You all have provided some great, honest advice. Thank you all.   I'm going to return both topcoats today.
HERE is a great explanation of why I have divots (indentations) in the shoulder of my topcoats. It has nothing to do with the width (or bulk) of the shoulder pads:  
Here are pics of the sizes 40R and 38R topcoats, with and without suit jackets on.

 That's what I'm struggling with quite honestly at the moment. It does seem impractical to get the same model topcoat in 2 sizes....
  My topcoat may not be a Chesterfield technically, but it's similar in style somewhat.   So your advice is to get two coats then, in a sense, right? One for wearing with a suit on, one for not.
  Thanks! Normally, I'd do the same. I'm just really liking how this topcoat looks with a button down shirt without a suit jacket on, as well as how it looks with a suit jacket on too.
  Thanks you for your comment.   Anyone else?
Hi all. Here's my question - Have any of you bought TWO topcoats / overcoats in the same model but DIFFERENT sizes? If yes, are we being a bit impractical? I wear a 38R suit, so I needed a 40R topcoat in this slim fit topcoat model to fit perfectly when wearing a suit jacket. However, this topcoat looks great in casual settings too, but the 40R topcoat doesn't fit as nicely (looks a little full cut) without a suit jacket on. But a 38R topcoat fits perfectly when NO...
