Does this jacket take a liner?

I don’t believe so based purely on the fact that it is not mentioned in the description.

Yeah, doesn’t look like it. But it’s great to see IH is making jackets in giganto sizes that might fit me! Thank you!!

Nope. 

H once told me he was going to offer an optional liner.  I said, 'and what the fuck are you going to to do with all the liners that no one decided they wanted, but we have made,  at the end of the season?'

He gave me a sage look and said "no optional liners"......

Just got mine in the mail today...such a great jacket.  I have 2 questions about the jacket if anybody can answer.  1.  Why is the zipper on the L side as opposed to the usual R side?  2.  There are button holes on both sides of the collar but no button.  Is this just a design thing or am I missing something?

1. Right handed zippers are only usual on American made items. The rest of the world tends to go left. This jacket was made in Japan.

2.  There is a reason for this but I can’t exactly remember what. Attaching a hood perhaps? Something like that... EDIT: After a bit of research,  I believe they are a feature of the original mil-spec design and used for attaching a winter hood.

I didn't know that about zippers- those silly Americans!  I double checked my N1 Deck Jacket and lo and behold its on the left as well.

I’ve read lots of explanations for this in the past. They tend to focus on the idea of having servants to dress you which would have been normal in the UK and the British Empire, but not in the USA.

The argument goes that the servants would do the buttoning and zipping with their right hand while facing the person they were clothing. It would therefore be on the left from the perspective of the wearer. This would have spread throughout the world as a standard because of the dominance of the British textile industry, and British colonial and post-colonial influence. The USA didn’t have the same societal structure as the U.K., was resistant to British colonial norms after 1776, and made its own clothing, so went the other way.

Interestingly a lot of American made women’s coats and jackets zip to the left still. The same explanation is used, it being more likely for a woman to have “help” from servants or their husbands.

I have no idea how accurate an explanation any of that is. It seems plausible while still having a lot of logical holes in it. The fact remains most coats and jackets designed for men and the US market zip on the right, but the left is normal everywhere else.

Love that.  Even if it is not accurate, it will forever be part of my version of the truth....

I have heard that as well, @neph93. I can confirm your unconfirmed explanation.
