I want to get in on the Field Jacket pre-orders. I'd like my Field Jacket to fit a little bit looser than I wear my suits. Any advice on whether I should go with my typical 50 or size up to the 52? The difference in the shoulder width is only 1cm so I think I'd rather go for the bigger size and just bring in the waist if I it feels like it needs to be done (if that's even possible on this type of jacket).
I would stick with size 50 if I were you. That's what I did. The field jacket is designed to be worn over a size 50 jacket or substantial sweater. The size 52 will be way too large, particularly in the sleeves (which are already on the long side).
