This is the J. Crew Bayswater Peacoat. The first set of pics is the size XS. The sleeves and length are perfect imo. The problem is it's a little tight around the shoulders and chest. I'm thinking about getting the buttons moved over an inch to give a bit of space for me so I don't feel as constricted. Is this okay to do?



 



The second set of pics is the size S. The sleeves are too long and perhaps too wide? I'll definitely need to have the sleeves shortened. I also feel that body is not only boxy, but a bit too long. Am I wrong about this? The shoulders feel way better though. With the XS, I do feel a bit constricted but with the S, I feel like I can move around. How tight is a peacoat supposed to feel anyways?



 



I am wearing a button up and a sweater underneath both coats. Which coat would you take if you were me?



 



Thanks to all.

Hi I know how you feel about this situation. I would opt for the S > XS because in the XS you look like you're going to pop a button or something. Go with the S and get the arm length shorten instead. I think it'll be better in the long run.

Side Note: Yeah I like my jackets fitted (especially on the shoulders) on me but I don't want them to crush me (any my soul!! tongue.gif )when I button up you know? Hopefully this info helped.

I just bought this coat and need to get the sleeves shortened.  Can someone tell me where the sleeves should end and whether or not I need to worry about shrinking with dry cleaning?  The coat is 80% wool, 20% nylon.

 

Thanks!

I posted this in a separate thread, but saw that I should have posted it here. Is there any way to delete a thread??

 

I just bought some new slacks, but I'm having trouble deciding which of the 2 types to keep. Based on the image below, do the D1's or the Alphas fit me better? If you'd like to see a high resolution image please visit here.

Just me, or do jackets drape slightly longer when open and not buttoned/zipped up?

Quick question:

Does anyone know the difference between Uniqlo's "Slim Fit" and "Skinny Fit Tapered"? Is the "Slim Fit" comparable to the Levi's 511 fit and the "Skinny Fit Tapered" is the Levi's 510? Or is the "Slim Fit" the Levi's 514 and the "Skinny Fit Tapered" is a Levi's 511 fit. Here's the links for both fits through their website.

"Slim Fit"

"Skinny Fit Tapered"

Thanks in advance,

Not really sure what your question is? One is slim and one is skinny. Skinny is more tight fitting than slim if you didn't know.

Thanks in advance,

slim is like a slim-straight cut, were it fits slim throughout and doesn't have a massive taper below the knee

the skinny taper will fit more slim than the slim to begin with, and have a taper below the knee

Hello all-

I have a quick qustion: my chest measures 41".  When buying off-the-rack sport coats that come in two inch gradations, is it best to go one inch smaller, or one inch bigger?  42R looks good on me, I think, but the shoulders do generally stick out a bit.  40R feels a bit tight across the back.

Thanks.

depends on the suit. there is no one right answer. my instinct is go 40R because just going by the general population, people tend to buy bigger.

 

If you're really worried, a good tailor can fix the pulling at the back (and you should be taking all your sport coats to the tailor anyway).

Faded black and distressed brown is ok but strait black with brown not so much.
