Sport Jacket Fit

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I just picked this up at Banana for $80 on sale. I was about to buy this item at full price 2 weeks ago but did not want to spend $300 on BR. The size I tried before was a 38R, which fit great—but sadly this was the last one left and it was a 40S.

What do you guys think of the fit? to big? worth keeping? Sorry about the bathroom shot, I'm at the office alone. frown.gif



Thanks in advance!

Definitely too big in the body but that can easily be corrected cheaply. The shoulders seem to be a little big based on the movement of the jacket on your camera arm side (that ruffling looks off slightly) and the sleeves could be maybe a half inch shorter as well. But all of those are definitely fixable so pretty good value for the price.

There is no way you can tell from that picture if it is too big in the body. I think it is just as likely that it fits perfectly on the body.

Collar looks nice and snug to me -- that is a good sign. Shoulders also look spot on. I say it is a keeper.

Sleeves need to be shortened...

The fit looks great. No gapping in the collar, which is as good as it gets for a BR garment.

 

People should remember that BR stuff is fused, and so prone to looking a little boxy at the hips.

Thanks guys!

I kept the jacket and just dropped it to have the sleeves taken in a little bit. The body did fit good but I like to wear my jackets a little more fitted so I had it taken in a little. Excited to get this jacket back next week.

Happy New Years guys!
