It looks like a good fit, in the body length, sleeve length as well as the torso. I wouldn't change anything.
It has gotten down in the 30s here at night, but warmed to the low 50s today (Middle Tennessee). Not quite there for me. But I have a bunch of high end leather jackets that need the exercise.
If you want to add some length to the sleeves, there is usually extra material inside the cuff that can be let down for a longer sleeve. Take a look at it and see if there is extra material there. If so, take it to a tailor, or seamstress, and see what the professional opinion is. A seamstress is usually more reasonable in pricing for a job like this.
The length looks OK in the body, but the sleeves are shorter than I like. If you feel too constricted, don't wear a thick sweater.
Based on other reports I have received about Vintage Trends, you may be exactly right.
Looks to me as thought the sleeves have been shortened. The p2p as given by VT--21"-- would make this coat a size 40. Is that the true measurement of the p2p? I would think a size 36 would give you a good close fit. A size 38, with a p2p of 20+", which is standard for that size, would give a good fit as well.I would never trust the p2p measurement given by VT as they really don't know how to measure it. Send my measuring instructions and hope for the best. What they...
Expensive. They are fashion garments styled after the peacoat but not true peacats.
The first thing you need to do is to get an accurate measurement of your chest. My peacoat dating guide has a section on fitting toward the end. It also gives directions of the proper method of measuring the pit to pit that you can send to the seller. This takes a lot of the guess work out of buying online. The guide is linked to in my signature line.
If you are 155 lb., a size 42 is going to be waay big on you. For comparison, I am 6', 190 lb. with a well proportioned, athletic build, and a 42 regular is a good fit with a sweater. Without a sweater, a size 40 regular is a good fit. My chest measures 42".
I would certainly think so. All quality jackets and coats of this type are lined in the sleeves for easy entry and exit. If it is a real concern, I would send an email to customer service.
