Peacoat fit advice

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi!

 

Today I received a peacoat in two sizes, which one fits me best in your opinion?

Right one is one size bigger. As you can see I'm wearing a shirt and a thin wool crew neck beneath. I don't intend to wear anything bulkier beneath.

I think sleeve length is better in the smaller fit otherwise they seem and feel pretty similar in my opinion.

 

Also what are the common buttoning rules? I button both top buttons and the middle one and leave the bottom unbuttoned.

I vote for the smaller one based on the pictures from the back.

Alright. I think it's a keeper unless someone can point out anything fundamentally wrong with it (I heard tailor costs on coats can be pricey). I will return the bigger sized one on monday unless someone can convince me not to :)

Here's the contrary view:

The shoulders on the smaller size don't fit you. It's creating divots on the sleeves. Furthermore, the waist looks a bit too tight. Because they're new I think you've still got a basting stitch keeping the vent closed. However, I expect that once you remove it, the back vent on the smaller size will flare out, because you can already see a bit of buckling right now.

This is not to say that the larger size is a perfect fit. It's your call obviously, but sometimes the answer may be neither.

Hmm, now I have no clue what to... :/

Now I'm thinking on keeping the big one but having the sleeves shortened. Does that sound like a good idea?

I like the bigger one. Also gives you some room to layer during colder weather.
