anyhow, going to try a brooks brothers 36s and jcrew 36s now. if those fail for some weird reason, it's time to throw in the towel! must be my weirdly proportioned asian figure that is making it tough on me here.

Why would you buy a 36R if you're 5'8. 36s should fit you fine since chest measurements will be the same as the 36R.

because this whole coat sizing thing is new to me . anyhow, i got my brooks bros and jcrew 36s coats. the styles are a bit different, but i think i may want to keep one of the two (not both!). which do you guys think are better: A or B (guess which one is brooks bros and which one is jcrew )? or do you guys think both suck? i wore a white shirt for contrasting purposes to see the coat clearer. be blunt. thank you. COAT A: COAT B:

Coat B!

Definitely B.

I would say B as well. It shows the lines of your body better. A and C are shapeless.

They're both gaping around the collar quite badly, but B has a much more pleasing shape in the body. I also don't much like the shiny-looking fabric of A.

Coat B.

Brooks must be B.

Coat B. Go for that.

Is B that Brooks Fitzgerald charcoal? I really wish they would, as the review on the page says, have one with a bit more contrast between the two colours of thread.

That's strange. Never seen BB place their button that high.

so i tried them on again and i agree... B looks better now. i guess i was more captivated by the shininess of the coat up close, but overall it looks better and forms a better shape around me.

i've made my choice with the jcrew one. thanks all... currently most expensive piece of wardrobe i have now!
