Hard to find fitting jackets

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm quite a slim person (30" waist and 32" chest) so most jackets and coats look boxy on me. At the moment I'm looking for a feather lined quilted jacket, the babout one might look good on me:

If you truly have a 32" chest and a 30" waist, nothing will ever fit you that isn't custom.

Why dont you let some tailor make a jacket for you.

It does seem a bit unlikely. I mean, I'm about as skinny as they come, but I still have a 4" drop - 33" chest and 29" waist. But he could have just measured incorrectly or something.

Anyway, the above posters are correct when they say custom-made clothing is the only option. I have to get all my shirts and jackets/suits made to measure, it is the only way to get ones that fit. Luckily I don't have much trouble buying trousers OTR though.

Please don't get me wrong on this but I have a friend that also have the same size as you. So what he does is that he is buying jackets on kid section. By the way, how tall are you? Because my friend is not that tall, so the jackets in kids section fit him well.

The label says "Drop: 7", but then the difference between the chest and waist measurements is 4.5", so I'm not really sure how they figure that the drop is 7.

The guy claims a 32" chest and you're worried about his drop? Smaller guys are going to have smaller drops. The same way bigger guys should have bigger ones.

Thanks for all your help, I'll ask some tailors if they could adjust a jacket that I buy from the shop. I'm 5'6.

Hi mate, i am 5'11 and my chest 37.5" with 28" waist. I have the same problems.
But for me small PRL and Lacoste slim fit dress shirts are perfect fit.
For OP try G-star jackets . G star also have Correct Line they do ok blazers , suits.They have nice slim cuts. But prepare to pay high retail for made in china clothing.
Or just buy PRL jackets and wear knit or sweater underneath to layer it up.
