I suggest that you live with the coat in its existing condition for a while, then decide on any tailoring - time and usage will tell you the right thing to do, and no, it's not weird to want to leave a garment's proportions as they were designed, however that fits (or not) with current fashion.

It's very cold here in NYC today - have brought out all the cold-weather clothes.

Suit - BBGF
Shirt - Hilditch & Key
Tie - BB
Cufflinks - Boston Museum of Fine Arts
PS - Ashear
Boots - Paul Stuart
Overcoat - BB
Scarf - Fortnum & Mason
Hat - Seifter Associates

 I don't really understand what you mean by "shtick" as you are using it here.    Regardless, creativity should only follow once the essentials are fully understood and mastered. That is one thing this forum is very very good at it.

For the sake of asking, do you feel that wearing clothes that don't fit is a sign of creativity?

Thanks for all the thumbs gents. Dressed as warm as possible today, including shearling lined boots which are all salted up.

I always liked those older Brooks Polo coats and I regret not picking one up a couple years ago. The new ones are laughably short and not worthy of the name. Another superb look, @upr_crust!

I was discussing that point with my MTM man at BB, and he said that Martin Greenfield probably still has the patterns for the old BBGF camel's hair polo coats, if you wanted to engage him in making them for you custom, and yes, the new ones are too short. As it was, I snatched mine on a December 26th sale several years ago - a decision I have never regretted.
