Dude I was just gonna make a post about that lol. Sitting on long coat restricts movement like crazy doing shoulder checks etc or backing in, and if I don't then my coat is riding up and it feels weird.
Late to the party but I took a size 8 in the NMWA roughout bark vibergs and they fit amazingly. So perfect. Much better than 2030 for my slightly wider feet.
I wear 8.5E in ae 5, 8D/E in Barrie. You will be fine sizing down 0.5
^ Yeah I don't really conceptualize nanamica as cm at all. Most of their "cm" offerings like coats are a hybrid mix of patterns and styles. The soutien collared coat is maybe more conservative but still not as cm as something like mackintosh
I had the cruiser before - it's pretty boxy but generally really nice jacket. Would love to cop the herringbone one but can't find it anywhere anymore. Pretty bummed I missed out on the ebay auction from luxeswap a while ago
