Green Casentino Overcoat has been ordered. Thanks Greg for the sizing advice! I've been putting off investing in a legit overcoat for about two years and the recent Eidos releases finally put me over the edge

Everyone ordering the over coats is tempting me even more! Any idea on the length for the 46 Greg?

SB or DB?  DB Ulsters are longer than the SB overcoats

Sorry about that, considering the DB green Casentino overcoat.

Thanks! The Eidos 54 SC measurements suggest it would be slightly small for me, but that was the idea behind it, and it works.

107 cm / 42" from bottom of collar

Inglese twill and Calabrese cashmere...comfortable combo. The stripes make the light brown look grey in some lighting and photos, but it is very nice (and a great deal under $100).

Has anyone hemmed the length on say an Eidos jacket? If I crop it about an inch from the bottom, will that mess with the lapel arcs/angle of the quarters? (hope that made sense)

If you take it up and inch, I imagine the hip pockets would have to be moved...amongst other things.

An inch is extreme for shortening a jacket, would mess the balance up of a lot, including the pockets and make the buttoning point look funny I imagine.

You can shorten it from the top of the jacket and also the bottom to maintain some balance but its a much bigger job, competent tailor required though, not just a typical alterations person

Shouldaville, that combo is $$$.

I would avoid major surgery on any jacket. The best strategy is to find a garment that's a decent fit before alterations. Messing with the shoulders or the length is generally a recipe for unhappiness.
