This is a medium and I tried the large (it’s going back tomorrow for anyone with the OOS notifications set). I agree with @King Calder that I would love a slouchy version of this. The L is way too long in the arms and body for me to size up, it looked sloppy not comfortably oversized, but I liked having a bit more room in the chest and though body.
I had the same issue with the size up, the vibe was less cozy time and more "I got the wrong size". I did find that rolling the sleeve cuffs helped to alleviate the slop a little but the bottom hem length was still an issue.

I'd actually be really curious to know what the designers had in mind with this one, as the tight hem and the close shoulders seem like really specific choices. A lot of the styling I've seen on the web is slim with bigger pants, which looks pretty good. I think maybe we're all so geared towards bigger is better right now that anything deliberately slim almost feels wrong.

The good news is that @deborah_dbf is on SF and may be able to answer questions here ! The power of this community, enabling communication between makers and customers 💫

My size m boatbuilder fits perfect and I was trying to go for a size L pecora so I guess I saved myself a return.

For Inglese, we have a great MTM program for anyone who needs adjustments from the block pattern. It’s a little more expensive than RTW but typically not more expensive than RTW + alterations.
Is this something available year round, or only at certain times? (My apologies if it's on the site, I couldn't find it)

Always available. Same with Rota MTM and our tailoring program with Carrara

Yup

This week's drop is CAMO, Kuon part 1 + Blue Blue pt 1
It looks slightly different, but any chance that grey herringbone blouson is the same fabric as the pants last winter?
