I'm a 42L with 32 waist, 6'3, ~195 lb. The 52 ma-1 fits me well, but with limited range of motion in the shoulders. I don't think sizing up will help much. As others said, I think it has to do more with the construction of the jacket itself. That's just a hunch though. Besides, the shoulders on this jacket are pretty structured, so if you size up, it will look like you are wearing shoulder pads. You don't want that.

Getting your closet in order isn't about setting some arbitrary numerical ownership quota.

To wit: dress: - 2 suits: navy worsted 3-roll-2, medium gray (not charcoal) flannel two button (jackets and pants should work as separates) -2 pairs of slacks (light gray, tan) -1 pair of chinos -2 polos (dark and light, no...

Trying to make the best of this, because it is a very nice jacket for the price, just something I'd never wear casually Also, the pinstripes are very faint, do not contrast, and are more of a texture than a color, so it appears solid from a distance. The width of the lapels clashes with the width of your skinny tie. The button-stance is all...

What kind of collar, pockets, cuffs am I looking for here? Some collars for examples I've seen online are button down, some are not. I'm not good at these things, what's a safe bet? Button-down for sure. No pocket. Rounded cuff w/ one-button (not two).

The problem is that I have long arms and broad shoulders so I have a horrible time finding button down shirts that actually fit. I want a slim (not super tight fit) cut, can you recommend a style that might work? I like the navy/tartan, and I could have sworn I saw a picture of a black, white, and grape gingham shirt that you posted a...
