I own one of these and it is without a doubt one of my favorite things to wear. I try to find excuses to wear it more. Heck, the guy who delivered my food last night even commented on it. That said, here are a couple considerations:
1. Its unlined. For better or for worse, its equivalent to a denim jacket, albeit with a nice tight weave that doesn't mind blocking some wind. But it might not be warm enough as the only coat you wear if there's snow around.
2. It's sized as pretty standard American workwear; i.e. slightly generously. I had to step down to a small with a 40ish chest.
3. Some of the finishing can be a bit rough around the eyelets and pockets, but I haven't noticed anything unravelling or compromising with regards to durability so far. But it won't be as highly polished as a fashion-purposed piece (although that's one of the things I love about it anyway).
