More like at least 2-3 sizes too big. I tried it on at Barneys and it fits like a tent, quite unflattering. A tailor might be able to do some magic.

My philosophy is that if it doesn't fit, leave alone
I've had tailors alter things but I'm never entirely happy with the results unless it's just something simple like sleeve shortening
If anybody is in the market for a size 46 (XS) yellow Everest/Antarctic Parka - Flannels in Cardiff have one discounted to around £1000. I was in Cardiff on business today and just happened to stop by.
If interested I would ring the store direct as it's not online because of the fur issue
I´m looking to buy the Aircraft Jacket with detachable vest and i am having problems choosing the correct size. I am 189cm tall and weigh 87 kg and almost always wear a Large in everything. According to Flannels a 52 correspond to a L but when I look at the measurement on Cabourns webpage it seems really big. The chest measurement is even bigger than my Barbour Beaufort which is very roomy on me.
This has gotten me a bit confused and im thinking of buying the 50.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Don't go buy Flannels' measurements. Go by Cabourn's or try Superdenim and see if they have it. I know they have the vest and the vest's measurements, though they may only be on one color's page.
It's a roomy jacket in the chest, but slims down to the waist pretty quickly. At least past versions have. That's the cut/look of the coat.
Run on size 50s this year. Mallorys for sure, but a lot if other styles as well.
