Agree. Jacket can definitely be let out from the waist. Had the exact same problem with one of jackets. It was too tight at the waist and was tugging on the left vent, pulling it outwards. Letting the jacket out will resolve that.

Is this jacket simply too small/tight for me? It feels okay in the chest and shoulders, but I'm concerned it is too tight in the hips, which causes it to pull apart and show too much tie/belt.

I'm a 39" chest and this jacket is size 38. What do you think -- try size 40?



Nice fit. As I mentioned in a previous post, let out the jacket and that would resolve the additional suppression at the waist.

How do you like the extra slim fit BB shirt? Are the armholes high? That's one of the problems I'm having searching for shirts. Can't find any with the right armhole height.

Armholes are high enough for me. I'll try to post another pic with arms extended.
