"I just got my jacket... (insert perfect fit pic) I think the measurements are fucked up! I ordered a slim fitting jacket, but when I zip the jacket all the way up and then try to lift my hands above my head, like, you know, I mean when someday when I go to reach for something on a really high shelf, the jacket body moves up too...

For the time that we are mortals, we will just have to unbutton our jackets if we want high armholes and plan to reach for high shelves.
If people don't understand that idea, then size up.
It's funny how uncomfortable we're willing to be in the search for the proper fitting jeans, but we're far less flexible regarding the fit of our jackets. Teger man, just give it a test spin for a few weeks, maybe a month. See if you find yourself more comfortable in it. It will hardly (if at all) depreciate its resale value on B&S.
