    I'm going to disagree with @gdl203 here. I think that some types of coats just look better fitted, and this is one of them. Parkas, duffle coats, etc... I think can look really good a big oversized, but I like a single-breasted, quarter-length, coat, looks best the way it fits on you now.

    I know that I'm the barbarian at the gates...

    but I never said anything about oversized. I wouldn't consider the next size up as oversized given what he is currently wearing under the coat, what he may add under the coat and the way it currently fits.

    @mktitsworth I bought and used a lot of hangers in my life and concluded a few years ago that the ones that offered great contoured support without also taking up an inordinate amount of space in my closet (love my fancy wooden ones but they just take too much space with their forward bent) are the heavy composite hangers that all the very high end Italian companies use. Borrelli, Isaia, Kiton... all use that same hanger - because it's honestly awesome. They just order it in different colors (beige, grey, etc...). So the hanger decision at NoMan was one of the easiest one - I knew exactly which hangers I wanted.

    That was a long nerdy answer but tl;dr : it's a heavy plastic hanger that is also what populates my personal closet

    Kop one and end your jealousy!!

    -

    Have to say that Greg is spot on about the hanger. I also found myself getting rid of all the very wide hangers that I have just so I could make space for more awesome clothing. This hanger is perfect.

    My sartorio by kiton hangar is the same thing. Id buy 10 if i knew where to.

    That was a good article: perfect for us fantasists. Your wife sounds like a cool lady; it's nice when our companions share our aesthetic passions. A welcome change of pace from posters who treat their shopping like a bad gambling habit and talk about smuggling things into the house -- which would be laughable if it weren't sad.
    Not uncommonly seen in use by Italian tailors of repute, too.

    looking forward to seeing the navy casentino.

    Update on the Casentino: this is over a medium duty wool pullover. Sleeves are short, but that's just an idiosyncrasy (usually have to let my jacket sleeves out from RTW). Otherwise, shoulders are good, upper body feels snug but not packed, however movement is slightly restricted.

    Details on size, for the public benefit: I am normally a 52L in RTW, except measurements on my jackets correspond more closely to the 50 in the Formosa on NMWA (apart from length). Thus, I ordered a 52 because the shoulders etc. seemed to be one size up from those parameters. The 54 should be arriving shortly, at which point further testing shall be conducted.

    In any case, I reiterate my appreciation at the feel and the look of the coat. It is absolutely superb - pick one up while you still can, and I'm just crossing my fingers that the 54 fits well.

    (P.S. Sorry Greg/Edouard about doing the size juggling thing.)
