I’m a Fisher & Baker fan. I knew the first time I laid my hands on their products that it would be a long relationship. I got the Kensington Shell a while back, and wear it A LOT…it was a very wet Winter here in Atlanta. I recently got the Chelsea Trench for a dressier version that I can wear to the office or out on the town.
Off the rack, I was surprised at how light, but structured the jacket is. By no means is it too heavy for late winter or early spring- it’s perfect when you need a windbreaker, but want to dress it up a bit. The jacket is breathable, but still waterproof. I haven’t had any issues with overheating or getting wet. It’s a cool fabric. The trench also has a removable hood. I’ve kept the hood on thus far, but plan on removing it now that monsoon season is over.
Lastly, I love the look. It’s a modern fit that wears really well, with higher armholes and sleeves that are just a touch longer most trenches. It’s a nice touch so the arms don’t pull up. From a sizing perspective, I wear a 40-42R and got a Medium. It fits great with a little room for a light sweater. The shade of blue is really great. It’s not navy, and it’s not royal…it’s somewhere in the middle. I’ve worn it with jeans, tan 5-pockets, and with grey wool trousers, and it worked in each situation. This is a dress shoes type of jacket, more business than it is casual. Given that it comes with a lifetime warranty, this luxury trench is a good investment.
