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