So this designer is using the phrase to describe things that appear to be simply "thrown there," but behind which there's thought and intention. Makes sense, allowing for a little bit of a poetic usage.

Greg, does that mean you normally would wear an XL shirt and would need to size up to XXL?
I'm normally an L, so wondering if the XL would work (I thought we were both a 42 jacket)...

I'm typically an L in the more relaxed fitting stuff, or an XL in the more fitted stuff.   I'm typically between 52 and 54 for tailored clothing.   The XL in that Niche shirt is just too tight for me.  I can button it but feel like a sausage - that's unfortunate because I really want one.

Damn, that doesn't help one bit. Haha. Well, guess the only way to know if it fits is to buy one. Looks like I'll be adding that to my order. You're not helping my savings plan for the holidays any. I need to be thinking about others! shog[1].gif

I'm going to disagree with @gdl203 here.  I think that some types of coats just look better fitted, and this is one of them.  Parkas, duffle coats, etc... I think can look really good a big oversized, but I like a single-breasted, quarter-length, coat, looks best the way it fits on you now.

 

I know that I'm the barbarian at the gates...

but I never said anything about oversized.  I wouldn't consider the next size up as oversized given what he is currently wearing under the coat, what he may add under the coat and the way it currently fits.

@mktitsworth  I bought and used a lot of hangers in my life and concluded a few years ago that the ones that offered great contoured support without also taking up an inordinate amount of space in my closet (love my fancy wooden ones but they just take too much space with their forward bent) are the heavy composite hangers that all the very high end Italian companies use.  Borrelli, Isaia, Kiton... all use that same hanger - because it's honestly awesome. They just order it in different colors (beige, grey, etc...).  So the hanger decision at NoMan was one of the easiest one - I knew exactly which hangers I wanted.

 

That was a long nerdy answer but tl;dr : it's a heavy plastic hanger that is also what populates my personal closet
