Hi all,

I want to purchase a Prorsum coat, but don't have a chance try it on, I am asking you guys give me some suggestions.

I'm 5'8'' athlete fit. I normally wear a burberry london 40 of trench coat, or can wear a 38 only with a shirt. For most of brands, i'm a 40 or M. I tried this season's Dior homme asymmetric blazer (the one available on saks.com). It's very tight on my bust if i'm on a Size 40 (only with a tee), feel a little roomy with a size 42. I never own a piece of Prorsum so I can't really tell. Is the line runs very slim? I would really, really appreciate if someone can give me any suggestions.

Thanks in advance guys.

for me im 5'9 with a decently athletic build, and the prorsum items ive tried on were all snug. It fit me well, not too tight, but definitely not much margin for error. Im not that a big guy but not a stick like so many on here. I'd really try it on first unless you can easily return it.

I've found Prorsum stuff fit TTS. But a sportcoat I've been eying up has incredibly long sleeves and has a very long overall length.

Thank you all guys. I ended up with buying two and will return one. It has very, very long sleeve :C which I don't like. But I will keep the jacket anyway, because it really awesome.

This season's prorsum are not that slim. my SA told me it's has more room than previous seasons. For me I'm a Dior 52, but in Prorsum I'm a 50, and looks good in a 48, but only with a shirt or so.
