post #5701 of 5953
Hi guys, glad i found the forum. Lots of good advice.

Any thoughts on this coat? I think it could do with being taken in around the bottom for a slimmer fit?

Its by a Japanese designer named camoshita. It's an Excellent quality but expensive coat, so any tailoring I had done would need to be of good quality.

What do you guys think?

Don't take it in more. The silhouette already is slightly feminine, due to the curved lines.

I agree it doesn't need to be taken in anymore. Looks a little long in the body and a bit short in the sleeves. I like for my cuffs to end an inch or so below the wrist joint. But everyone is different. You only have to please yourself.

Should I size down? Or just take it in a little on the waist?

Its Bonobos Halifax

Looks good CP. Hope things are going well in AA. Need to make it back up there some day before it gets too late. Lots of good memories.

Although I am usually a purist and go for the exact reproductions of military garments, I decided to change course and go for a jacket made by the Japanese Americana company Pherrows. Its their take on the 1913 (13 star button) peacoat. It is a modern fitted coat with most details intact aside from the fact that it is black instead of navy and not 100% wool (shockers!). So far I'm really happy with it; the sleeves are short but I like my jackets like that. The coat is made of a wool blend with polyester and acryl and seems to keep me warm enough for the current winter weather. One other important change compared to the original is the shape of the collar. I didn't like the combination of the huge collar and my small grape head so when I saw this coat, I was delighted to see they made it with a substantially smaller collar.

anyway, enough talk, here are the pictures

Damn nice jacket mate, fit is spot on. How much did this set you back?

post #5714 of 5953
thanks; jacket was 42000 yen or about 420$

J crew jacket I got from a user off here a little while ago. What do you think of the fit? I've put on a fair bit of weight, and feels a little snug.
