I need to make a return but there was no UPS label in the box. I happen to have a UPS return label from a delivery that arrived earlier in the week. Can I use that label?

I've asked that question before and Kenshawn said it was no problem. I still wrote down my actual order number just in case.

Edit: and the return went through with no problem

Thank you both.

Now I'm second guessing the return though (especially since the next size up isn't available anyway).

I bought the Doppiaa green and purple unstructured sportcoat and it's amazing but it just seems a bit short in the body for what I'm used to but after looking at the photos again online, it looks like it hits Willy at about the same spot as me (and according to the site, he's about 4" taller than me).

Picture from the site:


I'll have to get a picture of myself to compare the length but maybe this style is just supposed to be a little shorter than a suit coat or navy blazer? Or maybe I just haven't worn a sportcoat in a year so I forgot what looks right?

It's definitely cut a little shorter than more conservative sport coats. You need to try it with trousers you feel like wearing with it, and see if you like the vibe / feel comfortable with the length. I know I get very self-conscious about a suit jacket or sport coat that is too short for me (to my eyes), but for some reason I switch that calibration off when I wear something more casual/fun. You gotta trust your instincts - do you like what you see in the mirror :)

Good points. When I first tried it on, I was wearing denim and I know I'd never wear the jacket with the Oni jeans I had on yesterday... I just wanted to see how it fit in the chest and shoulders. I'll have to give it another try with trousers that I know I'd actually wear with it and see how that feels/looks.
