    That's a great fit for you. I don't like your choice of pants and footwear with it though. I think the texture and color would be a lot more attractive with either jeans or some different boots. Too much brown.

    Mine definitely needs tailoring. Do you think it's doable, or is just too big and I should give it up?

    Caveat, I don't think that looks bad at all, especially from the back. It's fine in the shoulders, and just a little chest (or waist I cannot really tell from your photo) suppression would make a great fit. Cheap alteration, go for it.

    And to answer your question, yes I moved into a house, down off SoCo. Good attention to detail!

    I don't think it looks bad, caveat. Just button it and decide if the amount of room in the jacket works for you. I think a semi-relaxed fit on this jacket is good, anyway. The one problem with altering is that you pretty much have to give up on the liner fitting in again, unless you alter that as well.

    The 3 owners of Apolis Activism were interviewed on Fox News' lunch time program yesterday. They talked about how they are active in each of their factories spread across 5 countries, and about some of the humanitarian work they are doing. It was a pretty short interview, but sort of cool they were even on the show the begin with.

    Thanks guys. I'll probably get the liner altered as well just so I'll have the option.

    Looks great, zissou. I almost nabbed one during the context sale, in the end the epaulets put me off.

    Caveat - I think that jacket looks great as-is.

    Thanks. The shoulders falling off like that don't bother anyone?

    I was in the same boat. I've never been able to stomach epaulets.

    I don't like the baggy fit either. It definitely looks too big in both the shoulders and chest. You actually might be able to wear a small, maybe try posting a trade thread in the B&S. Either way, I don't see why a good tailor wouldn't be able to make it fit perfectly.

    I just picked up the Apolis Activism Wax navy bomber jacket. My favourite jacket to date. Big thanks to Shea at Apolis.

    Caveat,
    I have a similar fit on my Apolis USMC jacket in a size medium. Question: Does it seem a bit snug when you raise your arms out in front of you? I'm trying to get a sense of whether a medium is just too small, or if it is the cut of the coat. The cuffs and length seem right, but it just tightens up in the chest on me a bit. I don't know if it is a peculiarity of that liner and waxed canvas, or me. Just wondering if you had a similar experience.

    Thanks

    The fabric is very constricting. Taking out the liner helps a lot. Actually, I don't know if I can wear it with the liner unless I'm just sitting around somewhere. So yeah, it's probably not just the fit.
