S.E.H Kelly are wonderful, but I'm somewhat frustrated by the sizing.
I'm 5 feet 9 1/2 inches tall and I weigh 12.5 stone. Since I'm not from the UK, I can't try the clothes on personally.
The taller S.E.H Kelly model is taller and thinner than me, and the other one is only a bit shorter than me but weighs more than a bit less than me.
I really like the car coat, but which size would I buy - S or M? The model is taller and he's wearing S, but my shoulders are much closer to 18 1/2 than 17 1/2 inches. It seems to me that neither would really fit me. Should I buy the hood jacket instead? The shorter model is wearing size S, but I'm thinking about buying size M.
What do you think?
P.S. I'm planning on losing a few pounds, but I bought the S sized trousers (BTW I'm selling them, check out marketplace if you're interested!) and realized that I wouldn't be able to wear them even then (the waist!)... So yeah, I could go with something that would feel a little tight right now, but only if it's a little. On the other hand, I don't know whether me losing weight would help or just complicate things further - right now I'm leaning on the M side. Should I consider S instead? Are jackets and coats more forgiving than the trousers?
