Love the J97
I've owned 2 of these and about to purchase a 3rd. I get about 6 years out of them so a well constructed jacket. FYI guys the jacket is a bit short but I believe that is intended. Hits me right at the belt line. The sleeves run short too. I'm 6'2" and have to get a large Tall. Fits perfect but I don't typically wear a tall size. Edges wear a bit faster than the jacket as a whole...it seems they don't take well to a washing machine so I only wash it when I really need to.

I bought the tall so it would sit below the waist and it barely makes my waist, other than that I love the jacket.

Medium tall sizes please!
Great jacket, but the sleeves and length were too short. Wish you made these in medium tall, I ended up returning this jacket for a duck detroit in medium tall which fits great.

Way too short
The length of this jacket is comical. I am 6'2" 230 and ordered an XL. The arm length was perfect, as was the fit around the body (a little loose, which is what I expected). However, the bottom of the jacket only came down to my belly button (like 1.5" above my pants line). My wife burst into laughter when I tried it on. I should have taken a picture, but didn't think to before I sent it back. I debated ordering a new one in a tall size, but the XL arm length was already perfect. An L tall would not have fit as well around the body I don't think. So, I decided to just go with a different style altogether, which was a bummer because I like the way this one looks.

Is it tighter / slimmer fit that Detroit jacket?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This will have the same fit as the J001
If you’re gonna discontinue this style, will there be a replacement for the J97? Thanks.
A shopper on Mar 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not have a direct replacement for the J97, but we will continue producing the Detroit Jacket which features a 12-ounce cotton duck shell and blanket lining within the body which is the most similar style.
Discontinuing this jacket seems like a pretty bad idea. It's a classic: stylish and great looking whereas every other jacket you make is utterly hideous and I wouldn't be caught dead in any of them. Hope you reconsider?
michael m on Mar 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We apologize that the style you are interested in has been discontinued. Typically when we discontinue an item, size or color it is due to lack of sales. Although an item may sell well in one region, if it does not do well nationwide we are forced to discontinue that item.

A shopper on Jan 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not expect any additional colors in the near future.

Does the blanket lining go all the way down the sleeves as well?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No; the sleeves have a quilted-nylon lining.

Could I weld without getting burned in this jacket. Could it withstand the sparks?
A shopper on Oct 20, 2018

what is armpit to armpit length on medium/large size? any difference in sizing between j001 and j97?
A shopper on Mar 29, 2018
Sandstone Blanket-Lined Detroit Jacket
Sandstone Blanket-Lined Detroit Jacket
Duck Detroit Blanket-Lined Jacket
Duck Detroit Blanket-Lined Jacket
BEST ANSWER: We would measure across the shoulders, seam to seam (which is roughly armpit to armpit). In the J97 in medium, it measures about 19 1/2" and in the J97 in large, it measures about 20 1/2."

The J001 is cut slightly larger overall. The across shoulder, seam to seam measurement is about 20" in a medium J001, and about 21" in a large.
What is sleeve length on 2x and 2x tall?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2018

A shopper on Feb 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A medium is about 4" bigger in the chest, 4" bigger around the bottom opening, about 1" longer, and a bit more than an inch longer in the sleeve length.
Would there be a reason that the ends of the sleeves would completely fray and wear out. Love the coat , but not the cuffs?
Bill L on Jan 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We are sorry to hear about the issue you are experiencing with your cuffs. We are happy to look into this further. Please feel free to contact us for further assistance.
Will this style ever be carried in the "Carhartt Brown" color or "Frontier Brown"? The lack of those color options is the only thing keeping me from purchasing this style.

BEST ANSWER: Not in the near future, but we'll be glad to share your input with Product Design.

What is the length of the 3x and 2x regular? shoulder to waist? also the width of the jacket at chest and waist please?
brian on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The center back length for the 2XL Regular is 26 1/2 inches and for the 3XL Regular it is 27 1/2 inches. The chest measurement (at the armhole with bi-swing open) for the 2XL Regular is 62 inches and for the 3XL is 66 inches. The sweep (or waist) measurement is 54 inches for the 2XL Regular and 58 inches for the 3XL Regular.
Will this jacket ever be carried in "Carhartt Brown" or at the very least "Frontier Brown"? I would be very happy if either one of those colors were carried in this style. It seems that almost every other typical Carhartt color is available for this jacket except for those.
A shopper on Dec 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not at this time. We have forwarded this as a suggestion to our product design team.
Can y'all please carry this style in "Carhartt Brown" or "Frontier Brown" once again? It would be like Matthew McConaughey's in the movie Interstellar. The Carhartt chest patch on this one is brown and the jacket is broken in unlike the J001 style. Y'all would sell so many that Carhartt would be trying to give me a job.
A shopper on Dec 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We have forwarded your comments to our product design team as a suggest to bring back the Carhartt Brown color for this style.
Is the lining removable? Can you please offer this style of jacket in a summer version? Texas would be too hot for this, unfortunately.
A shopper on Dec 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The lining is not removable. We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
