good it looks regardless of the itchy neck collar and hopefully the itchiness goes away after some wear.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice looking and well constructed, but not warm I tried this jacket in Minnesota Fall weather (45-50 degrees or so) and it was not warm enough, and I had a sweater on underneath the coat. It is, however, well constructed and looks nice. The two pockets are a little small. And, there is no interior pocket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retro Look, Great Style I have a huge weakness for leather jackets as well as fine woolen clothing. In this jacket I get a taste of both in a throwback design that has an air of sophistication while still retaining its casual feel that allows it to be worn with jeans or corduroy. The quality of the materials is 1st class. However, be forewarned, this jacket RUNS SMALL. That’s not a criticism, it’s a fact that a buyer should take into account in ordering the jacket. For example, I wear a size 39 suit. I have a 33 inch waist. I typically wear a “medium”. Not the case with this jacket. I ordered a “Large” and it fits just fine but it would be snug if I wore a bulky sweater underneath. So I would advise that any buyer order at least one size higher than they normally wear.

    Asked by: Georgie
    The Zip Up Varsity Jacket by Golden Bear has a 'contemporary fit' meaning it fits closer to the body. Thank you for your question!
