size down one and it should fit your perfectly

I think it looks fine except for the sleeves. Its a bulky type of fabric so its gonna have that fuller look. Also the slim pants probably don't help your silhouette.

thanks for the advice, the shoulders are hanging off me and the pic doesn't really show how big it is around the body and at the back, i have already returned it. i'll definitely try a size down if i can find one (or if anybody has one to sell..smile.gif)

For reference, medium fit perfect for SS12 in the Andover, Baker and Bedford.

I had the sleeves half an inch shortened and also the hems tightened on my herringbone truman at my tailor. Chest is a little bit too tight, but I also have a large chest compared to my length. Also I'd rather see the jacket an inch shorter so that shirts would be visible from behind, now they're not. I'm 175 cm tall and I bought a size small.

Just wanted to let you guys know If anyone of you is looking for a Rounded collar navy polka dot shirt (small) or 19th cent. navy floral shirt (small) and can't find any then Inventory soon will get them in return from me since I changed them for medium size.

OK, piicked up the navy Bedford in Navy Whipcord, and want grab the matching USN pant... problem is, NO ONE has a 34 in the pant. I've found a 32 and 36, and I'm wondering if any experts here have any opinions on sizing down trouser a whole size. The USN pant doesn't seem to have a ton of seam allowance, so I think it's probably best to get the 36's and take 'em in, than get the 32's and try and let 'em out, right?

Help!

get 36 and get them nipped and tapered if needed

I'm just a little worried that they'll come out looking a little weird if I have to take them down a whole size... like, back pockets too close together or something. Anyway, anyone know what that might cost?

a good tailor shouldn't have a problem with alterations

The Bureau looks to have a 34 in the navy USN pants. Remember to factor in the 20% off too. I have them....great pants.

so true, i've taken aim and missed every time...
this year i desperately wanted this style...


i gotta lot of respect for the devotees who had the foresight to buy their winter truman jackets in august...

i had bought what seemed like the last small baker herringbone in north america, but it enveloped me just like robinsongreen68's...
it was like 20.5 in the chest 18.5 shoulders and the sleeves went to my knuckles...
sleeves can be tailored, the chest can be negotiable, but the shoulders absolutely have to be right.

Can anyone comment on Shawl Collar Jacket sizing?
post #868 of 1411

I also have this problem sometimes. Im an S but i find the S a bit tight around the shoulders. When I go to  M its too baggy.

 

I too find the japanese styling photos to be a bit 'hipster' looking sometimes aswell.

Its interesting how this works for some and not for others. Granted EG sizing is all over the map from season to season and garment to garment. I consistently wear size M in their shirts but need to size up in the jackets. I'm 6'2'' and 180lbs for reference. However, last year I had to size down in the chalk stripe Landsdown because the L fit like an outerwear piece and not a sport coat; in M it might be a hair short which I don't mind, because it looks better with jeans but is otherwise perfect. If you plan to wear them primarily with jeans or other types of casual pants going TTS is OK because they tend to stretch in the shoulders some with repeat wear . If you're going for a more rugged trad look where you intend to wear them with trousers than a little bigger fit is OK.
