I was wondering if anyone owns either the small or XS of the J Crew University Coat, especially the most recent version they offer. I was looking into buying one, as they look really nice for dress up or dress down. I have heard they run on the larger, fuller side and have read comments from owners of the coat (who were selling their coats on ebay) that their "smalls" fit like "mediums" (hence why they were selling... or so they claim) and I want to make sure before buying.
I have a 40 inch chest, am athletic, 31 waist. I don't like most of the wool coats I have owned in the past because they were baggy fitting (mostly all were mediums), even though at the time, I thought they looked fine; I am starting now to see how a more form fitting coat looks less sloppy and more gentlemanly. I still want to be able to fit a sweater underneath so I don't want it to fit too tight either.
Anyone out there with similar measurements? What size JCrew coat do you wear? Thanks!
PS- How does the slim fit differ from the regular fit?
Oh, and I can't find any store in Manhattan, that sells the damn coat so I can try it on! If anyone knows a store in NYC that sells them, please let me know! :)
