Abstract: A jacket or similar garment with fixed liner which inlcudes a sleeve configuration such that an opening exists in the fixed liner which provides access to the internal surface of the outer fabric without removal or alteration of the fixed liner. Preferably, this opening is created by an upper flap portion of the fixed liner which extends downwardly beyond and overlaps a lower flap portion, also part of the fixed liner. Side stitching in both the upper flap portion and the lower flap portion tends to reduce the likelihood of twisting and distortion of the fixed liner during use.
Abstract: A garment for use as either a short jacket or a long coat is provided with a circumferential lower extension portion that is detachable from the upper jacket portion. The lower extension portion may also be folded and secured to the inside back jacket panel, preventing unsightly bulkiness in the front and sides of the jacket when the extension portion is in a folded position and the garment is worn as a short jacket.
