Bball jacket arrived...it's really nice, and slimmer than I'd expected. I had kinda expected it to be a little loose but it fits perfect and if it was any slimmer it'd probably be too small. Also, despite being thinner than last years version it's still pretty substantial.
yeah, it was partly due to how I was standing to take the pic ...it's definitely not too small and there's no pulling when my arms are at my side. Couldn't edit the pics other than that one at first so that's why I put that one up Edited by Meis - 7/16/12 at 5:28pm
I think the tightness as the waist is causing the pockets to do funny things. It doesn't look bad, but the next size up would likely have looked better.
yeah its a tiny bit snug in the waist but really not too bad in person (pockets don't flare like in the pic)... and me having my hand in my pocket is probably causing a good amount of the pulling. Also, the pulling at the last button before the ribbing / waist area is present in pretty much all the buttoned-up pics of the new bball
edit- it doesn't bother me enough that I'd sell it, plus next size up would be too big
I don't know man. This one looks pretty awesome. Perfect casual vibe. I don't want to shit on your jacket, it still looks good, and I'll probably have the same issue when I finally get to wear mine. But a month of blissful ignorance first.

Too small, grey would have been better with your hair. Skip B/S, sell directly to me.
lol, the troubling thing is - that's how the Bballs generally fit, and that most people are so busy trying to emulate Synthese that they don't realize he bought his used off B+S and it's always been a bit big for him, which is why he has a slightly slouchy fit that other people don't have. The other two guys who posted recently are very skinny. Meis' fit is fine, there are no worry areas there, like the p2p or the midsection. It wasn't adjustable in those dimensions anyway, so people are gonna end up with different fits towards the bottom as it's a tapered jacket.
