Trying to decide whether to sell or keep. Always felt it fits perfect as long as I don't move, but sleeves are short when I do (I don't often find myself with hands up or in a fist fight, but you get the idea).

Wearing the striped shirt to create some contrast, not usually how I style this.
What others have said. Keep. Any jacket with sleeves tailored to the correct length will have a bit more shirt cuff showing when you raise your arms. Looks perfect to me.

This is the padded blazer from a few seasons ago, right? The body looks a little short (probably the style), but the sleeves look perfect to me. I wouldn't be a stickler for dimensions on a casual jacket in any event.

From experience, you'll wear this with a crewneck sweater more often than over a shirt. You're going to really enjoy wearing this jacket - not sure if you just acquired but if you did, congrats, that's a style that a lot of people ask us about quite often.

@gdl203 @conceptual 4est question guys - the site says that these are "true to US size" but the measurements for a Medium show a 31" waist and a Large show a 32". that seems a touch small? or are the measurements slightly off? will the waist stretch at all?
Hmm good question. I didn't get a chance to try this on in my usual size but I know Kenshawn did, and he said the large worked out well for him. He's about a 34" waist so I think that's why he said go TTS on them. Maybe the smaller waist measurements are because it sits higher on the waist?

Fit looks good to me but as you alluded to this style definitely works best with something different underneath. I think it really shines with a crewneck or turtleneck sweater and some jeans / chinos / corduroys. I used to wear mine a lot with either jeans or navy blue twill chinos.

He said small for a 34” waist was ok?
Or did you mean a different size?

@DoubleDouble is the type of guy to pass on Traveler coats and not text models back. He truly plays by his own rules.

I sold mine in that color on grailed several years ago (maybe 5?) during a move and have regretted it ever since.

Sorry, brain fart. Just edited my post but he said that the large fit him well.

Excuse me while I go yell at them in a nasty email. They’re supposed to be the same exact style - which we actually developed with them via multiple prototypes 🤦‍♂️ ugh
I'm interested to know how this email discussion will go. If possible, please let Inglese know that the 30" version is more appropriate for the camp collar shirts, and 32" is better for sport jackets :)

😂 for clarification I've worn and loved this one. Unlike the Traveler.

That is usually how I wear it. Had it for two years now, but sometimes the fabric pulls hard when moving around, and not being used to wearing blazers I don't really know what's normal.

I bought it on on G 2 years ago. Looks like there's a gray one in size 2 for cheap right now.
