Fit on tweed sports jacket

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,


I'm here again asking your advice on the fit of this jacket. Would you say it's an acceptable fit?

I know it's a casual jacket so fit doesn't have to be perfect but I wanted to check first so it's not completely bad. I can still return it if needed.


I think shortening the sleeves to show some cuff would be a good idea maybe?

Perhaps tighten it slightly in the waist?

The jacket looks okay.  It's a bit large in some areas, but not by a lot (probably 1.2 to a full size, judging solely from the amount of excess through the upper back, and it's much easier to take in a jacket than to let it out.

It looks quite good, particularly if - like me - you prefer a more traditional fit, rather than a slimmer, more modern fit.

Other than perhaps very slightly shortening the sleeves (an extremely simple and inexpensive alteration), I'd say you're good to go.

I wouldn't tighten the waist.

I don't care for how it looks with blue jeans, but that's a matter having nothing to do with the fit of the jacket.

Hi, thanks for your comments.

I'm planning on having a tailor shorten the arms since I like to show some cuff. While I'm having it altered, would it be a good idea to have it slightly taken in at the chest or back?
