@Watty
I waffle between L and XL, L in denim shirts, XL in UHFs.
I tried on the deck jacket, I would also prefer XL.

I'm XXL in most shirts work and western , some western have to go XXXL as some are just smaller.
Tried to XL in this length etc was fine but felt like a straight jacket around the upper chest , have the XXL coming today. Another really nice piece in the flesh that pics again hard to capture the subtle details of this beauty.

What is the weight of the cotton - 12oz, 14oz, 17oz, ??  An earlier post stated lighter than sateen, but exactly how heavy is that?  Thanks!

Also curious about this, in addition to the weight of the IHM-27 sateen.

I did buy the black version of this and am not disappointed in the least.  Still not sure of the weight, but I’d guess somewhere between 14-17 oz comparing to my denim & duck jacket & vest.  However, it is lined which adds to the weight.  This a great jacket IMO - glad I pulled the trigger.

The black was posted with slightly smaller dimensions than the olive.  I normally take a small in UHFs and found the size xs in this to be perfect - fitting comfortably over a UHF and still providing a slim fit, if that’s the look you’re going for - or can possibly size up to UHF size for a looser look.

A standard Ventile L24 fabric is 200gsm, which is almost 6 ounces.  Private White uses 250gsm Ventile for their rainwear, which is slightly over 7.

Waxed cottons for outerwear are usually between 6oz. on the lighter side (PWVC's current Twin Track), 8oz. towards the middle (3sixteen's Stadium jacket), 10oz. moving towards the heavier side (Corridor NYC's x Division Road's Martexin Army duck M-65), or 12oz. at the heaviest (PWVC x Division Road's Archive Twin Track in British Millerain).
 
So your guess is probably spot-on, assuming the waxed fabric Haraki-san chose is middle-of-the-road.
