These jackets are cut short. I know that's the style and I like it.
I can't speak to historical accuracy, but from a general quality aspect, it's a top notch jacket. Very well put together. The inner wool liner is a bit scratchy, but that's the nature of wool lining.
I did cheat a bit and went with a modern application of velcro for the patches. I wanted to option of at least being able to remove the chevrons if I am out and about and want to be more subtle.
WW2 Impressions was out of gloves so I went with the ones offered by SM Wholesale USA. I had a question about their glove sizing and they responded back to me within one day. Ordering and shipping were likewise easy and fast.
The site lists them as horsehide so I was expecting fairly bulky/stiff gloves. These feel more like driving gloves than work gloves. I ordered the M/L and they also fit a bit snugger than I would have expected. Not uncomfortable, but again, more like driving gloves than work gloves.
The buckles hold well. The only disappointment is with the gussets. They aren't. Small quibble.
