    I'd pass, don't half ass a double breasting. You can dress it down but you need to commit, that jacket wants to be too many things at once and ends up looking gimmicky.

    And why is it so short ? Why are so many jackets so damn short ? Tragic.

    As feminine as it appears, I highly doubt that the company is feminine at all lol.

    Hell I even checked it out... they sell knives as accessories, hahaha

    no, it's awesome (though, to be fair, not for the price). go buy it if money isn't an issue. i was debating buying the tee on grailed, but it's too large

    This would be my first long coat. Looked at the posted measurements and have no clue on what size I should go for.

    I've never sized up in Acne. So would go for your normal size (I'm between a decent sized Small/slim Medium in most brands, for reference)

    I have this coat, and I sized down one to a 46. I'm 6 ft and 155 lbs and normally get size 48 in acne stuff. So either go with your normal size or one size down since the coat has an over sized cut.

    @MaiLam
    @scenicside

    Makes sense. So I guess there's no point in sizing up like you would with other outerwear to make room for layering since Acne's coats are oversized.

    Usually I wear M or L depending on the brand. M however usually runs to be very snug on me whereas L is slightly more roomy. Would you guys say M or L for the Charlie Jacket (slim cut version) and similarly the Charles?

    Did you ever find your perfect Raf derby alternative or are those AnnD meant to fill the void ?

    I got a pair of Church's Newbridge then sold them. Haven't found anything since. Figured a thick sole looks better and is more practical in winter than a topied sole.
