I recently tailored the Bayswater peacoat from JCrew and I'm not completely satisfied. As for my body specs, I am 5'5, about 120 lb, 34S in chest, and 28 waist.
The first three photos were before they were tailored. I felt there was too much room even with layering, especially in the back. I also feel like the length was a bit too long but shortening it would put the last buttons too close to the end so I wasn't sure if I wanted to do it. The last two photos are after it got tailored. I had the waist brought in and slimmed the arms. Now it looks a bit too slim and looks like it flairs out at the end making it look feminine.
What do you guys think about the end result? How was it before the tailoring? After looking back at it now, I think I would have been better off leaving it as it was. I'm thinking of getting either another one of these and possibly leaving it as is or getting minimal alterations (tailor says the wool's too thick to do less than what was already done) or getting a sterlingwear. I'm a bit worried about that since I have quite the small stature and an "American" fit would probably be too large on me. If I do get another one of these, what alterations should I go for?
I'm about to pull the trigger on another bayswater peacoat. Can I get some opinion on whether it's better after being tailored or the original?
