Italian Navy Surplus Work Jackets, 2 Pack, New is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hendre from European-style worker's jacket, simple and timelessI was not sure what to expect from these Italian work jackets, but am very pleased. Because I was concerned about sizing and have found in the past that some Italian items have run small for my large, wide-shouldered, build, I made sure to order 2XL.As noted in other reviews, the jackets are a deep navy blue flannel or moleskin, very soft and relatively supple and light weight--not rigid or stiff. The jackets I received are both marked size 58 and have a sizing guide on the label indicating chest size 84 to 124 in centimeters and height 164 -194 in centimeters -- similar to US size 46" to 48". I have been throwing these jackets on over other jackets and layers, sort of an over-jacket approach. Both were clean & appear unworn. One of them bears evidence of a press-on or adhesive tag or badge on the breast pocket. They are relatively light weight and provide a warm supplemental layer without being restrictive. In appearance they are very like French workers' jackets or even indigo Mao jackets, having one upper left side breast pocket and two roomy lower patch pockets. Unlike the French type jackets, however these jackets are a flannel-like material, instead of a heavy canvas or denim fabric.The jackets have a placket which conceals the three buttons. I suspect the jackets will both wear well and wash well. I ordered a large size, assuming some shrinkage during washing, since they are 100% cotton.Definitely pleased. A classic, highly utilitarian, well-constructed,jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 5657 from nice simple jacketThis jacket was pretty much what I was looking for, something durable but not too heavy to bridge the gap between a jacket and a heavy shirt. As a previous review noted, the material is a nice tightly woven moleskin with a soft flannel-like outer finish. I ordered size XL and both jackets are Euro size 54, which translates to about a 42.5 inch chest size, so I'd consider this closer to a large than an extra large. Utilitarian - they seem well constructed of good material but not finely detailed. Typical surplus down to the warehouse aroma. At least one of mine appears to be a bit irregular - the middle of the three buttons down the front (and the corresponding button hole) is positioned noticeably lower than center, while the middle button on the other is well centered. Overall a pretty good deal.
