Preface:
I am not an employed by Botach nor are they or ever have they provided me any compensation or benefit of any sort at all. I just happen to have ordered to things from them in the past and thus am on their e-mailing list. Generally I ignore their notifications but todays caught my eye bcause of the extreme price reduction on this item.
I figure professionals like Brucelee, Fuzz, and Jamz would appreciate this as well as civilians alike. Never mind the tactical features and all, the jacket is extremely low cost and with aid of a good tailor and another $20 in fees one could have a nicely fitted tailored jacket for under $50 (!).

/me runs out to check jacket size

That's a hell of a discount, but now I'm reconsidering... I can't really see what good the extra pockets are good for, and I already have a couple blazers

Jamz,

Don't sweat the extra pockets and crap as it's all inner liner stuff for James Bond types and tech geeks who
The exterior is standard suit jacket.

I sent this off to my father inlaw, three of my mentors, a neighbor, and my wifes sisters husband all noting the same thing. Buy this, go see a tailor and drop $20 on a good custom fitting, wait a week for cutting and reshaping, then boom...~$50 custom tailored jacket at what a jacket from Mens Warehouse would generally cost at their upper mid range of ~$170.

I would order one myself but as it is I have a closet full of suits that don't see too much action these days. Hell I wore a suit to a local book reading only because I felt like dressing up and have been going through tie withdrawals. :p

This is quite true... I'm suspicious of the quality of the garment though.. without seeing IRL, I dunno. Anyway, I'm out of money for the week till thursday.

I also have to buy: a couple of books, lunch and dinner wed, thurs and fri, $200 to apply for a local range next week, just bought a humidor, I need to buy some cigars to fill it, and ammo for the new .50. Gotta start cuttin back somewhere :) Oh yeah, and range time maybe this week at S&W. :)

Range time and dinner are on me, so that'll maybe help the budget a tad bit.
