Aphelion, if you don't plan on layering you may want to size down. Can't tell from the pics whether the shoulder seam is on point. Also, instead is shortening the sleeves consider just rolling them. The jacket's about being casual and rolling is definitely that.

And is it me or does that truman look a bit wide in the shoulders? the body length and chest look good though, shortening the sleeves will help tons on the overall look, great jacket!
So how come nobody posted their sample sale pickups? makes me think it was either amazing or just meah... havent seen much on b&s either, what gives?
Yes, iridescent twill material. Lovely in person, hard to capture in photo.

Jacket is actually really loose in person and I can zip up the body easily. Same to timpoblete's comment. It is a light jacket and I would ideally only wear with a shirt or tee. Shoulder seems actually fall off my shoulder granted a shirt and tee may cause subtle differences in fit due to pulling of the layers. The arm length is perfect, though, in the photo it is shown unbuttoned hence it falls weird, fanning open. I would not recommend anyone sizing up. Jacket fits .5 size large to 1 size roomier depending on your body shape.
I agree with the pants though I am steadily outgrowing them. I would prefer some alternative looser fitting navy trousers without the break, worn particularly with this jacket. It is hard to find this color navy though as usually it ends up looking like 'midnight'. The pants are Patrik Ervell summer jeans FWIW, past season, light and breathable for S/S weather. I intentionally had these cropped.
edit: FWIW, Bureau's measurements:
Size S 21 17.5 25 26
Chest / shoulder / sleeve / body length
These are the ideal measurements in general for me. 1 size up would be too loose and long, otherwise, EG not for my body type?
