My build is exact the same as you. I thought the small size chest meassure is 39", quite big though. Normally I would wear 36".

 

Also I used to have a Billy Reid "slim fit" shirt (it indicated so on the label), and it's still too baggy compared to other brands. 

I've never seen a rtw "slim-fit" shirt that was actually slim-fit. They all still fit like sacks.

Try the yokohama shirt by rag & bone

I own the FW2012 version of J.Crew's Bayswater pea coat with thinsulate and find it thick and kinda heavy. Is the NON-thinsulate version thinner and/or lighter?

Hey quick question how big is the difference  between a 38S and a 40S in vintage navy peacoats. I own a 38S, the lenghts are perfect, the sleeve is short by 0.5-1 inch, and the chest is a little tight, but thats because I am overweight and in the process of losing weight. Is the 40S only wider in the chest area or are the lengths substantially different aswell.

If you're losing weight, why would you still want to size up? Typically when sizing up in most clothing, the chest changes at least.

Valid point. Thanks.

This is what the 38S looks like, I am very pleased. Fits quite well. Sorry for the big bulky DSLR, my phone is broken and nexus 4 comes this weekend. Thanks

 

P.S the slight cloudiness is the mirror.

No wonder why you have high post in such a short period of time.

The lengths will be different, proportionately different but not substantially different. For the sleeves, about .5" and for the body, about .5" to 1.0" longer. If you need extra length in the sleeves, there is about an extra inch inside the cuff that can be let out. An extra piece of material may need to be sewn to the original material to give the extra length, but it is an easy job for a seamstress.

I should have almost 2,000 posts by now, but I'm all about quality-over-quantity.
