So how you like it? Apparently Eddie Bauer thinks all size L middle-aged men are also obese. Fit me like a sack around the waist. I almost decided to return it for a medium but then I decided to do some simple tailoring. I took out the sewing kit and brought in my jacket's waistband by about 4 inches, basically cinching up the elastic side panels, and now it looks great. It was falling way too low and now rides up more where a jacket like this should. Plus the cinching gives it that classic pouching at that bottom. Took about a half an hour.
