Poplar and Fields sweaters came in for me from other-shop.com/brands/stephan-schneider.html. I'm liking the use of angora in knits instead of mohair - less itchy, and softer. Fields sweater is exactly what I was looking for...a relaxed turtleneck sweater. I'm also happy that the sleeves are shorter this season on the sweaters.

Likewise: my Thinner bomber showed up today. It's dope.

How much can you shorten the sleeve on the SS Conversation coat, without compromising the adjustable button cuffs?

post #8180 of 8866

I had my memory coat sleeves shortened like 2" inches last year -- my guess for the conversation would be that depending on the lining in the sleeves, you can take in the sleeves pretty significantly also, because moving the button and cuff up or down and hemming the sleeve is fairly straightforward as opposed to the functional cuffs on many other schneider coats.

Thanks!  I'd rather not move the buttons if I don't have to.  I was mostly looking at this and wondering how far can you take it up before hitting that cuff closure.  Looks like about 1.5"?  

 

And is the Memory coat and the Conversation the same?  I know the model has changed to the "Conversation", but are the details & measurements the exact same?

 

 

 

Thanks again for any advice

Why would you not move the button?  The buttonhole is on a tab, so it's super easy to move it up (as opposed to a buttonhole on the sleeve).  

 

You can have the sleeves of the Conservation (that's the name of that coat btw) altered rather easily.

 

There are some differences between Conservation (left) and Memory (right), mostly the re-engineering of the knit liner, reducing bulk, different collar style when worn without hood, and pocket styles (reverting to the same low side-entry pockets as the original Merino

Thanks for the reply @gdl203.  I guess I was looking at it incorrectly, not realizing the button and tab were an easy move.   Great comparison photos, easy to see the changes side by side.

Hi,

 

I just learned about your forum and am hoping someone can kindly offer some sizing advice. 

 

I'd like to buy a Stephan Schneider "Conservation" coat. Aside from being undecided between the grey twill or rich burgundy, I am most uncertain about which size will best fit me. 

 

I am hopeful it will fit me more trimly than slouchily. More like the first picture below than the second. 

 

I stand 6'1" and weigh about 175 lbs, so I'm fairly slender and wear a size 40 or more often 38 in sports jackets - all the ones I have are 17 to 18 inches in the shoulders or 40 to 42 inches in the chest. 

 

Kyle at NMWA kindly replied to my email and suggested the size 5 will be spot on. I really don't want to go through a return if I can avoid it, and still have some doubts.

 

I wonder if the size 4 wouldn't fit better, because the size 5 as measured on NMWA is 124 cm (49 inches) in the chest, and 48 cm (almost 19 inches) in the shoulders.

 

This means the size 5 shoulders line up pretty closely with outerwear I already have, but the chest is substantially more than one of my coats that I already find too wide, at 119 cm (46.5 inches)

 

For those of you familiar with this coat, or anyone else similarly sized - will the 4 be too small? can I achieve the fit I'm looking for with the 5?

Go with V, the chest measurement is inflated by the lining, the coat will fit smaller.

post #8187 of 8866

Go for V if you're looking for a cool, draped, relaxed fit like your pics 1 & 2

 

Go for IV if you prefer an awkward, too lean, closer fit like your third pic

How do you measure for the chest measurement, btw? I always end up with a good few inches less compared to yours, on the same pieces. Are you doing something other than doubling the pit to pit measurement?
