    Hi guys, glad i found the forum. Lots of good advice.

    Any thoughts on this coat? I think it could do with being taken in around the bottom for a slimmer fit?

    Its by a Japanese designer named camoshita. It's an Excellent quality but expensive coat, so any tailoring I had done would need to be of good quality.

    What do you guys think?

    Don't take it in more. The silhouette already is slightly feminine, due to the curved lines.

    I agree it doesn't need to be taken in anymore. Looks a little long in the body and a bit short in the sleeves. I like for my cuffs to end an inch or so below the wrist joint. But everyone is different. You only have to please yourself.

    Should I size down? Or just take it in a little on the waist?

    J crew jacket I got from a user off here a little while ago. What do you think of the fit? I've put on a fair bit of weight, and feels a little snug. [​IMG]

    Wow. You sure have. Better start laying off the pizzas, dude.

    Nah, just kidding. The fit looks fine, in my opinion.

    Gotta say, I effing LOVE my kersey wool peacoat. Does anyone know of any other brands using this material nowadays? It's as soft as cashmere, yet strong and durable as 100% wool.

    The Navy quit using Kersey as a cost cutting measure back in 1980. I'm not aware of any other company using it.

    Shame. I would like a covert or crombie style coat made from the material.

    Haha, will be back in the gym soon. My clothes are starting to not fit me :( I Love the look of the kersay wool coats. They are around $200+ on vintage trends in my size, they worth getting hold of one?
