The Eli Chore Coat is so close to perfect--the fit, the details, the way it performs in the rain or snow, the amazing pockets. What would make this jacket perfect in my opinion, is tweaking two things: changing the placement of the runner's thumbholes and lengthening the strip of velcro that allow you to tighten the jacket by the wrists . When I put my thumbs into the runner's thumbholes, it tugs oddly at the sleeves and feels very uncomfortable on the crease between my thumb and pointer finger. Also, if the velcro strap on the sleeve were a little longer, it would allow the fabric tab to lay flat rather than flop around when I'm not tightening it down to keep out the cold.
Huge props to Dovetail for creating flattering workwear that performs so well. I have purchased nearly every item in Dovetail's portfolio and look forward to seeing whatever they come up with next :)
