Ok. I think it’s going to be the KS Traveler in navy, size 40 (TTS) for me. Use case is to make this my “one coat”—wear it casually but also over a suit. I’m tall/slim (6’2”, 170 lbs), but I’m going to embrace the volume and not risk it with the sleeves if I size down. Anybody going to talk me out of this?
Definitely go TTS with the Traveler. I'm 5'10" and the sleeve length of my size 40 is perfect--it ends right past where my wrist meets my hand. The Traveler would make a wonderful OneCoat. The only reason to have second thoughts is if your location rarely goes below 40 degrees. The coat is a beast (although Greg said this season's wool is slightly lighter than last season's) and you may get more use out of a lighter coat.

Perfect. Thanks. I’m in DC, so we get our chillier days...

Howdy neighbor. :cheers: The Traveler is great for the colder DC days. The only reason I haven't worn mine yet is because my only time outdoors is between my apartment and the grocery store/restaurant for takeout.

Okay. I procrastinate. Well mostly it’s work killing me right now. Need to get my traveler order in. Really stuck between Navy and Beige. I think I’m actually leaning Navy. I just wish the beige was a bit darker. Someone talk me into either. I can’t make decisions...

5'9" 160 and my regular size is a 42...I received a lot of advice here to size down but my arms require 35" sleeves... So confused. Also I live in Houston so this is totally superfluous...

Well, I'm going navy. I spent a lot of time looking at the photos. And if you take a deep breath and look at the navy, it's just perfect.

Beige will look better in fit pics.

I say Navy will be more versatile and easier to just grab and go.

Allured by pictures from you guys, nothing can stop me ordering the KS traveller. Credit card provider detected my transaction to NMWL as fraud activity. Spent two days with bank solving the issue and now it went through.
