I really like that piece too, but didn't see myself wearung enough to justify buying. I've tried on that blue moto down jacket and they definitely run tts too.
Their CS does suck.
I have the 3-piece suit: found it about a year ago (at which point it was already sold out everywhere) by getting in touch with Gant customer service where I live (Sweden), and the guy there actually contacted a bunch of their stores, had the ones who had pieces of the suit left mail them to the store in my city, and then I got it for half off. Pretty damn fine service! :-)
Bad news is that I got the wrong size jacket, or rather, the sizes run so damn small/tight so I should have gone up a size on the jacket. They are really short & the arms are really tight. I normally wear a size 40 (50 here), and should have gone up to 42 (52). I can still wear it: it looks about the same as in the pictures you see from campaigns, but it's just not very comfortable to wear a tweed jacket that tight. Plus, I'd like to be able to have a thicker sweater beneath it, you know?
Anyway, my point is: try getting in touch with Gant directly, if you haven't. And if you need a size 50 and happen to find a size 52, get in touch with me, and we'll trade. :-)
I'm 6' 2", and Rugger oxfords fit a bit past my natural waist, I'd say one or two inches past. If your extra 2 inches on me are apportioned totally towards your torso, then these might feel shortish on you -- but then again some people like that cropped look, see BoO. If your height comes mainly from your leg length, then you shouldn't have a problem. I refer to the Large in the Rugger Hugger fit, by the way.
