It retailed for $799 and i grabbed it on sale for less than $250 and it fits the best and is the most stylish to my eye when paired with other items from my wardrobe. anyway... the Sutherland actually fit great in Med. but i thought the hidden buttons looked strange and overall the styling wasn't very modern. jcrew catalog shots have burned me many times over the years. they'll pin the models or capture just the right angle that makes something look amazing but in person, many times i get a very different impression.
How long was the Sutherland Herringbone anyway? Was also too large, sort of like a bathrobe?

The sutherland looks to me like a very ordinary trenchcoat, that is, I don't see anything wrong with it or particularly extraordinary. Hidden buttons are pretty standard for a trench.

Just got the Mayfair topcoat. The fit is pretty damn good but I find the arms to be a bit full and in need of slimming. Does anyone else feel this way?

It's a top coat, there's supposed to be some room in the sleeves. You might want to fit a sweater or a sport coat under there.

You should see some of my vintage topcoats. They believed in giving a man some room for layering back then.

As long as your sleeves don't hang far down over your hands, you're ok.

I thought it was a bit long. Its amazing how short the model makes the coat look.

Guys have you had trouble with your jcrew t-shirts color fading after just a couple of washes? I wash mine in cold/soft water but had a couple of t-shirts fading quite a bit after just 1 wash!

M if you want to wear a suit inside.
One thing you might wanna take into account is the sleeve width. The sleeves may not be wide enough for a jacket underneath.

I know that topcoast sleeves are usually wider just so they can fit suits under it... problem is I've read that your suppose to buy your topcoat the same size as your suit... so does anyone have any hands on experience on that specific coat? thanks for helping man!
