I was recently at a Brooks Bros. trying on one of their Brookstorm overcoats. When trying on suit jackets, I usually need 44R to fit my shoulders, but I always need to have the midsection taken in a couple of inches. I found a 44R Brookstorm that fit my shoulders well, but as expected it was too large around the middle. However, the salesperson said that overcoats could not be tailored like suits. Hence - too bad for me. I find this hard to believe, as this presumes that these coats will fit only one body type. Was she correct?
