Not just at the waist. It's big through the body, ie. chest but yes, they are especially roomy the waist. I think they would have to be taken a few inches to get them to where I wanted but short of that, I'm curious to see what a tailor could do to get them close. I'll be taking one to a respected tailor near me to get his thoughts on getting it to fit better w/ out rebuilding the whole jacket. It's been the only downside to losing weight.
