Does it matter?
Perhaps a sideways manner of inquiring about who is no longer getting them; given that the sizing was a bit unusual, and the navy has sold through so quickly, I was hoping to keep tabs on who might still have one in stock later this spring, when the post-Corona budget is a bit more friendly.

@Anesthetist Here are a few bad quality pictures.  I am on a mandatory 14 day lockdown period in a hotel room in Norway prior to heading offshore to work.  Best I could do with the phone camera and lighting. 

Jacket is size large, layered with an IHTL 1501 also in large.  I am 5ft 11" and weigh 187 lbs.  Take XL in all my IH shirts.   
fit looks good to me. raglan sleeves seem to fit a bit differently, waist and sleeve length are good and it's not tight when zipped.
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them...
Well, I have others.

I don't think that we should comment on which retailers are doing what in the current situation, that is not our place. If we take some goods from one or several of them to ease the financial pressure on them when they are able to reopen, that is between us and them and in no way an indication of which retailers are more or less likely to succeed longer term. Highlighting which ones we are taking stock from here only serves to create speculation on that.

Thoughtful and respectable of you lot, per usual; I certainly understand this line of reasoning.

The creation of any such speculation was hardly my intention - I was simply interested in an updated list of retailers who might still have one, for the sake of my own personal consumption.

Tempted and considering the button upgrade. Two options exist, 1, send back the jacket to the crew in Gosport. 2, order the button and attach it myself. Has anyone done this? If I went to the effort of doing it, I’d appreciate thoughts and any tips on the type / weight and colour of the thread that would be used if it was done at IH. This could be the second button I’d ever attached, so option 1 looks increasingly likely.

We can send you some thread, even threaded onto a needle for you....If you can change a lightbulb (which I suspect you can), then sewing on a button is a breeze.....

Not in navy or black in the foreseeable future, though there are a few navy left in Japan.  What size do you need?

The measurements say M on this one, but I fear it will be a touch too small.  (My 'normal' IH size is XL; the Large is definitely too big/long.)

I was hoping, since the navy seemed to do well, they would be rerun and I could cross my fingers that the second run sizing might work out a little better for me.
