The fit of the Field Jacket should be perfect for my build (husky/athletic).
Even the sleeve length will be more suitable than some of their other jackets.
Slightly flared at the waist will be better than a tight (City Coat) fit for this purpose. It looks like a perfect Fall jacket; good for layering.
I would buy two colors if I could (so, navy for now).
A waxed version would be a nice addition to this new series.post #10070 of 105459/28/16 at 9:43ampost #10071 of 105459/28/16 at 9:48ampost #10072 of 105459/28/16 at 12:02pmpost #10073 of 105459/29/16 at 11:08ampost #10074 of 105459/29/16 at 9:53pmpost #10075 of 105459/30/16 at 12:22amQuote:

The L1 fit is perfect, except for one very important part... the sleeves. They're approaching 2" too long. Altering that leather won't be cheap. Hoping there's some kind of "molding" effect that may happen. There's really no good reason I can think of (other than accommodating those with longer arms, of course) why they shouldn't be 35".
The City Coat is much closer for me, only about 1" too long in the sleeves (given the style).
I imagine the field jacket material will stretch a little, but I am also so thankful for the 35" sleeve length. In this more outdoor, casual style, I'm not as concerned about slightly long sleeves.
"Get to know a good tailor," sure; but most people are so used to off the rack fitting. I'll say it again, Please offer custom tailoring. It may even bring in more customers. What's a few extra dollars, and an extra week or two wait, when you know it will fit, right?
For instance, I cuff selvedge denim, but am far from a 36" inseam. (I keep getting asked if there's a flood... LOL!) Thankfully, Detroit Denim is supposed to be good and not outrageously priced.post #10080 of 1054510/1/16 at 12:27amQuote:
At least it's an easier part of the jacket to get tailored.Quote:
We're (SF) not most people. Offering custom tailoring sounds like a headache to me.
