Hmmn, guess if one typically wears 42R in suits, either a 2 or 3 could work with the Ring.

MoK, do you find your size 3 to be too big?

I think the 2 fits you well.

Not too big as a winter coat (I think the 3 was about right), but I'm wondering about sizing down for a shorter spring/summer jacket.

I take a generously cut 42R in suits, but typically go 44R.

@bry2000 I'm probably more typically a size 40 suite jacket. Maybe 41/42 in something with a slim cut.

Ok, I am a 42R in non-slim cuts. I take a L in most EG outerwear (except things like the Highland Parka) and jackets (but the L in the slim models like the Andover are too small). Do you think a 3 for me in Ring (winter weight)? Thanks!

Thanks FranksCowperwood. Your Ring looks and appears to fit great.

Nice, very nice.....Size looks right to me, good for wearing over heavy knits etc.

 

What's the weight of the wool like, been looking at the "Blanket" coat like it a lot but not sure on the weather/warmth factor.

 

Well done, enjoy

Thanks.

The Melton is not very heavy, but the opportunity for layering and the collar/hood likely mean it will serve well in colder weather.

How do you guys use the back button of the Ring Coat to fasten down the hood?  I can't remember how my coat came when it shipped to me new.

I kind of feel like the point of that one is to make the hood into more of a shawl collar.  Button the hood onto that, then fold it down one more time.  But given the little bit of structure my wool ring coat has at the back of the neck, I prefer just having mine as a hood bunched up.

I think you'd be okay with either, a 3 will be roomy, but they wear well slightly oversized. I'm a bit bigger than you (in EG outerwear/jackets I generally wear XL, but favour a looser fit than some - I wear the shopcoat in a L).

@StandardStrange had one black Ring coat in stock the other day when I stopped in (Standard and Strange Oakland)

Here are my Century Denim. I think they´re the 5p TH cut (the looser option). I chose it because of the rise and the top block, and then had it tapered a little from the knee down. The seamstress was very confused about the fabric.

post #133 of 235
That's a good fit.

The fabric is a bit of a puzzler, isn't it? smile.gif I actually expected it to be heavier, but I'm pleased with it as it turned out.

Just ran across this on the internet. I could be wrong, but is Drake wearing the ring coat, lol?
