I first purchased this jacket back in 2005, and it is still going strong. I am 5'7, 130 pounds, and originally bought a size small. It has a more jacket-like fit and is good with light layering underneath. However, I upgraded to a medium lately as the size small as a shorter fit--the front part hits just where my jeans start. Now that I moved to a cold weather place, I needed a slightly looser, longer fit for more layers. The medium also works well, and due to the good tailoring, does not look baggy or ill-fitting.
My minor grip is how wide the upper sleeves are--I think it is built for very muscular women.
