"This coat - in red - was a gift from my parents. I barbecue, smoke and grill A LOT. Chest pocket is great for all kinds of stuff beyond holding headphones (although certainly good for that), like keeping menu/ cooking notes on hand. The sleeve pocket has the ubiquitous thermometer pocket, but the additional zipper storage is great for small stuff needed on hand.
The color has remained colorfast, and the material has held up well.
Easy to wear fully buttoned for a more formal effect, or open at the top, for in the kitchen. Buttons are firmly sewn on.
...would love to see one interior button to hold the double breast placket in place a bit better."
