post #34801 of 36457

I'm sorry to hijack this thread but I'm hoping for opinions on my Large SB NR Mixed Navy coat.

 

I've had a few inquiries on my B&S ad about buying my coat but

after reading all the effusive posts now about it, I am reconsidering selling and may pull my ad. It is a beautiful coat for sure. At first it was a question of use but the sizing is the question as well as the sleeves width...

 

I'm a 48 SC and medium shirt but after discussing with Greg I decided to size up to a large because I got the Arctic Liner and I'm not keen on close fit outerwear. There is adequate room for a SC if I need but with less on I wonder...

 

Thanks guys and I apologize again for usurping the thread.....

 

With liner:

(this is what the thread is for... you're not usurping it)

 

^I like the body, but I agree the sleeves look a bit wide and shoulders a touch big. Would you mind throwing on a SC and putting the jacket over it (if you're planning on wearing it that way)?

 

Edit: The fit definitely improves in the body with the liner. Looks like shoulders, too.

Any taller guys here have thoughts on the ts(s) quilted blazer?  Obviously it's a casual jacket, so I don't mind it being cropped a bit.  Just wasn't sure though how it fits on ~6'2".  I saw the pic of Greg wearing it--looked like sleeves might be a shade short?

Yeah sleeves are a little shorter than I would get a sport coat tailored at, but it's not something I give any importance to, for a more casual jacket like that. I'm 6'2" and I think that @Synthese is reasonably talk as well

Metranger, sleeves need to be a bit wide to accommodate the liner sleeves.

You pre-ordered a style that we are stocking this season, so if you think that you'd like the next size down, let us know and we'll exchange it for you.

Thanks wigglr for your thoughts. I think the Large might be good for the liner and SC's but too big for anything less. Maybe.

 

Greg, thanks for your offer and I'll email you about it so as to not clutter the board.

I'm surprised there wasn't enough interest from jump street.

Out of curiosity, would y'all say the cloth could stand up to being trousers, or solely jacketing?

He's definitely known best for that but he was also great as Chalky White.

Indeed. Exceptional as Omar, but an excellent actor across the board, and a seemingly nice fella from the few times I've come across him.

If I had to pick one piece of NWMA outerwear for each season it would be:
  • Spring: Valstar linen safari jacket
  • Summer: Niche shirt jacket
  • Fall: Valstar wool field jacket
  • Winter: Norwegian Rain single breasted with arctic liner

I'd probably sub Eidos FJ for the fall selection but that's potato potatho

Very interesting topic though and one we should revisit as 2-3 selections per season immediately come to mind

Jacketing

Well there were a lot of other good options presented. Always hard to choose.

I'd say the cloth could stand up to being trousers but they wouldn't be comfortable. Plus the pattern is really for jacketing IMO.

Another item I was torn putting on B&S was my Valstar linen safari jacket as I couldn't figure out how to wear it(I know, one sleeve at a time!). Also wearing it down here in S. Fl.'s fashion mecca, I couldn't figure out a way to subdue it.

 

I don't recall many folks talking about it or putting in the wild pics of it up. I'm curious how y'all wear them....

 

It got zero use for me but it is a great jacket. I went with my size, a 48, but it seems slightly big(body and shoulders) as I want to wear it with (T)shirts only. .

 

Did everyone take their normal size?
